With the introduction of the 2009 All Access Pass, a new concept for theme park annual passes, Universal Studios Hollywood will roll out a red carpet for repeat visitors, providing an unprecedented array of perks, privileges and discounts for just $5.00 more than the price of a single-day admission.

Other "hassle free" highlights of the "2009 All Access Pass" includes Universal Studios Hollywood unprecedented "Umbrella Policy" which takes the barometer and weather forecast guesswork from the theme park equation. With "The World’s First-Ever Theme Park Guaranteed Rain Check, " guests visiting Universal Studios Hollywood will receive a rain check ticket valid for use any time in the following 30 days on a day that the park receives over 1/8" of rainfall by 2:00 p.m. Plus, on rainy days, guests will be provided with complimentary coffee and hot chocolate at designated covered and indoor rest areas.
