This Saturday, August 31st is Harry Potter’s Birthday. The chosen one was born July 31, 1980. Which would make him 42 today. Wow. If you’re a Harry Potter fan then this is the day to celebrate. And one of the coolest things I’ve done related to Harry Potter is visit The Wizarding World at Universal Studios. Even a casual fan will be amazed by the detail in this incredibly immersive theme park land. Every detail is purposely thought out. From the shops you’ve read about, to wanted posters for Sirius Black, to how you enter Diagon Alley. There are several must-do’s for when you visit the Wizarding World if you want the full experience.
The Wizarding World is broken up into two sections one in Universal Studios Florida- Diagon Alley and one in Islands of Adventure-Hogsmede Village and Hogwarts. And both bring the books and movies to life in a way that will mesmerize you. I dare you to not tear up as you walk into Diagon Alley and seeing Hogwarts for the first time will take your breath away. This adventure is a must for anyone who grew up with Harry Potter. This brings me to the 8 must-do’s for when you take your Wizarding World visit. There are many more things to do but don’t skip any on this list!
