      There are many reasons to visit Universal Orlando, which consists of two theme parks in one - Universal Studios and Islands Of Adventure. With a variety of thrill rides, live entertainment and other attractions, the complex offers something to delight everyone. But the newest and perhaps best reason to spend a day at Universal is The Wizarding World Of Harry Potter, which replicates in incredibly faithful detail the experience of taking a stroll through Hogsmeade and Hogwarts. You can even buy your own distinctive magic wand. The centerpiece of the adventure is Harry Potter and the Forbidden Journey, an enchanting ride that convincingly simulates a ride on your broomstick through the terrain around Hogwarts, where you'll encounter a quidditch match and even a cantankerous dragon. Even waiting in line for this attraction is worth the time, as there are so many displays that bring the magic to life.

      If you go:
      Open every day, all year long, at 9:00 a.m. Closing times will vary. A kennel is available for cats and dogs for a fee. You easily can spend an entire day with Harry Potter, so plan on a multi-day ticket to experience all of Universal's attractions. You can avoid standing in long lines by purchasing an express pass, or by breaking up your party and using the single rider line for some attractions.
