Buffet of Buffet customers must still wait in the regular buffet lines which can be long. However, you can also purchase an Express Line Pass to enter through the VIP entrances. Express line passes are only available for a single buffet location.
Only food and non-alcoholic drinks are included in the program. However, you can just pay extra for on your own for those items. Sorry, but kids don’t get any discounts.
Buffet of Buffet Pass Tips: If you purchase you pass just before dinner, it will be good for a full 24 hours, giving you two dinner buffets, which is a good deal.
In order to avoid long waiting times, try going during off-days and hours. Monday-Thursday will be less busy. Go towards the end of lunch, like before 3 pm. This also lets you take advantage of sampling both lunch and dinner items if you stay long enough as they switch over the buffet items. Likewise, you can go for a late breakfast (10 am) and enjoy lunch items once they change to it.
Pace yourself! We tried the pass, but could barely get in three buffets in the 24 hours because we “over did it” at the start. You can always go back to a buffet you like later to try more items you really enjoy. Go for small samples at the different buffet so you can experience as any items as possible. Do some research first, such as reading online reviews about the different buffets so you know what items try first and perhaps which ones to avoid.
