Question Waiting for Grinch Character Breakfast

Anyone else care to join me in this wait game?
I'm looking into booking the earliest time available for Dec 21. Does anyone know what is the earliest time you can book? They can't even tell me that when I call.

Universal planning isn't like Disney planning. The character breakfasts don't seem to sell out. Don't worry.

I was hoping to get at least a 7:30. =/ I am kinda hoping to sneak a little something something ..lol.. I know if we finish eating before the parks open we can head into the park before the gates open. I'm hoping to get an early start for HP. This is very important to me because DS 11 us a HP fanatic and it seems that other than staying onsite (which I tried booking at least one night with no luck, they are expensive!) This is the only way to have an advantage.

CS said they most likely won't open up the reservations until mid November!! That won't stop me from calling every other day!

You can get early admission by booking an offsite package through the universal orlando website.

lol, no, just been around a long, long time!!!

Glad that will work for you. You have to make sure you book through the universalorlando.com website though because you will be assigned special tickets that you will pick up at the kiosks just outside the gates and the tickets will be marked with a code that will give you early admission.

Nope. That is reserved for those who pay the big bucks and stay onsite.

However, Forbidden Journey and Ollivanders don't accept express anyways, so getting early admission is the best bet if that is that main thing you are going for.

Too good to be true, huh. Oh, well, early admission is still better than nothing at all.
