4. Try the famous Butter Beer!

Actually, it’s too sweet that I don’t taste the beer. It’s more like a butterscotch-flavoured drink, TBH.

5. Buy an interactive wand & be a wizard for a day!

Go to Ollivander’s & choose your wand. There are 2 kinds:

  • Interactive – will cost more $$, but if you’re a fan or looking for a nice souvenir, then it’s worth the price.
  • Original

ADDITIONAL TIPS:

Explore the City Walk

  • This is where the shuttle service will drop you off and it’s a strip of restaurants, shops & coffee places where you can sit, eat & enjoy people-watching.

Go early, Stay Late

  • Make the most out of your visit and spend the day at the theme park/s.

Book your tickets via KLOOK

  • It’s my first time to try using KLOOK and it’s super easy. Plus! the USS tickets on KLOOK are cheaper!

OVERALL

Whether you’re a Potterhead or not, I’m sure you’ll have a great time visiting Universal Studios Orlando. We decided not to explore the 2 parks anymore because of the cold weather and I don’t want to swim/get wet. 😀
