My husband and I are taking our first trip to Universal next week and I have questions! I’m planning on using the 2 Day 2 park Plan with Early Entry.
First I must have my morning coffee! We are staying at Endless Summer, and I was hoping I could stop at Starbucks first thing in the morning and bring my drink with me as we head to the park. So my questions are, am I allowed to bring coffee #1 on the shuttle bus, and #2 into the park with me?
To continue the shuttle question, if I’m reading correctly the buses start running one hour before park opening. Does this take early entry into account? I believe we have EE at IOA only, beginning at 8:00. So will the buses start at 7:00?
Since we are UOR newbies, I want to follow the touring plans. However, there are things we will want to skip like water rides (I do NOT like getting wet) and kiddie rides. Will skipping things mess up the plan, meaning put us somewhere at an inopportune time? We WILL have Express Passes.
Oh and a specific IOA question…if I’m reading the 2 Park/2 Day plan correctly, it has us getting several rides on Hagrids. First on Day 1, part 2, by checking for Virtual Line recommendations that morning and getting a return time around sunset, which I am assuming is used when Hagrids shows up as #13 on the plan. Next, it is the first ride we will head to following the plan on Day 2 with EE, but it also instructs to schedule a virtual line reservation for it with a return time around midday–but I don’t see it again as a line item on the plan anywhere? Do you just squeeze it in wherever you can schedule a time before heading to USF for the latter part of the plan? And with a potential 3 rides on Hagrids, is it still best to do this as #1 on Day 2 instead of Velocicoaster (which is #2 on the plan?)
Looking forward to our trip and I appreciate any advice!
