    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 Read more

    Get the frozen butterbeer!

    Go inside to Hog's Head Bar for butterbeer instead of waiting outside at the cart. Much quicker and a lot cooler.

    Harry Potter World was freakin' awesome! Try the butter beer.

    Kelly Clarkson · August 3, 2012
  • Fionna

    Be sure to ride the Forbidden Journey, line wait is the longest but the line keeps moving. It's totally worth it!

    Follow the golden snitch.

    1 word. Butterbeer.

    Please stop dropping the caps to your Pumpkin Juice!

    Try the ButterBeer and spot it on Foodspotting!

    Hogwarts ride is a must! :) and the wait is very entertaining once you get inside!

    Stephanie B. · July 11, 2010
  • Orlando Informer

    In 2014 you'll actually be able to ride the Hogwarts Express!

    Orlando Informer · August 11, 2012
  • Brittany K.

    Don't wait in line for Olivander's.

    Brittany K. · September 5, 2010
  • Liz B.

    Try the butterbeer frozen from inside the Three Broomsticks..it's not as melted as the outside option and tastes better.

    Liz B. · June 29, 2010
  • Samantha M.

    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.

    Samantha M. · November 14, 2010
  • Heather

    Come @ park opening on a weekday & go straight to Forbidden Journey. Skip Ollivander's, only 1 chosen & it'll be a child.

    Heather · September 18, 2010
  • Casey C.

    GO TO OLLIVANDER'S FIRST. The line fills up quick, and unlike the rides, there's no shade and no entertainment.

    Casey C. · November 18, 2010
  • Michael S.

    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.

    Michael S. · June 22, 2010
  • Corrine H.

    Castle ride is hands down one of the most impressive rides I've ever been on

    Corrine H. · October 17, 2010
  • Orlando Informer

    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.

  • Ryan R.

    Don't skip the line. The line is better than the ride! You miss a ton in standby!

    Ryan R. · March 13, 2011
  • Lianne F.

    Don't bother waiting in line for the "wand selection" at Ollivanders takes 45 min to an hour or MORE. Only one is chosen out of your group....just go by a wand at the shop.

    Lianne F. · August 31, 2010
  • Kyle O.

    pretty cool ride.

    Kyle O. · November 3, 2011
  • Alicia P.

    at first glance when you enter, your jaw drops! the place is gorgeous and the detail they put into making the stores is awesome! the food there is okay, right now the lines are long to get into stores

    Alicia P. · September 1, 2010
  • Alyssa C.

    Do NOT wait in line at the wand shop. Biggest waste of life. Also, definitely ride the Wizarding world of Harry Potter. Life changing.

    Alyssa C. · November 25, 2010
  • Joe M.

    Full of muggles. Ugh.

    Joe M. · July 3, 2013

    Hog's Head Bar is a MUCH SHORTER LINE for Butterbeer than outside at the cart. It's also much colder and AIR CONDITIONED INSIDE!

    PopWrapped! · March 14, 2013
  • Byron H.

    Eat at the Three Broomsticks! My wife and I shared a chicken and rib platter and it was excellent. I also suggest the frozen butterbeer!

    Byron H. · November 15, 2011
  • Orlando P.

    Single rider line is the way to go...in and out in 15 minutes!

    Orlando P. · June 18, 2011
  • Shireen M.

    Funny that -- It's an English film, but the Theme park is in AMERICA!! How does that work exactly?!

    Shireen M. · January 15, 2011
  • Kristin A.

    The ride is amazing, the butterbeer is delicious, and the whole place is just fantastic. I encourage all Harry Potter nerds to go!

    Kristin A. · October 24, 2010
  • Sean M.

    Wear deodorant and don't fart in the stores. Butterbeeeeer!

    Sean M. · May 28, 2012
  • Lauren K.

    Get frozen butterbeer. Ride in the first row of dragon challenge. Be amazed on the forbidden journey.

    Lauren K. · June 7, 2011
  • Elana J.

    Head straight to the castle, then Olivanders :)

    Elana J. · May 7, 2011
  • Niki S.

    Since WWWOHP just opened on June 18th, it's pretty crowded. I suggest seeing the rest of the park first and hitting WWWOHP in the afternoon.

    Niki S. · July 9, 2010

    Single rider line. No wait.

    "Christopher C. · March 21, 2012

    Go first thing in the morning and get on the Forbidden Journey. Be sure to try the food at the Three Broomsticks and frozen Butterbeer!

    Catherine W. · May 15, 2011
  • Ana

    don't wait in line to get into that section of the park, go straight thru the lost continent! go to the farthest store in that section, find lockers inside, pass thru and bypass half the line! :)

    Ana · January 5, 2011
  • Sarah C.

    Pumpkin juice is delicious!

    Ask everyone with red hair of they're a Weasley!

  • Joe G.

    Get yourself a butterbeer and enjoy a wait in line!

    Joe G. · March 4, 2011
  • Erin M.

    Seriously worth staying on property and getting in early. We experienced everything in less than 90 min with no lines.

    Erin M. · January 13, 2011
  • Jessica B.

    Avoid coming on the weekend. Do Forbidden Journey first

    Jessica B. · September 11, 2010
  • Roberto V.

    Enjoy the park, don't mind the lines, if you want to get a wand and not see the show go through Dervish and Banges.

    Roberto V. · July 31, 2010
  • Donna L.

    In these early days, stay at a Universal property for 1 hr extra in the a.m. and be there by 7:15. They can open early to cue. Hit Olivander's wands FIRST (if you want one), then the castle. Read more

    Yipppiiiiiieeeeee!!!!! :)
