Universal Orlando adds new annual pass tier, raises prices

August 31, 2016, 8:29 AM · Universal Orlando Resort this morning added a fourth annual pass tier while raising prices on its other three AP options.

 Here are the prices for Universal Orlando’s annual passes. These prices are before tax, and a monthly payment plan is available.
  • Premium — $539.99, up from $494.99. The Florida resident price is now $489.99, up from $449.99.
  • Preferred — $384.99, up from $344.99. Florida resident price now $349.99, up from $309.99.
  • Power — $344.99, up from $254.99. Florida resident price now $319.99, up from $234.99.
  • Seasonal — This is a new tier, priced at $284.99. Florida residents pay $259.99.

The Preferred and Premium passes include unlimited park admission and in-park discounts on food and merchandise. The Seasonal and Power Pass are subject to blockout dates and do not include in-park discounts. The Seasonal pass has more blockout dates than the Power pass: from June 10 – August 13, 2017, in addition to the Christmas/New Year’s Holiday and Spring Break blockouts the new Power pass has.

The Premium Pass includes free preferred and valet parking after the first visit, while the Preferred Pass includes self-parking, and the Power Pass now includes a 50 percent discount on self-parking, which it did not have before today’s changes. That goes a long way to explain the big jump in price for that pass, although an argument can be made that the new Seasonal pass is actually more like what the old Power pass was.

The Preferred and Premium passes also now offer access to the early park admission available to Universal Orlando park guests, although the early admission for Preferred pass members is subject to blockout dates. The Premium Pass also includes a Halloween Horror Nights ticket, CityWalk club access, and unlimited Universal Express line-skipping access after 4pm.
