See recent posts by Lissa Poirot

The Wizarding World of Harry Potter took Orlando by storm in 2010 when it opened at Universal Resort Orlando, and now it finally arrives on the West Coast at Universal Studios Hollywood.

Celebrating its grand opening today, the new themed world will give visitors a chance to explore Hogwarts Castle, shop in Hogsmeade, fly with Harry Potter in a game of Quiddich, find the right wand at Ollivanders, drink Butterbeer at Three Broomsticks, and find unique tricks at Zonko’s Joke Shop.

Universal Studios Hollywood has launched EZRez for online reservations and tickets. Purchasing online will guarantee your date and early park admission, as well as a savings versus same-day gate ticket purchases. Tickets are $95 Monday through Friday, and $105 on weekends through May. From June through mid-August, tickets will be $105 every day.
