If your budget allows for it, we suggest doing so because these hotels provide complimentary Express passes that allow you to skip the regular lines at participating Universal Studios Florida and Islands of Adventure attractions. However, we also recommend looking at Universal Orlando’s other on-site hotels. To help you decide which hotel is best for you, read our in-depth guide by clicking here.

If you find a hotel that better matches your budget or your needs, yes; however, we suggest looking at on-site hotels as well. Universal Orlando’s on-site hotels provide special benefits, such as early park admission, resort-wide charging privileges, complimentary club-to-club access to select Universal CityWalk venues, priority seating at select restaurants (available to guests staying at select on-site hotels), complimentary Express passes to skip the regular lines at participating attractions (available to guests staying at select on-site hotels), and more.
