    Just noticed this comment.. Resort guests will also ride Hogwarts Express to the second park as it is opening. Only way to beat them is to join them.

    As of early June, the HE does not even open until 9:00 (or whenever the other park opening is). You can definitely rope-drop the non-EPA park and get to HP first, as they usually start letting people in 10 or so minutes early.

    i was pretty surprised that the HE did not do this "unofficial early entry" as well, so maybe we just got unlucky with some OCD TMs. :)

    Well it certainly depends on when HE can open for the day, but if Gringotts goes down then FJ scrambles to open along with HE and they route guests to it prior to IOA opening.

    I think I crowds are a bit down overall. Hogwarts Express has been mostly a walk on the last two times I was there other than the afternoon park hopping glut. The standby lines are moving more slowly, don't doubt it, they're just not always very long.

    Gringotts seems to have more actual express users than Forbidden Journey. Forbidden Journey appears to have no express signage, just a student constantly asking for express to go a different way past the lockers.

    My last Gringotts ride was a 40 minute wait that started inside the lobby. My last FJ ride was about 35 minutes from the doorway into the castle from the greenhouse, and it moved slowly enough for the dark arts classroom to start repeating.
