Hogwarts Express at Universal Orlando Resort to Remain Closed for Rest of Week, Possibly Longer

The Hogwarts Express at Universal Orlando Resort is closed for the fourth day in a row. Team Members are telling guests it will be closed for the rest of the week and possibly into next week.

We spoke to a Team Member at King’s Cross Station in Universal Studios Florida, who said it would be closed until at least Saturday, January 22, and maybe beyond that.

Despite what the sign outside the station says, this does not seem to have been a planned maintenance closure. It’s possible that a part for the train unexpectedly broke and is being shipped.

The Hogwarts Express is a convenient way to travel between Universal Studios Florida and Universal’s Islands of Adventure, connecting the two Wizarding World of Harry Potter lands.

  1. Thank you for the continued updates. Even though it is disappointing news, I’d rather know before our visit so I can prepare the Harry Potter fans in our family. I’ll keep checking back.

  2. Will Universal be refunding the difference in price for a single vs park to park ticket? Visiting this weekend and the resentment I’ll feel for having spent hundreds of dollars for an experience we can’t use will prevent me from fully enjoying my visit.

    1. My little one is sitting in his Ravenclaw robe in tears. We arrive the 25th. This was to be the highlight of the trip
