  1. “You have these two great parks. Now you have an opportunity to go from one park to another in a one-story experience,” said Mark Woodbury, president of Universal Creative.

    “You go to Universal Studios Florida, you can get on at Diagon Alley, you can get on the Hogwarts Express and take it over to Islands of Adventure, the Wizarding World, Hogsmeade, an unbelievable opportunity.”

    Woodbury noted the train will run both directions between the two parks.

    “Most people that come to the resort now experience both parks. This will be a great way for them to do that," he said.

    And even if guests were to choose just one park, they'd still get a "Harry Potter experience," he said.

    He did not say how the parks would handle a one-park ticketholder who wanted to board Hogwarts Express or if a two-park ticket would be required. A Universal official said more details would arrive as the grand opening gets closer.

  3. I was thinking more of seeing the train run backwards from an spectators view. Maybe it will not be as bad as I am thinking.

  4. No loop, the tracks bifurcate in the middle of the course and the trains pass each other. The trains will indeed run backwards if you take it from Hogwarts -> Diagon Alley, but you won't be able to see the engine when you board at that station, keeping up the illusion.

    The engine will be visible when you board at London and will head in the "correct" direction.

  5. That's a very good question!

  6. If there is no loop for the hogwarts express, does this mean the Train will be running backwards half of the time??

  7. Disney and more speculates that the coaster concept in this video will be used for the upcoming Diagon Alley Gringott's ride:

    The Hogwarts Express has arrived at Universal! The iconic locomotive and train tender was placed on the tracks between the two theme parks today.

    Just like in the books and films – guests will be able to board the Hogwarts Express and travel between The Wizarding World of Harry Potter – Hogsmeade, which is open at Islands of Adventure, and ‘London’ when The Wizarding World of Harry Potter – Diagon Alley opens at Universal Studios Florida next year.
