Life goes on. When it comes down to it there will always be people traveling and going to the parks unless they are asked to close. I just keep thinking back to 9/11 and while some people stayed away, there were still people going to the parks.
Myself included.. 4-day Disney park hopper for $99? I was in my teens and could afford it.

Preferred Parking is now $50, matching Disney. Surprisingly Disney is still at $25 for General Parking despite Universal and SeaWorld both charging $26:

Apologies if this is not the best thread for this question -

I will be going to universal for 8 days in October. My reading of the ticket options is that the annual pass is my best best, and the most cost effective.

But am I reading correctly that if I want express I would have to buy them for each day? There’s no larger package that just includes express? I was hoping, for example, something like the 5 day park-to-park package, but with express. I just want to make sure I’m not missing anything in the options.
Thanks for any advice

There's no package like that BUT partly there if you buy the highest level AP. It has Express Pass privileges after 4:00 PM....plus parking and food discounts....In the long run that might be an option to look at.

Yeah you would, I’ve never seen Express offered in a multi day format but I could be missing something. If you want to do express check out the hotels that offer it with a UOAP discount.

I would definitely still check prices against Royal Pacific, Portofino and Hard Rock. Depending on how many people are going, you may get a much better value from the room covering express for all parties, including your check in and check out days.

Though I take it AP holders would need to pay for parking if staying at onsite hotel?
