Mobile Three day explorer /staying on site

Hi,
I have just purchased the universal 3 day explorer ticket for our trip next August.

We will be staying on site at Portofino bay for eight days before moving to Disney for 2 weeks.

With this ticket will I be able to get fast passes for the days that I stay at the universal hotel.

I think I do, but just wanted to check that this is the case with these tickets.

Thanks!

The Universal 3 Park Explorer ticket gives you 14 days unlimited admission into the 3 Universal parks. Because you're staying at the Portofino Bay hotel you get the free Universal Express Unlimited pass for the length of stay, so you will be ok. I don't think you can use this at Volcano Bay though, but maybe someone can confirm this or correct me if I am wrong.

Thanks lyn1. Thats put my mind at ease. Just need to work out how many days to set aside for planning for going to universal, IOA and volcano bay.

With a 2yo, 7 yo and 9yo, not sure how many rides will be available for their age/height.

The idea of staying on site for 8 days and getting the 14 day ticket was to ensure we can do it a leisurely pace.

Will prob use some of the time shopping, around the pool, visit to sea world etc

With the fast passes includes, can anyone advise how much time I should set aside for universal parks based on my childrens age group?

My wife and I have been to Florida before, but its our first family visit, so plan to stay on site (at universal and Disney) and not drive.

Many thanks in advance for any tips that can be fed into my planning.

Sorry can't help with this as I have only ever been in September, and from what I have read it's quieter then than in August. I'm sure there are members who can help you though. Have you tried asking on the trip planning forum?
