|UNIVERSAL STUDIOS THEME PARK|
- Wake up early and be at the park at least 30 minutes prior to opening.
- Universal Studios Hollywood has a few attractions and areas (Super Silly Fun Land and Jurassic World – The Ride) have a habit of soaking you to the bone. For this reason, we suggest that you consider bringing a change of clothes, or at least a pair of dry socks for everyone, with you to the park.
- In the early morning, hit all your “must see” attractions before the crowds come. Then hit the shows and less crowded attractions that are on your to-do list. When the lines dwindle in the evening, revisit your favorite rides again.
- Super Nintendo World is brand new and will be the most popular section of the park. Many guests will purchase 30 minute early access to the park (this is free to guests who have booked a package with a Universal Partner Hotel) to take in all of Super Nintendo World and a few other popular attractions, like Harry Potter and the Forbidden Journey™ or Jurassic World – The Ride.
- Universal offers a “skip the line” system called Universal Express. You will receive a pass that allows each passholder to skip the lines once at all participating attractions. Each pass is valid for one person, and for one admission to each participating attraction. You can expect an up-to-15-minute wait to in any line for an attraction that offers Express Pass access. Universal Express currently excludes Mario Kart™: Bowser’s Challenge.
