Universal Studios Tickets

With so many things to do in Orlando for all ages and personalities, it's no wonder Orlando is a popular vacation destination. Theme parks abound in Orlando, but one of the most popular Orlando theme parks that vacationers like to visit is Universal Studios. Since the cost of theme parks can quickly force the price of your Orlando vacation upward, take some time to research the options for Universal Studios tickets and for other parks you may wish to visit.

As you begin piecing together your Orlando vacation itinerary, deciding which Orlando theme park tickets to buy is an important step. To start, get familiar with the basics. You can buy Universal Studios tickets in person at the park, but you will not find discount tickets to Universal Studios Florida there. You can also get them as part of a vacation package through your hotel. Prices vary depending on the age of the visitor—the two categories are ages 3 to 9, and ages 10 and older.

You have many different choices for your Universal Studios tickets. You can purchase a ticket to either Universal Studios Florida or Universal's Islands of Adventure theme park for one day only. You can also purchase a one- or two-day ticket to both Universal Studios Florida and Universal's Islands of Adventure theme park. Or look into a weeklong pass to both parks, which may also include all-club access to Universal CityWalk's entertainment venues. A weeklong pass generally needs to be purchased at least two days in advance.

For those who plan to return within the year, a great option for discount tickets to Universal Studios Florida is purchasing an annual pass. Then you'll have Universal Studios and Islands of Adventure tickets for a full year.

You can also find discount tickets to Universal Studios Florida by purchasing an Orlando vacation package. Many of the Orlando hotels offer discounted tickets when purchased at the same time as your hotel stay. If there aren't vacation packages listed for a particular hotel you want to stay at, don't be afraid to call the hotel directly and find out if tickets are available.

Another popular way to find Universal Studio Tickets and Islands of Adventure tickets is through an Orlando vacation package called the Orlando FlexTicket. This ticket is designed for the travelers that want to visit several different kinds of theme parks. It provides unlimited admission to Universal Studios, Islands of Adventure, Sea World, Aquatica, and Wet 'n Wild for one person, for fourteen consecutive days.

No matter how much time you wish to stay at the theme parks, it can pay to research ahead of time. You won't find deals by showing up to buy your Universal Studios and Islands of Adventure tickets at the park entrance, so plan ahead and buy them in advance. Then you'll also be sure you're getting the right package for the combination of parks you want to visit.
