Hagrid’s Magical Creatures Motorbike Adventure is using Virtual Line only today and the line starts back in The Lost Continent.
Welcome to Hogsmeade on a Saturday.
The Wizarding World is always the busiest section of each park, and today we found a lot of crowding in Hogsmeade. Hagrid’s Magical Creatures Motorbike Adventure was closed last weekend after a backstage fire, so we’re not surprised there are many people trying to experience the attraction.
Harry Potter and the Forbidden Journey has been experiencing some technical difficulties lately, and even though the ride was not open, guests were allowed to enter the queue and wait for the attraction to reopen.
This guy went to great lengths to photo bomb us, so we’ll allow it.
Stanchions were set up for the Forbidden Journey queue since the entrance usually gets very backed up due to the locker situation. We can’t wait for those new lockers to get finished!
The end of the line crept right up to the edge of Jurassic Park.
Approaching Jurassic Park River Adventure, we could see crowding around the entrance. The attraction was using Virtual Line only, which seems to add a little bit of chaos to the area.
Between checking Virtual Line, checking Express passes, and explaining to guests that there is no standby and how to use the app, the entrance seems to be very busy.
The locker lines are usually long, including the line for The Incredible Hulk Coaster lockers. These lines tend to move slowly, but Team Members use megaphones to give guests tips on how to make things more efficient.
Several restaurants have reopened around the parks and CityWalk, including Bread Box Handcrafted Sandwiches. We stopped in and got a Chocolate Hazelnut milkshake for a quick snack.
Over at Universal Studios Florida, we stopped into Studio Sweets and found some samples of their new fudge and roasted nuts.
A lot of people were just hanging out near Hollywood Rip Ride Rockit. At least people were social distancing.
The line for the Halloween Horror Nights Tribute Store is crazy now that the new rooms have opened. Because of the crowds, the line wrapped around through the extended queue for Race Through New York Starring Jimmy Fallon.
This “King of the Silver Screen” shirt is available at multiple locations, including the Tribute Store and Universal Studios Store, for $28.
That’s all for this visit to the Universal Orlando Resort. Thanks for following us and be sure to stay tuned for more updates!
