    This might be a stupid question, but when a package says price per adult, and your party is 2 adults and 2 kids do you calculate the total cost just by number of adults?

    So I am curious as to how this works. I am a pass holder and was planning on being at the park the 27th and 28th before I found out about this event. Do they block off the wizarding world sections for the event. I assume it is a separate ticket. How does ticketing work for pass holders? I saw a vacation "package" but we already have a hotel and everything booked.

    Nope you just show up. None of it is blocked off. They have lines for experiences, but that's about it.

    There are certain things that are only for the separately purchased ticket, but all normal WWHP theme-park stuff is still open to the public.

    Oh okay thanks! I thought as much but I never saw where the separate ticket was sold. Unless it just isn't for sale yet.

    Ah wish I was still working the express. Last time Matthew Lewis came through (I wasn't there but heard about it) he porter greeted him with "Professor Longbottom, good to have you back, sir". :)

    I see they're saving the best for last. We all know the Phelps twins are going to show up, even if they're not invited.

    That package is a really good deal though. So much extra for pretty much the same price as a 3-day, park-to-park ticket.

    I was about to say, that price is incredible. The ticket alone basically costs that much??
