Early Admission: Despicable Me or Transformers?

I have one early admission day to go to Universal Studios. In what order should I do Despicable Me and Transformers?

We got to EE this morning at 8:30 and walked right on TF. Just to let everyone know that Shrek, DM, RRR, and TF were all open. I would not guarantee this to be the norm though.

Thanks folks for all the insight!

Another question: is there a separate line for the fire and ice coasters from Harry Potter, or is it one big line to get into the area?

It starts off as one big line, once you get near the ride itself it splits into 2 different lines

OK, just to clarify:

I'd like to ride the coasters via express pass: do I have to wait at all on the Harry Potter line or do I just waltz right in?

Steve.

No early opening last week... Is that common? We are paying to stay onsite to have that perk...

Do they have early opening this week?

IOA has early entry all the time..The Studios DOES NOT..It is only going on from JULY 1st- SEPT 2nd due to the opening of Transformers.They did the same thing LAST summer for Despicable ME and will likely do it again next year for the Harry Potter Expansion
