I'm pretty sure the only time you would early admission staying onsite would be around very busy periods and with the exception of Thanksgiving weekend, November hasn't been very busy in the past. In fact...the only time I've ever heard of onsite guests getting early entry was in the summer. Now keep in mind...I live 20 minutes away from the parks and don't stay onsite so I'm relying on what others have said.

How do park tickets work for hotel guests? Does the hotel stay already include park tickets or do you purchase them separately?

sometimes there are packages...but it's usually cheaper to book room & buy tickets separately.

How does the show FOTL access work? Do we have to get to the show early to recieve priority seating before anyone else is let in, or can we show up after seating is started and get special seats. Any help would be much appreciated!

I was under the impression that the early entry at IOA was basically for Harry Potter & would continue regardless of season. I believe that the Harry Potter package also allows for early entry, so as long as that package is offered, shouldn't early entry be happening all of the time, at least at IOA?

I just want to make sure that what I have planned & paid for isn't a waste.

Thanks!

The early entry is most likely going to last for awhile for Harry Potter. In the past early entry was seasonal but with the HP packages still being offered, then the early entry will continue.

We went to WWHOP/Universal/Islands on 7/22(thursday) and 7/25(sunday) without the FOTL and just went to WWHOP an hour earlier than the park opened. We went right into WWHOP and maybe stood in line for FJ for 30 minutes each day. We did not have long waits either day and am glad that we did not pay the extra money for FOTL!

If I have an on-site reservation for 3 people and wish to pick up room keys very early in the morning before check-in is ready to benefit from the FOTL perk, would each member of my party need to be present at the desk or could I pick up all three room keys while their preparing for check out from our current off-site stay?
