Virtual Line for Hagrid - can you be in USF

It looks like the early hour for our upcoming trip will be in USF each day. Especially with early closing times (6PM) we want to take advantage of this time. Does anyone know if we can make a virtual line reservation for Hagrid while in USF (once IOA is open) or do we have to get to IOA to make the reservation - we do have 2-park passes.

Thanks

Yes! You can even do it from your hotel room! The Geofence for the VLPs extends pretty far out in the Universal campus.

FYI - Everyone in your group can make VLPs from their own phones for the entire group. It’s not connected to a park ticket or anything. This can allow your group to ride Hagrid multiple times in a day.

We are here now and booked it this morning from the Hard Rock Hotel. Worked great!

Yeah… It’s a big loophole compared to WDW / RotR.

If you have a group of four you can all make reservations for four people. Everyone will get four rides that day!

We loved using early park entry to go to Diagon Alley and then getting a VQ for Hagrids. It was great to take the Hogwarts Express to IOA for Hagrids. NO running for Rope Drop!! VQ for Hagrids is the best!!

Over the last few days they haven’t even used the virtual queue consistently—just stand-by with posted wait times (seemed to be around 25 minutes or so every time I checked).

I really hope they bring back the Virtual line while we are there.

It depends on crowds. Be assured though that if they aren’t using it the standby is like only 30 minutes. People have been reporting being able to ride like 6 - 8 times a day.
