The Travel Mom Shares Tips for Saving Money & Time at Universal Orlando Resort
When it comes to visiting Universal Orlando, guests are interested in how they can make the most of their time in the parks and make their dollar stretch. Over the years in working with and visiting Universal Orlando, I have learned some tips on how to do both! These suggestions will give you more time in the parks and help you get the most bang for your buck:
Print Your Tickets Ahead
Before you even leave home, you can save time by printing out your park admission tickets ahead of your visit. By doing this, you go right to the front gate and start enjoying the fun inside.
If early access to The Wizarding World of Harry Potter or staying within walking distance of the theme parks are benefits that sound appealing to your family, consider staying at one of Universal Orlando’s four on-site hotels. Guests at these resorts get special perks that include admission into the parks an entire hour earlier than opening time, complimentary delivery of merchandise to your hotel room, and a host of other benefits —you can learn more over here.
Stick to a Budget
Sticking to a budget can be challenging when visiting theme parks. However, Universal Orlando has a few options to make it easier. The saying “the longer you stay, the less you pay” is certainly true here.
If you choose to buy multi-day park tickets, the price of daily admission drops significantly. Plus, it lets you slow down your pace and return to the attractions you enjoyed the most.
Buy your multi-day tickets online to save $20 and receive a coupon book with resort-wide savings of $150.
If you are staying on-site, you can use the free transportation or walkways to go back and forth. Plan your day how you’d like without worrying about a car rental or taxi fares.
There is also the Universal Dining Plan that helps you stay within a budget by pre-planning for your meals and snacks in the park.
Use a Universal Express Pass
If you’d like to skip the regular lines at most attractions, you should look into a Universal Express Pass. It’s available for purchase or is included for free when you stay at one of Universal Orlando’s three deluxe on-site hotels.
Use these suggestions to get even more out of your Universal Orlando Resort vacation and have a great time!
