    • I got this email yesterday too. Pretty good deal if you plan on spending that long at Universal. I thought their last deal for 2+2 was good. I wonder if their attendance is down or if they're worried about Galaxy's Edge taking away some of their business when that opens up?

    • This is perfect, I'll be down in November.

      However , I'm overwhelmed. Why are there like 7 different options to choose from and price points.

    • I posted in the other travel thread how Orlando is one of my favorite Americana destinations, there's just something sensible and enjoyable about the locale.

      Highly recommend folks visit at some point... Universal Orlando is one of many hotspots.

      God bless.

      In short, there are two options with sub options.

      1-park per day ticket: Allows admission to one park per day. You can use for either Islands of Adventure or Universal Studios Orlando.

      Park-to-park ticket: Allows admission to both parks each day (you can walk to either park or use the Hogwarts Express).

      The sub option is adding the third park (water park) called Volcano Bay. And then different prices for child and adult.

    • If u are on a vacation with Kids, Do you really want to do 3 spots in a day?

      The 2019 3-Park, 5-Day Park-to-Park Promo Ticket entitles one (1) guest admission to Universal Studios Florida™, Universal’s Islands of Adventure™ AND Universal’s Volcano Bay™ on the same day.

      It's not about trying to do 3 spots all in a day. With kids either due to types of rides, crowds, etc, you may want to jump park to park.

      With 5 ticket days included in this deal I personally feel like the park-to-park option is unnecessary and the extra money is better off spent getting an express pass.

    • Instead of a 2 day ticket, buy one day park to park with Universal Express (fast pass) to bypass all the line ups.

      Go when the park opens, and you can finish all the rides in one day with time to spare for another go at your favourite rides.

      I never need to spend more than a day at Universal Studio. Of course, some families with young kids may want to do things at a more leisurely pace and spend more than a day there.

      It depends on the time of year you visit Universal Studios. I just came back in February (somewhat low season) and a fastpass would have been an absolute waste. Fastpass can be purchased in the park at anytime if u deem necessary. (Make sure to download the Orlando Studio APP which tells you wait times for every ride).

      Also anyone stay on Universal Resorts are usual entitled to a free fast pass as a huge perk. Check with resort

      Express pass only comes with deluxe resorts, so not all universal properties.

      You do get early park access though with all resorts.

    • Is the park to park ticket worth it just to ride the Hogwarts Express?

      edit: and is volcano bay worth it? Never been to universal studios

    • I have never been, but have been doing lots of research on universal.
      Apperantly the hogwart express is worth doing and if you do early park admission (stay at resort), it is only one park that is open early. So if you didn’t have park to park you would miss out unless you used that park for the day.

      The other advantage is sometimes one park is open later then the other. So if you have park to park you would just move to the other park.
      Also some use volcano bay to cool off then go back to the parks later. Without park to park you wouldn’t be able to do that.

      Not sure if it’s worth the extra expense, but I think those are the main variables.

    • Just got back from there. Only 2+2 was available at the time. We did 3 days in the park and the last day at Volcano Bay. If I had to do it again, I would have done 2 days Volcano Bay and 2 days at the park. Everyone in our group including kids enjoyed the waterpark the most. It was the best waterpark we have ever been too. Unless you are are a true Harry Potter fan the Hogwarts Express was not worth the extra expense.

    • We were there in Feb over the family day long weekend (our first time there) and got the 2+2 days promo. We visited the 2 parks only, not volcano bay. By the end of the 3rd day, we pretty much rode all the rides we wanted to ride at least once.

      The Friday wasn't too busy, but the last 3 days were crazy busy as it was also the President's day holiday weekend. Lineups for most popular rides after 11am were quite long. So glad we had the Express passes that came with our hotel. It shaves off the wait time by just over 1/2 (based on the free app/wifi that Universal provides). Note that not all the Universal hotels give free express passes. I saw some folks standing in line for up to 90 mins to ride Hogwarts express or Escape from Gringotts, crazy!

      If you don't get the Park-to-park option, then you can't ride Hogwarts express (and can't easily go between the 2 parks). For the big Potter fans, this is a must, as the train ride experience is amazing and different both direction. Walking from one park to another can take awhile too, due to the distance.

      We stayed at the Royal Pacific hotel, and they give you early 8am access to the Studios park only (not Islands of Adventure).

      We didn't do Volcano bay, as my wife and I would've been bored at a water park.

      Other quick tips
      - Popeyes ride: bring swimwear and change before the ride in the washroom (no lockers nearby), you will fully soaked (and it's fun). Then go upstairs on the boat and try to squirt the other riders with the water guns.
      - the only decent meal was Mama Della's at Portofino hotel. All the other meals were meh. All the Harry Potter themed drinks were nasty sweet, even our kids hated it (butter beer included).
      - definitely visit Diagon Alley at night, it's a cool experience
      - gentlemen: do NOT stand in the very front of the Celestine Warbeck show at Diagon alley, or else you'll get dragged on stage by the singers and forced to dance with them (very awkward moment, unless you're into that sort of thing)
      - we didn't need a cell/data plan, as there's free wifi at the orlando airport and the entire Universal resort. Riding Uber was definitely cheaper than the airport taxi.

    • Universal Orlando is also on Groupon right now. Lots of options for days/parks etc. Not sure if you can add promo codes (I tried and it didn’t work for me). Not sure if groupon works out cheaper than the one in OP.

      Fwiw park to park really saved a lot of time taking the Hogwarts express and was fun to ride (and I’m not even a Potter fan). As someone else said, if you ARE a potter fan, this is a must!!

      You could do one Universal park in the early morning while it's less crowded, then hit the water park in the afternoon. Then on the next day you can do both sections of the Wizarding World of Harry Potter by riding the train inside the park and complete whichever park you haven't seen.

      It also depends on the age of the kid. The water park closes earlier. When we went to Universal in Jan 2017 (before the water park had even opened), we were able to hit a few very popular rides without wait in just the last 30 minutes of opening. So that's another way to combine the two if there are a few close-by rides you really want to do.
