My famiy is staying at Disney the week of April 4-10, and we are planning to do that Thursday, the 8th, at Universal. I’ve already bought the two-park tickets, but am getting super nervous about crowd levels and wait times since that is Spring Break. We mainly want to experience all of the Harry Potter stuff for my 10-year-old, but my 5-year-old really wants to do the Seuss and super hero stuff, too. No giant roller coasters for us, but I do want to have time to do everything we want to do, and I’m nervous this crazy wait times will make that hard. With Express passes being around $1,000 for a family of four for that day, I’m debating getting a room at the HRH just to get the express passes for around $675. My questions are:
has anyone done this before that can give their opinion?
which night should I book? the night before or night of the day we plan to go to Universal? I’m concerned about being to check-in in time on Thursday to get whatever we need for our express passes and early entry that day.
Any tips or recommendations would be greatly appreciated! This is our first time to Universal, so we’re newbies!
