Early admission

Is early admission just for IOA or is it for both parks?

Just IOA right now. There is some speculation that onsite guests will be able to have early entry into the Studios once Transformers opens but nothing has been announced.

We just booked a package at the Best Western partner hotel for Aug. 16-19 and were told that we would have early entry to both parks.

Did someone at the hotel tell you that you would get early admission? I was looking online about the partner hotels but from what I saw the early admission isn't available with the partner hotels.

Early entry to the Studios is for Transformers and only valid July 1st through September 2nd...you will be able to ride Transformers...maybe one additional attraction but the rest of the park will not be available until normal opening hours.

Thanks for the information. Leaving our timeshare now to head to the RPH. Then it's off to the parks. Fingers crossed that the weather isn't too bad

We booked through a ta so it probably is through Universal itself. We will be there Aug. 16-19 so we fall within the dates Metro quoted. It does specify that ee is for Transformers and HP.

Early July, IOA opens at 8:00. That makes early entry at 7:00. Getting there by 6:45 is going to feel like a workday! But with fun.
