Hogwarts Express (Universal Orlando)


The best way to get between parks is the Hogswarts Express.  In Universal Studios you must enter King's Cross station to board

As you wait your turn to board you get to go past several props seen in the Harry Potter movies

Hedwig is also waiting for the Express

At King's Cross, you actually board on Platform 9 3/4

There are signs all over to let you know what platform you are on

The train has arrived it is time to board

The train actually backs into the station

Currently they are only loading one party per compartment, which makes it a lot nicer than in the past

In Islands of Adventure, you load/disembark at Hogsmeade Station.  It has a completely different feel compared to King's Cross
