Comments for Universal Orlando’s Wizarding World of Harry Potter Shines With Extra Magic at Night


  1. Wild Ol' Dan

    Howdy Ricky,

    Well, once again, Inside the Magic has demonstrated excellence in capturing
    the real magic of this incredible place. Sadly many theme park goers do not take the time to actually savor the magic…instead opting for rushing through the park as if it were a race. And, as a result the miss out on so much…

    Both you and your wife through your excellent podcasts have really captured
    the magic of the Wizarding World of Harry Potter far better than any other site that I have ran across…including Universal’s “Official” site.

    It sure would be great to hear you and your wife talk a little about some
    financial strategies for visiting. The wisdom for instance of looking strongly at an Annual Passport so that the park can be savored at a much slower pace. The savings in parking alone ($98 for seven days, $196 for
    14 days) when factored in…might just make the Annual Passport a smart choice
    compared to single day or even multi-day passes. Your advice about AAA member
    discounts could save folks a very large amount of money on stuff from the park. Please give some thought on a possible podcast discussion on this subject.

    Thank you for capturing and helping us savor the magic.

    Adios for now. Talk to ya on down the trail.

    Wild Ol’ Dan

    Hi Ricky,
    Thank you for keeping the magic alive in each and every article you write! I did not know your website before searching for news on the WWHP some 3 weeks ago. And from then on it has been amazing!
    We’d already booked a night at the Royal Pacific for October just to take advantage of their perks since we’re staying off-site for the rest of our trip. We’ll probably check-in at 5 or 6 pm and we are planning to take a look at WWHP at night for a couple of hours and then come back next morning with the early entry perk. I was wondering though, how to do the check-out since the check-out time is 11 am and at that time we’ll probably be still having fun inside WWHP? And do you think leaving the hotel at 7:30 will be OK or do they open earlier than 8am?
    Thanks once more!

      You might have a chance to enter even earlier than 8 a.m., but no guarantees. If your goal is to get the most of out of the early entry, make sure you’re at the park’s entrance before 8 a.m.

      If you’re checking out that day, talk to the front desk about leaving your bags with them while you’re in the park. You can’t let them sit in your room all day.

    The WWoHP was AMAZING!!!!!! When you get a chance check out the video i made from our visit…. Universal held a special event from 10pm until 2am and we had Hogwarts all to ourselves.. The event was called “A night of 1000 Wizards” and I will never ever ever forget my visit there.. Can’t wait to go back.. THE HARRY POTTER FANDOM IS FULL OF AWESOME! <3
    here is the link for my video.. I hope you like it.. 🙂

      Looks like you had a blast! Great video, thanks for sharing it.

      I was also at the Night of a Thousand Wizards and have posted an article with photos from that night:

  5. Some articles claim that you happen to be “only” supposed to pay back about $50 for
    a $500 loan, but look at the facts: this $50 is for any bi weekly period bluehost
    coupon 2014 these are reserved for all those that are and are already current using lender plus have excellent credit histories.
