Buy Your Admission Tickets In Advance

Just like buying your tickets at the door for a popular concert, waiting to buy your Universal Studios admission tickets until you’re literally at the gate in Orlando is a bad idea.

On average, families who purchase admissions tickets through Universal Orlando online receive a $20 discount on multi-day passes. If you have multiple people in your party, this can add up to big savings quick!

Book An Orlando Vacation Rental Instead Of A Hotel

Our private Orlando vacation rental homes feature full kitchens where you can cook cost-effective meals, living areas complete with flat screen TVs and couches, and access to beautiful pools where kids can work out all that energy from being over-stimulated at Universal Studios all day!

A backpack makes it easy to bring extra layers in case the weather changes, sunscreen, water bottles, phone chargers, and other things you might have to buy if the need arises while you’re in the park. Backpacks and lockers are also a great place to stash some snacks that can help prevent you from buying fast food at a premium while inside the resort.
