How to Save Money on Universal Orlando Tickets
Saving Money Doesn’t Require a Magic Wand
Universal Orlando (and especially Harry Potter world) is fun! |
But it can be expensive and I'm addicted to saving money whenever I can!
I've done a lot of research on how to save money on Universal Orlando tickets. Here's what I can share:
Is it Possible to Get Discounted Universal Orlando Tickets?
Yes! You CAN save money on Universal Orlando tickets … if you know where to go and what to buy.
My First Tip: Go for More than Just One Day
There’s so much to see and do at Disneyland that just one day doesn’t cut it.
Personally, I think that 3 days is about perfect, but that depends on your appetite for all things Disney, your budget, the age of your kids, and so on.
Three days gives you a chance to experience the shows, parades, all of the attractions at both parks, all at a relaxed and reasonable pace.
Also, one day tickets are almost never discounted.
The more days you stay, the more you save. No surprise there.
Types of Universal Orlando Tickets
I always recommend getting the Park Hopper, as the parks are both awesome and they’re 100 yards apart from each other.
A Park Hopper ticket allows you to go back and forth between Disneyland® Park or Disney California Adventure® park on the same day.
Pick one park (Disneyland Park or Disney California Adventure) and enjoy it all day long.
Get one early admission to certain attractions, stores, shows, and dining at Disneyland Park one hour before the park opens to the general public. Available on select days only (currently Tuesday, Thursday and Saturday). Magic Morning is available only with a 3+ day ticket or Southern California CityPASS.
Let’s Compare Universal Orlando Ticket Prices
Below we’ll compare prices found on Universal Orlando’s website and two authorized ticket resellers that you can trust: Undercover Tourist and aRes Travel.
Why I Recommend aRes Travel
aRes Travel was something of a hidden secret for me until recently. I’ve used them multiple times now. I’ve even talked to executives of their company and I’m converted.
They’re a legit, authorized Disneyland ticket reseller with great customer service. You’re safe to purchase from them in confidence. For more reassurance, read this TripAdvisor thread (there are a lot more like it on TripAdvisor too).
Note: aRes Travel collects a $2 per ticket service fee.
Disclosure: If you buy tickets through the aRes Travel links, I get a small commission. It’s not much but it helps keep the website running and doesn’t cost you any extra. You don’t have to use my links, but I’m very thankful when you do. I recommend them not because of the commission but because I use them myself.
Do NOT Buy Disneyland Tickets from These Places
With so many people wanting to know how to save money on Disneyland tickets, it’s no surprise that there are plenty of places trying to scam those people out of their money.
Avoid these places when buying Disneyland park tickets:
- Any site that uses the word “Disney” in the URL (that isn’t clearly a Disney-owned site). Disney doesn’t allow its authorized ticket sellers to use their brand in their website URL.
- Any broker selling 1-day tickets at a discount. Disney doesn’t allow this by its authorized sellers.
- Anyone selling you partially used tickets. First of all, you can’t be sure if the pass will work until you arrive at the gate. Second, if the ticket does NOT work, Disney won’t help you because tickets are non-transferrable.
- Craigslist & eBay. Scammers will try to sell you stolen or used tickets.
- Any site requiring you to pay with any method other than credit card.
