The Hogwarts Express offers a magical experience that you must ride both ways. Any Harry Potter fan will absolutely love it.

Pros:

Different experiences based on whether you start in Hogsmeade or London. The experience is truly magical.

Cons:

Must have a park to park pass to ride. Often has long lines.

If you are coming to the parks as a Harry Potter fan you absolutely have to do the train both directions. They really thought out how to make it worth it and enjoyable to hop between both parks in a magical way.

Pros:

The magic is not lost between parks and you get to see the train up close and take pictures with it.

Cons:

Sharing the small space with other families can sometimes be awkward but it's still worth it 100%

Worth it. You have to do it in both directions atleast once. It is best to start in diagon alley but works nicely if either direction is your first time.the Hermione voice actor has to go.

Pros:

Fun, impressive scenes and effects. Puts you into the story.

Cons:

Long wait typically. The Hermione voice actress isn't working out.

This is great and I suggest using this as your mode of transportation between parks. You also have to ride it going both ways because it is a different story both ways. Harry Potter world is just out of this world.

Pros:

Theming, fun

Cons:

Must have a park hopper ticket

I know you may say "if I want and Hogwarts Express experience, i should ride the Kings cross one". But I´m telling you a like the plot on it more! YES! The experience is different and you need to ride both ways!

Pros:

Immersive, good for beat the heat and chill.

Cons:

If you´re short on time, just ride the King Cross one

Love the theming here as it seems you step right into the movie - everthing looks exactly like the set. And the train ride is as if you are arriving at Hogwarts yourself. Love the vintage train as well. British style carriages. Awesom!

Pros:

Authencity of the attraction.

Cons:

Too short of a ride.

This ride is an absolute must-do!! If you are a Harry Potter fanatic like me, you need to ride the Hogwarts Express. the queue was cute but unfortunately it is a popular attraction so you might be waiting in line a while. I waited an hour and a half one of the days I went. BUT there's nothing like being able to say you went through platform 9 3/4s!!! Super fun! Definitely feel like you're in the movie.

Pros:

It's got 2 different "scenarios", going to Hogwarts, and leaving Hogwarts. You feel like you're in the movie! Getting to go "through" platform 9 and 3/4s

Cons:

The queue might be a very long wait

Nothing bad about this ride. It’s a different show each direction so ride both ways if you can!

Pros:

Relaxing, smooth, entertaining

Cons:

I guess some would think it boring
