Meanwhile, at Universal, resort guests are guaranteed park entry, still get early park admission, and those staying at Hard Rock or Royal Pacific still get Express Pass. 1 temperature check daily with wristbands handed out.
I'm so close to switching our July trip to UO. With only having 1 full day available for the parks, without park hopping, the prices at Disney just don't seem worth it. For the price I'm paying for 2 nights at Dolphin, and a 1 day hopper (if its even available) I can get the same exact stay but at Sapphire Falls and 2-park 1 day passes, with the guarantee of entry, early park access, and transportation...all while, saving close to $175.
I've been wanting to see HP land for awhile, so might just make this switch. It's really shocking to see Disney be either completely unprepared, or just not care enough to share their details, especially when a lot of peoples trips are like 40 days out at this point.
