 The ticket holder may visit one of two parks on any given day: either Universal Studios Florida or Universal’s Islands of Adventure. These passes do not enable the passholder to visit both parks on the same day. 

 
Ticket guidelines state that the pass holder must begin using the pass by Aug. 27, with the pass fully expiring on Aug. 31. After Aug. 31, any remaining days on the pass are forfeited. The pass holder has seven calendar days in which to use the five total admission days allotted.
