    Got this vacation package for December. Taking my grand daughter, we are both so excited! Our first time at Universal, it all looks so awesome, can’t wait to see it all!

    This sounds amazing. Is this package available to passholders?

  3. Michelle

    This is pretty lackluster. Please bring back the Magical World of Harry Potter event you used to have last weekend of January, each year.

    My wife and I just returned home from a 7-day honeymoon! We enjoyed our Wizarding World adventures; our absolute favorite being Hagrid’s Motorbike Adventure, which we got to ride, TWICE! All of the witches and wizards were extremely friendly and ensured our stay was nothing less than magical! This package is definitely worth it!
