Some major changes have recently been implemented in the Express service for guests staying at one of the three Universal Orlando hotels. Here you are additional information, from the Universal Orlando Resort:
Universal Express Unlimited Kiosks for On-Site Hotel Guests Now Live
Universal Orlando is in the process of making changes to how our on-site hotel guests receive their free Universal Express Unlimited benefit. Our on-site hotel guests will no longer show their room key card for Universal Express Unlimited attraction access. Instead, they will use special new kiosks located at each on-site hotel and at both theme parks to print a pass which includes their photo. This helps to ensure this valuable benefit is being used by those for whom it is intended. These new kiosks are now operational, and are located at Universal Studios Florida and Islands of Adventure Guest Services as well as in the lobbies inside of each on-site hotel: Loews Portofino Bay Hotel, Hard Rock Hotel, and Loews Royal Pacific Resort. Additional kiosks will be coming later to select locations within the parks.
This sounds like a good change. We only wish to see Universal doing the same with the Annual Passes (personally, I still have - and love - the "old" version of the annual pass, which includes my own photo).
