Question Will Cabana Bay have unlimited express pass?

I'm here now and it's paradise at the RPR! Our car service driver told us that the new hotel will have unlimited express. I know it's like trusting info from the Disney bus drivers but is this true?

No, it will just have early admission.

I think that's the right call. Pay more, get more.

I wish Disney did this.

If Disney had express for their moderate to deluxe hotels I would consider staying onsite when visiting Disney. To me Disney offers no real benefit for us to stay onsite. We end up staying at RPR and drive down to Disney when we want to go which is not to often. We like Disney but love Universal. The problem with Disney is its so big and spread out that you can't just zip around to the other parks. This is where Universal wins in relaxation and convenient.

Even though it is spelled out pretty clearly that resort guest express pass is not a perk at Cabana Bay, I am wondering how many people will book it only to find out it doesn't and get mad.

Oh, I'm sure it will happen. They really are trying to make it clear though. Even on the hotels page on the universalorlando site it says:

Make the most of your vacation. Stay in the heart of the excitement at any of our on-site hotels, including our newest hotel scheduled to open in 2014, Universal's Cabana Bay Beach Resort, and enjoy EXCLUSIVE theme park benefits.

Choose one of our DELUXE on-site hotels and enjoy:
FREE Universal ExpressSM ride access* to skip the regular lines in both theme parks all day - a value of up to $89 per person, per day** (valid theme park admission required).

Or, stay at ANY of our on-site hotels and enjoy:
Early Park Admission^ to The Wizarding World of Harry PotterTM, one hour before the theme park opens (valid theme park admission required).
