If you are a regular annual pass holder for Universal
Studios Tours, there are certain blackout dates
when you cannot visit the park unless you pay for a
one day full priced ticket for the blackout date. Not
being aware of these dates may cause you
problems, so make sure you know when they are!
In 2006, there are no blackout dates during the
months of January through June, and no blackout
dates in October. Every Saturday and Sunday are
blacked out for July and August. Additionally, July
3rd and 4th are blackout dates. September 2nd and
3rd, November 24th and 25th, and December 26th,
27th, 28th, 29th, 30th, and 31st are all blacked out.
Additionally, the park is closed on Thanksgiving
Day and Christmas Day. If you are a regular annual
pass holder, either upgrade to a premium or deluxe
annual pass, or avoid the Universal Studios Tours
on these dates so that you will not have to pay the
full one day price – which costs almost as much
as a regular annual ticket!
