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.

Prices fluctuate daily according to a preset calendar.

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.


Inside the Park

ATMs -- Machines accepting cards from banks using the Cirrus, Honor, and PLUS systems are to the right of the main entrance (outside and inside the park) and in San Francisco/Amity near Lombard's Landing restaurant.

Baby Care -- Changing tables are in men's and women's restrooms; there are nursing facilities at Family Services, just inside the main entrance and to the right. A very limited amount of baby supplies is sold at select stores on the premises, so come prepared if you have little ones.

Camera & Film -- Film and disposable cameras are available at the On Location shop in the Front Lot, just inside the main entrance. One-hour photo developing is available, though I don't recommend paying park prices.

Car Assistance -- Battery jumps are provided. If you need assistance with your car, raise the hood and use the call boxes located throughout the garage to call for security.

First Aid -- The First Aid station is located between New York and San Francisco, next to Louie's Italian Restaurant on Canal Street. There's also one just inside the main entrance next to Guest Services.

Lockers -- Lockers are across from Guest Services near the main entrance.

Lost Children -- If you lose a child, go to Guest Services near the main entrance or contact any park employee for assistance. Children younger than 7 should wear name-tags inside their clothing.

Pet Care -- A kennel is available near the parking lot. Ask the parking attendant for directions upon entering the toll plaza. Overnight boarding is not permitted. Owners are responsible for walking and feeding their pets during their stay.

Stroller Rental -- Strollers can be rented in Amity and at Guest Services just inside the entrance to the right. 

Wheelchair Rental -- Regular and electric wheelchairs can be rented in the central hub of the walkway between the parking complex and CityWalk or at Guest Services just inside the main gate.
