    * The Wednesday night jam and festivities are for Full Pass Holders only, not single-day or show pass holders, as our seating is limited to slightly more than the amount of Full Pass-Holders. However, if you are attending with a spouse or significant other who is staying in your room and is not a passholder, you may also bring them, if seats are available. Historically that percentage is around 5% so we should be able to accommodate them. Feel free to email playuke@playuke.net with any questions.
