    Universal studios hollywood

    It looks like if you buy date specific tickets you can get into Wizarding World an hour early even if you are staying off-site. I can't find if they sell an express pass like they do at Universal Orlando. https://www.universalstudioshollywood.com/faqs/what-are-the-ticket-prices/

    Oh, misread that. I haven't been out there since 1990 lol, but I think it would be worth 1 day to go there while you are out there anyway. Their HP Land is just like the one down in Orlando. If you are a big HP fan I would say that alone is worth the price of admission. I don't know if they have on-site hotels there that would give you FOTL, which is huge in Orlando, can pretty much do all rides with that feature.

    The Harry Potter lands are a must do. They did such a great job with theming and then they have the train that connects both lands which is an attraction itself (you will need a park hopper to do Hogwarts Express). I do like Universal but I have a hard time doing a lot of the rides since they are simulators and I'm prone to motion sickness. Having said that I have no issues on Forbidden Journey or Gringotts. I'd say just do 2 days with park hopper so you can do Hogwarts Express and stay on site so you get front of the line. Although Harry Potter does not offer front of the line, but you can get into the parks an hour earlier than off-site guests, so that is when I would say you should do HP. If you have teens and pre-teens they will love Universal as they have more thrill rides there than WDW.

    Replacing Photopass Photographers???

    I think Flounder hit the nail on the head here. Right now you can ask the photo pass person to take your picture with your own for free, now with this box thing if you want the picture you have to buy it.

    I think there are already people who have been priced out. There are rumors that once SWL opens the tickets to get into HS will be close to $200 with this new ticket pricing they just put out. Until the majority of people stop going, the prices will just keep getting higher and higher.

  12. For resort, I save by always getting the discount code they offer which is usually around 30% for the time of year we usually go.

    Happy Birthday Miz Fiz!

    Happy birthday Miz! Hope it's magical!
  14. Also getting tickets that are 1 park per day, park hoppers do add a lot to your ticket. Having said that, we always do park hoppers lol.
  15. We bring a brita water bottle and just refill it all day long to avoid paying for water. You can ask any kiosk to fill it for you and they will When we do counter service we tend to split a lot of meals to save money that way, a lot of the quick service meals are pretty big so easy to split. I also have a Disney Visa card which I will use to rack up points. (always pay it off, don't want credit card debt ) Last trip in May I had $1200 since I missed out on the SSS trip due to Irma, it was a year and a half of getting points, was certainly more than I had ever racked up. That paid for all our food and we even got a shirt each.

    POR early August

    I fried my laptop right before I left for my trip in May, but streamed from my ipad. I just propped it up on a chair and laid it against the balcony fence to stream. So if you have a balcony you may be able to do something like that. I only streamed with the ipad when we were in the room, never left it while we went into the parks. You could also prop it up against a window if no balcony.
