Seth Kubersky Dishes on Wizarding World of Harry Potter

Our man in Orlando, Seth Kubersky, co-author of Universal Orlando 2013: The Ultimate Guide to the Ultimate Theme Park Adventure, discussed all things Harry Potter with Darren of  the Unofficial Universal Orlando Podcast.

The interview was part of the podcast’s “Walk the Walk” series on Island of Adventure.

Seth presented his take on the various rides, shops and site attractions. He said he was disappointed that the Dragon Challenge was no longer dueling, but that it was “still worth a shot.” Olivander’s Wand Shop is the most popular “ride,” he said, with seeing a wand choosing your kid as the highlight. Of course, you have to buy one, he added.

He described Harry Potter and the Forbidden Journey as “the best Dark Ride … a wonder of technology and art.” He went on to describe the background of WWHP and its opening in June 2010, the themed shops, restaurants (insight: the food at Jurassic Park is about the same as the Three Broomsticks).

A personal favorite: the animated scenes in the windows.
