Hey peoples, long time reader first time poster. I'll be taking some teens to Orlando for a leadership conference in a couple of weeks and I wanted to know if there are any discounts for USF or even Sea World. As part of the conference we'll be spending about 5 hours at Universal/IOA, but that's not enough time for my kids (or myself.) Any suggestions?

Lorax, typically some of the fast food chains have a $10 off coupon, I'll try and see who's got one now (usually BK or Wendy's). I've been out of state for a bit ;), so I was hoping someone ELSE would answer you.
FL parks in general aren't really big on discounts, due mainly I believe to the amount of international visitors who are MORE than willing to pay full price...
Keep an eye on your PMs over the next week or so...:)

I guess it's not a "discount" per se, but Universal is still offering five-day tickets that get you into both parks for five days for $100
. It's an online-only deal.

I thought they still had the AAA annual passes for about that same price ($109 last time I checked IIRC).....and of course THAT would include parking, food and merch. discounts, and a whole YEAR full of fun...
Do remember to HEAP praise upon the single-rider lines, some important people read this stuff ya know...;)

When I went down there last year, I had used kissimmeeservices.com for my disney tickets. I just checked and there doesn't seem to be too much, if any, of a deal for Universal at the present time.

You might want to try mousesavers - They cover Universal as well as Disney...

Thanks guys for all the help. I work with "at-risk" or "underprivileged" (pick your term) kids at a non-profit agency, so I'm used to begging for donations or discounts.

You might try the annual power pass 119.95 as long as the dates you will be there are not blacked out.
even if you do not you may want to purchase an preferred annual pass for yourself for the discounts on anything your group purchases in the park.
If I were running the park I would give discounts for annual passes for groups like yours(youth groups/school bands/etc.) Because if one kid in a family has a pass to get in free for the next year he will bug his parents to take him back and they would purchase tickets/passes for rest of family

LOL Lorax, the program I work for deals with kids who are medically "at-risk" here in FL...we beg for donations EVERY year from the state, aka Jebenezer Scrooge...;)
As for non-profit, there's not much less profitable than a State job....:)

Too bad they have to be consecutive visits because that's a great deal... I just can't imagine spending five days at those two parks.
