Resort Offers Spellbinding 'Wizarding Weekends' Package for Harry Potter Fans

By: Dalia Colon


I know it’s hard to think about summer when you’re knee-deep in the polar vortex. But I promise you, summer vacation is on its way. No more pencils, no more books.

Unless those books are by JK Rowling.

This summer, Universal Orlando will complete its latest attraction, Wizarding World of Harry Potter: Diagon Alley. To celebrate, Orlando World Center Marriott invites families to experience the “Wizarding Weekends” package. Starting at $1,299 for a family of four, the offer includes:

  • Two nights’ accommodations.

  • Two days of admission to Universal Studios and its companion park full of thrill rides,  Islands of Adventure.

  • “Hogwarts Express” transportation to and from the parks.

  • Complimentary Harry Potter movies on demand.

  • $200 “magical feast” food and beverage credit at the resort.

  • Turndown service featuring English tea and jellybeans.

This should give the kids something to write about next fall on their “How I Spent My Summer Vacation” essays, you think?

The Wizarding Weekends offer is available June 1 to Sept. 30, 2014.  For reservations call 800-380-7931 or visit Use promo code FOO.
