Awesome showing, for that Harry Potter fan! Catching the show at night looks to be a cool experience. I would recommend this for anyone that's a fan, especially if they're going to be at Universal Hollywood!

I have always wanted to go to the Wizarding World of Harry Potter. I have been a Harry Potter fan for a long time. If I were able to go, I would definitely go to this show.

My friends really wanted to go to Harry Potter world when we were in Florida a few weeks ago but we never made it. Looks like a lot of fun. Harry Potter is so popular now.

Wow! This looks amazing! They did a great job of recreating the Hogwarts castle. Although I'm not too familiar with the Harry Potter movies, this looks like something my kids would enjoy watching.
I haven't been to a theme park in years, but this looks seriously cool. I've always wanted to go to Universal Studios, but kind of killed my chances when I moved to Europe. We keep meaning to go to the Harry Potter Experience when we're in London but haven't gotten around to it.

My goodness, I'm looking at the photos and thinking that they're almost too cool to be real. It's simply incredible what they're able to do these days. We've been planning a trip to Universal Studios with my grandson, and I know the minute I show him your post, he'll be all over it! (ps: I think I'm just as excited as I know he will be!)

Love this - we are 2 hrs away and have not been to Universal Studios in so many years - Sounds like the ideal time to get back there - We would so enjoy this - and love John Williams work - I still have my piano books that have his name on as the composer of the lessons!

I love all the pictures! What a wonderful light show. This is something I definitely want to see in-person someday. The kids and I love Harry Potter so it would be an extra special treat.
