We previously reported on the updates to the annual passes for Universal Orlando Resort, but it seems there has been another major update since those benefits were released: A price increase.

These are now the new prices for two-park UOAPs (for non-Florida residents):

  • Premier Pass ($714.99)
  • Preferred Pass ($499.99)
  • Power Pass ($449.99)
  • Seasonal Pass ($399.99)

These prices reflect a $50.00 increase for each level pass.

If you’d like to do the three-park UOAP, here is what you will now pay:

  • Premier Pass ($904.99)
  • Preferred Pass ($609.99)
  • Power Pass ($559.99)
  • Seasonal Pass ($499.99)

Of course, Florida residents receive a healthy discount on UOAPs and those rates can be found on the official Universal Orlando Resort website.

Here’s a look at the benefits of each pass.
