I'm planning a trip to The Wizarding World of Harry Potter in January of 2017 but I'm afraid the park might be closed down by then.
Sounds silly but do you guys think that Wizarding World will still be there next year? Or will they shut it down and put something else there?
Rides at Universal Parks typically only close when their related film franchise has become inactive for several years, and Harry Potter still has at least one more movie coming out. Chances of it still being there one year from now: 100%.
Also, if you are going to Universal Orlando, they have two parks next to each other, and both parks have separate but different Harry Potter lands (connected by a Hogwarts Express train ride). You'll need to buy tickets to both parks to see all of the Harry Potter stuff, so you might as well see some of the other things to get your money's worth.
