Universal Orlando Annual Passholders will continue to enjoy the UOAP Lounge throughout 2020, along with other new perks.

Universal Orlando Resort has revealed that its Annual Passholders will be able to enjoy special perks like new exclusive park entrances and a private lounge during 2020.

For a limited time, Annual and Seasonal Passholders will be able to enter Universal Studios Florida and Universal’s Islands of Adventure through an exclusive entrance from park open to park close from January 4 – January 31, 2020. To utilize the entrance, Passholders will need to go to the marked UOAP turnstiles at the front of both theme parks and present their Annual or Seasonal Pass with a valid photo ID.

Additionally, the UOAP Lounge presented by Coca-Cola has been extended through 2020 – giving Passholders an exclusive place to stop in and relax all year round. The lounge is a place to take a break from the theme parks, charge electronic devices, and cool off with Coca-Cola beverages available for purchase. Plus, Passholders can experience the Arctic Coke Cooler, which crystalizes select 20 oz. Coca-Cola beverages.

And, the one year anniversary of the lounge will be celebrated on November 13, allowing Passholders to stop in and hang out on that day from park open to park close.

Florida Residents can now save up to $75 on Florida Resident Passes when purchasing now through January 6, 2020. For more information about UOAP perks and offers throughout the year, visit universalorlando.com/annualpass and watch these videos of past Passholder special events:

What they should do is include parking for all passholders, like Disney does! Because when you think about it the Disney AP is a better deal for your buck. You get 4 parks not 2 like Universal. You also get parking included which means you’ll actually get to enjoy the parks more often instead of paying monthly for something you have to pay more to get in. And fast passes at Disney even though not always accessible for the rides you want when you want them, are also free! Where as universal charges another fee for! Also fix the Hagrid ride! Haven’t been able to ride it not even once!

Disney’s AP’s are expensive and they are at Disney.

Parking is already included in Preferred passes and higher. Express access is included in Premier passes.

Good luck getting a FP for the most popular rides — unless you’re staying at a Disney hotel, of course.

Lol, you get what you pay for. Universal passes are much cheaper than Disney by several hundred dollars. Want free parking? Upgrade your pass.

Parking is included with my annual pass (preferred).

There is one perk that wasn’t included, but should- PARKING. The rear of the Handicapped Sections in the garages should be reserved for AP holders.

Drink cups for refills that you can pay for and it lasts for a year. Not $10+ every day! For those of us who visit the parks multiple times within a month, that can really add up. Busch Gardens and Disney offered an option to purchase a cup for $XX and you could get refills for $.99 each….would be a nice way to show appreciation to the annual pass holders.
