Last minute question about an upcoming trip

Our first family vacation to Universal Orlando is quickly approaching :grinning: and I wanted to check to make sure I’m not forgetting anything.

I have the room booked, tickets purchased, some dining reservations, and a basic outline of a touring plan. What am I forgetting?

Also, I’m not sure what time we should arrive at the bus stop to RD the parks. USF opens at 9:00 and IOA has a 8:00 EPA? We’re staying at Endless Summer.

And can I get actual tickets at my resort? I just have digital ones and think it would be easier if everyone had their own ticket.

Thanks for any advice.

Do you have the UOR app? check that, I see you have digital tickets
Are you familiar with the locker system at certain attractions?

The buses will be running 60 minutes before park open/EPA time.

Yes, just head to a kiosk or the planning desk. I agree they are still handy for the lockers, etc


Buy lanyards for everyone to put their tickets in, especially if you’re thinking of getting Express Passes.


I second getting lanyards. We were a longtime Disney family and didn’t think we needed them. We were wrong and bought them at the Surfside.

Thank you for all the responses!
I bought the lanyards yesterday :slight_smile:

I have another question. When making my initial plans I highlighted several rides:

Harry Potter and the Forbidden Journey
The Amazing Adventures of Spiderman
Escape From Gringotts
Despicable Me
Race through New York
The Simpson Ride

BUT I cannot remember why I highlighted them?

Are those rides with lockers, rides with 3D glasses, rides that could potentially make us queasy? Can anyone help me?

Thanks again.

I’m sure it’s because of the motion sickness potential.

FJ and Simpsons definitely are the highest risk.
