Yes, if the park opens by 8 get there at 7. We got there at 8:20 for a 9am opening and the line was already double file out to Margaritaville. It was longer than that by the time they started letting people in.

I don’t know if this is news yet, but I was walking out of Hagrid’s today when I overheard a cast member say that single rider lines open up next week!

wasn't it determined that single rider line doesn't always work out on this line since guests are 2 to a row vs 4?
Yes. Hagrid has had single rider offered on and off prior to COVID. If available you’ll be able to split off before the bridge on the right and go straight to the merge room.

I noticed today on the app that it says "This attraction is currently testing a new Virtual Line experience. Follow directions on in-park signage or visit vltest.universalorlando.com to join". Has anyone tried this for Hagrid? Is it better than the previous method on the app?

We haven’t yet but it requires a log in. Very interesting.

When I went to the website it required your location services to be turned on and "in the park". I'm not sure what they classify as in park, whether it's in an on site hotel or actually inside the gates of the parks. It almost makes it seem like people were booking VL tickets outside the parks which is a little odd.
