Starting Aug. 10, Universal Orlando Annual Passholders will begin receiving new exclusive perks for this year’s Passholder Appreciation Days. From specialty food options to dedicated park entrance turnstiles, Universal Orlando is preparing to rev-up more fun for APs.
First things first: food! Annual Passholders can get new and exclusive food items at Universal Studios Florida, Universal’s Island’s of Adventure, and Universal CityWalk (yes, as you can see above, Voodoo Doughnut is making a specialty treat as well!)
Universal took the feedback from last year to heart, and are introducing new plant-based options, such as this Roasted Cauliflower Steak. This entrée features lemon-garlic roasted cauliflower, romesco sauce, stewed beluga lentils and toasted almonds. This new option can be found at the Confisco Grille.
Other delectable options can be discovered at Mythos Restaurant. The Mediterranean Lamb Bowl includes spiced ground lamb, house-made hummus, turmeric rice, tomato, cucumber, feta and charred pita.
Those looking for a sweeter option can head to Toothsome Chocolate Emporium & Savory Feast Kitchen Chocolate at Universal CityWalk. This chocolate batter waffle is topped with chocolate chunks, white whipped cream, chocolate raspberry sauce, chocolate shavings, powdered sugar and micro mint.
But, that’s not all! Annual Passholders will be able to get 18 different food items and three different cocktails. You can read up on all the food options by clicking here.
While Premier and Preferred Passholders always get a discount on food, Power and Seasonal Passholders can get 10 percent off at Universal Orlando owned and operated restaurants from Aug. 10 to Sept. 30 (excluding alcoholic beverages).
Special Park Access
All Passholders will be able to use a dedicated UOAP turnstile entrance at both Universal’s Islands of Adventure and Universal Studios Florida. Premier Passholders will be able to use an exclusive parking toll lane at the Universal Studios toll plaza. And all 3-Park Passholders can get into Universal’s Volcano Bay one hour before park opening during Passholder Appreciation Days.
Passholders will also be given early park admission access to Universal’s Islands of Adventure and Universal Studios Florida. Premier and Preferred can enjoy this offering throughout the Passholder Appreciation Days, but Power and Seasonal Passholders can only use this perk during weekdays.
Free Stuff and Merchandise
Magnet fans, be ready for Aug. 1. A new, free magnet option will be given out while supplies last. Annual Passholders can also get a new free UOAP button themed to the “Men In Black” franchise.
Outside of the free options, Annual Passholders can also purchase exclusive merchandise like a souvenir popcorn bucket and a new shirt. Learn about the UOAP specific merchandise and specific discount deals by clicking here.
Three Free Months of Peacock Premium
As an added perk, Annual Passholders will also get three months of Peacock Premium for free. This will allow Passholders to test out the second-highest tier of the streaming service before deciding to continue or cancel. Anyone interested in the three months must sign up with payment information beforehand. The service will begin auto-pay for a month-to-month service at the end of the three months, but this offer can be canceled beforehand for a truly totally-free streaming option for a limited time.
Most of these Passholder Appreciation Days perks last from Aug. 10 through Sept. 30. If you don’t have an annual pass and get one during the specialty appreciation days, you can still enjoy these perks. Magnets can run out fast, so it is best to head there sooner rather than later.
During these unprecedented times, international tourism and state-hopping is at an all time low. The parks have had very low waits and new social distancing rules.
