  • Hey Alex, at this point we’re still learning. We are working on a post to go out this week with some of the changes.

  • Do you have any insight into how the Virtual Lines at Universal will work since it is on so many more attractions than it was pre-COVID? Looking at the Universal Mobile App, it appears that most of the popular rides now have a Virtual Line. On Universal’s website FAQ, they said that “Hotel guests staying at Hard Rock Hotel and Loews Royal Pacific Resort will be also able to take advantage of their Universal Express access benefit on any day of their visit.” I am still trying to visualize how this will play out.

    I’m hoping that Touring Plans visits Universal on opening day and gives a detailed blog of how it worked and whether it makes sense to still use Touring Plans at Universal.
