Take the Red Line subway! Totally beats dealing with the 101 traffic and paying for parking.

No Floo powder? No problem. Go Metro! |

Universal got John Williams and the Los Angeles Philharmonic to perform an opening show a few days ago. The show was a great combination of fireworks, lighting, and digital/projection mapping. VERY impressive.

It's part of the Orlando park experience.

Wizarding World Hollywood is pretty dope. It definitely feels a lot smaller than in Orlando(and it doesn't have the fire-breathing dragon since it doesn't have Gringott's) but it's still very immersive and cool. In Orlando there's a lot of wasted space IMO for things like the muggle train station and buildings/fake shops where there's not much of anything to do/experience. Here every shop is actually a shop and every building has a purpose beyond added immersion. And they didn't have it at Orlando when I was there, but here you can buy specific wands that interact with the park. There are these pendants in the ground in front of some spots and if you wave one of the special wands around in those spots cool "magic" happens. All the kids were going nuts over those.
I had a really good time going in the late afternoon/evening. There were more adults than children as it got later so me and my adult friends didn't stand out(aside from being decked out in Slytherin and Ravenclaw duds).
