Liner Daily Tip #32 – UOR Locker Map – Posted 11/20/13
Many of the thrill rides at UOR require you to stash your stuff in a locker before riding. These lockers are free for the duration of your ride. Here’s a handy map with locker locations and information https://maps.google.com/maps/ms?msid=210898806934650636860.0004c7f2bee589875dce5&msa=0&ll=28.47419,-81.470022&spn=0.015014,0.01929

Liner Daily Tip #33 – UOR Express Pass – Posted 11/21/13
Express Pass (UOR’s version of FP) can be rather pricey, but you get unlimited XP for free if you stay at a UOR resort, so a split-stay between WDW and UOR might save you some money. Also, you get XP for both check-in and check-out days, so you get two days of XP for one night’s stay.

Liner Daily Tip #34 – WWoHP Early Entry – Posted 11/22/13
WWoHP has 1-hour early entry every day for guests at UOR resorts. However, if you get the tickets with transfer from Dreams Unlimited you may also get early entry http://www.dreamsunlimitedtravel.com/universal/. Note that this is an unadvertised benefit, so there are no guarantees that you will get early entry. However, this has worked for many Liners.

EDIT: This is believed to no longer work. The last report I have seen of it working was 01/17/14, and I saw a report that it did not work in August 2014. However, back when it was working there were occasional reports of it not working for certain individuals, so YMMV.
