Universal Orlando® Resort is one of the most popular theme parks in Orlando, Florida. As such, ticket prices can be a bit pricey – especially during certain seasons throughout the year. Instead of paying top dollar for amusement park admission, check out the best ways to take advantage of Universal Orlando ticket discounts. After all, who doesn’t love to save money on theme park tickets?
Understanding the New Ticket Prices
Universal Orlando® Resort has been experimenting with a seasonal pricing model for quite some time. Recently, the theme park implemented this brand new pricing strategy for 1-day park tickets. This strategy aims to regulate attendance in the theme parks and provide a better customer experience for all guests. Ticket prices for 1-day admission are now based on three different season categories — Peak, Regular, and Value.
As a result, peak dates cost more while value tickets offer great savings for guests. One day, park-to-park tickets for both Universal Studios and Islands of Adventure are also subject to the new ticket pricing structure. Tickets must be used during their corresponding seasons:
- Peak tickets are valid during any season.
- Regular tickets are valid during regular and value season dates.
- Value tickets are only valid during value season dates.
If you purchase one season and prefer to use it on a different season date, you can upgrade your tickets at the theme park entry gates. On the other hand, keep in mind that refunds for using a Peak ticket during a Regular or Valid season date are not possible.

On average, the seasonal ticket prices for 1-day at Universal Studios and/or Islands of Adventure are as follows:

Purchase Multi-Day Tickets
Another way to save with Universal Orlando ticket discounts is to purchase a multi-day ticket. This ticket type permits entry into the parks for 2 to 4 days, depending on your selection. To maximize vacation time and still stay within budget, I’d recommend purchasing a multi-day pass.
During peak season, a 1-Day, 1-Park ticket is $119 per adult, $114 per child. A “One Park Per Day”, 2-day pass is $184.99 per adult and $174.99 per child. This allows you to visit Universal Studios one day and Islands of Adventure the next all while saving money. As a result, the more days you visit, the more savings you receive.
Do keep in mind that park-to-park passes are required to ride the Hogwarts Express between Universal Studios and Islands of Adventure.
