  • Fantastic place, when you visit make sure you take a lot of money because you are going to want to buy everything !!! It is very tidy and the lines move fast, do not forget your cameras as there are.....  more »
  • This section of Universal Studios was the most crowded section during our time at the park. Understandably so, because it is amazing. But it was frustrating to try to work our way around that area...  more »

  • The light show was short but really good. The ride is great and worth the wait. Love how all the employees were good at staying in character. Definitely worth a visit if you're a potter fan.
  • Awesome! Very fun experience the Christmas light show at Hogwarts was amazing. Don't be tricked by the line for the wand fitting though an hour and a half in line for a 5 minute recreation of the scene where they choose the childs wand. They randomly selected a kid from the crowd made them feel special gave them the chosen ones wand and then proceeded to usher us into the shop to purchase expensive wands and things. The kids parents still had to pay for the wand the kid received in the show but at a discounted price. Way to use a child to gain a sale. How do you tell your child I'm sorry I can't afford to pay 70 dollars for the wand that chose you I'm sorry baby
