I wish they did something like E.T. (which I LOVE) or even something like the spiderman ride.
I know ET like ride would be AWESOME. I LOVE ET. That's what I was hoping for. ;o) And I agree also with that ex unicorn ride, that wasn't that mild for a kiddy ride either. Maybe one will be tho, we can wish!

How cool would it be if they put the Durmstrang ship in the lagoon?

Early park admission

I've noted on the Universal website, that on-site hotel "vacation packages" include early park admission. One hour before posted opening time.

Does anyone know how they will be able to tell if you have a "vacation package" or an on-site room only reservation?

They won't know.

Because of the FJ being popular, hotel guests can only use their fotl express key one time a day. To compensate (i think), they are giving resort guests 1 hr early entrance to the park. So, I'm guessing you either show your roomkey, or something they are going to give you for booking a package (if not staying onsite).

I would think not also.

Because of the menu and popularity....

All the places participating in MD seem to have same sort of menu offerings. I don't think burgers are an option at Three Brooms?

Sorry...I'm confused...what else is new!

We will be staying onsite, RPR. I did not book a package. I have annual passes and I have a room only reservation. Can I get into the park one hour early?

That is our situation also.

Book room only as we have APs.

(2 yrs ago they let AP holders in an hour early.)

Some are saying 1/2 hr, some say 1hr.

We don't go till mid July, so I will sit and wait n see what others say.

You would think the hotels would have their info straight?

Either way....even 1/2 hr is better than nothing.

Of course. All you have to show is your room key (electronic card).
plus the park ticket unless is already added to your card like in WDW.

Early Park Opening and Three Broomsticks Breakfast?

Question from a first timer here. We are going in August and booked on site with the HP package. We get 2 days in the parks (one park per day). Our package includes early admission to WWoHP and Three Broomsticks Breakfast. If normal park opening is at 9, do we get in at 8? I made 8:30 reservations for Three Broomsticks, incorrectly assuming we would get FOTLA for HP attractions. What is the right way to do this? I assume I should push the breakfast back to one of the later times so we can do WWoHP first, then Three Broomsticsk then the rest of IOA with FOTLA, right? Or am I way off base?

I think you will be able to get into the area at 8, and you'll have the chance to ride before your breakfast.
Other things people may want to know if you plan on going the 18th.

That's an interesting read (the link). Some good discussion points, and some ridiculous and almost condescending ones as well. Even the most cynical Debbie Downer is stretching to warn people about long lines. I was surprised there wasn't a section faulting the June 18th opening date by warning people that Florida has a tendency to be hot in the summer.

And implying that the changing price cost of the Express pass is "gouging" in the same theme park industry in which restaurants at Disney raise their prices "due to guest demand" on heavier traffic periods? That's a bit much.
