Do I get the Unlimited Express Pass if I stay at the Hard Rock Hotel Resort?

Yes!
Did you realize, when you book your stay at the Hard Rock Hotel in Orlando, you not only get a great stay at an amazing resort, you also get Daily Express passes to Universal Orlando? It is true! Not all of the Universal Resorts offer this but staying in any of the Deluxe Resorts like the Loews Portofino Bay Hotel, Loews Royal Pacific Resort, or the Hard Rock Hotel gets you this incredible option. Let’s take a look at what this actually means:

  • Each guest will get the FREE Universal Express Unlimited which allows bypassing the long, general access lines at Universal Studios and Islands of Adventure. This access is given each day you visit the parks. Think of the savings each and every day by having this available to you.
  • This option is also good for getting you priority seating at many of the Theme Park restaurants as well as City Walk.

Early Park Admission

But there is more. Being a guest at the Hard Rock Hotel in Orlando also gets you in to the parks early each day. This early access gives you a full hour access to the Wizarding World of Harry Potter and the Volcano Bay Water Park before guests with General admission do. Always check with the hotel to see if any changes have been made to this option and also which parks are available each day to you.

On top of early access to the parks, being a guest at the Hard Rock Resort in Orlando also has a Complimentary Shuttle system to get you to and from the parks each day. The Hard Rock Hotel Orlando is the closest Universal Resort to the Theme Parks. Walking from the back of the Hotel to the parks only takes about 5 minutes, so many guests use this as the fastest option. Buses are available from the front of the resort and a Water Taxi system is available from the back pier.


Room Key Payments

It’s nice when you can leave your credit cards and cash behind and having a Room Key at the Hard Rock Hotel will afford you this option. Just take your room key with you to the parks and use it to make purchases.
