My family and I are planning a vacation to Orlando this August/September. We have a nice 3 bedroom villa off resort already booked for the duration (14 days) but are looking at booking a night at the Loews Royal Pacific Resort primarily to benefit from the complimentary Unlimited Express Passes and the early entry. We want to do loads of different things in our two weeks and for the price of the room, the Unlimited Express Passes will help us make the very most of our two days at Universal.
So, now the questions... ;o)
a) Am I right in thinking that a 1 night stay gives us 2 full days of Express Passes? i.e. Both the day you check in *and* the day you check out?
b) I feel a bit silly asking this one but, if we were comfortable in our villa, then presumably, once we checked in to the Royal Pacific early on the first day, there's no reason we'd need to actually *stay* the night there? It looks lovely etc. but our villa would have more space and be quieter. Presumably we could just come back really early the second day, park in the hotel car park again and take advantage of our early entry and Express Passes?
Thanks in advance for any constructive opinions! :o)
