To me, I wouldn't buy this. Why? If you buy it at the ticket booth for $84, you will get a free bring a guest ticket on your Birthday month if you sign up your annual pass through Universal Annual Pass website.
In addition to your free birthday gift, you also get to bring a free guest ticket per household. But that's only limited to one more household.
I have had an annual pass on and off for a several years, and have been getting a free bring a guest on my Birthday.
That's why I love Universal Studios Hollywood because of the deal. And also because it's so small and cozy. I would just go there for a few hours just to relax. I would go there just to watch a movie and then visit the park because parking is just $2 with parking rebate.
