Wizarding World of Harry Potter

As a Harry Potter fan, visiting the Wizarding World of Harry Potter in Universal Studios had always been on my bucket list every since it was opened. When I visited, I wasn’t going to pass up the chance to dress in my Hogwarts robes and not document the details while I was there.

That being said, here are the pictures and videos. There are no documentation of rides for obvious reasons.

Madame Puddifoot’s could potentially be a cafe that serves coffee, tea, and sandwiches if they decide to implement it.

For the recreation of the wizarding world based on JK Rowling’s vision, Universal Studios impressed me. Everything was so detailed in execution in the way technology was utilized to create magical experiences for visitors such as the ability to perform spells with new wands in designated locations with sensors detecting arm movements. Like one quote stated, advanced technology is indistinguishable from magic. Furthermore, authenticity is evident. From the small size shops matching JK’s vision to lack of commercial products such as soft drinks at restaurants, it really is a separate world of its own once you pass the entrance.
