You can still enter the Harry Potter area without a numbered ticket in early 2024.

As of April 2024, the USJ Harry Potter area is open to visitors without an area entry ticket.

Last year, 2023, it was thought that if it was going to be crowded, it might be crowded when the new event was due to start on 17 March 2023. Depending on crowds, it was thought likely that numbered admission tickets would be issued for the first time in several years, but there were no numbered tickets on Fridays and Saturdays from 17 March, when the event started. The Harry Potter area is open to visitors without numbered tickets until April 2024. Numbered tickets are not issued even if there are large crowds in the Harry Potter area.

USJ Parks Free admission to the Harry Potter area immediately after opening.

USJ, 'Harry Potter Area'.can enter without numbered tickets up to a certain number of people when the doors open first thing in the morning (free entry). In 2019 and 2020, there were a few days when numbered tickets with restrictions were required. 2019 onwards is free admission, except during Halloween.

Incidentally, the same applies to other areas of Univa (such as Mario's Super Nintendo World).

It is important to note that Universal Studios Japan (USJ) opens earlier than the time indicated on its official website. Depending on crowds, the park will open early, at least one hour before the published time.

USJ Early Park Inn visitors, go to left column.

Until USJ opens in the morning, the area in front of the entrance gates is overflowing with guests waiting for it to open. There is a special queue for Early Park Inn guests. The Early Park Inn queue is to the left of the gate, so don't make the mistake of queuing for the regular guests.

Early Park Inn is a special system for travellers who have purchased an official hotel and Universal Studios Japan admission ticket as part of a JTB overnight tour package. Guests with Early Park In entitlement can enter USJ 15 minutes before the opening time.

Unfortunately, there are no Early Park Inn only tickets available - this is a special offer for JTB users only. You can enter the park 15 minutes earlier than the general public, so you can first enjoy all attractions and facilities without queuing up. Of course, if you enter the Harry Potter area, you can enjoy a bit of time without people in the reserved area.

USJ Early Park Inn hotel accommodation blancs can be booked through JTB.

General admission guests wait in front of the USJ Main Gate.

General Guests will wait in line in front of the non-Early Park Entry gates until the Park opens, and will be able to enter the Harry Potter area freely up to a certain number of people from the front of the line when they enter USJ and head to the Harry Potter area. If the number of visitors exceeds a certain number, entry will be restricted and numbered tickets will be issued.

Harry Potter Area Entry Tickets & Lottery Tickets are issued by Central Park ticketing machines.

Numbered tickets are issued at the Central Park ticketing machine next to the lagoon.

After the free admission, there will be a sign for numbered tickets.

Harry Potter Area.When the Harry Potter area is crowded, admission will be restricted approximately 30 minutes after the park opens. It is not as crowded as it could be. You can freely enter and leave the Harry Potter Area at any time.

The Harry Potter area in 2023 is very busy with inbound visitors from abroad on weekdays and weekends, but no numbered tickets are issued. Visitors can freely enter and exit without a confirmed admission ticket.

The number of numbered tickets issued is capped for each time slot and is on a first-come, first-served basis and ends as soon as they are gone.

USJ 'Harry Potter Area' Entrance Order Tickets

The 'numbered tickets for the Harry Potter Area' allow entry to the Harry Potter Area at the designated entry time. Numbered tickets with a yellow bio will be issued at a different location (Stage 14). Numbered tickets will also be converted to lottery tickets when distribution ends.

The admission ticket for the Harry Potter Area, pictured above, is printed '18:30-19:30'. This means that you can enter between 18:30 and 19:30. As a rule, entry is not possible before or after this time. If you miss this time slot due to other attractions, please do not give up. Ask the crew (wizards and witches) at the entrance to the Stone Circle at the entrance to the Harry Potter Area for a numbered ticket. They will probably be able to help you (laughs).

In addition, you can purchase a 'guaranteed admission ticket' or a 'ticket to the USJ' from a travel agent or an official USJ ticket shop in advance.Express PassIf you have a 'Confirmation Ticket' or 'Express Pass', you do not need an entrance ticket.

Raffle tickets do not guarantee entry to the Harriotta area.

Lottery tickets for entry to the Harry Potter Area (USJ Harriotta).

Entrance Lottery Tickets for the Harry Potter Area may be issued when all Entrance Lottery Tickets for the Harry Potter Area have been issued for the day. If you obtain an Entrance Lottery Ticket, you may be able to enter the Harry Potter Area if you are lucky in the lottery.

The lottery ticket system works in the same way: when there is a cancellation of a scheduled visitor, a lottery is held and only if you win the lottery will you be allowed to enter the Haripota area. In both cases, it depends on luck and the level of congestion to gain entry to the Haripota area.

If you go to the Harry Potter area as soon as the park opens, you will have free entry. According to Cast Member information, on weekend holiday mornings, some people arrive by the first train and wait for the park to open. On the weekend I visited, the park opened at 8:15am and by the time I arrived at 7:30am, there was already a huge queue of over 1000 people lined up at the gates.

Due to the crowds, the park opened early at 8:00am but it took about 20 minutes to get through the entrance gates. To ensure entry to the Harriotta area on weekends and public holidays, it is recommended that you buy a guaranteed entry ticket such as an Express Pass in advance. However, on weekdays, it appears that you can get a numbered ticket even around lunchtime... (as of 23 July 2014).

2019 2020 has never been crowded to the point of issuing raffle tickets; I think the last few days were during the 2018 Halloween season.
