IOA...First time this Sunday Oct. 7th . Crowds? Tips?

My brother and family are taking my nephew to IOA for his birthday this Sunday. I'm sorry to ask, but he wants to know if they should get Express Passes? They are $45 for Sunday...he would just get them for him and my nephew, my SIL doesn't do rides really and my niece is only four, so mostly just doing Suess Landing. I just don't know enough about Universal to know what to tell him and I hate for them to waste $90 if not necessary.

You should always wait until you arrive to see what the wait times are before spending the money for EPs. They can be purchased throughout the park.

Might be some crowds on Sunday, never know.

All the day tours are sold out that day.

Most on this board recommend waiting since the EP are PARK SPECIFIC,DATE SPECIFIC and NONREFUNDABLE..That said, It is Columbus Day weekend and it might be crowded

We were there last Sunday and I was expecting less crowds. Like mentioned - wait till you arrive check out the wait times then decide on express.

Have a great time!
