Universal Express Unlimited Passes are your fast track to the rides at Universal Orlando. Express Passes allow you to skip the standby line and experience shorter wait times for many attractions at Universal Studios and Islands of Adventure at Universal Orlando Resort. Learn all about Universal Express Unlimited Passes and how they work below.
How the Universal Express Unlimited Pass Works
Universal Express Unlimited passes allow you to enter the Express at select attractions, significantly reducing the time you’d spend in line compared to the standby line. The passes also give you first dibs on seats at Universal shows, like The Bourne Stuntacular. If you have thrill-ride lovers in your family, who are set on doing as many big coasters as they can in one day, an Express Unlimited pass will be a huge time saver.
To use the pass, simply walk up to the Express Line at the attraction you want to go to and present the pass to the Team Member. You can also save a digital copy on your phone through the Universal Orlando app, if you prefer. There are no return times, complicated reservation windows, or limits on how many times you can ride an attraction.
Universal Express Unlimited Passes are an additional fee to your theme park ticket. Prices vary based on anticipated park attendance that day; Passes are less on slower days and more expensive on busier days. Express Unlimited Passes start at $109 per guest for a one-day, one-park express pass option. Park-to-park express pass options start at $119 per ticket.
Here is a list of the current attractions that accept Univeral Express Unlimited Passes:

Pass Tips and Tricks
You get to use the pass as often as you’d like, as often as you want throughout the day. You could avoid the standby line for the entire day if you wish. Remember that Express Lanes are separate from the standby queue and are often much shorter. By entering the Express Lane, you may miss out on some of the attraction’s theming. For instance, if you’re a big Harry Potter fan and want to feel what it’s like to be inside Hogwarts Castle or Gringotts Bank, you may want to use the standby queues for the Harry Potter related attractions.
You’ll save the most time using the Express Lane at attractions with more than a 15-minute wait. However, you’ll get the most out of your pass if you use it for all available rides.
