Universal Brings Back Popular Annual Pass!

in Universal Studios Hollywood

Universal Hollywood Pass

Shortly after Universal Studios Hollywood announced that the theme park would be reopening after a more than year-long closure, it also announced that it would be resuming sales of Annual Passes. At first, the only Annual Passes available were the Silver and Gold Annual Passes, however, the Platinum Pass and California Neighbor Pass were brought back in June.

Unfortunately, it seems that those passes were either too popular or not popular enough, as they were only available on the Universal Hollywood website for a few weeks. Universal said that the Platinum and California Neighbor Passes may come back in the future, but there was no date or timetable for their return. However, it now looks like Universal has decided to bring back at least one of them.

Guests visiting the Universal Hollywood website now have the option to once again purchase the California Neighbor Pass. The California Neighbor Pass is only available to California residents and is the cheapest of the three Annual Pass offerings — with a price point of $159. Because of this low price point, the California Neighbor Pass has the most amount of blackout dates, and monthly payments are not available, meaning the Pass must be paid for in full.

The Silver and Gold Universal Hollywood Annual Passes are available with the monthly payment options after a down payment is made — the Silver Pass requires a $119 down payment and the Gold Annual Pass requires a $144 down payment.

Since the California Neighbor Pass was only around for a few weeks the first time, if you want to grab yours, you may want to do it sooner rather than later, as it is possible Universal could remove it from the website at any time. The Platinum Pass is still unavailable for purchase at this time, but it could make its return at some point.
