Time to check into Universal hotel

Hello

We are staying one night at Loews Pacific resort 26th August for one night.

Coming from POFQ so what time would you aim to leave POFQ in an Uber to get to the hotel and check in? The Park openings are 9-9 but there is early park admission on both parks for 8am?

I'm thinking get uber at 7am then journey shows 20mins leaves 40mins for check in and drop bags and get express passes and get to one of the parks? Does that sound doable?

Thanks

Agree, sounds perfect timing, and if you are early, you can just get a drink and sit somewhere nice for 30 mins...

BIB, you no longer need to get express passes. They now are your room key.

If you like water parks, use your early opening on both days for Volcano Bay. It is a far better perk than early opening at the parks as you have Express anyway.

Check in is very easy and very quick.

We haven't done Volcano Bay yet, only Blizzard Beach.

Is it any good?

Just out of curiosity as weíre staying for 1 night next year - what happens when you check out on day 2? I assumed you had express passes all day of day 2 but how do you do that if youíve given the room key back at check out?
