Buying an annual pass for any theme park is often a big financial commitment, whether it be for Disney World or Universal Orlando. Now, Universal is making it easier for guests by adding a lot more value to their passes.
Universal Orlando Resort is now offering Annual Passholders an extra 3 months on their pass if purchased by March 31, 2021.
This means that from now until March 31, new or renewing Universal Passholders will get 15 months’ access to Universal Studios, Universal’s Islands of Adventure, and Volcano Bay for the price of a 12-month pass.
The Universal Orlando site states:
For a limited time, get 3 months free on any 2-Park Pass. Passholders get to visit the parks during Universal’s Mardi Gras 2021 and all year long. And now you can get 3 more months of awesome woah moments for free. Become a Passholder today! Blockout dates and restrictions apply.
This deal is one that has been available in the past, but it is never guaranteed to return — so taking advantage while it is available is always a good option.
If you are considering taking advantage of this deal and becoming a Universal Orlando Annual Passholder, there are a few categories of passes available to you. Take a look at what is available in terms of pricing vs. value to see which is the right Annual Pass for you.

Universal Orlando Resort is going to be in for an exciting 2021 year, so purchasing an Annual Pass that will extend well into 2022 for no extra cost is excellent value. VelociCoaster, Universal’s newest high-speed storytelling coaster, will be opening up this summer, and Mardi Gras will also be returning! Let’s not forget other events such as Halloween Horror Nights, which happens through the spooky months of the fall, and then Grinchmas through the winter holidays — all of which you get to experience if you have an Annual Pass.
Currently, Universal Orlando is operating at what they have announced to be 35% capacity. However, the parks have and can increase that number silently. That being said, the parks often do hit capacity, so it seems that guest demand is only getting stronger for Universal Orlando.
Therefore, this new incentive will not only attract locals but likely vacationers who want to visit Universal multiple times on their trip — and plan to return within the next 15 months.
