Vote of the week: What's the best perk for staying at an on-site theme park hotel?

Part of the reason why we chose to stay at Hotel Breakers when we visited Cedar Point last weekend was the opportunity to get into the park one hour early, to get a jump on the lines for some of the park's top roller coasters.
We'll be staying at the Royal Pacific Resort at Universal Orlando when we get in Orlando in a couple weeks, where we'll get front-of-the-line access to (almost) all of the Universal attractions while we're there.
If we were staying on-site at Walt Disney World a little bit later in August, we could have gotten free dining at the Disney parks and hotels during the visit.
Which brings me to this week's vote on Theme Park Insider: Which perk would you prefer with an on-site stay at a theme park's hotel? Early access for just the hotel guests, front of the lines access to the park's rides, or free dining at the park and hotel restaurants?
I'd love to hear your personal experience with any of these perks, and whether or not you feel that they're worth the extra price of staying at an "on property" hotel.
