This kind of information isn’t very surprising anymore, and seems to happen at least several times a year… but it still always stings a little bit when theme park admission prices go up. This time the bad news comes from Universal Orlando Resort, which is raising its Annual Pass costs between four and ten percent each.
As you can see in the chart below, the cost of the Premier Pass has gone up to $449.99 (from $429.99), the Preferred Pass has been raised to $344.99 (previously $334.99), and the Power Pass now costs $254.99 (up from $239.99). Of course, Florida residents still get significant discounts on all three passes.
This news comes after Universal Orlando’s sister park in Los Angeles recently raised its Annual Pass prices (and even adding a newly-named all-inclusive option) in anticipation of its Wizarding World of Harry Potter opening. For Universal fans, there isn’t much we can do except grin and bear it, as the only other option is to stop going to the parks on a regular basis. And who wants to do that?
