Pass Member Tips: Top 5 Season Pass Member BenefitsJanuary 13, 2019
My favorite benefit hands down is free parking. I go very frequently, and I wouldn't be able to if I had to pay parking on top of food & merchandise. Free parking is KEY. (I have the Platinum Pass, which includes FREE General and Preferred Parking*. Parking benefits change with each pass level, but it's my TOP benefit. I'll always go for a pass that includes free parking.)
I personally upgraded my son and I to the top tier pass, Platinum, JUST to get into all parks**, including Busch Gardens (Williamsburg and Tampa Bay), SeaWorld and Aquatica Parks (Orlando, San Antonio, and San Diego), Water Country USA and Adventure Island. That was a big draw for me purchasing the Platinum Pass; it’s the only pass level with this benefit.
I LOVE the ride again privilege that comes with it! Not the top reason I got the Platinum Pass, BUT it definitely is a huge perk. Show your Platinum Pass before your first ride, and ride again without waiting in line.***
Another TOP benefit is the discounts on food and merchandise. All passes include an in-park discount, but the Platinum Pass includes 25% off all food, drinks, and merchandise. It is awesome and allows me to eat & buy merchandise almost every time we go.
Meet & Greets
I love the VIP Character Meet and Greet that comes with the higher up Silver, Gold, and Platinum Passes****. It takes place in Sesame Place Neighborhood Theater, so you get great background shots! You get to take a great group shot with everyone's favorite Sesame Street friends which you can't do anywhere else in the park!
