    you can also ask the TM that rings up your purchase the approximate time you need before pick up will be available.
    they will be aware when the next pick up will be.


    runners go to the stores and pick up all the bagged purchases and take it to the front merch store.


    like metro west stated, if the park is crowded, give it a couple of hours.

    I will make sure to ask as I know it will be busy at the end of June. A related question, can you buy all of the same things at the front store that you can buy throughout the rest of the park or are there special ride-related souvenirs you can only get at the "ride exit" store (like at Disney)?? I would love to leave all of the purchasing until we are leaving the park if I can.

    you will find a selection of parry hotter items at the main merch store.
    it won't be as great as what you find in the ph section though.

    but, with not knowing what you plan to buy, i don't know how to answer your question.


    i know the pins that are at ph area will also be in the front store.



    maybe the TM's in the parry hotter area would be able to have that knowledge.

    Thanks for the info. I have no idea what we will be buying yet. Would love to say very little, but I know that is not how it will play out.;)

    Question and I apoligize if this has already been covered, but can you wear a fannypack on any of the rides? I know bags have to be placed in lockers but was just looking for another option.

    Yes, as long as it has a three prong clip and is relatively small (no water bottles attatched), it will be fine.

    We were at Universal in early June and it seemed like we were able to use our AAA discount on food purchases under $50 at most of the counter service restaurants in the parks. We couldn't use it for merchandise purchases that were under $50. I was also able to get a AAA discount when my daughter got her hair "wrapped" at one of the little booths in the park. The worker mentioned that they recently changed the policy on the AAA discount but after the second attempt the discount went through (it was under $50).

    My advice would be to ask at each location.

    Hi all,
    I'm a newbie when it comes to Universal. I was looking online and can't figure out how to add on the express ticket option for early 2014 - are those not on sale yet?

    Most likely they aren't available yet. And you don't need to buy it in advance. Our advice here is usually to wait until you get inside the parks and see if you'll really need it. It can be purchased in many locations INSIDE both parks. It is a shame to buy it and then find out that the lines are pretty short.

    So I am planning to hit Universal with my kids for the first time. It will be me, an 8 year old and a 4 year old. Are there rides that the 3 of us can do together?

    check out www.universalorlando.com for what is in the parks.

    you will read info about each ride and any restrictions.


    i find that the UO website is very helpful for newbies.

    there also sections on the site for rides children will enjoy.

    You can upgrade those tickets at guest services if you want.

    the first post was last updated in 2010 - how current are the answers? Should this still be a sticky? is there a better thread to use?

    Thanks!
