1. Try the rides!
The Wizarding World of Harry Potter is probably the highlight of the Universal Studios Park, but don’t forget to explore the rides, shows and shops:
- Harry Potter Escape from Gringotts
- Hogwarts Express
- a separate ticket is needed to access this
- Men in Black Vs. Aliens
- E.T. Adventure
- Race Through New York with Jimmy Fallon

2. Visit the studios!
- Wizarding World of Harry Potter/Diagon Alley
- Springfield Simpsons
3. Watch and be entertained with the scheduled shows all-day!
- Fear Factor Live Show
- Blues Brothers
4. Try the famous Butter Beer!
Actually, it’s too sweet that I don’t taste the beer. It’s more like a butterscotch-flavoured drink, TBH.
5. Buy an interactive wand & be a wizard for a day!
Go to Ollivander’s & choose your wand. There are 2 kinds:
- Interactive – will cost more $$, but if you’re a fan or looking for a nice souvenir, then it’s worth the price.
- Original – plain and no special effects
Prof. Dumbledore’s Wand
Inside the box, you will find a map that will guide & point you to the places where you can use the wand.
6. Visit the School of Formal Wear.
Try on a uniform from your favourite house and face the talking mirror 😀
Explore the City Walk
- This is where the shuttle service will drop you off and it’s a strip of restaurants, shops & coffee places where you can sit, eat & enjoy people-watching.
Go early, Stay Late
- Make the most out of your visit and spend the day at the theme park/s.
Book your tickets via KLOOK
- It’s my first time to try using KLOOK and it’s super easy. Plus! the USS tickets on KLOOK are cheaper!
Whether you’re a Potterhead or not, I’m sure you’ll have a great time visiting Universal Studios Orlando. We decided not to explore the 2 parks anymore because of the cold weather and I don’t want to swim/get wet. 😀
