Universal Orlando: Annual passholder appreciation days coming

Universal Orlando is doling out an array of special offers, discounts and opportunities during its Passholder Appreciation Days promotion, which runs from Aug. 14 through the end of September.

The resort’s annual passholders can benefit in a handful of ways, including:

+ One hour’s worth of early admission to Volcano Bay water park — including Labor Day — through Sept. 30 for three-park passholders.

+ A special rate — starting at $109 per night — for Loews Sapphire Falls Resort, through Sept. 28. (There’s also a 20 percent discount on the hotel’s Wantilan Luau Dinner Show on select evenings.)

+ Discounts are available for Rock the Universe and Halloween Horror Nights tickets at Universal Studios, plus performances of Blue Man Group at Universal CityWalk.

+ In the parks, there are passholder discounts available for Universal Express, Universal Dining Plan (quick service) and the annual pass photo package.

+ At Islands of Adventure, there will be exclusive, limited capacity, after-hours events on Aug. 27 and Aug. 31. Sign-up will be required but has not started yet.

+ A passholder-approved ice cream (with cake-batter ice cream plus brownies and caramel) will be available, while supplies last, at Cold Stone Creamery at CityWalk. Pricing ranges between $6.29 and $7.29.
