  • I got a sneak peek of this wizarding world before anyone else and I brought along a couple of knowledgeable friends. Now you can step into the shoes of Harry! - Ellen
  • Harry Potter World was freakin' awesome! Try the butter beer.
  • Be sure to ride the Forbidden Journey, line wait is the longest but the line keeps moving. It's totally worth it!
  • Listen for Moaning Myrtle in the restrooms next to Hogs Head.
  • Follow the golden snitch.
  • Watch out for Moaning Myrtle in the bathrooms!
  • 1 word. Butterbeer.
  • Make sure to say to the Hogwarts Express conductor!
  • Please stop dropping the caps to your Pumpkin Juice!
  • Get the frozen butterbeer!
  • In 2014 you'll actually be able to ride the Hogwarts Express!
  • Don't wait in line for Olivander's.
  • Visiting at night is a must. The shop windows light up with activity. In particular, watch and listen outside the musician's shop. He's not too happy with his music!
  • You don't have to wait in line at the butterbeer truck, the three broomsticks has it too, and usually with little to no line.
  • In 2014 the adventure continues as Universal Orlando presents the world's first centrally themed, multi-park experience based on the beloved stories of Harry Potter.
  • wait for the potter fanatics to thin out, usually around 6 or 7 pm, before even thinking about checking out this land... Was able to ride forbidden journey twice like this, only 35 min waits.
  • Castle ride is hands down one of the most impressive rides I've ever been on
  • Three Broomsticks is a MUST
  • Go inside to Hog's Head Bar for butterbeer instead of waiting outside at the cart. Much quicker and a lot cooler.
  • pretty cool ride.
