If you have to navigate the crowds of Orlando theme parks (whether it’s the Walt Disney World Resort, the Universal Orlando Resort, or SeaWorld Orlando) you’ll want to know peak crowd times, the best line-skipping deals, and how to make a vacation at busy times not only doable but enjoyable and stress-free.
The Early to the Park Tip is always a Best Tip,
Whether Staying onsite or just One-Daying it,
Most people on vacation are dragging themselves out of bed each day because they are tired or just have the "I'm on vacation I do what i want when i want" attitude.
Rope Droppers are always better off.
AND the Universal Express Passes are Great even at a price and be sure to remember them at Universal's Halloween Horror Nights. Lines for the Haunted Houses can exceed an hour.
LASTLY, Stay onsite at Universal at one of their Original three Hotels (Portofino, Hard Rock or Royal Pacific). Even though they appear pricey, the room key serves as your Express Pass for FREE. So when figuring the actual VALUE of the room deduct the price of the number of Room Guests in each room multiplied by $35 (the cat of an Express Pass).
Universal Express Passes are wonderful time savers and will make your visit much easier and more fun. Just be aware that the $35.00 "starting at" price is just that. Two park express passes can exceed $100.00 per person on busy days. Just make sure you check the prices before purchasing. This also makes staying at a Universal Studios deluxe resort even more of a bargain with free express access to the rides during your entire stay.
