Episode 5: Wizarding World of Harry Potter Tour

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:

Hogsmeade Village

Interactive wands

Ollivander’s Wand Shop

Hogwarts Castle

Harry Potter and the Forbidden Journey ride

Shopping in the Wizarding World

Hagrid’s Hut
