Touring Plans + Park Hopper?

I cannot for the life of me figure out how to do two parks in one day on the Touring Plans website.

Can it be done?

Thanks!

I don't think Touring Plans lets you do IOA/US in one day automatically unless you do half day for each (I might be wrong though).

There's also a touring plan on Orlando Informer for US/IOA in 1 day so you could look into that as an alternative?

I dont think you can on touring plans...FWIW ....It is extremely hard to do 2 parks in one day..if you are willing to skip alot and focus only on certain things, if you stay onsite and have express pass and if you go when the parks are open a little later ( summer) ..MAYBE...but it is not recommended.it is like trying to squeeze MK and DHS into one day .

Yep wouldn't recommend doing two parks in one day. You will miss an awful lot of stuff doing that even with EP.

Both parks have some amazing rides and attractions to see and it would be a shame to miss them.

We are not trying to do both in one day!

We'll be at Universal for 4 days total.

We'll be leaving twice for lunch at City Walk restaurants and taking the Harry Potter train from one park to the other. Since we have the hopper option I thought it might make sense to jump around from morning to afternoon depending on line times at different attractions.

Are you staying on site? If so, there is NO need at all to plan your days. When we visited for our first time last fall, we spent three full days at the parks and always spent half a day at IoA, then half a day at Universal. It was great fun!

Ah.......ok, your OP made it look like you were wanting to do them both in one day

We do both. Some days we just do one park, other days we park hop if we feel like it......we never plan anything.

If you are staying on site you will have unlimited EP for your trip, that makes it much easier.

If you are not staying on site, when you go will depend on how much you get done unless you buy the EP. With DA opening in June it's going to be busy busy!

Not staying onsite. We're going at the beginning of December.

We did buy the unlimited express pass.

Not having to plan kind of freaks me out. It would be so weird.

Does anyone know if the express pass gets you into the Harry Potter area if they close it off for timed returns?

as of now, the ep is not available for the parry hotter ride.


early december has not had horrible crowds in the past years.
it usually is a good time to go.

with the new section opening at the studios, we won't know the full effect it will have on crowds for later this year at this point.

The Harry Potter area would never reach maximum capacity at the beginning of December. That is a really slow time of year.
