Question WWoHP in one day?

Hey guys!

Iím starting planning my Nov Ď19 trip to WDW(4N/5D)!

I am a HUGE Harry Potter fan so I want to take one day to visit UO/IoA specifically for Wizarding World. Outside of a few other attractions (ET, Mummy, Skull Island, JP) and shopping, Iíd most likely not even go to UO if not for HP.

My question is can that be done in one day? Has anyone done this?

Thanks in advance.

Yes, it can be done in one day! (We've done it!)
Be sure to get a park-to-park ticket so you can ride the Hogwarts Express. . .and be sure to ride it both directions--it's different each way!
Adding Express Pass upgrade to your ticket will also help as now all Harry Potter attractions are included in Express Pass.
Have fun!

Thanks!

I was thinking of getting the express pass. I’m also thinking of adding their quick service meal plan to eat at the Three Broomsticks. I can’t wait to taste my first Butterbeer! ; )

You won’t be sorry you tried the Butterbeer! It’s yummy! Since your trip is in November, the frozen stuff might not have the impact that it has in the heat of summer, but I really do like the taste of the frozen more than the non-frozen.

I agree that you can do both of the Harry Potter areas, plus your other select attractions, in one day, but you really do need the park to park ticket and the Express Pass.

If you are a WDW vet, you might be underwhelmed by the general theming at UO. IOA’s is much more extensive. Of course, both HP areas have outstanding theming.

Enjoy your day!

Thanks! I have seen in my research that Iíll need the park to park. No way am I missing out on riding the Hogwarts Express!

Iím hoping theyíll have the hot butterbeer available. Iíve heard itís really delish. Iím planning on trying all the BB options. The fudge and potted cream will definitely be going back to POR though. Between the hot, frozen and regular drinks and the ice cream, Iím going to be on a sugar high that day!

Enjoy!

We share the butter beer drinks. They are very sweet and filling and I could never drink one by myself.

Be sure to get there before the park opens and expect it to be really busy between 11-4 and not as much before and after.

Yes you can do it in one day. Agree you need to take the Hogswarts express both ways. But do not simply turn around and go back, part of the HP experience in both parks is entering them from the main area. By the by I liked the Butterbeer ice cream the best. Also don't miss the pumpkin pasties.
