Episode 5: Wizarding World of Harry Potter Tour
Today’s episode in my 7 Days to a Better Universal Orlando Vacation series is a virtual tour of the Wizarding World of Harry Potter at Universal Studios Florida and Islands of Adventure.
The Wizarding World of Harry Potter is located inside both the Universal Studios Florida park and the Islands of Adventure park. In Universal Studios you’ll find Diagon Alley, and in Islands of Adventure you’ll find Hogsmeade Village and Hogwarts Castle. The Hogwarts Express train runs between these two areas.
You will need a 2-park ticket to go to both Diagon Alley and Hogsmeade Village in the same day. In my opinion, it is well worth the additional cost.
Some of the attractions, and other magic, we’ll discuss:
Ollivander’s Wand Shop
Harry Potter and the Forbidden Journey ride
Shopping in the Wizarding World
Hogsmeade Train Station
Kings Cross Station
The Knight Bus
No 12 Grimmauld Place
Stepping into Diagon Alley
The Gringotts Dragon
The Layout of Diagon Alley
Shopping and dining in Diagon Alley
Harry Potter and the Escape from Gringotts ride
