    Total newbie to Universal and want to go to WWoHP next week. We need to buy tickets the morning we attend. Does the ticket window open before the park actually opens? Also, is there some way to find out the opening time? The website says hours subject to change. We want to do WWoHP first thing and are not staying on site so want to be there the earliest possible time. Thank you for any help.

    I think your best strategy would be to purchase the tickets online through the Universal website and choose the electronic pickup option at the Will Call kiosk. This will save lots of time by not having to stand in the ticket lines. All you would need to get the tickets is the confirmation number and the credit card used for the transaction. Your tickets will print out right there and you can go straight to the gate. It's easy and fast.

    To answer your question...the ticket windows open 30 minutes prior to park opening. The park hours usually only change for when the parks close but if the crowds are big enough in the mornings, they will sometimes open at 8:30am instead of 9am.

    Thank you for the prompt reply. It is too late for me to order tickets online as we are on our way to Florida now. So do you think if I just get there earlier than the opening of the ticket booth, I might be ok? Can't wait to come and I thank you for all the info on this site.

    parking lots open one hour prior to park opening.


    it takes 24 hours from the time you purchase your tickets online to the time you can pick them up at the kiosk.

    Ticket windows open 30 minutes before park opening. If there is an early admission opening, they will open 30 minutes before early admission.
