SGA says they plan on having a ballpark of 12,000 tickets for this year’s event at Islands of Adventure.

All tickets will be distributed with an event wrist band. Both the ticket and wrist band are needed for admission into the event and the wristband must be worn at all times. If you lose your wristband or ticket, you will NOT be permitted into the event. If your wristband was stapled to your ticket at the time of pick-up, keep them stapled together until you arrive to the event to prevent lost wristbands. You must put your wristband on prior to arriving at the gate.

SGA will also have a new advanced ticket distribution system for students to pick up tickets. Students will have the ability to pre-register for a designated time slot to pick-up tickets ahead of time. Click here to sign up for a time slot.

Another great addition to Universal Knights this year will be a shuttle service that will take students between UCF main campus and Universal Studios. Register for a time slot by clicking here.
