Maybe someone with drafting or design skills could produce an accurate one for everybody! That would be SO HELPFUL!

Not just shops, but the whole WWOHP.

If you go to the website map, it is interactive and you can see where everything is. Each store is marked.

To find the map go to www.universalorlando.com and click on map up beside My Account and login.

Update on Express Pass / Hotel Guest Line

I wonder if there are any updates on Forbidden Journey having a line for Hotel Guests or Express Pass users? We will be there the first week in October and hope to avoid the lines since we will be a hotel guest. Do they let hotel guests in an hour early? That would take care of it!

Thanks!

I searched on youtube and didn't find anything, and was wondering if there is video of the Forbidden Journey ride shot in night vision(so you can see something other than a pitch black video).

Thx.

How to maximize the FJ castle experience?

Hi everyone!
This is my first post and I want to thank each and every one for the invaluable information I've been gathering for my upcoming trip (next October).
We are (me and DH) Disney veterans (21 trips in 14 years) but newbies concerning Universal parks. The only reason this "travel pattern" changed is the new Harry Potter area inside Islands of Adventure.
We are buying annual passes and staying onsite. My DH is a senior and I really don't fancy motion simulators (they make my sick) so we are not braving FJ but we are really excited about the walk through the castle itself. We want to take lots of pictures and be able to hear the dialogues of the paintings, Dumbledore, Harry, Ron and Hermione etc... Some posts mention that once inside the castle the line moves too quickly to fully enjoy all the sights and the single line allows you to let other people pass you by but skips a lot of the good stuff. Could anyone tell me if we can linger while at the regular line and let people bypass us by saying we are not really going into the ride itself and if not which parts we can or cannot see when taking the single line versus the regular line?
We really appreciate your help! Thank you once more and congrats on your wonderful forum!

What is the shortcut to WWOHP if you are doing early entry? I remember it's somewhere in Seuss area. Thanks for the help.

Apparently they have stopped letting people through there.

Is there still a line to get into the actual Harry Potter part of the park? Last I'd heard there was one in the mornings but at about noon it doesn't exist. Is that still the case? Do they still have you only going in through the Jurassic park side and the other side closed off?

I was there last week and I can tell you that I saw no lines to get into the Potter area, but I did see people go through Seuss Landing but reach a barricade where they tell you to go through other side and visit rest of park first and then come back to see Potter. It´s just amazing how many people enter IOA and go directly to Potter. .

I had early park entry do to offsite Harry package and it made a big difference as I experienced the Potter area early one day (did everyhting, rides, shops, pics, butterbeer, etc) and then after 2pm luckily I entered Honeydukes after a 20 min wait but the rest of shops were full and FJ had 90 min wait.

The line in the castle moved at a decent pace. We had time to see everything, and for my daughter to explain it all to me (I hadn't read the books or seen the movies).

Thank you so much for your answer ExtinctDino! I'm probably the only person hoping the FJ line will move very slowly!

Thank you, Bubba's mom! That's exactly what I wanted to hear, that we can let people ahead of us and take our time without disrupting other people's experience! By the way thank you also for all the great info you provide in this and other threads. It's really important for anyone gathering information for a successful upcoming trip!
