Universal Studios Florida entrance

The Universal Orlando Resort has raised its ticket prices, following closely in the footsteps of local rival Walt Disney World.

The Orlando Sentinel reports that the cost of a one-day, one-park ticket will rise from $82 to $85 before tax, exactly matching the price of a similar ticket at Walt Disney World. However, as with Disney, prices for multi-day tickets were increased more steeply. For example, the price of a one-park, two-park ticket was increased by 10 percent to $175.99.

In a move designed to increase the number of tickets purchased via its website rather than at the gate, Universal Orlando has increased the discount available when buying online to $20. 7-day tickets will no longer be available, having been replaced by a 14-day option that includes entry to Universal Studios Florida, Islands of Adventure and the Wet 'n Wild water park on International Drive.

Florida residents will be unaffected by the price rises, with the cost of a one-day, one-park ticket remaining at $73.99. Annual Pass prices also remain unchanged.

Tickets for Universal Orlando's theme parks are also sold by independent resellers, often at a slight discount. Maple Leaf Tickets and Undercover Tourist both offer tickets for the resort.
