A NEW ERA - Spring 2017 Perfect Wedding Magazine PWSpring2017 - Page 127

Far more technologically advanced than completing parks, Universal Orlando Resort is geared towards the older children…and even the older, older chil- dren. Owned by NBCUniversal, the park seems completely themed around the motion picture industry. Firstly, there is Universal Studios Florida, which has a real movie backlot feel. Here you will find many rides plus the main attraction behind a hidden passage - The Wizard- ing World of Harry Potter – Diagon Alley. Make sure to ride the ‘Escape from Gringotts’ multi-dimensional thrill ride. Absolutely mind-blowing! Then catch the Hogswarts Express at Lon- don’s King’s Cross Station. You never know what surprise you might see. This train takes you to Hogsmeade on Uni- versal’s Islands of Adventure for more Harry Potter fun, but there is way, way more here than just Harry Potter’s world. Three theme parks and growing! d Clockwise from top left: Entrance to Universal Studios Florida, Hollywood’s Sunset Blvd at Universal Studios Florida, Hogsmeade village on Universal’s Islands of Adventure, Hogswarts Express at London’s King’s Cross Station at Universal Studios Florida and Diagon Alley, Hogwarts Castle and School of Witchcraft and Wizardry for the ‘Harry Potter and the Forbidden Journey’ ride. perfect wedding magazine.com 125
