Power Pass AP Blackout Question

Have the AP's always been blacked out the whole month of July? If I would have noticed that, I would not have purchased them last August with the intention of using them again this summer. Starting to worry about what to do (we already booked our flight).

Thanks in advance.

I did a little googling, and it *looks like* it's only for the Studios, that IOA is still open to you? (probably b/c of Transformers).

More googling:

2012 blackout dates for the Universal Power Pass:

March 31 through April 14 (Islands of Adventure and Universal Studios)
July 2 through 14 (Islands of Adventure only)
December 26-31 (both parks)
2011:

Blackout dates
For IOA:
April 16-30
July 1-Aug. 13

For USF:
Jan 1
Dec 26-31


So it seems like it moves around.

Any chance of upgrading to a Preferred?

The black out dates coincide with the opening of Transformers and to a certain extent, Springfield (Simpsons area) at the Studios.

They're always blacked out in July at IOA, but instead USF is getting the blackout because of Transformers and Springfield.
