Universal Orlando annual passholders who have long pleaded with the park to provide them with durable cards instead of flimsy paper tickets can finally celebrate, because Universal Orlando has announced that they are re-introducing plastic Annual Passes starting on June 3rd.
In a posting on the official Universal Orlando Annual Passholder Facebook group, the resort revealed the return of plastic annual passes after a decade of distributing paper ones. Beginning June 3rd, valid annual passholders can swap their paper pass for a plastic one inside the Universal Orlando parks.
Plastic annual pass distribution is scheduled to run from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. at Jurassic Park Discovery Center in Islands of Adventure, and Cafe La Bamba in Universal Studios Florida. Pass distribution dates are currently June 3, 4 & 5; June 10, 11 & 12; and June 17, 18 and 19.
UPDATE: The pass exchange will be available every day from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. from June 3 to 19.
The new Annual Passes will feature the recently updated Universal Orlando resort logo, and be available in three distinct colors – purple for Power Passes, teal for Preferred Passes and gold for Premier Passes. In addition to the upgraded appearance, the new passes are sturdier and more durable than the current passes. Also, the passes will match the updated sleeves that have already been distributed.
Log into Universal’s annual passholder website for more information. Here’s a short video Universal released to celebrate the return of plastic Annual Passes:
