There are 4 adults and 2 kids. We will each have an overnight bag. Can we get to the Loews hotel really early in the AM and check our bag at the front desk, get our tickets then take their transportation to the park for early Harry Potter entrance?

What are our best transportation options? Would Mears do a really early drop on one day and a late pickup on the next day (with luggage)?

yes, you can check in anytime.
you can check in at 6 in the morning, get your hotel keys and have your belongings stored with valet.

it is not uncommom to go that route.

if you take the mears shuttle from disney, i don't think they leave that early.
best to take a taxi early morning.


you can't take any luggage on the mears shuttle from disney to universal.


if you ordered your tickets in advance, you can use the kiosk at the hotel to retrieve your park tickets.

if you need to buy them, guest services outside the park will be open sometime prior to the park opening.

Thanks for your interest in Dreams Unlimited Travel.
The Universal 2 day/2 park ticket does include two days of transportation to and from Universal Studios/Islands of Adventure. The days do not have to be consecutive, but the second day must be used within 14 days of the first day of use.

Hope this helps others as well
Thank you for the info!!!

Dreams Unlimited web site problems???

I've been trying to buy the 1 day/2 park with transportation from Dreams Unlimited, but their web site has been down for at least 5 days.
Is anyone else having this problem?
I want to go to Universal (Harry Potter) on 8/14 and it's coming up quickly.
Any advice???

Unfortunately I got the error message "Our Ticket Store is currently closed for maintainence. Please check back in a few days. We appologize for the inconvenience." ... maybe you can send an email to them at Reservations@dreamsunlimitedtravel.com

Everytime I enter that email address (I'm at work) a windows error comes up and says "windows can't find the address, check your spelling". Did anyone else have this problem?

I will try calling as well because I want to order my tickets. Do they mail the tickets to your home or are they electronic??

Thanks for you help.

I have never had a problem contacting DU.

I checked my saved email and found my receipt for our upcoming trip. There is a voucher that they emailed me that I am to give Mears when they pick us up *** calling them at least 24 hours prior *** At US, at the electronic kiosk, I can pick up our tickets by swiping the card that I used to pay for the tickets.... hope this helps.

Can anyone confirm that you can get into the parks early by doing the DU/Mears combo ticket?

Also, I called the number and she couldn't help me (because she was in another state) other than sending them an e:mail saying I had sent them an e:mail earlier in the week and still needed help. I haven't heard from them yet.

No. One of the representatives responded to a post saying that this was not the case that you can get in early. It may have happened to a few guests but it was not supposed to be the norm.

So you can take a shuttle from POP to US/IOA for 18.00 a person round trip?! Also, do you know who I would call to sit up the shuttle and do you know how often they run to take you back?
