2 days for the 2 parks?

We will be staying onsite at HRH so will have the express pass. Will 2 days be sufficient to tour both IOA and US thoroughly? We are HP fans and plan to take advantage of the early entry for onsite guests. iOA seems to have more rides than US. Is it true? Can we do iOA in a day or will we need more time? Is there early entry at US?

Unless you're going during absolute peak season, one park per day with Unlimited Express pass (included with your HRH stay) should be enough.

I believe only WWoHP consistently has early entry, but I may have that wrong.

Yes, there is early admission at US. Right now I believe that Despicable Me and Rip Ride Rockit are the early admission rides.

Yeah, I guess they've tinkered with the EE stuff a bit since I last went.

It could be changed by now, but that was the way it was the last time anyone reported back. I'm not seeing it on any of the Universal Orlando site pages, though.

we took advantage of EE. by looking the pic, we were first in line at the gate, sun wasn't up yet. lot's of sleepyheads still in their rooms. we went over to WWOHP and were first in line at FJ and then our son was lucky enough to be chosen by the wand and then had breakfast at three broomsticks. definately take advantage of the EE.
