My son and daughter have been patiently waiting for my son to reach the age of 21 so that they can go to HHN and enjoy some liquid refreshments. My son is 21 in December this year so I have started to plan a trip for September 2019. My plan is stay at the Hard Rock from 17 to 24 September 2019. For the time being I have booked a Club room directly with the hotel for USD 2559.33. 3 park unlimited tickets sell on the UK site for £254 each (we are in the UK) so USD 990 for 3 adults. The total cost of the hotel and tickets is USD 3549.33. This is cheaper than booking a vacation package directly on Universal’s US site by about £100.
The HHN tickets for 2019 are not available yet (obviously) but if I use the price of the vacation package this year as a guide, the HHN vacation package from Universal comes to about USD 5422 of which the HHN ticket and express pass element is about USD899.97.
So if I buy the HHN tickets and express pass separately when they are released, I am looking at a total price of about USD4,449.30, so almost USD 1000 cheaper than the Universal Vacation package.
This sounds too good to be true…am I missing something obvious here?
Is there a ‘best time’ to book for this event?
