Happy 2nd Anniversary Wizarding World of Harry Potter

On June 18 2010, Universal Orlando welcomed what would become one of the most exciting and sought after attractions in all of Orlando – the Wizarding World of Harry Potter at Islands of Adventure. Bringing to life the wonder, excitement and adventures of the Harry Potter books and films, this spectacular world has captivated people from across the globe, ushering in thousands of fans on a daily basis to experience all things Harry Potter. And this Monday, as the attraction celebrates its 2-year anniversary, guests can expect even more Harry Potter magic at the park.

Opening day of the Wizarding World of Harry Potter drew a crowd so large the line not only wrapped through the park, it even extended outside of it, snaking through Universal’s CityWalk.  The wait to even get into the area was an astonishing 9 hours! And while it seems hard to believe anybody would wait that long to do anything, let alone get into a park, guests, or shall we say muggles patiently waited and they were glad they did.

And while guests haven’t had to wait 9 hours to get into the Wizarding World of Harry Potter since that day, the park is still jam-packed full of fans on any given day. And it’s all because of the incredible likeness the area has to the Harry Potter films. Guests can meander through the many shops of Hogsmeade including Ollivander’s Wand Shop where Harry’s wand chose him, Honeydukes where you can get a taste of the many sweet treats Harry and his friends enjoyed during their time at Hogwarts and even sip on the famous butterbeer at Hog’s Head pub at the back of Three Broomsticks. There are also thrilling roller coasters that depict the many challenges and trials Harry was put up against during his time at Hogwarts including Dragon Challenge, Harry Potter and the Forbidden Journey and Flight of the Hippogriff. Muggles can even tour through Hogwarts Castle and see the castle’s many rooms and areas including Dumbledore’s Office, the Defense Against the Dark Arts Classroom, The Portrait Gallery and more.

And as if all of that wasn’t enough to make the Wizarding World of Harry Potter one of the best attractions ever, Universal Orlando recently confirmed a Harry Potter expansion is in the works, though details have not yet been revealed.

Stay tuned for more details on the expansion. In the meantime make sure you celebrate the Wizarding World of Harry Potter’s 2-year anniversary on Monday with a cup of butterbeer, a ride on Harry Potter and the Forbidden Journey and a tour through Hogwarts Castle.  You can find discounted Islands of Adventure tickets right here on Orlando Fun Tickets.
