UO and IOA on 5/8-strategy?

One day In parks tomorrow. First time with no express passes-staying at cabana bay. Have APs. If our priority is HP, velocicoaster, and Bluto :), how would you structure the day?

What are your priorities in the WWOHP? Normally, you want to do Hagrid’s first, then VC. You will save the most time by doing those 2 first, in that order. The temp won’t hit 80 degrees til 10am, so you may not want to get soaked on Bluto before that. Probably want to arrive at the main entrance by 7:30.

Here is what is open during EPA in IOA:

  • Hagrid’s Magical Creatures Motorbike Adventure™
  • Harry Potter and the Forbidden Journey™
  • Flight of the Hippogriff™
  • Jurassic World VelociCoaster
  • Ollivanders™

I’d say Hagrid’s is our priority-followed by FJ and Hogwarts Express. We are happy to do single rider where it’s available.

The wait for FJ will be pretty short (15-25 min) all morning. HE will have a very short wait until around 1pm, when the wait will jump to 30 min or so.

Oh, and Bluto will be around a 15 minute wait all morning too. If you want to do a second ride on Hagrid’s, wait til after 11am. Peak waits for the day at Hagrid’s is approx. 8:30-10:00am

This is all based off of today’s data


Looks like waits are considerably lower than yesterday @Limace
Hope you’re having a great day!
