Universal Orlando Resort has been on quite the streak recently when it comes to limited-time deals, introducing additional months for annual pass buyers, a buy-one-get-most-of-2020 free ticket deal for Florida residents, two days free for non-residents, and of course making plenty of in park discounts available for merchandise and food. And now it looks like guests could save even more on a Universal Orlando Resort visit as it has rolled out a new date-based ticket system, similar to the one at Walt Disney World where the day you go determines price, but instead of this new system making most days more expensive, it looks like guests could actually visit for less under most circumstances!
You'll pay less on value days than current pricing
Under Universal's new dynamic pricing model guests will need to check Universal's official calendar for prices on any given day. Based on the current calendar, here are some of the ranges for a two-day ticket:
- A two-day, one-park per day ticket will cost between $110 and $124 per day for non-Florida residents. For reference, the previous price for this ticket was $117.50 per day, which means a substantial savings for guests who visit during the value period. For Florida residents, the pricing falls even lower to between $90 and $99 per day.
- A two-day, park-to-park ticket will cost between $140 and $154 per day for non-Florida residents. For reference, the previous price for this ticket was $147.50 per day, which again means a substantial savings for guests who visit during the value period. For Florida residents, the price range is between $114 and $120 per day.
You can view price ranges single day tickets as well as other multi-day options (plus Volcano Bay add-ons) at Universal's official ticketing site here.
Right now it looks like most low-cost visit dates are in August and September, with prices creeping back up in October, November and December closer to the higher end of the spectrum. But we'd guess that as Universal gets a clearer picture in the coming weeks of how attendance will look towards the end of the year, these trends could change.
It is worth noting also that these ticket prices do not apply to promotional offers. So for instance the 2-Park, 2-Day plus 2 Days Free Promotional Ticket (which can be purchased right now for $278.99 and is good for the rest of 2020)
