even a casual admirer. After years of books, movies and tons of collectors' paraphernalia, the series has gotten even more accessible in this intricately-designed amusement park that re-creates the wizarding world. Fans will love visiting Hogwarts, exploring the Hogwarts Express and strolling through Hogsmeade. Many of the shops and locations mentioned in the books are available for visitors to explore and purchase goods. Fan favorites are real Butterbeer, Bertie Bott’s Every-Flavour Beans, wands from Ollivander's and even life-sized brooms.

Universal may suck, but the Wizarding World doesn’t! It’s really immersive, and the merchandise available is typically good quality! You must try butterbeer and a cauldron cake!

This place is amazing even if you aren't a Harry Potter fan! Note that the rides are all more adult-oriented (I'm a chicken who suffers from motion sickness so I couldn't ride anything) but even non-riders can enjoy the incredible attention to detail. And get the butterbeer! It's a nonalcoholic butterscotch Slurpee!

Are you Harry Potter fanatics like us? Visit the Wizarding World of Harry Potter and sip on butterbeer, pick up your very own wand, indulge in magical candies at Honeydukes, and get your pranks on at Weasley's Wizard Wheezes. The Wizarding World of Harry Potter is a two park adventure, meaning you will need a ticket to both parks to enjoy both Hogsmeade and Diagon Alley. Don't forget to ride the Hogwart's Express!

Love this place. Always makes magic feel so real. My only wish is that it wasn't always so packed. Too many tourists.

Amazing experience for Harry Potter fans! The rides are cool but most spectacular is the reproduction of the magical world in great loving detail. A few practical tips: The Hogsmeade/Hogwarts is in a separate park from London/Diagon Alley. You will need to buy a 2-Park pass to See both. You can start in either park and will take the Hogwarts Express train (a very cool ride in and of itself) to get to the other park. For those who want an early start: Park opens at 9am but I recommend getting to the parking at 8am because it takes 30 min to walk through the City Walk shopping to get to the HP world entrance. The Hogwarts Ride has the best queue ever... you wind through the castle classrooms, halls and even Dumbeldore’s study. But the ride was too intense for my 1st grader. She survived but was a little traumatized.

I'm not a Harry Potter fan, but have been here twice. It's good fun and there are state of the art rides. However one time one ride broken down part way through leaving us dangling for about 20 minutes. When it restarted we were zoomed straight out, rather than continue and I couldn't be bothered to queue up again - hence I have put four rather than five stars.

Hogwarts Express was a good idea to the other park and we enjoyed the shadows on that!

Have to say I wan't keen on butter beer, but was impressed with the little details like the wand shop and post office, etc.

All in all good fun, but prefer other areas of Universal.

If you are a Harry Potter fan it is a must see!

Any Harry Potter nerd's dream -- The Wizarding World of Harry Potter is an immersive experience that brings the HP universe to life. Literally. There are two villages/parts - one in each of Universal's parks- so if you want to see both Hogsmeade and Diagon Alley, be sure to have a park hopper pass. Then you can take the Hogwarts Express between the two, and explore Diagon Alley, including Gringotts, Weasley's Wizarding Wheezes, Ollivander's wand shop, the quidditch store, Madame Malkin's robe shop, and other school supply stores, plus Knockturn Alley, in the studios park -- then Hogsmeade, including the Three Broomsticks (butterbeer!), an interactive wand picking show, Hogwarts castle, and the dueling dragons roller coaster, in Islands of Adventure.
