Universal Studios Informative - No more skipping the lines
ORLANDO, FLORIDA -- Those been to Disney World and Universal Studio are aware of the Universal Express Pass and Disney Fast pass service. These services allow you to bypass the standard standby lines for popular rides.
It cut down the wait time for most popular rides down to minutes.
It looks like Universal Studio Orlando is making this an add-on service to their standard theme park tickets.
You will have to pay (per-day/per-ticket) to access the Universal Express Pass service, unless you stay in one of their themed deluxe resorts.
Disney is currently offering golden Disney Fast passes to anyone who endures their one-hour Disney Vacation club (Time-Share) sales pitch. It gives you unlimited access to all Disney Fast pass rides without time restrictions between different rides.
You can also trade up the golden Disney Fast passes for food vouchers, good for $15-20 off all Disney restaurants in the resorts, theme park, and/or downtown Disney.
On the plus side, Universal is building Harry Potter land and replacing the aging Back-To-The-Future ride with the Simpson ride (inspired by the Simpson Movie). Harry Potter land is schedule to be open late 2009. The Simpson ride is schedule to be open next summer 2008.
