While dad took the kids to the water rides at Universal Studios, mom had a private lunch.Service was very good but the food was average. However, I wonder whether the food was better than anything I would have gotten at a kiosk. Nevertheless, mom enjoyed private time, with a glass of wine!
Honestly how else can you really experience Harry Potter? Super cool and fun! Be sure to always get park to park passes and you can take the train back and forth between hogsmeade and diagon alley!

If you have a open mind, and haven't been brainwashed by too many Small World rides, this is the park for you. I've been to WDW (18) trips since it opened, but now I go to Universal Orlando. IMHO, the parks are for pre-teens and up, the resorts are gorgeous and affordable, and the Preferred Annual Pass is the best deal there is for a theme park anywhere. Definitely my #1 reason to go to Florida.

This park is full of thrilling rides. Words cannot describe how exciting Hulk, Dueling Dragons, Spider Man, etc. are. Staying at an on-site hotel gives you front of the line on every ride. City Walk and Universal Studios are very close to walk over to. The Spider Man character is really great to kids and plays the part perfectly.

I ONLY HAVE 2 WORDS TO SAY ABOUT THIS PARK. THE HULK!!! THIS RIDE IS THE BEST ROLLER COASTER THAT I HAVE EVER BEEN ON. PREPARE FOR AN UNEXPECTED, BUT NICE SURPRISE ONCE RIDE STARTS. THE DAY WE WENT IT WAS VERY HOT OUTSIDE SO I WAS A LITTLE FRUSTRATED WITH LINES, BUT THATS SOMETHING YOU HAVE TO EXPECT. OTHER THAN THAT, THIS PARK IS GREAT!! THE DUELING DRAGONS ARE COOL TOO. I SUGGEST GETTING ON THE ICE DRAGON, I THINK IT GOES FASTER THAN FIRE DRAGON.

The Islands of Adventure designers certainly got one thing right--the rides. Too bad they didn't realize that theme parks are more than just rides. We bought the 5 days for the price of 2 for our family of 5. Only 2 of us (my older son and I) even came back for the 2nd day. Wasted $120. It was a bargain though since we all had such a great time at Walt Disney World.
(OK, the Jurassic Park area was great but that was really it).

This is the best park in Orlando..HANDS DOWN!! Great rides, fun atmosphere. This park broke the mold of Orlando's theme park industry. The park is family oriented, but the thrill rides here are actually THRILL RIDES! THE BEST rides are here. I just hope they keep expanding on it and add more roller coasters. I think its a shame that the ""roller coaster capital"" is in Ohio and not in Orlando, the ""theme park capital of the world"", where I personally think it should belong, especially where the ""World's Best"" rollercoaster is located. When you have a good thing going, try to keep it up and surpass ALL of the competition.

Islands of Adventure has something for EVERY age group.
The Dr Suess area is particularly great for kids. There's rollercoasters, street performances, great shows, and many rides.
The staff at Islands of Adventure are very knowledgeable about the park & rides & are very friendly & helpful. The park is clean. The shopping is plentiful and there's many places to dine.
The only thing that I do not like is that EVERY ride exits through a 'theme' store & this can be particularly frustrating when enjoying the park with kids - they want EVERYTHING !!! I would have preferred to have the option of entering the sores of my choice !
There are also clean bathroom facilities, and the option of renting strollers & motorchairs.

They had my family and I as an annual pass holders but ignored us when this facility opened. Poor public relations. Lost all interest in Universal when I could have been renewing annuals since 1999. Disney did just the opposite. They added the Animal Kingdom to annuals at no additional cost when it first opened.
