Tips for Families

Get to The Wizarding World first thing in the morning to hit the castle and rides then wander the town. Other good times appeared to be lunch and late afternoon/evening. If you are a Potter fan, the experience can"t be topped unless maybe by touring the studio in England which is on our bucketlist.

Tips for Families

I would recommend staying at a hotel that is a Universal partner hotel so you can get into Harry Potter World before the other guests at Universal. We got right into the Forbidden Journey without a wait and the wait later in the day was around 45 minuties.

I would suggest to staying at one of Universals on-site hotels and take advantage of the Express Pass at Universal Studios. Its free when you stay at their hotels and its sooo worth it! Its saves so much time. We loved it!

Make sure you have all personal belongings and items stored in a secure bag where you can see it. If there is an available area to lock up your personal items, USE THAT AREA!!!

"Whether you come back by page or by the big screen, Hogwarts will always be there to welcome you home." J.K. Rowling If I could have made the Hogwarts castle at Islands of Adventure home, I would have. It was THAT cool. Of course, it was short and the animated images and videos of Dumbledore, Harry, Hermoine and Ron were a little cheesy, I don't really care. Dumbledore's desk was worth the 14 mile walk to the Wizarding World of Harry Potter. It was so true to the film and books. I was surprised. When you first walk in, there sits the Hogwarts Express with a real live train conductor there to greet you and take pictures with you and your children. He even had the fake British accent that we all loved in the ...

I'm such a big fan of Harry Potter that I named our wireless router "The Leaky Cauldron". And at some point, I believed that deatheaters and other dark forces were lurking outside my apartment so I felt the need to perform a series of enchantment spells to protect my abode. I'm weird,  I know.... Hey, let's talk about that BUTTERBEER huh!  ;-) OMG. You want to talk about the line for butterbeer? it took the same amount of time lining up for butterbeer as the Forbidden Journey ride. (20 mins!) was it all worth it? YES! That butterbeer reminded me of a sweet combo reminiscent of vanilla and butterscotch flavors. The light cream on top was the icing on the cake! (or icing on the beer!) I got the frozen version ...

EVERY HP FANATIC'S DREAM COME TRUE, LITERALLY!  When I found out I was going to Orlando,  I knew it was a must to come to Universal JUST FOR THIS!  I'm telling you, I never knew I could be so excited to go to a theme park!  Once we stepped foot into Universal, my boyfriend and I spedwalked to the back of the park where this AMAZING FEAT was located!  And my oh my was I just fascinated, overwhelmed, and in shock of how realistic everything was.  I literally felt like I was a character in the movie.  I could not stop smiling or get rid of this bubbly feeling I had in my stomach.  Just typing this up is making me bubble up inside.   We only had a day there so our main priority was Harry Potter World!  We went o...

A-MAZING!! I was soooo excited to come here, but I'm also glad that we waited until the crowds died down and the kids went back to school to come visit. We had no problems with any lines. The longest line was for Ollivander's, which they said was an hour, but was probably closer to 30 minutes. It was worth it though because I got my wand! You can buy character replica wands throughout Universal, but at Ollivander's they have some exclusive "special" wands only available there. RIDES - Forbidden Journey was like Spiderman on steroids (minus 3D) and we only waited 15 minutes or so. Dragon Challenge (no wait) made me realize that with old(er) age comes increased dizziness. We agreed that the Chinese Fireball wa...
