Universal Orlando offers a wide variety of tickets for the Passholder. The varying types include the Seasonal, Power, Preferred and Premier. Each of the Passholder ticket types have their own benefits that include discounts and available days for visiting the parks. When you are thinking of purchasing or renewing an Annual Pass, you will need to consider the following:
- How many parks you want to have the ability to visit. If you think you are going to visit Volcano Bay, you will need a 3 park ticket. If you do not intend on visiting the water park, then you will only need a 2 park ticket.
- What days will you be visiting the parks. Certain passes have black out dates. So, if you are going to be visiting during that time frame, you will need to be sure to purchase the pass that will work for your dates of visiting the park.
- Parking costs. If you do not want to pay for parking each time you head to the park, you need to purchase a pass that offers the free parking.
- The need for discounts on food and merchandise. If you want to enjoy discounts on dining and merchandise, be sure to purchase a pass that will allow for such discounts.
