2022 Wizarding World of Harry Potter Guide: Tickets, Rides, Tips and More!

Ready to take an adventurous guide to The Wizarding World of Harry Potter?

Wizards call it home. Muggles call it the Islands of Adventure. And us Harry Potter fans? We just think of it as our own personal heaven.

The Wizarding World of Harry Potter at Universal Orlando Resort is one of the most popular and iconic theme parks of all time. With the films grossing over one billion dollars, the scrawny, green-eyed Chosen One has got many supporters in the Muggle world.

And if you are one of them good guys… WELCOME TO THE TEAM!

Here at ThemeParkHipster, we are totally obsessed with the ragtag bunch of teenagers that vanquished the Dark Lord. Personally, I can recite the movies to you as they play– word-for-word (well, if I’ve had A LOT of coffee I can).

So, it is a small wonder that I know the Wizarding World like the back of my hand. Luckily for you, I’m ready to spill the beans (magic or otherwise)!
