Orlando Theme Park Ticket Offers
Exploring all the theme parks isn’t cheap even with some great deals specifically for the UK market. You can still save a little more money by following my tips below
Visiting Disney is never going to be cheap. The current UK exclusive ticket offering is Disney’s ‘Ultimate’ Ticket. Disney simplify their pricing with Ultimate tickets which include almost everything you need.
Universal & Seaworld
Visiting Universal and other parks in the Orlando area is cheaper the more parks you add but only if you are going to be making the most of your time in each of your chosen parks. Don’t add a park on “just in case”.
Legoland’s tickets are more simplified but quite expensive compared to the rest. You can add a ticket to others to create a bespoke package but without much discount. Tickets for Legoland are for one or two days maximum.
- Walt Disney World Ultimate Ticket 29% 29%
- Universal / Seaworld / Busch Gardens Combo 27% 27%
- Legoland 44% 44%
Relative Cost Of Visiting Orlando’s Theme parks
Finding the best value you need to figure out the daily cost of each theme park visit. When you break down the cost of each ticket package the most expensive park might surprise you.
Disney is the most expensive in terms of monetary cost, but depending on your time of visit can work out as low as £30 per day. If you want to visit every theme park a combo ticket package that includes Universal, Seaworld and Busch Gardens comes in a shade under Disney on a per-day cost making them the best value.
The most expensive park is currently Legoland because they only offer a 2-day park ticket where all other parks are based on 14 days unlimited entry. You are looking, on average, £45 per day to visit Legoland Florida.
Disney’s Ultimate Tickets
Disney’s Ultimate Tickets are expensive but no other theme park ticket gives you as much as these do
Multi Park Entry
Disney tickets are very expensive but they include a set amount of days admission to 4 world-class theme parks; Magic Kingdom, EPCOT, Hollywood Studios and Animal Kingdom. Two water parks, a round of golf and entry to Wide World Of Sports is also included as standard.
Fastpass+ & Magic Your Way Built In
UK tickets have Fastpass+ and Memory Maker service included. Reserve your spot on favourite attractions up to 60 days in advance. Ride photos, Disney Photopass and dining photos are stored in a digital vault for you to download when you arrive home. The separate cost for Fastpass+ and Memory Maker is $199 for US tickets.
All UK tickets allow park hopping as standard. This allows you to start off your day in one park before heading to another. Very handy if you want to spend a chilled day in a waterpark before catching the nightly fireworks in another park.
Free Disney Resort Transport
UK tickets allow unlimited use of the Disney World transportation system for as long as the ticket is valid. This includes monorail, buses, ferries and Disney’s very own cable car system. US-based tickets need to have the park hopper extension to be able to use these. Disney transport is a very handy way of getting around if you don’t want to drive.
Other Park Tickets
Many ticket brokers bundle other theme parks together into one price. The name will vary but Flexiticket is popular because of a historical product that did exactly this but is sadly no longer available. The more parks you add the cheaper the cost of daily entry becomes.
Other parks may not have a lot of the perks of Disney’s Ultimate Ticket package without paying extra but they makes up for a lack of perks with all out adrenaline. Pound for pound you won’t find more adrenaline that you can get with this ticket package.
The Flexiticket can encompass up to 6 parks spread between 2 giants of the themed entertainment business, Universal Parks And Resorts & Seaworld Parks And Entertainment. You can opt to take some parks out to make the tickets cheaper.
The 6 parks that can be included are:
- Universal Studios Florida
- Universal’s Islands Of Adventure
- Universal’s Volcano Bay
- Seaworld Adventure Park Orlando
- Aquatica By Seaworld
- Busch Gardens Tampa Bay
Flexiticket may be light on perks compared to Disney but it stands out as one of the best value theme park tickets anywhere
14 days consecutive admission for the price of little more than 3 days on a standard ticket. Throw in free parking at 2 of the 4 main parks and free transport to Busch Gardens, this ticket is hard to beat.
Free Parking At Seaworld & Busch Gardens
Free parking with UK Seaworld & Busch Gardens tickets saves $20/day with this new perk which can add up to a nice saving for repeated visits.
14 Consecutive Days
Don’t worry about how many days you have used and how many you have left. You are issued separate tickets for that have 14 consecutive days unlimited admission.
