Universal Studios Orlando – Express Plus Pass

Universal does not offer a free “express pass” the way Disney does with it’s FastPass system. Universal offers Express Plus access to most of their major attractions for a fee of either $40+tax (1 Day / 1 park express pass), or $50+tax (1 day / 2 park express pass).

This is IN ADDITION to your regular admission ticket, and will entitle you to bypass the lines on most attractions with no more than a 15 minute average wait. Universal only makes this pass available on certain dates.
