Of course. Now I remember. I think you have to upgrade APs at the park, but can't remember who said that. Or if I'm making it up. I figure we might as well do the upgrade because it won't cost much more than our 3 day park hoppers, and we didn't plan to be back this year, but here we are going again. I figure the chances of the stars aligning and at least some of us winding up at Universal again within a year are pretty good, so this time I'm going to upgrade.
We also picked up our tickets purchased with UR’s at Hard Rock Hotel this past August. Not sure if you can upgrade them at the hotel as we did the upgrade in the park. We upgraded to the lowest tier seasonal pass for a little over $20 a person. It was a fantastic deal if you can work your next trip around the black out dates!
