Universal Studios continues with all-day restaurant pass


UNIVERSAL CITY, Calif. -- Universal Studios Hollywood is continuing its popular All You Can Eat ... All Day Long program, which started this summer.

The passes can be bought at the ticket booths or at the restaurants that accept the passes: Mels Diner, Louies Pizza and Pasta and Jurassic Cove Cafe.

The passes are $19.95 for adults and $11.95 for children 48 inches tall or less.

The park, which introduced its Fear Factor Live show and Revenge of the Mummy roller-coaster this summer, continues to offer another pass, the Front-of-Line pass, which is commissionable to travel agents.

The pass offers guests reserved seating at all shows and admission to features of popular attractions that are closed to other guests, such as a chance to meet the animals and their trainers at the Animal Planet Live show.

The passes are sold in limited numbers and often sell out, said a spokeswoman for Universal Studios Hollywood.

This gives travel agents a commissionable service to sell. Because they often sell out, agents can tell clients the only way to guarantee that they will get one is to go through the agent to buy it in advance, she said.

The price of the Front-of-Line pass is $89.95 or $99.95, depending on the season. Commission is 10%.

Agents can call a Universal sales manager at (818) 622-9528 for information on selling the Front-of-Line passes.
