    It's no extra money it's part of the ticket price already and yes, it is worth it (imho) it's very clever and the themeing is great

    I definitely want to see the Harry world. If I had been younger when the books had first come out, I would have been a Harry Potter freak! But since I was an adult I have kept the freak part down to a minimum. :lol:

    If you go you need to understand that the place is small!! It can be a bit crowded in busy times which makes the wait time long. Go first thing in the morning or late in the afternoon if you are going at peak crowd times. No matter when you go though it is quite busy so be ready to wait a bit. (I work at both Disney and Universal)

    Im not a HP fan but did enjoy the experience. We booked a night at the RPR and were able to get in earlier. I thought that alone was worth the money, not to get caught up in the crowds that descend on the parks at normal opening time.

    Just to make sure you know, its at Islands of Adventure not Universal - just wanted to point it out so you dont go to Universal expecting to see it there!
    Its not that big really, its great to see (and slightly odd too with the snow when its so sunny and warm around you!)
    Im not a big HP fan so if i wasnt planning on going to IoA anyway then i doubt id make a special effort to go there

    I know there was another Harry Potter-related thread a while back and I posted a few pictures from our recent visit to that park.

    If you are interested, click this link: Universal Studios and Islands of Adventures. Then, click the right and left arrows to browse the rest of the images from the 2 Universal parks.

    The Hogwarts building really does tower over that area, just like Cinderella's Castle at WDW.

    It's not a seperate park, and it is not a big place.
    They dont have much room to expand Universal or IOA so they re-imagined area's they already had built.

    They could have done so much more. Maybe somehow they can expand later.
