Going to Universal in August for 2 days and while searching the boards I came across this. Already have an offsite hotel booked for 3 nights. Thinking this could be an option for our group of 5. I just checked on adding Unlimited Express for our 2 days and for 5 people it would be $1490. Booking 1 night would save us over $1000. We weren't planning on getting the Unlimited Express but knowing this information and seeing that we are going on a weekend in August, it just makes sense. Just have to convince my SIL. I'm going with my 17 year old son , BIL, SIL and nephew. I read about the checking in but was wondering about checking out. Do you need to be at the hotel to actually check out? I haven't been to Universal in over 10 years but stayed onsite and loved the Unlimited Express. Thanks!!
