Even if you’re not a die-hard Harry Potter fan, we still recommend taking some time to visit The Wizarding World of Harry Potter during your trip to the Universal theme parks.
You don’t need a separate ticket to visit the Wizarding World of Harry Potter at the Universal Orlando Resort. Instead, your park ticket will give you access to The Wizarding World of Harry Potter.
However, it’s important to note that The Wizarding World of Harry Potter is actually an area split across two different Universal Studios parks; Islands of Adventure and Universal Studios.
If you have a park-to-park ticket, then you’ll be able to visit both areas of the Wizarding World of Harry Potter on a single day and take the Hogwarts Express between the two.
Meanwhile, if you have a single-day ticket to Universal Studios, then you’ll only have entry to the Universal Studios park and, with it, the Diagon Alley of The Wizarding World of Harry Potter.
Alternatively, if you have a single-day ticket to Islands of Adventure, then you’ll only have entry to the Islands of Adventure park and with it the Hogsmeade area of the Wizarding World of Harry Potter.
Some ticket packages provide you with multiple days at Universal Studios Resort but no park-to-park access meaning you can only spend a day at one park and not travel between the two.
This will allow you to experience both areas of The Wizarding World of Harry Potter during your trip. However, it will not provide you with the ability to ride on the Hogwarts Express.
