Universal is so awesome. Have fun. We enjoyed our late breakfast at Three Broomsticks. Leaky Cauldron was fine, food not spectacular, but just fun to go. Diagon Alley is the best. UA did an incredible job. You'll get a true sense of immersion. make sure to take a turn down Knockburn Alley. We didn't opt for the interactive wand, but will on the next next trip.
And there's none of that Disney 'you MAY get wet on this ride' business at Ripsaw Falls and Bluto's Bilge Barges.....it is 'you WILL get SOAKED.'
Have fun!!!

Universal is awesome. But be careful. That stuff they pass off as butterbeer is a fraud.

Okay, I get why everyone is saying the system is confusing. We are going just for a day, so I wanted to get reservations at Toothsome. Have no clue how to do that. Don't see anything on their website about making reservations. Do they take them?

If you're kids are Potterheads, and haven't been to Diagon Alley yet, tell them to wait to let you in first. That way you can get pictures of their initial reactions when they see it for the first time.
