But, one of the most popular attractions for both young and old to experience is the Hogwarts Express that runs between the two Parks.

Unfortunately for Guests visiting Universal Orlando recently, the train has been experiencing an unexpected closure.

The Universal Orlando Resort App shows the Hogwarts Express in both the Hogsmeade Station and at King’s Cross Station as closed. This has been the case since yesterday.
