Muggles take Universal

Orlando, OK, United States
5 Kudos
My girls and I are huge Harry Potter fans. We've been wanting to visit the worlds of Harry Potter at Universal Studios in Orlando for a while. This year we just decided to make it happen and booked a last minute, four day trip to Florida. Universal's addition of the HP attractions did not disappoint. We went in March before Spring Break season was in full swing and found the parks to be highly manageable without having to wait too long at any ride. We booked a partner deal with the Drury Inn and Suites in Orlando and it was absolutely the way to go. When we didn't want to wait for the shuttle, we just called for Uber and would be at the park in minutes.

Universal Studios Plaza
What a great time if you are a Harry Potter fan! Yes, it's pricey, so if you don't love theme parks I would skip it. A lot of the park seemed outdated, but the Minions ride, the new Jimmy Fallon experience, and all of Harry Potter world was awesome.


Drury Inn & Suites Orlando
Fabulous experience. We encountered an extreme delay of our flight and didn't arrive at the hotel until 5:30 in the morning. We were supposed to be there at 10:30 the night before. Our room was ready as soon as we walked in and the staff couldn't have been more friendly. Complimentary breakfast and happy hour were nice too.


Anthony's Coal Fired Pizza
Tiny restaurant, but amazing pizza! My daughter ordered meatballs and they were almost the size of a baseball. Absolutely delicious.
Bubba Gump Shrimp Co.
I'm not big on chains, but this was good. Food was fresh and our waiter was great. I would be inclined to eat here again.
