  1. Unfortunately the closure will impact our visit. We are coming from Germany and will stop at Universal Studios at 10th of June as my Girlfriend is a real Potterhead. Of course very sad but we will enjoy our trip I guess.

  2. I bought 1 day tickets on June 9th. I was looking forward to riding hogwarts express between the 2 parks. The date should be scheduled further in advance so people dont get disappointed in paying so much money and only get told 1 month away that they cant enjoy a major ride

  3. Yes we are going to be impacted two attractions my kids were hyped to ride are closed now for our visit. Yes this trip is planned months in advance so changes cannot be made after this very expensive purchase. Now we must exit/enter the parks at the main entrance to go between. There should be a free use any day ticket issued for this inconvenience.

  4. Absolutely impacted. So they give you notice after your cancellation date passes. I believe this is called bait and switch in other industries. We purchase stay at hard rock resort to get unlimited express for two days. This is an attempt to universal after doing only Disney on our Florida trip
    No recourse to change tickets take away major reason for visit and choice of hotel.
    Before we even get there Universal has become a disappointment

  5. ABSOLUTELY IMPACTED! I have two grandkids coming in 6/13-6/16. Their only “must do” was the Harry Potter exhibit. The Hogwarts express was a big part of it. When I go to Universal to buy tickets online it says “Hogwarts Express Included”. Does that mean there will be a discount if it is not included?
