Start with getting a photo right in front of the Universal Studios Orlando globe before you head into the park. You’ll have to be patient and wait for the globe to turn!

Let’s take a ride on the Hogwarts Express from the King’s Cross Station in London and travel to the Hogsmeade Station in Universal’s Islands of Adventure!

Location: King’s Cross Station


Hogsmeade Universal Orlando


Hogsmeade gives me all the cozy vibes – even when I visit in the summer when it’s 100 degrees in Orlando and especially when it’s chilly in December & January. The buildings are always covered with snow and in the winter, Hogsmeade is decorated with all the Christmas decorations.


Hogwarts Castle

Hogwarts Castle

You can’t leave Universal Orlando without a picture in front of the Hogwarts Castle.

Photo tip: instead of taking a picture right in front of the castle with a million people in your photo, go left to the bridge and you’ll also get the beautiful greenery.

Three Broomsticks

Even the Three Broomsticks is just as Instagrammable – make sure you grab a cup of butterbeer!
