The Harry Potter area at Universal feels magical
Jul 2021
We actually come here a lot and it feels so good entering Hogsmeade. It's so immersive. The Butterbeer is yummy too!

Very cool part of Islands of Adventure
Jul 2021
Very cool area of Islands of Adventure. Virtual queue for Hagrids ride is very hard to get. Be at the park at opening. very limited food options and the wait for food is as long as the ride wait times. It is an experience but not a Disney experience. Universal has some work to do.

I couldn't wait to see this..
Jul 2021
What a disappointment! Small, crowded, expensive, will never go back. More staff needed for the amount of people. Watching the movies is a better experience than this.

Rude staff on the Hagrid ride
Jul 2021
We usually come every year to Harry Potter world. First day the Hagrid ride wasn't working. The next day the staff was so rude to my daughter they gave her a panic attack. The Third day We figured we try again (my one daughter refused to even try.). This time one of the staff members yell at people in the line and then when I was getting off was rude to me. We did complain at guest services hoping they get some better staff in there and fix the attitude issues with the staff. Other rides we had no issues. Food has gone down hill steadily since they opened. Used to look forward to it and now it looks crappy and the service is crappy. They cancelled the meal plans midway through our stay without warning which cost us more money. That was a nice "screw-you" from the corporate offices as they had no other options ready or a better plan for families to enjoy their stay. I have to say for the first time in a few years Disney did a better job of entertaining us and had more new stuff.

Fun, Social, depressing renovations but Wizarding world hasnt suffered much from that yet
Jul 2021
4 stars for not being disney and having SOME architectural integrity left . They do need to do some restoration (rather than disney's renovations ) but it's significantly better than Disney. It's more social and classy than Disney and the moms are hotter . The hotel renovations though, they suck, and they need to do a restoration opposed to renovation. If you agree make sure to tell them next time you're there. The original Portofino and Hard Rock and Royal Pacific were architectural gems till they ruined the inside of them . This can be fixed with a restoration.
I will say that the fun factor of wizarding world is 100x that of anything disney can touch and I hope that universal appreciates the constructive criticisim enough to do some restoration that fits the architects original renditions as that's the only thing that matters to patrons. A lot of the stuff that made universal good has since been traded off and that should be looked into. Because I think there's potential there and for NOT training their employees like Disney I almost gave them 5 stars.

Magically immersive experience
Jun 2021 • Family
Wow! You really feel like you’re in the middle of the movie! Every detail is immaculately done! Make sure you get an interactive wand to test your magic skills throughout both parks. Catch the Hogwarts express to travel between Hogsmeade and DiagonAlley. Stop in the restrooms in Hogsmeade to hear the sounds or Moaning Myrtle. The attention to detail is just amazing in every aspect of The Wizarding World!

The Harry Potter rides take you through your favorite scenes in the movies with your favorite characters.

I just can’t say enough about this completely immersive experience!

Exciting.
Jul 2021 • Family
Fantastic experience for our family of Harry Potter world fans. It’s very crowded since it’s such a popular attraction but we had lots of fun visiting the Hogwarts castle ride and The escape from Gringotts. Sadly we didn’t have a chance to experience the Hagrid’s ride since we waited in a line for two hours before it was announced the ride would be postponed due to the weather conditions and never actually happened that day. Both Diagon Alley and Hogsmeade are very busy with the latter almost impossible to get through due to the crowds. The Tales of Beedle the Bard were the highlight of this three day experience. Fantastic show!
