We so loved it! Huge HP fans and this was amazing. We went during peak spring break so it was really tough, but it was so incredible. The special details, my daughter has read all the books, watched all the movies, she was so impressed. If you want to visit both a Hogwarts and Diagon alley you’ll need 2park admission to ride Hogwarts express to and from those 2. If you’re an HP fan, it’s a must do.

If you are a Potter fan, this is by far the best part of the park! The buildings, the visuals, and all the parts of the book that come to life before your eyes in the buildings and while you wait for rides are truly amazing! The shops have very creatively recreated shops from the book and food and merchandise brings the book's magical items described in the book to life as well! So much fun discovering.

Word of caution: wizard wands are roughly $40 for non-working replicas, and about $54 for "optical interactive" capable wands, each! Also the wizard robes were roughly $115 each! Our kids, 7yo and 9yo really got tired of waiting in line for all the spots where their wands would perform "magic". However, no matter the temperature, they wanted to wear their robes and enjoyed the hidden want pocket inside their robes! Not sure how much use the robes will get back home.

It is amazing how Universal has created this magical world! Try to get there early, though, because it will get BUSY! If you like Harry Potter, the price is worth it.

As soon as you step in it’s like magic. My daughter bought an interactive wand and we got to ride the 2 hour long wait ride. It’s so cool that there’s no words.

Any Harry Potter fan must do this!!

Get some butter beer, real beer (wizards brew)

The detail of this place is unreal. I felt like I literally entered the wizarding world. So immersive and has so many little details of the things you love from the books and movies.

I could spend days just in Diagonal Alley.

The butter beer is fantastic. Get your wand, pack your bag and board the hogwarts express!!
