I wonder if they are doing away with the early entry before 6ish due to offering the 2pm ticket offering. That has helped me get in the park, grab some food and head down to the lower lot.

The website implies that early entry will still be offered, but I imagine that you will still gain an advantage/more time in the park with the 2PM ticket.

Saw that Eli Roth has taken over the terror tram. I'm going to be severely disappointed if it's the same terror tram albeit new costumes. Really hoping they're making it a fresh experience this year!

^The terror tram is the same every year, I wouldn't get your hopes up too much.

Did the donkey fairy give me this title?

Got my tickets for my first HHN, pretty excited. Also, this will also be my first trip to a Universal Studios park in general. I'll be there on a Thursday, are Thursdays usually less busy then Fridays and Saturdays? Also got the after 2pm combo ticket.

Thanks for any info or tips ahead of time!

Why do I still have a donkey title???

Ok, USH experts, what is the recommended order of attach for USH? Potter first, or still the tram first?

Purchase your tickets online and you will have early entry into WWoHP one hour prior to posted park opening. That will easily get you through both lands and Ollivander's if you care to do so (Do Ollivander's first---always have longest waits). After that, you can exit right out of the land to the Studio Tour and get that done. From there, just look at the wait time signs and go with the flow!

I ended up getting the Costco AP for $110 (only $5 more than a one day pass). It has a bunch of black out dates, but not a bad deal in case we visit again in the next year. That being said, the first day I use it will be in a few days. Am I able to get the early entry with that? No big deal if I can't. Also, what food items do I have to get?

You won't get it right away, but they will typically still open 15-20 minutes early for all ticket holders each morning.

Three Broomsticks is the best food place IMO---big portions and great food. You could probably eat an entire "great feast" (a meal meant for 4 people---ribs, chicken, corn on the cob, veggies, salad) by yourself. :lol:

I don't remember if Orlando has prime rib like Hollywood, but that was pretty good for being theme park quick serve! The cheese soup was delicious as well. The "sticky toffee pudding" is my favorite not dan friendly item.
