The Wizarding World of Harry Potter Theme Park
Step out of the Harry Potter books and beyond the Forbidden Forest with these top things to do if you are a Harry Potter fan at Universal Orlando!
Park to Park Ticket
You will need a park-to-park ticket since Hogsmeade is at Islands of Adventure and Diagon Alley is at Universal Studios & you can ride the Hogwarts Express between the two parks!
Meet the goblins of Gringotts! Look for Gringotts in Diagon Alley where you can exchange your Muggle money for Gringotts bank notes and use them throughout the parks.
Goblins at Gringotts
Ride the “Forbidden Journey,” located in Hogwarts, & the “Escape From Gringotts” in Diagon Alley which is a mix of an indoor roller coaster & a 3-D ride!
