From Aug. 16 through Sept. 30, Universal Orlando annual passholders will have some perks as part of the resort’s Passholder Appreciation Days promotion.

One of the biggest new offerings will allow passholders inside the park early. Power and Seasonal passholders will be eligible on weekdays between Aug. 16 and Sept. 30 for early park admission at Universal’s two theme parks. This benefit, which allows guests inside one hour prior to the parks’ public openings, is typically reserved for Premier and Preferred passholders, as well as guests at Universal’s on-site hotels. 3-park passholders who already have access to Volcano Bay will also receive early park admission to Universal’s water park. 

Special food items will be available throughout the resort during the promotion. The exclusive AP menu includes vegan pizza tots at Green Eggs & Ham Cafe, peaches and cream french toast at the Toothsome Chocolate Emporium, and kimchee-spiced fries at Mel’s Drive In. 

Other perks and benefits being offered include:

  • Hotel rates starting at $69 per night at either wing of Universal’s Endless Summer Resort
  • 30 percent discount on Universal Express passes
  • Exclusive passholder merchandise
  • New passholder magnets available at the UOAP Lounge in Universal Studios Florida or Toon Extra at Islands of Adventure

Universal Orlando has continued selling annual passes during the COVID-19 pandemic. In contrast, Disney World paused new pass sales until sometime before the start of its 50th anniversary celebration on Oct. 1.
