Florida Trip Planning

Tuesday, April 2, 2002 8:54 AM
I just wanted some advice from the Florida locals or anyone who goes to the Orlando area a lot. I am going to Florida for ten days from the 9th to the 19th of June. We are staying in Orlando all of the nights but one when we drive to Tampa to go to BGT. We want to do BGT, all of Disney (but animal kingdom) all of Universal, Old Town, and a day in Kissimmie. I was just wondering if you guys had any adivce and where I could get discount tickets at for all of the parks.

I don't know why you wouldn't want to go to Animal Kingdom...They have good shows, walk- throughs and I hear their new coaster, although tame is a very good wild mouse. I enjoyed the park greatly.

My girlfriend's parents are taking Maria and I and for whatever reason they don't want to go there.

Well, the 14 day 5 park flex pass available at SWO, USF, IOA or BGT ticket booths is $200 and allows unlimited admission to SWO, USF, IOA, BGT, and Wet n Wild water park (for 14 days). I also have coupons from my work for $5.00 off single day SWO and BGT and $5.00 two day universal passes. Let me know if you'd like any of 'em.

If you're planning to make more than one trip to Florida, the USF/IOA Power Annual Pass is another option @ $99.95, but you might want to check the blackout dates (no summer weekends, New Years and some others).

If you were coming down in spring, you could combine the Power Pass with Busch Parks' Fun Card offers and have yearlong admission to 4 of the 5 parks for the same price as that 14-day pass...or substitute BGT's waterpark for Wet and Wild for $30 more. I'm taking a second Florida trip in October and have already paid all my park admissions.

Right now up until April 20th, there is an offer where you buy a full day admission to Busch Tampa and get a day at SeaWorld Orlando free, redeemable throughout the whole year. Maybe you can find a phone# or have someone buy them for you...

Thats a good idea but I'm the only one that is going to go to SWO so I can ride Kracken.

Yeah, but this is technically a buy one get one free offer. You can't lose. You can just buy the Busch pass for not much more than the regular admission, and get a whole day at SeaWorld free, no strings attatched.

Dan, I'm fairly sure that your trip to Old Town and your "day at Kissimmee" can be done on the same day. Beyond driving through Celebration and stopping at the occasional roadside attraction there's not much to it. If you're going on an airboat ride or something woodsy I understand, but Old Town is smack dab in the center of it all -- and it's hardly even a half-day kind of place.

Is there a reason why you're not hitting a water park? Even the most jaded of grown-ups would enjoy the lazy river and snorkeling at Typhoon Lagoon's reef.

As for discounts, well, Disney and Universal are sticklers about it -- though you'll find a booth on every block promising free or discounted one day tickets if you'll attend a timeshare seminar. Disney will sometimes float an offer like their $99 4 day pass, but it's usually restricted to Florida residents. Either way, your local AAA office (if you or Maria's parents are members) often have some small discounted tickets (like the USF-IOA annual pass for $99, sold through the end of May).
