Free Day to Play

Take a FREE day to play in the parks with every 2-Day pass booked at Universal Orlando. When you purchase a 2-day, park-to-park ticket (currently $175.99/adult plus tax), you’ll receive access to both Universal Orlando theme parks for a total of THREE days. You could spend one day in the Wizarding World meeting Harry Potter’s friends, sampling Butterbeer, and selecting a wand in Diagon Alley and Hogsmeade. Take another day for high thrill attractions like The Hulk and Transformers: The Ride 3D, and a third day to immerse yourself in whimsical worlds like Dr. Seuss and The Simpsons. Discount valid for purchase until June 7, 2015 and must be used in full by June 20, 2015.
Discounted Vacation Package

Take that 2-Day, park-to-park ticket (with 3rd Day Free), and add a stay at Universal Orlando’s kitschy fun Cabana Bay Beach Resort, starting at $425/adult (tax included). Staying at any one of Universal Orlando’s four on-site hotels provides early admission to The Wizarding World of Harry Potter (Hogsmeade and Diagon Alley) one hour before the theme parks open to regular guests. This is a great way to get in to see these fantastically themed areas before the crowds arrive.
“Take 2” Transfer
Want to combine a Walt Disney World spring vacation with a visit to Universal Orlando? There are currently Sensational Disney World Discounts for Spring 2015, and you can use the “Take 2” Transfer to combine worlds. This special shuttle will pick you up at Walt Disney World and transfer you to any of Universal Orlando’s on-site hotels (like Cabana Bay Beach, Loews Portofino Bay Hotel and Hard Rock Hotel Universal). After your visit to Universal Orlando Resort, the shuttle transfer will take you back to Orlando International Airport. The itinerary can also be reversed if you’d prefer to start your vacation at Universal Orlando, shuttle to Walt Disney World, and transfer back to the airport. This “Take 2” Transfer is available for only $39/person.
