Do these 2-day passes ever expire? I really thought that they were non-expiring; perhaps that has changed in the last six years?
If day #2 is still good, do the tix HAVE to be used for the other park &/or Cityscape or can we return to the same park as last time?
DH is going to be in Orlando for a business trip for a couple of weeks and thought he could go to Universal on weekends.
Thanks!

i don't remember the set up from 6 years back but do know that some of the 2 day, 2 park tickets are still valid after you have used one day of them.

with the 2 day, 2 park tickets, you can use them for one park or both.
you are not tied into using them for both parks.
if you want to go to the park you last used them, you can.

many will buy the hoppers/2 day park, in order to save money than buying two different one day/ one park tickets

contact guest services when you are there and they can verify the pass.

some years back some friends bought the 2 day passes and saved the second day for another year.

i still have day tickets from 1996 that are valid.
i checked them at guest services a few years ago.

Crowds are not bad in October so no real worries there. However...HP will still be busy and the Studios will be more crowded in the afternoons as the people for HHN begin to arrive. Otherwise...nothing too bad.

Just avoid the Studios after about 3:30pm or so. CityWalk will also be very crowded by dinner time so keep that in mind. Other than that...I wouldn't change your plans.

Thanks again for your input. Looks like IOA is the best bet for an all day adventure

Questions about tickets, multi-park entry

I will be staying offsite, but booked through the Universal website to get early entry into IOA. I will be staying at a completely different hotel in another area of Orlando (not booked through Universal) the night before.

Can you print and use the tickets on days before your hotel reservation starts? I know I will not be able to use the early entry or other perks, but I bought a 2 park/multi-day ticket and wondered if I could go in the night before if I get there early enough to be worth it.

And one more question about the 2-park tickets - can you go back and forth between parks as much as you want on the same day? Or can you only visit each park once each day? For example, I thought about visiting IOA early in the morning, visiting US early afternoon, then going back to IOA later in the afternoon if possible. Just wondering if you can do this or not.

Thanks!

I know a lot of you have been wanting to hear some good quality version of the IOA BGM that plays near the lighthouse outside the park.

I personally requested this audio from YouTube user PopSong1.

He captures much of the BGM in this video by standing right next to the speakers, with virtually no ambient noise.

If you can convert YT to MP3 then viola!

City Walk Question..

Fiance and I are honeymooning at Disney World, but plan on doing one day at Universal in the middle of the week. Haven't chosen which park yet, but thinking IOA. My question is, we wanted to have dinner at Jimmy Buffet's Margaritaville. If we get the one day, one park ticket, and go to either IOA or US, can we go to the City walk and be able to go here for dinner with this ticket?
