I can’t seem to find exactly the info we need. I’ve got a fam of 4 with two teens who ONLY want to do WWoHP, but it’s on a crowd-level-9 day and we won’t have express passes. Due to one gluten free diet, we need to do Three Broomsticks for late breakfast and Leaky Caldron for early dinner. With that info, I’m trying to figure out the best touring plan for us. We have early entry, but should we walk into Hogsmeade at rope drop or instead start by riding on the Hogwarts train from Diagon Alley? Could we then walk onto the Hogsmeade rides without much wait time even without an app reservation? Not sure yet if we’re going to get wands, but would plan to spend any remaining time simply exploring before breakfast around 9:30 at Brooksticks. Are there any HP shows in this area, or are they all in Diagon? Does it matter what time we head back to the other park (on the train of course)? Should we aim for late afternoon to let the crowds dissipate a little? Will we miss any of the shows if we dawdle?
Thanks SO much for any light you can shed!!
