  1. Guys, reality is on its way. Everyone needs to give a huge thanks and give due credit to the Universal Orlando team for such an outstanding job at bringing the Wizarding World of Harry Potter : Diagon Alley. They have worked tirelessly to bring such a huge addition in such a short amount of time. I know as everyone stands and anxiously awaits the time when the iron gates will open and allow the general public entrance into the enchating land of Diagon Alley, I challenge each of you to remember back just the short time ago when this was just JAWs and vacant land now in just a little more than a year you have before you another amazing journey into Harry's Wizarding World. This great addition will surely be no disappointment.

    The Universal Orlando team is one of the most creative and dynamic teams in the history of the Theme Park business. The devotion of each of the team members that have put in long hours, sweat and headaches to achieve is unaprallel to any other studio or park. All teams: Creative, Design, Communications, Training, Management, and Operations have done a fantastic job.

    With all of the recent additions to Universal Orlando and with many more to come in the near future, Universal Orlando is taking its place at the top of the list a MUST SEE ATTRACTIONS destination, rightfully and deservably so.

    Kudos Universal Orlando Team!!!


  2. Universal Orlando has gained its rightful place under the sunny skies of Orlando, Florida as one of the Top Attractions in one of the World’s most premier travel destinations. When Universal Orlando opened in 1990, I doubt the original team could ever have imagined what has become Universal Resort Orlando.

    When Universal Orlando opened in 1990, it was living in the shadow of Disney. In 1999, when Universal Islands of Adventure opened, Universal Orlando proclaimed that dreams didn’t only exist within the Walt Disney World Resort, but they existed everywhere and they began to dream on their own. Universal dared to venture out into the sunlight on its own.

    In 2010, with the introduction of the Wizarding World of Harry Potter, Universal Orlando raised the bar above and far higher than it had before. Since its 2010 expansion, Universal’s very talented team has brought more thrill and excitement for all ages to Orlando than it has seen since the opening of the Magic Kingdom in 1971. Universal Orlando has not only stepped up to the plate, but have began playing in a different ballpark. Instead of following in the shadows, they have begun to set the standard. By listening to its guests, devising an amazing creative team, and developing a passion for their resort that is innovative and exciting, Universal Orlando has ascended to a level of superiority worthy of being top billed as Orlando’s Top Tourist Attraction.

    In four short years, Universal Orlando Resort has brought to you the following:

    The Wizarding World of Harry Potter : Hogsmeade
    Harry Potter and the Forbidden Journey
    Universal’s Cabana Bay Beach Resort
    The Wizarding World of Harry Potter : Diagon Alley
    Hogwarts Express
    Harry Potter and the Escape from Gringotts

    As well as these:
    HotDog Hall of Fame
    Cowfish (opening soon)

    And they continue to bring to you larger than life Halloween Horror Nights and Mardi Gras celebrations each year.

    The dreams continue and plans to expand the park even further continue………
