The Harry Potter books are great read aloud books. That's how we got hooked 14 years ago.

We 'usually' do Disney. This will be my 7dd 1st trip to Universal (she'll be 8 when we go). I've been to IOA twice (pre Harry Potter) and Spiderman is my favorite ride, anywhere, and I'm not a Spiderman fan.

We started to watch some of the things so that she would enjoy it more. She now knows about Popeye, Jurrasic Park, ET, MIB, and she absolutely loves Harry Potter. She isn't very happy that we won't let her watch all of them. Still not sure if I'm ready to let her watch the Simpsons.

So all in all I'd say that even if yall don't know much about the characters it will still be enjoyable. But knowing the characters makes it more enjoyable...and maybe a bit more real. Either way, enjoy your trip!

I am not really a fan of Harry Potter. I've never read a book or seen any of the movies. My wife dragged me to one of them and I slept through it.

But I will say that Forbidden Journey is an amazing ride.

So you don't have to be familiar with the material, as long as you love rides.

Then a bunch of people started commenting on it
I wondered if people really lived there and got to watch them every night
