    Be ready for this kind of magic

    Forbidden Journey

    If you are a Harry Potter fan, and your main reason to visit Universal is because you want to check out Hogwarts up close, here is your ideal guide to a perfect day at The Wizarding World of Harry Potter in Universal Studios Orlando.

    Arrival at Hogsmeade

    The first thing in our itinerary is to get into Hogsmeade. Everything in there is going to transport you to the movie, from the cobblestone streets to snow-capped roofs and the majestic Hogwarts Castle, what else could you ask?

    Flight of the Hippogriff

    Get ready to board a very fun junior roller coaster. Flight of the Hippogriff  is a family-friendly coaster that offers panoramic views of Hogsmeade. Feel the wind in your hair when you see the castle grounds on this ride, and surprise! You will find magical creatures along the way.

    Wand Shopping and Spell Casting

    You can’t skip visiting Ollivanders Wand Shop to find the perfect wand that chooses you. You can also take a stroll down Diagon Alley, where quirky shops like Weasleys' Wizard Wheezes and Magical Menagerie are waiting for you to create the best memories from this magical land.

    Lunch at Three Broomsticks

    It’s time to eat and we couldn’t recommend something better than eating at the Three Broomsticks, a rustic tavern serving traditional British fare. Indulge in Fish and Chips or Shepherd's Pie while enjoying the cozy atmosphere, and don't forget to try the famous Butterbeer, available in different versions like we told you yesterday.


    Journey Through Hogwarts: Harry Potter and the Forbidden Journey

    Forbidden Journey

    After our little lunch break, you need to head next to Hogwarts Castle for an adventure on Harry Potter and the Forbidden Journey. This technological ride combines 3D technology with practical effects, you will discover a new version of joy in the magical world of Harry, Ron, and Hermione with this ride.

    Magical Creatures and Dark Arts: Hagrid's Magical Creatures Motorbike Adventure

    Are you brave enough to go to the forbidden forest on Hagrid's Magical Creatures Motorbike Adventure? This is a high-speed roller coaster featuring twists, turns, and magical creatures that come from nowhere. This roller coaster has a world record seven launches, making it a truly fast one!

    Shopping at Honeydukes and Zonko's Joke Shop: A Sweet Goodbye

    After that ride, you will need a little bit of sugar to bring your blood levels back to normal, and you will conclude your magical day with a visit to Honeydukes, the renowned wizarding sweet shop. Try as much as you can in Bertie Bott's Every Flavor Beans, Chocolate Frogs, and other magical treats.

    Evening Glow at Hogsmeade

    The sun is setting and the night has just started, experience the magic glow of Hogsmeade. The warm lights, the silhouette of Hogwarts Castle, and the distant sounds of magical creatures create a magical ambiance that you wouldn’t feel in any other place.

    Don’t forget to Capture the moment with a photo in front of the castle before bidding farewell to this spellbinding realm. A day at The Wizarding World of Harry Potter is not just a normal theme park visit, it's a magical odyssey that lets you live out your wizarding dreams in the most extraordinary way.
