Hagrids Returns to Early Park Admission

| | |

This morning we got word that beginning March 2nd through April 17th  Hagrids Magical Creatures Motorbike Adventures will be returning to Early Park Admission at Universal Orlando Resort. Between Hagrids and Jurassic World ValociCoaster this is great news for those who have the option to take advantage of that extra hour at Universal’s Islands of Adventure.

Guests with Early Park Admission have the benefit of entering either Universal Studios Florida or Islands of Adventure (as selected by Universal) and, additionally, Volcano Bay an hour before the parks open to the general public. For most of the year, this early-entry period at the theme parks starts at 8:00 am, meaning everyone else will be allowed in around 9:00 am. During the busier seasons, Universal may open one or more of the parks an hour before that, with EPA starting at 7:00 am and allowing other guests in at 8:00. And during the peak season, Universal may opt to have EPA at both theme parks simultaneously.

Even with Early Park Admission, we recommend arriving at the turnstiles 30 minutes before the gates open, although you may want to get there 45 minutes or a full hour beforehand if you’re heading to one of the most popular rides or if you’re visiting during a busy period.
