The Mouse For Less Tips

Keep in mind, during peak season The Wizarding World of Harry Potter (Hogsmeade & Diagon Alley) use a return ticket system in order to actually enter the Harry Potter world. This happens when one or both Wizarding Worlds reach maximum capacity. Possible wait times can be up to 3 hours in order to enter, plus additional ride wait times.
