One of the great things about being a Passholder is enjoying the benefits that come along with it. Having admission to the park year-round (which is subject to block-out days depending on the type of pass you purchase) is already lots of fun, but the benefits certainly sweeten the deal!

Passholder Appreciation Days at Universal Orlando are RIGHT around the corner. They begin next week on August 15, 2023. You can see everything right here including NEW food items. Will you take advantage of these benefits? And do you think other theme parks should take note?
