The Universal Orlando Resort has increased ticket prices for Universal Studios Florida and Islands of Adventure, becoming the first Florida resort to break the $90 barrier.
A one-day, one-park base ticket is now priced at $92 before tax, an increase of $3. The price of a one-day, two-park ticket has risen to $128 (from $124), although a 3-day park-to-park ticket is priced at $146.99 - making multi-day visits much better value. This aims to encourage longer visits from Orlando tourists, who often spend much of their time at Walt Disney World, making shorter visits to Universal Orlando's parks and SeaWorld Orlando.
Walt Disney World, SeaWorld Orlando and Busch Gardens Tampa are likely to follow with their own price rises for summer 2013 in the next few weeks. In previous years, Universal has waited for Disney to raise prices before following suit, but its increased popularity led it to break that pattern last year.
Tickets for both resorts are also sold by independent resellers. Check our tickets advice page for details, and our special offers database for the latest limited-time deals.
