    What do you think is the best quality land in USF? Consider all factors, theming, immersion, rides, restaurants, shops, cohesiveness, details, overall look, etc. You know the drill haha.

    Also, how do you rank the lands in USF? Leave it below! Let's discuss!

    Diagon/London hands down...Best land in the USA even. Hogsmeade might be close or even, over at IOA, with Hagrids added . I'll have to experience Hagrids mix though, to rate it now....At WDW I'd rate Africa at AK as their best land. Probably Frontier land second, Asia third, Pandora fourth .

    There's only one land that plays Drops of Jupiter and has F&F

    I think we know the winner here

    Diagon. Harry Potter is the only thing that keeps me coming to Universal.

    #UnpopularOpinion: New York actually has more to offer than Diagon in terms of rides, is immersive, and has many different options for F&B.

    I’m not sure if it’s “better” or not, but I think it’s way under appreciated as a complete land.

    New York is my #2 choice. It’s great for what it is, and has USFs best ride...Revenge of the Mummy.

    Diagon is still #1.

    Totally agree NY is great and from an actual ride perspective I’d put as number 1 but Diagon Alley showed the theme park industry that a land is greater than the sum of its rides. DA has almost a gravitational pull, it’s like the old lays potato chip commercial except instead of “I bet you can’t eat just one” its “I bet you can’t go just once”

    Pleased to see some love for New York here. I voted for Diagon Alley, because I genuinely believe it is the best themed area I've ever seen in terms of replicating a fantastic environment from a film series (like we should get in a park whose slogan used to be "Ride the Movies"), but New York has the best ride in the park, arguably the best store (The Film Vault), and terrific details throughout. Plus The Blues Brothers... though they really belong in Chicago!

    These last 3 comments are all so true! So glad New York is getting the credit it deserves! Yes, Diagon Alley is obviously the best themed, but New York has the best ride in the park easily with Revenge of the Mummy, the best store in the park with The Film Vault, the Blues Brothers which are awesome, and Finnegan’s and Louie’s are two solid eateries that I enjoy, and the land also has some really cool details throughout!

    I threw Springfield a vote because I love it, but the right answer is Diagon Alley :ay:

    New York was the first thing that came to mind when thinking about the best "land" in Universal, but that's only because I didn't think of Diagon Alley as being in Universal.. I feel like I'm walking into another world when I walk into Diagon which shows how f'n great it is. So ya, Diagon #1, NY #2.

    Genuinely lol'd when scrolling down the pics and came to Kidzone!

    Diagon all day long. Still blows me away each time I walk in to it, it's the best land in Florida.

    Obviously voted for Diagon Alley, very hard to beat, but I also love New York. Such a well done area, and home to my favorite ride (may change after a ride on the Hagrid coaster).

    Diagon is cool, but Hogwarts is my home.
