I don't think I would bother. The lines weren't all that long on an off-season Saturday. During the week, unless it is peak season (or school holidays), I don't think it is necessary. Going to the more popular rides (e.g., Harry Potter), is your best defense.

I wouldn’t bother unless you are in peak season as the lines were not too bad and an express pass was quite a bit extra $$$

Very easily. Much smaller than Universal in Florida.

I think depends what all you’re planning to see, how much time you have and how much you wanna spend. We visited on a weekday in Oct which was medium time. We got there early and most rides took us 30mins. Some where the queue was long, we went in single rider queue (3 of us), as we didn’t mind being separate just for the ride part saving time from long queue. Remember, Pass is almost US$50/person and still had queue.. we also saw a few rough characters jumping the normal queue to express queue in between when no personnel is around this beating the purpose of it. Overall, I am glad I didn’t get the pass but we had time and still got enough done. Good luck and have fun.

It really depends on how busy the park is......you might be able to hit a weekday and not need it. If it's the summer then weekdays are busy too! Sorry I can't help more

I would also wait until you get there to decide. We weren’t there right at opening (about 30-45 min after) and went directly to the Wizarding World and had zero issues with lines. We were there on a Sunday, and our longest line wait was 30 min for the backlot tour. We were done with everything about 4:30 in the afternoon.

Hi there - based on our experience wait until you get there before deciding. if you get to the gates early - b4 8AM you will be able to do teh Harry Potter rides quickly and work out what the queues are like, if it is busy then buy an express pass. If you have all day and it was a week day like for us - then no need, save your money for something else!

During the week you shouldn't need the express pass unless you're going over any of the holidays.

I would say no during the week but if school is out here locally, you may see more people out!

Express Pass is especially suggested for weekends.
