This is fun! This is easily the best and most magical part of the Universal Studios theme parks. I visited the Florida theme park in 2010 and the Universal City theme park during 2016-2017. The WWOHP areas are exceptional, H.P. fans love them and visit often, muggles wishing to have fun will also have an incredible time. They are small sections, Universal Park's Wizarding World is very small, but one can spend a lot of time walking, browsing, riding the two attractions, buying, eating, watching the Toad Choir and Triwizard Spirit Rally. Visiting in the rain or drizzles makes a big difference, there are no crowds, and the world comes to life in a more true to life like setting.
Take your time here, look at all of the nooks and crannies, it's worth it. The Ollivanders experience is truly delightful, afterward you might want to purchase an interactive wand to use at each spell casting location. These spots are marked by medallions lodged into the cement indicating where to stand to cast the spell.
There is an elevator one may use to get to the top of Harry Potter and The Forbidden Journey, if the stairs are too much for your body. If visiting the park overall is hard on your body visit Guest Relations upon entering the park and they will help you with what you need.
I have a few physical difficulties now, and have to take the day nice and slow. WWOHP is the best part of the park, followed by a nice walk through England and France and leave.
PLEASE NOTE: Universal Studios is not great for the little ones. The rides all have a scary tone and the children aren't held with grace.
