My son and I went shortly after the Harry Potter World opened, in January of 2011. It was packed to the gills. They let too many people in at one time and it was difficult to even move around. At one point my 6-year-old son pulled away from me and he was instantly absorbed by the crowd. I freaked out and found a security guard, and after 20 minutes of agony we were finally reunited, but I can never get over that feeling of panic, and the suffocating press of all those people. Then we went on the big ride, never seeing any kind of height sign because of all the people, waited over 90 minutes and when we got to the front of the ride, the attendant pulled out a yardstick and pronounced my son too short -- by about 1/16 of an inch! It was ridiculous. If he was just smart enough to stretch his neck a little he could have made it but he was too young and naive, and didn't know what was going on.. So we were turned away. I filed a complaint at the front office, but they couldn't care less. I felt so abused and mistreated.

Fun to see Diagon Alley, but boy was it packed. We bolted to it as soon as the gates opened, but were surprised to see it was absolutely packed. The wand store was ridiculously detailed and interesting but can you say claustrophobia? Not an inch to move there were so many people. The rest of the park was cool to see, Springfield with the Simpsons was fun, especially as a fan of the show. Probably the best food lies here. Ride wait times were ungodly, typical peak season wait times. Not wanting to pay double for express pass use, we decided on regular tickets, big mistake. Everything was 45 minute wait and of course the major rides, like Gringotts, Despicable Me, and the Rip Ride Rocket, were at 75 min to 125 min wait times from 9am to 10pm at night. Insane.... Didn't even attempt to ride. Overall, slightly let down, but glad to see Harry Potter Diagon alley theme and the Simpsons, Hollywood was neat aswell as NYC. Just did not have the same feel as a Disney park. Fastpass being included in the ticket helps too.

In the year 2000 we bought two tickets. The deal, at that time was if you don't use any of the days left on the tickets it was good for the same people (with ID) ANYTIME in the future. So now it's 2015 and we called guest services to check if we have one or two days left on those tickets. They said it's new electronic equipment and you will need to drive to the park to get them scanned. Oh yeah - we'll just drive 2400 miles round trip to get that answer. There are numbers as a part of the scanner code but they said that won't do to check the validity. I said I'll send the tickets with photo ID - but they keep saying just drive to the park to get an answer. What a scam !!! Wonder if Disney treat customers like that. Their deal that they will do anything to get out of. Bet if we ever went there they would lie & say that the tickets are no good. Nothing on the back of the ticket that states that we have to do this crap.

We were at Universal on Thursday April 16th, 2015. Upon arriving we met a really great welcome person who scanned our tickets and was very nice, first impression = great. The rides were all awesome and the Harry Potter sections are just like being in the movie...it's spectacular. Universal knows this and offers NOTHING in the way of customer service and doesn't seem to care AT ALL that you've spent over $600 for a park hopper pass for four people. The park was only open until 6pm...not nearly long enough to do all the rides at both parks. The food was okay though more expensive than Disney and we ordered Churo's that were so stale they were hard and crunchy. When I asked for a new one, I was told they didn't do that. Then, at about 5:45 we wanted to do the E.T. ride...we ran over and were happy to see we were allowed to go on it despite the ride having a 25 minute wait time. After the ride, we went through to the gift shop where you're supposed to be able to see your picture and were told very rudely by the guy working there that the park had been closed for 20 minutes and the gift shop was closed...no picture and it was time to "exit the park". They don't store your pictures for you for any length of time either. Disney will hold them for 30 days after your trip so you can buy them when you get home and look over all of them...Universal doesn't. If you don't buy it that day you don't get it. We also purchased a turkey leg to share that day and it made us all sick. None of us ate anything else until dinner the next day. Unless you're a die hard Harry Potter fan (it really is an amazing thing to see), save your money and do any number of other things available to you in Florida. If you do go, be aware that there isn't much in the way of Harry Potter souvenirs available outside of the Harry Potter area. If you have the thought that we had, that you'd get them on your way out...you can't. All in all, the rides were good, I'm happy we saw Harry Potter but the whole experience was a little underwhelming. The greeter at the start of the day and the guy who worked in the Jurassic Park gift shop that showed us our picture were the only two people we came across that treated us well and seemed happy we were there.

Universal sought to create a Disney type experience and they sure succeeded!!! Disney has just about priced themselves out of most people's budgets, but that's not the case with Universal. We always buy annual passes because its my children's FAVORITE place to go. Its not cheap, but its doable and they have reasonable payment plans (which I used one year). I got the best advice for our first trip from the phone ticket agent. She was amazing. Harry Potter World is a huge draw so be prepared for crowds and very few places to sit down and rest. We generally have to sit down right on the ground or on a curb, but that's the only negative thing I've ever had an issue with. I think that is designed to keep people moving. If you want to beat the crowds to eat, go at off hours. I highly recommend The Three Broomsticks restaurant in Harry Potter World. When you go through the line they take you to your table so you are not wandering around looking for a place to sit carrying this big tray of food because people have gotten out of line and are holding tables. (A practice that really aggravates most people because by the time those people get to the food counter someone ahead of them could be seated and through eating.) However, if you are feeling snacky there are plenty of vendor kiosks throughout the parks. Almost all of them sell chilled fresh fruit and water which is the better thing to eat while on vacation because it gives you more natural energy. Its a great snack for kids, too. Some people may not realize that the Harry Potter experience spills over into both parks. You have to have a park hopper ticket to explore all of it. Diagon Alley is in Universal Studios (psst....the entrance is a secret so there will be no signs pointing to it....and the park employees won't tell you either. You have to find it yourself. ) Its so cool! The only reason I found it was by spotting the dragon from a good distance across the park. You won't see it close to the entrance to DA at all. The maps will tell you the area, but when you get there you'll be saying, "Where is it at?" Hint: just start exploring unmarked arched entrances. Don't miss this area, its so authentic. There is a guy in there that will mix you a "medicinal" potion...its just flavored water, but cool never the less. Hogwarts express goes between both parks so you need to have park hopper tickets or an annual pass to ride it. There is a place where you run through the wall to get to the special train platform....really cool. The staff couldn't be more nice. One trip I had a staff member chat me up about my vacation and she asked our favorite ride in the area we were in. My children said the Jurassic Park boat ride. She said, "Would you like to ride it right now?" She took us to the head of the line! We thanked her and enjoyed the ride. When we got off she was waiting for us and asked if we wanted to ride it again! Wow. It really made our vacation. She wished us a great day and walked away. My kids had the biggest grins on their faces. It was awesome. I couldn't recommend Universal Studios more highly. Go ahead. You won't be disappointed.

I've only been here once, and I can tell you, I love it. The rides aren't particularly of Amusement parks, but this was a theme park. The rides didn't include roller coasters except for probably two. The others were all thrill rides, using up to date technology. One of my favorites was probably the Despicable Me one. It was very realistic for what it was. My grandma even said "Wow! This is so real!" It made her sad when we told her it was just a tv screen. Hah.

We had a wonderful time at Daigon Alley. Everything was perfect and we felt much joy being there. All of the employees were very pleasant and helpful which made the day even better. A special thanks to Kevin at The Hopping Pot for helping us find the best drinks in the Wizarding World. Also Chris at Madam Malkins did a wonderful job fitting us for our hogwarts house robes and scarves. He even offered to take photos of us! Amy at Ollivander's was very nice and did a great job with explaining the different wands. We loved our time spent at Universal's Harry Potter's Daigon Alley and are looking forward to visiting it again. Thank you all for such a memorable day!!!
