It must be magic because The Wizarding World of Harry Potter at Universal Orlando Resort is reopening this month. On June 5, this enchanting theme park will open to visitors. Whether you're magical or a muggle, you'll soon discover this charming destination all over again.
Universal posted an update on May 22 stating that three of its popular parks would be reopening on June 5, including Universal Studios Florida, Islands of Adventure, and Volcano Bay.
This means you'll be able to immerse yourself into a spellbinding wonderland with Harry Potter and friends since the Wizarding World is part of Universal Studios. Though, the experience may be slightly different from the last time individuals were able to venture to Hogsmeade.
As a part of their reopening, guests will be required to wear face coverings while visiting. Also, social distancing and hand washing will be encouraged, and temperatures will be checked when you arrive at the park. The rules are in accordance with Gov. Ron DeSantis' Phase 2 plan.*
The number of people in the park at one time will also be limited. Guests can use the "Virtual Line" experience for some attractions to help avoid standing in crowded lines while they wait.
Hand sanitizer will be required at some places throughout the park, and parking will be configured to curtail large gatherings of people.
For Florida and non-Florida residents, tickets currently start at $119 for a one-day pass to Universal Studios. For a one-day, two-park pass, including Universal Studios and Islands of Adventure, you're looking at $174.
The Wizarding World awaits. Start scheduling your summer vacay, and feel free to daydream about this charming park. Fans will once again be in their happy place.
