If you are planning a trip to Universal Studios in Florida, Harry Potter World needs to make it onto your list. Here are some tips to make sure your visit is amazing!

First, know there are two parts of Harry Potter World; Diagon Alley and Hogsmeade. They are in 2 different parts of the parks, but connected with the Hogwarts Express. 

Have A Plan, But Stay Flexible

Know what is out there to see at Universal, but also give yourself time to just ENJOY it! Take a slow pace to make sure you see everything!

Go During An Off Season

Not only does this make navigating around the park a breeze, it also shows wait times for rides, so you can choose if a ride is worth the wait or not!

Try Butterbeer In All Its Forms

You can get butterbeer in frozen, cold, fudge, and ice cream form. I highly recommend all of these! My personal favorite was the soft serve butterbeer ice cream.

Visit all the shops 

It might seem a little much, but they are all so unique and so fun to visit. There are shops to see in both Diagon Alley and Hogsmeade.
