My family will be at Universal Orlando from July 15 to 23, staying at Cabana bay. During my trip, both Universal Studios and Islands of Adventure have Early Park Admission at 8am. I have a few questions. 1. What time do they actually let the on-site guests in? Do they do it earlier or right at 8am? 2. What time should I be at the Cabana Bay bus stop to get there before EPA. Our last trip to Universal was in May 2015 and we stayed at Portofino. It's been a while and they might have changed some opening procedures since. Plus, we didn't have to deal with the bus then. I'm still on the fence if we should do Volcano Bay. We all have preferred AP. We will need to get 1-day VB tickets (I have no problem with that). On one hand, I'd like to wait to do it on one of our future trips (October 2017, December 2017, and July 2018) so the kinks will hopefully be all worked out. But on the other hand, it's so exciting to be able to visit a brand new park NOW. Any weighing in is greatly welcome!! Also, has anyone been to VB at night? How is the park during nighttime? It's open till 10pm in July. I was thinking, if we go at all, we can be there for EPA and leave around noon to go rest in our room at CB. And maybe going back in again in the evening, just like touring regular, non-water parks. Since we'll have only 1-day tickets, I want to get the most out of it. It seems like the park is closed for capacity early everyday now. Does anyone know if they open it back up later in the day?
