We were up at 5:45am this morning so we could be on the first water taxi to the Wizarding World of Harry Potter at Islands of Adventure. We’re staying at Portofino Bay Resort at Universal Orlando. When you stay at a Universal hotel, you get early admission to the parks and complimentary water taxis to the parks. My favorite benefit of staying at a Universal hotel is the Universal Express pass, which allows you to skip the regular lines.
Islands of Adventure theme park includes Marvel Super Hero Island, Jurassic Park, and Dr. Seuss. The Spiderman 3-D ride, Hulk roller coaster, Cat in the Hat,and now Harry Potter and The Forbidden Journey are amazing!
