Here is a very user friendly guide that helps you save time waiting in line for a popular attraction at either Universal Studios or Islands Of Adventure.

Of course, staying at either Disney's or Universal's hotels has its perks. Disney has great transportation but Universal offers something a lot more useful. It's a new program and what it does is get you to the Front of the line at any ride or attraction at either park, as much as you want all day with little or no wait! How does it work, well its similar to the new Universal Express pass. What you do is show your room key card from your Universal Resort to a Cast member that is near the ride, and they will show you to the front of the line.

You may also trying the new Universal Express Pass. This new program, which is very similar to Disney's Fastpass, offers the same benefits to park guests. Here's how it works. You go to a Universal Express Pass Distributation booth near a popular attraction, and you can either swipe or scan your card, depending on the condition of the card, if it rains ect..... You get to choose between 2 or 3 different times. When you choose that time, you get a small card with the times printed on it. You come back to that ride during those times and you enter the Express Line and you go the the font of the line and save a lot of time by not waiting in line. You may only get a new pass every two hours per park ticket.

Thats not it! There is another way to get on a popular ride with shorter waits in line. It's caled Single Rider Line. If you dont want to wait in line and dont mind if you don't ride this attraction with your friends or family, then this is the way to go. You enter the Single rider line and sometime you get a card, and this feature saves about 50% of the time you would wait in line.

Not that I'm trying to diss Universal Express FOTL access for on-site guess. My thought is that in the future Universal well have to rethink how they do this, as there would be far to many on-site guests using the service that would begin to cause problems for day guests.

Before Notatourist says this, you can also take the VIP tour for around $120 or so per person. That is the true front of the line access. Plus, the tour guides are pretty knowedgeable about the parks and treat you like royality. Just ask Robin! :)

Good, good advice.

But, here's some more, don't call a Universal employee a Cast Member. Disney calls their employees that and Universal don't really have a special word to describe their employees. ;)

BTW, are you allowed to use FOTL, if you stay on-site and use the Orlando FlexTicket ?
I suppose you are, but I just wanna make sure, you know;)

(Going to stay at the RPH by the end of this month :) It will be our first on-site stay. So I want to make everything will be all right (Somewhere in my head I know everything will be great as Earl and the rest of the Universal Crew never let us down before:cool: )

Anyway, Thanks for your answers!

Hi, Megatoby:

Your card key is your access key in the parks, so what kind of ticket you use is not an issue.

Have a great trip!

Thank you sooooooooooooo much for your very quick answer!:)

I told my parents to rather stay at the Royal Pacific and how great FOTL is and all the things....
I suppose they would have "killed" me if I informed them wrong.:rolleyes:

BTW, Thank you Robinrs!:)
