My bf's birthday is coming up in July and I am thinking of surprising him with the VIP experience. Tix for the his birthday (which is on a weekend) is running at $399/pp. It's a bit expensive, especially for the both of us. Just wondering if it is worth it. The last time we were at Universal Studios was in 2004. He enjoyed it a lot back then and he wants to ride the rides at Harry Potter world. I like to learn about the history of movies so being able to see the backlot stuff is cool too. Also, if we get the VIP experience, can we enter the park during early opening at 8 AM?
