Kids grow up.  So do vacations.

There comes a point where kids are ready for something cooler, edgier, and wilder.  They’re ready to move onto a bolder kind of vacation excitement.  

When kids grow up, it’s time to plan a trip to a place where anything is possible, from soaring over Hogwarts castle, to plummeting down the side of a volcano, to staring into the eyes of a snarling raptor.

Universal Orlando vacations are a “different kind of magic”.  

Universal Orlando includes two theme parks (Universal Studios & Islands of Adventure), a water park (Volcano bay), a nighttime entertainment complex and 8 on-site hotels!

A fan-favorite is the Wizarding World of Harry Potter, located in both theme parks!  You can stroll through Hogsmeade village and explore the classrooms and corridors of Hogwarts castle, or you can take flight and swoop past Hagrid’s hut.

To fully experience the Wizarding World of Harry Potter, you need park-to-park tickets (Universal’s version of park hopping).  With a Park-to-Park admission ticket, you can board and ride the Hogwarts Express from either King’s Cross Station in London at Universal Studios Florida and travel to Hogsmeade Station in Universal’s Islands of Adventure, or ride the other way around for a different experience. Onboard, you’ll see characters and creatures featured in the films.  It was one of my favorite things to do right after I enjoyed a Butterbeer.
