Select Universal Studios Orlando Resorts Offer Universal Express Unlimited Pass!

Unlimited Express Pass

The Universal Orlando Resort has some incredible on-site hotel options. They range in theming, pricing and amenities offered. When it’s time to book my client’s vacations, however, I always start with the three legacy hotels. Hard Rock Hotel, Loews Portofino Bay and Loews Royal Pacific offer something that the other Universal Orlando hotels do not: the Universal Express Unlimited Pass.

Think of the Express Pass as a way to jump the line on nearly all attractions in both Universal Studios Florida and Universal’s Islands of Adventures. Rides and shows that offer the Express Pass will have a separate queue for you to enter. Flash your Express Pass and walk past all of the park guests waiting in the standby line. And before you ask, the Express Pass is valid in the Wizarding World on rides like Harry Potter and the Forbidden Journey and Escape from Gringotts!

The three legacy hotels are different in personality, so you should easily be able to find one that appeals to you.

Loews Portofino Bay – Just like it’s namesake in Italy, this resort makes you feel like you are on the streets of Europe! Quaint cobblestone streets, live music and gelato welcome you home at Loews Porotfino Bay.

Hard Rock Hotel – The good times never end at this hip resort. To channel your inner celebrity, book the Future Rock Star Suite! You can even have your room card cut into a guitar pick here!

Loews Royal Pacific – This resort typically prices lower than the other two, so it is a good option for families on a budget. Indulge in an island vacation without flying around the world! There’s a lagoon and sandy white beach to relax in after a long day of theme park fun.

If you book your stay at one of these three hotels, the express pass will be given to you at check-in with your room key. I find that wearing a lanyard is the most convenient way to carry your express pass so that you don’t have to keep getting it out of your wallet or purse at each attraction.

The Universal Express Unlimited Pass gives you the ability to see and do more during your time at Universal Studios Florida and Universal’s Islands of Adventure! Are you ready to book your trip today?
