Universal Orlando Raises Annual Pass Prices

April 19, 2016, 2:46 PM · Universal Orlando Resort raised prices on its annual passes this week, with increases ranging from 3 to 9 percent.

The new pass prices (not including taxes) are:

Power Pass

Preferred Pass

Premium Pass

The Preferred and Premium passes include unlimited park admission and in-park discounts on food and merchandise. The Power Pass is subject to blockout dates and does not include in-park discounts. The Premium Pass includes free preferred and valet parking after the first visit, while the Preferred Pass includes self-parking. The Premium Pass also includes a Halloween Horror Nights ticket, CityWalk club access, and unlimited Universal Express line-skipping access after 4pm.

Universal Orlando raised prices on its single- and multi-day tickets in February. Universal Orlando remains the largest theme park resort in the country not to charge varying prices for one-day tickets, based on date, after Walt Disney World and Disneyland (and sibling Universal Studios Hollywood) all adopted such plans.

Thomas Williams is the worst Chairman ever and the worst thing to happen to the company. Carl would be so dissapointed. And what have they built in the last 10 years? Transformers? That Spiderman reskin? No thanks. If you excuse me, I'm going off to Disney.
April 20, 2016 at 3:17 PM · Harry Potter. I think Harry Potter is what they have build in the last 10 years lol. Sorry you missed out on that event.

April 21, 2016 at 2:14 AM · I have been saying for years that both Disney and Universal only care about the vacationers visiting from out of town willing to spend lots of money. This is good for the stack holders but not the locals.
April 21, 2016 at 5:49 AM · @72.186.11.145 you're hilarius, Universal has build more new rides, plussed area's and updated their offerings many times more then Disney did the past 15+ years. I think the price rise is justified.
April 21, 2016 at 7:00 AM · Wow, somebody finally vented it - Tom Williams is without a doubt the worst chairman in the theme park industry. Short-sighted and willing to piss on anyone that works for him.

April 21, 2016 at 11:45 AM · I don't really think there was one to begin with.;)
April 22, 2016 at 8:14 AM · I think a lot of people here are misinterpreting my original comment. (Oh, hi, this is my IP address when I'm away from home).

I was trying to make fun of all the trolls who complain when Disney raises their prices by reversing their arguements. For example, I ended the comment by saying that I'd be going to Disney instead, like how a lot of Disney-hating trolls will end their comments by saying that they'll be going to Universal instead. Also, I didn't know that Williams was actually bad. I just did a quick Google search to find out who Universal's equivalent of Bob Iger was (or, rather, the closest candidate I could find) for the sake of the joke. For all I knew, he could have been the nicest guy in the world. So, yeah, sorry if that's a disappointment for you.:/

I can assure you all that I don't hate Universal. I've enjoyed every single one of my visits. What I do hate, however, is the extremely unfair amount of bias that Universal receives on this website.
