    Hello everyone! I have some corrections to make- First, Express Pass has a few different tiers. Only the unlimited pass allows unlimited admission to all rides. The other passes allow only one time on each ride per day (to skip the regular line). Also, only the Portofino Bay, Hard Rock, and Royal Pacific Hotels offer free Express Passes. Also, as of now, all Express Passes can be used on all rides, including Harry Potter Rides. Sorry for the mistakes!

    Critter Keeper lockers are at the beginning of the queue and generally the ride exits in a somewhat close location to that area as well. They do adjust the free locker and times in accordance with the ride wait. The attraction attendants partner with the locker attendant who then extends the time.

  3. Critter Keeper

    Critter KeeperPřed 9 měsíci

    Do they extend the time lockers are free if the ride wait times are two or three hours? Or are you just screwed then? Or are the lockers near the end of the queue or something?

    I live in Los Angeles so I go to Universal Studios Hollywood and it’s amazing every time I go I have the most amazing time I’ve been on the studio tour and I meet Vin Diesel Well they were shooting scenes from fast and the furious I as well for filmmaking for modern family I saw all the actors and it’s so cool and amazing and it gives me hope for my acting career

    I made the mistake of missing the entrance to diagon alley on my first visit but I did eventually find it like 2 yrs later when I went back! Also I’m not sure if you mentioned but on a lot of rides , you must put all your personal belongings especially your phone in lockers near the attractions you pass metal detectors so you can’t be sneaky about it but lockers are free you just gotta remember the locker # after

    It would be hard to do everything in a day... in fact, it would be nearly impossible due to crowds. However, you could walk around both parks in a day with no problem.

    With the lockers if there directly for that ride like gring gotts if the wait time is longer than an hour they extend the amount of locker time you get because I went to Universal and they had to do this

  32. largol33t1

    largol33t1Před 2 měsíci

    I think on the forbidden journey, the lockers are the worst in the entire park because it's so dimly lit. I had to fumble around for the right locker and feel for the items because the lighting was Bad.

    No. 1 thing that you need to know, DO NOT go to the Universal Studios if you have a half day single park ticket(there are tons of conferences in Orlando for which it is useful and they sell tickets that are only valid from 4 pm onward when the conferences end), go to Islands of adventure only or buy a ticket for two parks.

  40. NIXX DIED2

    Ashlee DA it has its pros and cons, like any large city. for example, while my homecoming was at the hard rock cafe & house of blues, my high school also has almost 4000 students so my classes are large. my school is one of twenty high schools in my county and there are four counties in orlando.

    I just got back from here yesterday. I can't wait to go back. Maybe when I do, I won't have to wait almost 5 hours to ride Hagrid's Motorbike ride. It was worth the wait, but I wish I didn't have to wait that long. On the bright side, it wasn't 8 hours like when my cousins went.

    Oh you brought back lots of memories of childhood. My family visited it in 1993. My uncle was an international student in California, and we decided to go visit him. I was 10 years old and was blown away by the park and its attractions. Especially the back 2 futre ride!

    Vox RadioPřed 6 měsíci

    What he says about the express pass here: <a href="#" class="seekto" data-time="229">3:49</a> should have a little asterisk next to it. From my experience, single-rider lines generally have fewer people in them than express pass lanes. This is because of what he says here: <a href="#" class="seekto" data-time="247">4:07</a> Since fast passes can be used anywhere, anytime, and are unlimited, the express pass lanes become much longer. If you happen to go alone then you can save a few bucks by just going through the single riders line. However, you are most likely going as a group, either friends or family. If you don't mind not sitting next to someone you know, and everyone waiting at the exit for everyone to get off, then the single riders line is a great option.

    You can tell when it's going to happen if you want to catch it and take a picture. It makes a loud gurgling sound just a second or two before it actually spits out the flames. If you want a photo op, do it in the morning or EARLY afternoon. If you wait til night, there's a risk: it could run out of fuel! It happened when I was there. It was 6 pm on a Wednesday and I heard the familiar gurgling sound but nothing came out!

    D & M ShelskPřed 6 měsíci

    They have a LOT for kids. Be sure to check the minimum height requirements, though. Some rides you'll have to ride with her depending on her height. She'll have a blast in any of these areas: Seuss Landing. - Dr. Seuss themed area with a carousel ride, Cat in the Hat ride, and a really great Sneeches elevated train ride (by "train" I mean a tame "roller coaster" type ride that doesn't spin, drop, or anything) ; Camp Jurassic Park - prehistoric play area, climbing, etc. and has a Pteradon Flyers ride that is kids-only, but must be over 36 inches tall and under 60" (adults can ride with their kid, but they wont let you on unless you're accompanying a child) Hogsmeade - the train between parks is for all ages (must have a 2-park hopper ticket) and the Flight of the Hippogriff roller coaster is ok for kids too. Kidzone is for kids and has a great Woody Woodpecker kid-sized roller coaster plus Barney show and meet & greets with Barney, B.J., & Baby Bop E.T. Adventure; Toon Lagoon. Great Curious George water fun area with a ball-pit too Simpsons rides, all very kid-friendly. The Twirl & Hurl is just like Disney's Dumbo ride where kids can make the car go up and down. Shrek 4-D & Despicable Me Minion Mayhem : both good for kids. Plus there are characters all over to take a photo with and parades and shows (Animal Actors show is great for kids) I also recommend you don't miss the Studio Tour
