I visited the Wizarding World of Harry Potter back in 2014 and it was so much fun! I LOVE Harry Potter, it was definitely a HUGE part of my childhood! I actually have a trip to London planned this April and I’ll be visiting the Warner Bros. Studio Tour London and seeing all the Harry Potter sets and props <3
Wasn’t it amazing? I went last year for my birthday and I had a great time. Aww how lucky! I would dieeee if I saw the Harry Potter sets and props! Take me with you! 😀
My daughter and I incorporated a Harry Potter Theme into our last holiday to the UK. We tried to visit as many movie sites as possible and even got to ride the Jacobite Train over the viaduct. You might like to read the Harry Potter posts on my blog if you are planning a similar journey.
Thats really cool Lee-Anne! Wish I could see the movie sites too. I will definitely check out your post. Thanks! 🙂
I know people are obsessed with HP, but I just never got into it. Maybe when my daughter is a little older!
Aw that’s okay Esther. It’s not for everyone. 🙂 But yea, I’m sure your daughter would love to visit the park.
We did this in Universal in Summer 2015 and I now there is one in the UK where we will be heading to in March. Can’t wait to pay it a visit if I can.
Omg Im jealous of everyone visiting the WB Studios in London. Wish I could go too! 🙁
I never got into Harry Potter, but this is a cool video! I know some people who are in LOVE with Harry Potter and the whole series, so I’ll share this with them!
No worries Jenn and thank you for liking the video and sharing it to your friends. 🙂
What a great video! My grandkids love Harry Potter. I read all the books, too and saw most of the movies.
Thanks Alli! That’s awesome that you read the books! I know some people just saw the movies but never really read the books.
How fun! My 3 boys love Harry Potter as well!
That’s awesome Natalie! 🙂
Great looking photos. I have never seen this display
Thanks Carol! 🙂
Great video! Wish I was there.
Thanks Sarah! 🙂
My family loves Harry Potter. I have friends that actually work there. Pretty cool!
That’s awesome that your friends get to play wizards! 😀
Eeeek! I work at Universal and LOVE Diagon Alley! Can’t wait to read your posts!
OMG what a cool job Beth! I’m glad they’re opening one in LA but sad because its only Hogsmeade.
I’ll post a new one soon! 🙂
Awesome Video! We went last year and have been trying to devise a way to go back this year. I was so sad when I heard the news of Alan Rickman earlier this week.
Thanks Nicole! They have one opening in LA, idk if that’s closer to you.
Me too! So heartbreaking. 🙁
Almost went through HP while at Universal, although I have never seen a move or read a book. Love your blog.
Thank you Rosemary! That’s very sweet of you. 🙂
Omg Janna, I adore Harry Potter and now cannot wait to visit the wizarding world of HP! Awesome (dare I say magical?) video!
Haha love that! Thanks Tamar! I hope to visit the one in LA soon! 🙂
This looks like such an amazing experience! I so want to go and experience this for myself.
It really was Sarh. Hope you get to visit and experience it too!
I would love to go to the Wizarding World of Harry Potter at Universal. Your video is beautiful!!

I am soooo jealous!! I wish I could go to Harry Potter land sooooo bad!!! It is totally on mu bucket list!!
Aww dont be! They have one in the west coast now. Idk if that’s much closer to you. 🙂
How fab! Is this the one in Florida? I’m visiting the one in Japan at Easter and I am SO SO SO excited!

I would LOVE to go here. Super huge HP fan.
Aww yay highfive! 😀
Love this Janna! I never made it to the HP set in London but plan to when i go back for a holiday. This park looks awesome though! So cool!
I really want to go to that one. Hopefully, someday I get to visit the studios too. Take me when you go! :p
This is awesome! I love how excited you look 🙂
I didn’t realise it was so big – where is it?
Perfect closing shot btw!
Haha I had that ridiculous smile on my face the whole trip. Its in Florida! But they have opening in LA soon. Thanks Laura!
This is so great! I have always wanted to go there, but never had the time while in Florida! Glad I got to experience it through your video 🙂
Glad to know that Jordan. Hopefully, you get to experience the magic too! 😀
Thanks a lot for sharing this video! Definitely visiting the Wizarding World is something Im looking forward to do and this video captures a lot of the amazing experience this must be.
Not a problem at all. Glad you liked it Brenda! 🙂
It looks like you had such an awesome time. Im jealous! I would sooo love to visit there one day. It looks beyond cool. I would go full nerd lol
I was full on nerd it’s embarassing haha. But it’s because I love HP so much.
Thanks Hannah! 🙂
This looks pretty neat! Some of my friends are obsessed with Harry Potter and would absolutely love to do this. Great video! 🙂
Thank you Jess! It’s not just for HP lovers but for any amusement park goers as well. 🙂
I really wanna go see this. I’ve been to Islands of Adventure when it first opened and 2 times after that, but not since before 2006 when I had back surgery 🙁 but I’m a big fan of Harry Potter. Thanks for sharing.
Aw well, I do hope you get to visit whenever you’re feeling better. Not a problem at all! Glad you liked it. 🙂
Yes RIP Alan Rickman aka Snape 🙁 So sad.
Loved the video though, everything looks so real!! Harry Potter was my childhood! This place is definitely on my bucket list! I really need to go sometime soon!! ???
It really felt like I was in a movie set. You have to go Cynthia! 🙂
I love this! HP world is on my to do list for next time I am home and the has just bumped it up, I can’t wait!
You’ll love it Lottie! 😀
Your video really showed me the world of Harry Potter! I love it and have always been a big fan! I am also saddened by the passing of Professor Snape.
Thanks Lashawn! Glad you liked it! 🙂
An amazing place for HP fans. I love the immersive destinations that let you enter another world.
A great escape from reality! 🙂
I never read the first book and didn’t want to read the others or see the movies until I did. Still haven’t. I know a lot of folks that are in love with all things HP, but even though I don’t it still seems like a really cool destination.
That’s okay Sophie, its not for everyone! Glad you think it’s still cool. 😀
My 10 year old just started reading the books so my husband and I can’t wait to take a trip to Universal Next Year. It has to be such a good time for Potter fans and so sad that Snape has passed.
I’m glad your 10 yr old is reading the books! He/she will love it! They have another Harry Potter opening in Hollywood soon. Maybe that one is closer to where you live.
Wow, I’m so jealous! I’ve been really curious about this place, so it’s fun to see a video perspective of it. I love the last clip! Haha!
Thanks Tracie! 🙂 It’s such a fun place for kids and adults to enjoy. You should def check it out!
Love the video! Do you have an itinerary/guide for the Wizarding World of HP? Would like to visit this myself! Thanks for sharing, Janna!
Thanks Trisha. Glad you love it! I’m actually gonna post one soon. Just got busy coz I traveled to the Philippines this month. Hope you can check it out. I’ll publish it soon. And no problem at all!
I’ve read all the books and my nephew has just finished them. It might be a great reason to head off for a visit. It looks really fun!
You should take your nephew and check it out Elizabeth! Its so awesome! 😀
I love me some harry potter land….love the ride and its also very well done how the land seems so big even tho its not but with the roof top and fireplace stacks…some cool eye trickery.. did you get a sneaky tour of the castle 😉
Glad you enjoyed it too Kimberly! 🙂 I didn’t get a tour of the castle! Is there one??
And I cried. Remembered how Professor Snape made this magical world truly memorable. Did he make any potion to bring his life back? 🙂 Janna, please bring me in that wizarding world made by the muggles! 🙂
YESSS! 🙁 It was really sad. I know right? Wish he made some magical potion that he can use in real life. 🙂
I got all excited as soon as the video started playing because of the soundtrack. Really cool video! Does look like Harry Potter haha
Aww glad you liked it! My husband picked out the song. 🙂
I jumped out of my sofa when the music started haha. Wasn’t expecting this. I love Harry Potter. The Wizarding World must be magical!
AWW haha! That’s so cute! Glad you liked it Marta! I love HP too!
Its a paradise for Harry Potter fans, love the start of the video… Am sure you had an experience of the lifetime.

OMG I just took the Harry Potter train at Universal Studios in Orlando. It was incredible. I really was lost in the fairytale! Looking forward to the post.
That was one of the best parts of visiting the Wizarding World! Looove the train! Gonna publish it soon. 🙂
Awesome video! It’s as if you’re right there!
Thanks Joe! 🙂
I haven’t gotten into Harry Potter yet, but I feel like visiting here would make me want to! I would totally get into all of the movies and books. Justin loves Harry Potter and we own all of the DVDs, so I think I should just watch them already! 🙂 Great video!
