Vacation Travel Guide

The Wizarding World of Harry Potter™ which includes railway items and rides as well as an individual male

Enter a fantasy world of wizards, witches, magic spells and thrilling rides at two of Orlando’s most popular theme parks.

The Wizarding World of Harry Potter™ brings fantasy dreams to life at Universal Studios FloridaTM and Universal’s Islands of Adventure theme parks. Journey through a magical landscape to meet mythical creatures against a backdrop of soaring castles and mysterious alleys. Dare to ride deep underground on Harry Potter and the Escape from Gringotts™.

Board the Hogwarts™ Express and watch exciting scenes from the train window. Expect surprises in your own compartment. Disembark at the village of Hogsmeade™ to explore spooky corridors, Dumbledore’s office and the Defence Against the Dark Arts at Hogwarts™ Castle. Fly above the castle with your favorite characters on the Harry Potter and the Forbidden Journey™ride.

For family-friendly roller coaster thrills, meet Hagrid and zoom through the Forbidden Forest on the Flight of the Hippogriff™. On the ground, venture into the streets of London and Diagon Alley™. Stop at Ollivanders™, Makers of Fine Wands Since 382 BC to find the perfect wand.

Spellbinding gifts, trinkets and magic supplies fill the shops of both theme parks. Visit Filch’s Emporium™ of Confiscated Goods for clothing, house crests, maps and movie prop replicas. Colorful candy decorates Honeydukes™, where you’ll find Fizzing Whizzbees and Chocolate FrogsTM. Send your postcards from the Owl Post™ for a Hogsmeade™ postmark.

Dining is a treat for the taste buds, with a magical twist. Try Butterbeer™ and cottage pie at the Leaky Cauldron™ or choose from imaginative flavors at Florean Fortescue’s Ice-Cream Parlour. The Three Broomsticks™ restaurant greets guests with a snow-capped roof and impressive chandeliers inside. Sample sweet Pumpkin Juice™ for breakfast.

For the perfect ending to your fantasy adventure, plan to stay after dark. See the sparkling display of music and light projections that fill the sky with magic during the Nighttime Lights at Hogwarts™ Castle event.

The Wizarding World of Harry Potter™ is separated between Universal Studios Florida and Universal’s Islands of Adventure, connected by the Hogwarts™ Express. It’s open daily. Guests need Park-to-Park admission tickets or annual passes to experience both. Find numerous great resorts surrounding the area and offering shuttle bus services. Parking is available on site at an additional cost.
