I don't see it as a bad sign, I would think if they were looking to prop attendance, it wouldn't include a Friday night.Damn a month earlier than I will be there. A lot of the value pass holders prob aren't going in august. I wonder if this is actually a bad sign in that they haven't hit the numbers they wanted to for universal.
Unfortunately the 20th is already full.So question. I'm technically a pass holder but I haven't activated my pass yet, I bought them last month and coincidentally I'll be on the parks on the 20th-22nd and would like to go to this but I don't have my passes yet so I don't have the pass holder code needed to reserve a spot. Any way to alleviate this?

What time can you check in for the event? I'm going tonight.I went last night. I seemed to have a nearly opposite experience of @IzzyB everything went very smoothly. I started at IOA very easy and smooth process to pick up the pass. I went to USF to see some HHN street stuff while waiting for the event. I watched the fireworks then went into DA, rode Gringott's came out and took the HE express back over to IOA where I spent the rest of the evening. The limit of 8,000 didn't exactly create complete walk ons but it was fairly close. The thing that really stood out more to me than anything else is everyone was so friendly with each other and everyone seemed to be having a good time enjoying the parks. There was nothing really special about it beyond just having a couple extra hours in the park, but that's pretty much what I was expecting. Overall it was a really great event and a nice way for UO to show appreciation for the pass holders. I won't bother trying to compare it to Disney events because the simple fact is Disney would never even do anything like this for their pass holders.
It starts at 4. I checked in around 6 and there was no wait at all, I know the lines got very long later in the evening although I didn't see it personally. Also they have a person at the Coke thing in CityWalk with a sign pointing people to check-in. Check in is at both parks they just seem to be flipping the sign to balance the crowds. So if you are planning to start at one park don't think you have to go the way they're pointing you, you can go to either park.What time can you check in for the event? I'm going tonight.
