Check out the Park Hours for Ascendio Week here!
Universal’s Islands of Adventure® is open from 8 AM til 9 PM each day during Ascendio week! This means:
- Guests at any of the Loews hotels, including the Loews Portofino Bay Resort, can enter The Wizarding World of Harry Potter™ starting at 7 A.M. (admission ticket required)
- Night of a Thousand Wizards 2 actually begins after 9 PM, when anyone without a NoaTW2 ticket has to leave The Wizarding World of Harry Potter™. You can still get NoaTW2 tickets online through July 9 here, or buy yours at the Registration Desk in the convention space at the hotel from 10 AM to 6 PM on July 12.
Remember, the Welcome Feast on Friday starts at 10 AM, and formal programming at Ascendio doesn’t start until 11 AM on Friday and 9 AM on Saturday, so if you have a full-day ticket for either or both of those days, you can enjoy The Wizarding World of Harry Potter™ for a few hours in the morning. And if next week is anything like this week, the temperatures overnight (as in, during NoaTW2) and into the morning will be in the high 70s. Lovely!
