Is the hotel photo ID Express Pass still an unlimited Express Pass or are you now limited to once per ride?

Thanks!

It is unlimited but can't be used on Forbidden Journey, Rip Ride Rockit or Pterandon Flyers.

Here's my question, we are going to Orlando for WDW & a Disney Cruise in June. The cruise returns a day before we fly out at 7:30am, and we fly out the next day at 5:30pm. If we stay on-site at UO for one day and get a 2 day ticket, can we use the Express Unlimited and use the early entrance for both days. Of course, the early entrance wouldn't apply for the 1st day, but can we use it for the 2nd day??

If checking in for one night at the hard rock, will you be able to use your ID express line card for two days worth? Meaning the day you check in and the day after? Or is it only valid for the one night you are staying at the resort?

We are staying for one night the last week of March 2 adults 2 teenagers. We will be checking in early on the first day to use our EP's and my niece (2nd teenager) will be getting dropped of around noon. I thought we could get her a key/EP when we checked in around 8am. I just read about the photo EP's, will we have to go back to the hotel to get her a photo EP? It's been I few years since we have been to Universal. Any help would be appreciated... Thanks.

AFAIK..Yes you will have to go back to the hotel.ALL the resort guest express passes now are photo passes.Everyone must have one in your party.They did away with the room keys because people were absuing the system by selling them/giving them to non-resort guests.So now the passes have photos on them and the TMs check to make sure the person using the pass is the person on the photo

it sounds like the 2nd teen is on your reservation but arriving after you check in.

if you can check her in with the rest of the family, and receive her hotel room key, she can have the express pass made at guest services.


since you are going during a busy time period, i do not know if the hotel will require to physically see the late arriving teen at check in.



you could call the hotel direct and ask if you can check her in and receive her room key in advance.

when an onsite hotel guest loses their express pass w/ picture, they can go to guest services in the park to replace it.


the TM has to cancel the lost express pass first.
then a new one will be made for the hotel guest.

there are kiosks located in guest services for this procedure.

Thanks for the replies... I called today and explained that she would be arriving late. I wish she was getting there at the same time it would be much easier but anyway... I was told everyone on the reservation will get a room key at check in and then we can go over to the kiosk in the lobby and get our photo EP's printed up. When my niece arrives we will have to go back to the lobby to get hers. I will try guest services, it would be much easier. 1 more week.

The Forbidden Journey and the Pterondon Flyers are the only rides that do not accept ep. The Ollivanders wand show in the WWoHP also does not do ep.

You will love ep- it will make you wonder how you ever did a theme park without one!

early entry and ticket purchases

I know this has to be addressed somewhere, but can't find it...

Can you buy your tickets at Costco and still use the benefits of the hotel express pass (whatever it is called)?

Thanks!!
