We are in Orlando for a couple of weeks in March (first time) and are staying at an Airbnb. I’m wondering if it’s worthwhile to book one night at a Universal Hotel just for the express pass. For my kids and I, paying for the express pass would be about $380 as a one day add on (and we are planning for two universal days). I think the room would be about $410. In my mind, it would be worthwhile if the pass applied both to the day of checkin and the day of checkout. Is that how it works? And if so, how early could I checkin to get the pass and lanyard on our first day?
