Can someone explain to me what park to park means? Is that like park hopper in Disney language?

Also, if you buy these tickets and book a room at an "onsite" hotel, do you still get FOL access?

Yes, to both of those questions.

Anyone who stays at an onsite hotel, no matter where they get their tickets or do their booking, gets early park admission and unlimited express line access for the day they check in and the day they check out.

I wonder if this varies by state? I'm in VA and on the big piece of cardboard you pay for to swap for the tickets it specifically says no additional sales tax and I paid for them separately from my other purchases and there was no sales tax. Great deal and that no tax makes a big cost difference.

Undercover tourist does not have the three day non-expiring ticket that Costco carries. It is a Costco exclusive.

Just keep phoning around. Hopefully this hasn't been discontinued!

I bought mine in Aug, but as of last week, our Costco in Charlotte, NC still had them available.

I just saw them at my local Costco in Winchester, VA a few days ago. I bought mine last year and used 1 day. We're using the 2nd day tomorrow!

Is CostCo a membership thing like Sam's Club?

Yes very similar. They each have their pros and cons. I have a membership at both.

Similar. I had membership to both for a while, but we let our Sam's club membership lapse as we much prefer Costco. The quality of the food is better IMO. Sam's feels like a giant Walmart to me.

I called Winchester yesterday and they said 'they' pulled them. (I am in Warrenton). Hi neighbor!!
I have a feeling that as of Nov 1, Universal has stopped that offer! Just our luck. DH and I have 1 day left on ours (bought 3 years ago) and we need 2 more for the DD and her boyfriend for our late Nov trip. We were waiting for our rebate from when we had the new furnace installed through Costco. That just came in the mail on Friday.
I even called Costco in Jacksonville FL, as we will be there for a few days before our Disney vacation. We are driving on Thanksgiving day, so calling the one's on the way would do no good. Oh well....we may just have to bite the bullett and pay full price for them....even AAA and tickets through work are not that much of a discount.

Have fun....wish I were there now!!!

It may be that they are coming out with new ones that expire in 2016 instead of 2015, since we are almost at the end of 2012.

You could send guest services an email and see if they know anything about them.
