Universal Orlando Raises Annual Pass Prices, Changes Benefits; Introduces New Seasonal Pass
- Updated: August 31, 2016
Universal Orlando is rolling out a new Annual Pass program; which has raised prices for existing tiers, added new benefits and introduces a new Seasonal Pass.
The Seasonal Pass replaces the Power Pass as the new seasonal, limited-date annual pass. The new pass offers park-to-park admission with blackout dates through peak times at the Resort.
Seasonal Passes will also offer discounts for Universal Orlando’s separately-ticketed events, like Halloween Horror Nights, and discounts on Blue Man Group tickets, on-site hotel stays, multi-day theme park tickets purchased at the Front Gate, and more.
With the introduction of the new pass, Universal Orlando also changed prices for their existing passes. This is the 2nd increase of Annual Passes this year. The new pricing is as follows:
Seasonal – $284.99
Power – $344.99
Preferred – $384.99
Premier – $539.99
Seasonal – $259.99
Power – $319.99
Preferred – $349.99
Premier – $489.99
The Power Pass, which was formally seen as Universal’s seasonal pass, now offers less blackout dates – most notable during the Summer months. Parking prices are discounted at 50% instead of complimentary ($10 at time of this publishing) and will not offer Early Park Admission.
Preferred and Premier Passes will offer Early Park Admission, with Preffered passes having blackout dates for that benefit. Other benefits remain the same, such as free parking and discounts.
Universal Orlando hints that more updates could come later, but no indication if it’s in regard to more benefits or special events. Visit the Annual Pass page for more information and pricing for each pass and to see the complete list of benefits and entitlements.
