arrangements are subject to air travel, holiday, blackout dates, and other prize and travel
restrictions. Travel dates are subject to Universal Orlando and Sponsor approval. Reservations are

and any remainder of the Prize will be forfeited and shall not be subject to further or alternative
compensation. All elements of the Prize must be redeemed at the same time, and no changes will
be permitted after confirmation of any redemption. If Winner is between the ages of eighteen (18)
and twenty-one (21), he/she must be accompanied by an adult of at least twenty-one (21) years of
age in order to check into the hotel. Unless child or ward of Winner or one of the allotted Guests,
each Guest must be eighteen (18) years of age or older as of the date of departure and must travel
on the same itinerary and at the same time as the Winner. The Fair Market Value (“FMV”) of
Prize may vary depending upon the points of departure, ground transportation, and/or airline fare
fluctuations; any difference between ARV and final FMV of Prize will not be awarded. Prize
consists only of the elements expressly set forth above; no other elements or expenses (including,
without limitation, insurance, meals, unspecified ground transportation, phone calls, baggage,
gratuities, incidentals, souvenirs, gasoline, etc.) are included in the Prize and all such expenses are
the sole responsibility of Winner. Winner is responsible for any air travel taxes and/or expenses,
including applicable departure taxes or fees, inspection charges, baggage fees, and security
charges. Winner and Guests are responsible for obtaining, at their own expense, any necessary
travel documentation (i.e. valid photo identification, visas, passports, etc.) prior to travel, and
failure to do so will result in forfeiture of the Prize. Once issued, tickets are non-refundable and
nontransferable and may not be reissued once travel has commenced. Open tickets may not be
issued and stopovers are not permitted. Travel arrangements must be made through Universal
Orlando.
In connection with any visit to Universal Orlando Resort, please be advised that Universal’s
policies, CDC guidelines, and the recommendations of health officials must be followed. In
addition, guests should be aware of and comply with government guidelines regarding travel
restrictions and mandatory quarantines before visiting any Universal destination. Please note that
any public location where people are present provides an inherent risk of exposure to
COVID-19, and Universal cannot guarantee that any person will not be exposed during a
visit.
Universal Orlando and Sponsors will not replace any lost or stolen tickets, travel vouchers or
certificates. All airline tickets are subject to flight variation, work stoppages, and schedule or route
changes. Sponsor and Universal Orlando shall not be responsible for any cancellations, delays,
diversions or substitution or any act or omissions whatsoever by the air carriers, hotels, venue
4
operators, transportation companies, prize providers or any other persons providing any Prize-
related services or accommodations. Sponsors shall have the right, but not the obligation, to make
any deductions and withholdings that Sponsors deem necessary or desirable under applicable
federal, state and local tax laws, rules, regulations, codes or ordinances.
All parts of the Prize are subject to availability and blackout dates, and subject to change or
cancellation without written notice or warning. Should an act of God, hurricane, war, fire, riot,
earthquake, act of public enemies, actions of governmental authorities, epidemics, pandemics and
the spread of infectious diseases, including without limitation COVID-19 (as defined by the World
Health Organization and any of the strains, variants or mutations thereof), and any related
governmental or judicial actions, including but not limited to travel restrictions, taken in
connection with, or as a response to, any such event, or any other event beyond the reasonable
control of a party, whether or not existing, known, foreseen or foreseeable at the time this
Sweepstakes occurs, render the redemption or fulfilment of all or a portion of the Prize delayed,
hindered, adversely affected, impracticable, or impossible, Sponsors/Universal Orlando in their
sole and absolute discretion, reserve the right to evaluate, make modifications to, and restructure
the redemption and fulfilment processes and timelines for the Prize, or portion thereof, that
Sponsors/Universal Orlando are responsible for, which may include, but is not limited to,
providing additional time for redemption and/ or fulfilment. Sponsors/Universal Orlando may
modify and/or restructure the Prize or portions thereof to comply with government orders or
guidelines and Sponsors’ and/or Universal Orlando’s health and safety requirements. Should the
Prize, or a portion thereof, become unavailable, Sponsors/Universal Orlando shall make
reasonable efforts to provide Winner with substitute experiences and/or items of a similar nature
and value for that portion of the Prize that is unavailable. If no substitute prizing is reasonably
available then the remaining components, if any, of the Prize shall constitute full satisfaction of
Sponsors’/Universal Orlando’s Prize obligation to Winner, and no other or additional
compensation will be awarded.
Guests, if any, may be required to execute and return releases of liability and, where legal, publicity
releases (collectively, “Guest Documents”), which must be returned with the Sweepstakes
Documents, or Guest portion of the Prize will be forfeited. If any Guest is a minor, Winner or one
of the other Guests must be such minor’s parent or legal guardian and must execute and return the
Guest Documents on such minor’s behalf.
