Early Park Admission And Express Pass
An advantage for staying on property at Universal Orlando Resort is the ability to enter the parks and arrive at Universal Citywalk before non-resort staying guests.
Also, depending on which accommodation you book, you may also be able to receive free unlimited expresses passes per person and valid for each day of your stay.
With a focus on all things Harry Potter I highly recommended using that early park admission advantage to head to Ollivanders Wand Shop in Diagon Ally and secure a reservation for your children to experience the wand ceremony. Its incredible and will be THE most magical moment of your stay!
You are able to purchase the interactive wands from Ollivanders which allow you to partake in the spells around both Diagon Ally and Hogsmeade.
If you opt to purchase the interactive wands they are lifetime guaranteed so if a child breaks it or it stops working for spells simply ask for a repair at any Ollivanders location.
Review Of The Wizarding World Of Harry Potter Vacation Package At Universal Orlando
When booking our Universal trip, I decided to add the Wizarding World of Harry Potter Vacation Package onto our travel plans.
I did NOT choose to stay for the full five nights and the team member I spoke with was able to adjust the package for a two night stay. In doing so, we did give up one of the free breakfast meal vouchers in the package .
I felt the Harry Potter Package was a good value for the type of vacation I was wanting to experience. When I broke down the cost per person the addition of the vacation packages made sense!
My daughters LOVE Harry Potter and I was wanting this trip to be very special for them.
They LOVE the themed keepsake box and the photo session was a highlight of our trip. We have a Nixplay digital photo frame and plan on putting in our oldest daughters room when she converts it to a Harry Potter theme to showcase the photos from our trip.
I am thankful that Universal is very flexible regarding the Harry Potter exclusive vacation package and I do highly recommend calling Universal Orlando directly and speaking with a team member to help figure out the best pricing, accommodations, tickets, and packages for your unique travel needs.

Shutterbuttons Photography Studio Session
Part of the package includes a reservation at the Shutterbutton Photography Studio located in Diagon Ally in Universal Studios Florida.
This session was SO fun for my Harry Potter loving daughters. We were able to act out scenes from the movies in front of a green screen so watching the final product was a fun surprise! The package includes a DVD of the live-action shots as well as 1 print out photo of your choosing and the digital download of that photo. Additional photos may be purchased for $25 each.
The experience is super, super fun and engaging on its own but getting to watch the DVD at home makes it even more special!
The session time can be arranged when making your vacation reservation. Not able to make it at your time? You can ask at the desk at the Shutterbutton location and they can usually work you in at another time that works better for your schedule.

Getting To Universal Orlando From Walt Disney World
If you plan to book a Universal vacation package , your travel agent can add transfers from any Walt Disney World resort to any Universal resort and between any Universal resort and the Orlando International Airport.
If youre not booking a vacation package and only want to visit Universal for one day, the cheapest way is usually to rent a car. Often you can get a one-day rental for as little as $30 plus tax, which is usually cheaper than the other options and gives you tons more flexibility. You will have to pay the current parking charge when you get to Universal, but even with that figured in this is usually the best value . Driving to Universal is very easy take I-4 East and three or four exits away there will be signs telling you to exit for Universal. Follow the signs and they will lead you directly to the parking garage. Your hotel can give you specific instructions for how to get to I-4, or there are road signs on all the major Walt Disney World routes that will direct you.
Lyft is a viable in Orlando now, and it works fine. Cost will be around $16-$35 each way depending on where in Walt Disney World youre coming from and which Lyft variant you select. For more information and tips, see our complete guide to using ride services in Orlando.
