I really enjoyed this place. There were a lot of people when we went. Nonetheless, it was enjoying. Cold weather and nice theme parks. I also liked the butter beer in the Harry Potter area. Must try try is the Spiderman ride.

No, you will still have to buy them. However, you can purchase it from the official hotel itself for the day of your stay and the next day visit. You can’t make an advance express ticket purchase from official hotels.
