We just got back from Disney and found that forum extremely helpful. We are now in the process of planning a surprise birthday trip for my 9 year old son and it’s so overwhelming because I haven’t been to universal since I was a kid!
So here’s the facts:
- going from Sunday, August 9 through Wednesday, August 12.
- leaving my littles with grandma so it’s just my husband, myself, and son (won’t turn 10 until the end of August)
- we want the express passes that can be used over and over
- we intended on only doing two days at the park, but I’m seeing deals where you get extra days tossed in so we might check out a park on Sunday night or Wednesday before we fly out
Currently looking at staying at a premiere resort for the fast passes. Three nights.
Currently looking at booking the buy two get two free deal that’s going on.
Wondering if we should look into annual passes? We would NOT be going back but I read you can get a room discount and seems like that would be helpful but I can’t seem to find how that works. Do you buy the pass and then book the room?
We do NOT have any interest in the water park and will not have a car or need to worry about parking. Any tips or things we might be overlooking? Thanks for helping us get started!
