    Default Express Pass....is it worth it?

    Never been to Universal. We are going to do the 2 park 1 day pass and primarily stick to Harry Potter world. We are visiting mid November (week before Thanksgiving week). We are not staying on property at Universal (we are staying at WDW). The Express Passes for Universal are about $90 extra each on top of the ticket park entrance. Quite a costly day! However this is probably the one and only time I will be bringing my mom to see this so I am willing to do this if it is really worth it. However I have no desire to spend the extra money if I really don't need to . She is older with mobility issues. Can she ride any of the Harry Potter rides? The only other ride I thought she might be interested in was Jurasic Park???
    Thoughts???

    We have stayed on site at Universal and had the Unlimited Express pass. If the parks are busy it can be a life saver.

    The week before Thanksgiving Nov 12 - 18 should be moderate crowds, that is until Sat 11/18, then I believe you will start seeing heavy crowds until the week following Thanksgiving where the levels will drop back down.

    Can you purchase the tickets at the park the day of? You would hate to drop an additional $180.00 for 2 Unlimited Express Passes early, just to find you hit a low crowd day that doesn't need them.

    I would play it by ear and grab them the day of if you can.

    I would think it would be worth it. We didn't get it when we were there in November because at that time the Harry Potter rides weren't included. Since then they have included them. Would be a huge time saver in my opinion.

    The Harry Potter rides are pretty intense....She may just enjoy soaking in the atmosphere and riding the train between between US and IOA....

    We get the pass anytime we visit a Universal Park (cali or orlando). Great time saver, and can really make the experience so much less stressful and easier. We killed the original Universal Park earlier in the day, and were able to enjoy Citiwalk a bit. Were able to ride a bit more on IOA in the afternoon when the non potter areas filled up.
