Dates: April 2016 – present

The Wizarding World has proved to be a huge success at Universal Studios Hollywood. Representing a $500 million investment, this section of the park is immersive and full of magic for all of the wizards in your family. Arriving early (close to opening times) or late (within a few hours of park closing) is the best way to approach the attractions. The evening option also means you’ll experience the added dimension of darkness and the twinkling lights of Hogsmeade.
