Universal Express a Thing of the Pass

Universal Express, Universal Orlando’s answer to Disney’s FASTPASS, is a thing of the pass…I mean, past.

In a move that is sure to be branded as unalloyed corporate greed, Universal is dumping the free pass machines but keeping the paid Universal Express Plus program, which allows visitors to pay for the privilege of getting front of the line (FOTL) privileges on the parks’ rides.

The passes which vary in price from $15 to a whopping $50, depending on crowd levels, allow one FOTL access per person per ride. Guests at the three resort hotels continue to get unlimited FOTL privileges during their stay by flashing their room key card.
