We had a Great time. Weather co-operated, warm & sunny every day. There were no long lines all 3 days we were in the two parks. (20 min, or less) So we saved money by not buying the express pass and were able to go on every ride we wanted.

Tip: Don't buy an express pass before you see how the waits are! Get the park to park ticket.

We went on my actual 25th birthday! I wore a shirt that said "I'm 25 witches!" and got a lot of compliments! I have never felt more welcomed and loved then when at this park - seriously! Everyone was so friendly and excited for my birthday! Universal with the park hopper passes is worth every penny!

"Worth Every Penny"
October, 2018
I know the Express Pass seems expensive but I can't stress enough how worth the money it really is. We didn't wait in line all day for more than 15 minutes. We were able to catch everything in the park in that one day due to the short lines with the express pass. I enjoyed it so much more than the Disney parks and if I had known in advance I would have spent another day at the Islands of Adventure. I hope this helps you with your decisions.

Going to Hogwarts was great. We loved everything about it. Make sure you take in all the shows in each park. Plus, when you are meeting with characters, take a video with pictures if you can. Most iPhones have this option. Also, don’t miss an in counter with the Raptors. It is so fun and the guides make it so funny.

As Orlando residents, my family has visited Universal Studios many times, often with family from Up North in the Winter. This time on 12/14/18 we decided to enjoy Christmas decorations at Universal’s Islands of Adventure with our visiting relatives. We started with Grinchmas, a wonderful musical show that put us in the Christmas mood. The singing, dancing, and Mannheim Steamroller music were great! There is nothing that beats talented live actors! We explored Hogwarts and the Harry Potter village decked out beautifully for Christmas. Lights on the castle at night are amazing. We had lunch at Mythos, and it was easy to see why it has been named the #1 theme park restaurant in the WORLD for six years in a row. Both the food and service were outstanding. Since this was a pre-Christmas rainy day, we were able to get into most attractions without a long wait, averaging 10 minutes for things like Kong. That was amazing. The highlight of the day for us was an afternoon visit to Poseidon‘s Fury, which is one of the few original show attractions left that features a live actor. On our visit, Taylor, the archeologist “volunteer“ character, was portrayed by a funny and talented young woman. Taylor easily got her audience involved emotionally with the story of Poseidon’s trident and our “escape” from the temple. We have seen Taylor portrayed by young men before, but this female Taylor was outstanding. At the end of the adventure, audience members high-fived, hugged, and asked for photos with her. That experience at Poseidon made us realize how many attractions that featured live actors are now gone. We miss that personal involvement that live actors can create with an audience. We were disappointed and surprised that the park closed at 7:00 p.m. on a Saturday, but were told extended hours started next week for holidays... Our guests will be gone. We missed the Mannheim Steamroller concert, too, which runs Only on Saturday and Sunday Nights at Studios for December. But we enjoyed the adventures we had!

Brilliant, Brilliant, Brilliant what more is there to say, however I feel you cant do it justice by trying to do it in one day, get an open 5 day pass "expensive" but well worth going every other day as you will need a days rest between visits or am Igetting old? The Hulk ride will make many other rides boring.
