How to Experience The Wizarding World of Harry Potter

Jan 5, 2023

Emily Kaufman: Through seven books and eight movies, the adventures of Harry Potter™ have captivated both young and old alike. And now, you can enter the magic and excitement for yourself right here in the two uniquely different lands of The Wizarding World of Harry Potter™, one located in each of Universal Orlando’s theme parks. At Universal’s Islands of Adventure®, you’ll find The Wizarding World of Harry Potter™ – Hogsmeade™, where you can grab a bite at the Three Broomsticks™. You can shop for sweets at Honeydukes™ and pick up some of Bertie Bott’s Every Flavour Beans™. Rotten Egg…yum. In this land, you’ll find exciting rides like Dragon Challenge™ and Flight of the Hippogriff™. Then, explore the classrooms and corridors of Hogwarts™ castle. [Harry Potter™ film score] And go soaring on the amazing adventure Harry Potter and the Forbidden Journey™.


It’s time for a cool and refreshing Butterbeer™. This tasty non-alcoholic beverage was developed specifically for The Wizarding World of Harry Potter™. It’s available cold or frozen. Oh wow! Ahh. Next door at Universal Studios®, you can explore The Wizarding World of Harry Potter™ – Diagon Alley™. Here, in this land, you can dine on authentic British food at the Leaky Cauldron™. Stop by Weasleys’ Wizard Wheezes and other fun shops. Explore the dark and dingy Knockturn Alley. Visit Ollivanders™ where you can see a wand choose a wizard in a unique interactive experience. And, enter Gringotts™ bank, where you’ll experience the new multi-dimensional 3-D thrill ride Harry Potter and the Escape from Gringotts™. In addition, if you have a Park-to-Park admission ticket, you can take the Hogwarts™ Express from one land to the other.


With two amazing lands, it’s two unique theme park experiences creating one unforgettable adventure. When you book at room at one of Universal Orlando’s on-site hotels, or when you book a package through Universal Parks and Resorts Vacations, you get Early Park Admission to The Wizarding World of Harry Potter™ an hour before the general public. That’s a great perk. If you want the latest updates on The Wizarding World of Harry Potter™ and all Universal Orlando®, sign up online at I need to ride Dragon Challenge™ again.
