If you are going to park hop, this is the way to do it. The detail and design is top notch and the experience is different depending on where you are traveling. Very cool for Harry Potter fans I would recommend experiencing it at least once if you can, and if you can't your overall Harry Potter experience will still be amazing.

Pros:

A relaxing and fun way to travel between parks

Cons:

Lines can be long The ride is short

Must do at least once. It’s super cool to be able to ride the Hogwarts Express and I love that you can look out the window to see where you’re going. Not worth it if the line is over 25 minutes because you can walk to IOA faster than that.

Pros:

Better than walking to IOA

Cons:

Fake characters in the hallway scene

If you’re a Harry Potter fan, DEFINITELY try it. If you aren’t, I would maybe skip it. I am a huge Harry Potter fan and I personally wasn’t amazed, I did enjoy it, but I wouldn’t wait longer than 20-30 minutes to ride it again.

Pros:

Immersive experience going in-between Diagon Alley & Hogsmeade

Cons:

Has a long wait most of the time and it’s a short ride for the wait

This is the best way to get between parks. It combines a slow, but exciting ride with complete immersion into the world of Harry Potter. Each way has a different show so you’re sure to catch some new exciting detail on each ride. Is it the most thrilling ride? No, but there are some thrilling elements to contend with.

Pros:

Both a ride and mode of transportation, excellent theming in both the ride and queue, very immersive experience.

Cons:

You need a park-to-park ticket or an annual pass in order to ride, wait times can be on the long side
