I booked my trip before the grand opening was announced satying on-site. Since I booked before, we don't have the WWOHP package. Would I have access 30 minutes prior to park opening on the day of the Grand Opening? Or is it just WWOHP package people who do?

Supposedly it's only for the people who booked the packages. But so many different things have been said it's hard to know anymore.

I bought our tickets in February but didn't get a hotel room until later. When I spoke to Guest Services yesterday they said IF I had booked my hotel by March 25th then I would have been entitled to a Preview of the WWOHP before the Grand Opening day. Also, Guest Services and the hotel reservations personnel said as a hotel guest my children and I will get in to the park an hour prior to park opening. I noticed on the brochure for the package (WWOHP) it does say half an hour before park opens.

From what they said it looks like you could get in to the WWOHP prior to June 18th for a preview. They also said the preview will allow you to walk about the WWOHP but there is no guarantee everything will be open and operational.

Hope this helps.

hmm .. if employee previews are finally being announced as starting, do you suppose any info about FJ will leak out? Well, more than we already know or confirm some of the speculation.

If you book a room only, do you still get the one hour early entry? I understood it to be that you get the one hour early entry on packages and 30 minutes on room only.

Guest Services and the hotel reservations personnel both told me that since we are on site guests we will be allowed in the park 1 hr early on the day of the Grand Opening. I did mention to them what I read in the fine print of the WWOHP brochure stating the package included entry 30 minutes early on the day of the Grand Opening. They were both surprised and again said we would have access 1 hr prior to the park opening.

I hope not...Universal has kept this secret and I hope it's kept quiet until opening day.
