The first-ever Passholder Lounge at the Universal Orlando Resort has just opened inside of Universal Studios Florida. This new relaxing getaway can be found in the Hollywood section of the park, right next door to Schwab’s Pharmacy. It's a great place for annual passholders to kick back, enjoy the air conditioning, charge their phone and indulge in a free snack!
To enter the new lounge all you have to do is show your active annual pass or seasonal pass to the Team Member out front. All members in your party must have a valid pass to gain entry. Inside there are comfy couches and seating to help take a load off, as well as standing tables with built-in charging stations. There are cords and connections for all types of mobile devices, as well as USB ports and standard wall sockets. If your phone is drained from taking pics and posting to social media all day at the park, this is the perfect spot to stop in and recharge.
The new UOAP Lounge is presented by Coca-Cola, and there is a wide range of sodas for sale inside. You can also be one of the first people to try out the brand new Arctic Coke Cooler, which crystallizes your 20 ounce soda bottle, transforming it into a ice-cold slush right before your eyes. The Arctic Coke will stay colder much longer as you explore the parks! Free snacks are also available for everyone that visits, including small bags of chips and granola bars.
While you're there, be sure to pick up a UOAP magnet for your car and one of the special passholder buttons that are currently available while supplies last. You can also leave your mark on one of the many chalkboards that line the walls of the new lounge. Use the colorful chalk markers to write your answer to one of the prompts on these boards like "What's your must-do in the parks" and "Where's the best photo op in the parks."
If you're lucky, you may even get to meet some of the local celebrities that frequent the Hollywood Boulevard area. Lucy and Marilyn Monroe have been known to stop into the lounge from time to time, as well as Betty Boop and the whole gang from Mystery, Inc., including Scooby Doo and Shaggy. Just be sure to keep your free snacks away from those two!
The new Universal Orlando Annual Passholder Lounge is open daily from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. inside Universal Studios Florida. It is scheduled to be open now through Jan. 31st. The space has a limited capacity, and valid annual or seasonal passes are required for entry. The new lounge is yet another awesome perk of being an annual passholder, along with discounts on food and merchandise, special events and more. Don't forget to share your lounge experience on social media using the hashtag #UOAP!
