Virgin holiday package

Just need abit of help about something, we are about to book a holiday for early september 2015. Now with virgin they are saying that you get a free universal express, now is this for one person or for the two of us? and what do you actually get with that, is it just the express pass for queue jump?

As far as I am aware purchasing your Universal tickets only get you early entry to Harry Potter. They do not get you passes for anywhere in IOA or US. Bear in mind Forbidden Journey does not have express passes. Check their prices as well as I have heard their tickets are dearer.

You will get unlimited express passes for both parks as you are staying at Hard Rock as well as early entry to HP.

Everyone staying at a Universal Hotel gets the Express Pass, every person in the room will have this privilege, it is one of the perks for staying on site ( not sure why Virgin make's it sound like something "They" are giving you for Free )

Yes, you still to purchase park tickets. The hotel will issue every member of your party unlimited express passes for the duration of your stay - including the day you check out. As partypa says, not a perk from Virgin themselves. Again,

make sure you shop around for the best prices for your park tickets.

Virgin may also tell you (as they did with us) that you need to buy actual universal tickets with them to qualify for the express passes. As others have said this isn't actually an exclusive to virgin deal it is from the hotels so make sure you get tickets from wherever is best price for you and not necessarily from virgin.

We never bought any tickets from them but we did 'qualify' for a kids eat free card. We were supposed to go to DTD at 10am for a meeting and collect any tickets we had. We never bothered as we didn't want to waste a morning. Not sure if that's the case with park tickets too.
