Perks for Universal hotel guests?Universal Orlando: Has anyone stayed on Universal property now that WWoHP is officially open? If so, what benefits can hotel guests enjoy?
From Melissa DonahueNow that WWoHP has officially opened, I am very interested to hear about the overall experience from any Universal hotel guests. My husband & I head down next week and are staying on property, so any WWoHP information for hotel guests would be really appreciated.

Besides the one-hour early entrance, I'm wondering what Universal is doing for its hotel guests. Please let me know what we need to be on the lookout for once we arrive. Thanks!

From Hermione PotterI'm not staying in a Universal Hotel but I have friends that did this past weekend and it was just the early entry and of course the room keys work as express passes on every ride except Forbidden Journey, Pteranadon Flyers, and Rip, Ride, Rockit.

It does not express you into Wizarding World if there is a line to enter the land itself, just onto dragon challenge and hippogriff once you're in.
From Melissa DonahueThanks, Hermione, for the information! So basically, if we're not in line for WWoHP during early entrance, then we might as well forget about entering later in the day unless we want to wait for several hours with all of the non-hotel guests, right? I wonder if that early entrance has been absolutely mobbed this week...

From April CMelissa, I heard that as time wore on, it was less busy. (Like during the day)

From Hermione PotterI was there yesterday afternoon and people were walking straight into Wizarding World, but heard that in the mornings it can be a short wait just because of the initial rush. I think it will probably be like this through the next week or so leading up to 4th of July, when of course the whole resort will be a madhouse again.
