We recently showed you how to navigate crowds and lines to maximize your next Universal Orlando Resort vacation. Now we’re about to tell you about saving big. Follow these pro-tips to end up with a little more spending money in your pocket.
Purchase your tickets online in advance
Not only does this save you time at the front gate, but you can get $20 off the gate price on all multi-day tickets. All you have to do is print your tickets at home and head straight to the turnstiles.
Stay on property to get free transportation to and from the parks
There’s nothing better than being close to the action and saving on transportation. Take a relaxing boat ride or hop on the shuttle bus instead. You can even walk from many of our Universal Orlando Hotels to get your daily steps in; they’re that close. And if you’re looking for transportation to and from the airport, you can add Universal’s SuperStar Shuttle to your vacation package.
Stay on property to get free Universal Express Access
Once again, you can skip the regular lines at all participating rides and attractions with Express access. Stay at one of the three Universal Orlando Hotels that offer this benefit to everyone in your party and enjoy the ease of shorter wait times.
Park for free at Universal CityWalk after 6 p.m.
If you’re looking for a night on the town, no need to worry about the cost of parking. Just pull up to Universal CityWalk after 6 p.m. and you’re good to go.
Save on meals with a dining plan
A dining plan packages drinks, meals and snacks together. You can fill up throughout your trip for one low price. Click here to see the different dining plans available.
Stay hydrated and full with refills
It’s easy to keep thirst at bay. Coca-Cola freestyle cups are refillable, so you can enjoy multiple beverages throughout your day. Or if it’s water you need, that is also available to any pre-charged cup.
Plus, don’t forget the popcorn! Popcorn buckets are refillable for only $1.29 plus tax.
Become a Universal Orlando Annual Passholder
If you love coming to Universal Orlando (and who doesn’t?), the best value you can find is our Annual and Seasonal Passes. With 6 different kinds of passes, it’s easy to find one that works for you and your family. Not to mention the great benefits and discounts associated with your pass.
