Is the Express Pass Worth It When Visiting Universal Studios Hollywood?


Thank you to Universal Studios Hollywood for providing me with a ticket and Express Pass to enjoy the day at the park! All opinions expressed are 100% my own.

Is the Express Pass Worth It When Visiting Universal Studios Hollywood_

I recently took a trip with some friends of mine to check out Universal Studios Hollywood. We had so much fun – largely in part to the Express Pass. This allowed us to take our time and not stress about running from ride to ride to make sure we got them all in. I have had several friends and family ask me if purchasing an Express Pass is worth it when visiting – and my answer is YES! So worth it! And here is why.

You Can Skip the Lines

With an Express Pass you can skip the lines for pretty much every single ride. Yes. SKIP THE LINES. Similar to Disney’s FastPass+ the Express Pass more than pays for itself if you value your time. Thanks to this pass, visitors gain express access to each ride, attraction, and seated show at Universal Studios Hollywood. This saved our group a lot of time, and allowed us to fully experience the whole park in one day. We were able to do everything that we wanted, and have some down time enjoying our lunch.

Save When You Purchase Online

If you decide to visit Universal Hollywood, I highly recommend purchasing your Universal Express tickets online before you go. You can save $10 per ticket online vs. the front gate price. That will add up quickly depending on the size of your group, and you can spend that money on yummy snacks or souvenirs!

Overall, I have to say this is extremely worth it. The Express pass ends up being about $70 extra per person, but like I said, having this ensures you will get on every single ride. And see every single show. Plus, you don’t have to wait in line. I don’t know about you, but for me the worst part about theme parks is waiting in line. Experience Universal Studios Hollywood to its fullest with Universal Express tickets!
