Tickets for both parks cost the same, and you must specify the day you’re going. Like Disney, Universal charges more on busy days. Unlike at Disney, you can almost always get in. But Universal also gives you a $20 discount if you buy multi-day tickets online, so it’s crucial you do so.

To enter both parks on the same day and to ride the Hogwarts Express train that links the two parks, you must have a park-to-park ticket. If you buy a limited, one-park ticket and change your mind midway through the day, don’t worry. There are ticket upgrade kiosks at the Hogwarts Express train stations that simply charge you the difference in price for a park-to-park ticket, and you can be on your way again.
