Universal Orlando help needed

Monday, May 19, 2003 4:12 AM
I'm visiting Orlando from the UK for the first time in many years this fall. We're staying on-site at Universal. Does a hotel stay include entrance to both parks (a la Disney) or do I need to purchase park tickets separately? If the latter is the case, what's the best option likely to be?

Many thanks

Check Universals web site for their current deals. There are various packages.

rollergator's avatar I *think* it depends on the hotel package you purchase....JUST staying in the on-site hotel doesn't necessarily include admission, if I understand correctly. Not that we've ever stayed on-site, since it's not that long of a drive home...;) But, it (the hotel keycard) DOES give the front-of-the-line access...

Even the regular Universal Express is a darn fine system....and it's (gasp!) FREE....;)

Theres different vacation packages you can get that include park tickets. I believe you can view them over at www.universalorlando.com . You don't have to purchase a package though, you can just get a room and then buy a two day pass. The best part is you can go between the parks as much as you want, and by flashing you room card you get front of the line access to all the rides all day long. It's an awesome system, the only problem is you kind of miss out on the story setup for a few of the rides.

I noticed you said you would be going in the fall, do you know the dates? Halloween Horror Nights may be going on, which is something that can't be passed up.

This probably won't help but I went to a mall in New Hampshire and there you could could go to spencers(a universal store) and buy tickets eventhough it is hundreds miles away and they charge you a service fee. Im not sure if it still lasts.
