Price: From $160 USD (1-2 day pass)

Review: “My son & his wife are Harry Potter fans and her dream has always been to go to Universal Studios. When they visited last week we surprised her with a day at the park, complete with Express Pass! Front of the line access to all of the rides & attractions made for a great experience for all 4 of us. The temps were near 100 degrees & NOT having to stand in those long lines were worth the extra cost a million fold. We estimated it saved us about 5 hours…literally half the day! Watching our son & daughter in law take in all the fun, food & magic was priceless. Thank you Universal Studios for some great memories. If you go to Universal Studios don’t go without the Express Pass. Trust me on this one.” – Viki, United States

Final thoughts on Los Angeles AirBNBs…

How cool would it be to have the availability and funds to just Airbnb hop around Los Angeles Airbnbs? It’s such a diverse city that there’s guaranteed to be a pocket of the city you’ll just fall in love with. If you’re heading to LA, I recommend having sufficient travel funds on hand, after all, the city isn’t cheap. But it’s totally worth it. Have an incredible time.
