Types of Universal Studios Orlando Discount Tickets 2023

The most important factors to consider when shopping for 2023 Universal Studios ticket discounts are the differences between the Universal 2-Park tickets and 3-Park tickets, and also base tickets vs park-to-park.  Guests looking to take advantage of shorter wait times might also consider Universal Orlando Express Pass Combo Tickets. These tickets are the equivalent of a bundle and save deal which will include an unlimited express pass for each admission day in the parks.  The cost of Universal Studios Orlando discount tickets is divided into two age groups. Adults ages 10+, and kids ages 3-9 while children under 3 get in for free. 
things-to-do-at-universal-studios

Universal Orlando Base Tickets

A Universal Orlando Base ticket gives you access to one park per day. 

Special Note: Base tickets do NOT give you access to the Hogwarts Express. However base tickets are usually the cheapest discount ticket to Universal Orlando. 

Universal Orlando Park-to-Park Tickets

A Universal Orlando Park-to-Park ticket gives you the flexibility to go between the parks each day of your visit.

Special Note: Park-to-Park tickets do give you access to the Hogwarts Express.

Picking The Right Discount Universal Ticket - Base Tickets Vs. Park-to-Park

Universal Base Ticket Pros

The Universal Orlando base ticket is the perfect ticket for families who would like to take their time exploring one theme park per day. We also find it to be a better fit for families with small children so that you don’t have to worry about traveling between parks with the little ones. 

As a general rule of thumb, the base tickets are always going to be the cheapest Universal Orlando ticket option when compared to the park-to-park tickets. 

Universal Base Ticket Cons

It’s important to note that the Universal Orlando base ticket will not allow guests to ride on the Hogwarts Express. It’s also not the best fit for families who are only visiting Universal Orlando for one day precisely for the Wizarding World of Harry Potter. The main reason being the Wizarding World of Harry Potter is split between both Islands of Adventure theme park and Universal Studios Florida.  

hogwarts-express-universal-faw

Universal Park-to-Park Ticket Pros

The Universal Orlando park-to-park ticket is the perfect fit for families who want the ultimate flexibility within their day to visit more than one theme park. For this reason, we find it to be the perfect ticket for families with older kids and teens who would like to enjoy longer days in the parks. 

The Universal Orlando park-to-park ticket also includes the Hogwarts express. For this reason, we find the one day, two-park park-to-park ticket to be the perfect fit for families who are only visiting Universal Orlando to visit The Wizarding World of Harry Potter. 

Universal Park-to-Park Ticket Cons

As a general rule of thumb, the Universal Orlando park-to-park ticket is always going to be more expensive than the base ticket. 

Universal Orlando: 2-Park Tickets

2-Park Tickets include Universal Studios Florida and/or Universal Islands of Adventure. 

Universal Orlando: 3-Park Tickets

3-Park Tickets include Universal Studios Florida and/or Universal Islands of Adventure and/or Universal’s Volcano Bay water park.

The Wizarding World of Harry Potter Orlando Discount Tickets ​

cheap-universal-orlando-tickets

Another one of the most common questions we receive is, is Harry Potter World a separate ticket? And it’s important to note that Universal does not sell specific Wizarding World of Harry Potter tickets.  

It is also important to note that The Wizarding World of Harry Potter is split between two lands within Islands of Adventure and Universal Studios Florida. So it’s essential to have a 2-Park ticket if you are trying to visit both Harry Potter lands. And last but not least, guests who plan to ride the Hogwarts Express will need to buy a park-to-park ticket. So, depending on what your plans are this is one of the rare cases where the cheapest Universal Orlando ticket might not be the best fit for you.  

Hogsmeade Village - Islands of Adventure ​

harry-potter-rides

In Universal’s Islands of Adventure you’ll walk side- by-side with super heroes, beasts and magical creatures to enter lands where imagination is real.

Also home to two of the most popular Universal Orlando rides in Hagrid’s Magical Motorbike Adventure and Harry Potter and the Forbidden Journey. You’ll want to make sure to take advantage of Early Park Admission here when possible! 

Diagon Alley - Universal Studios​

At Universal Studios Florida, you’re the star— experiencing one jaw-dropping adventure after another. Dodge evil villains. Defend the earth. Wander into animated worlds. Go beyond the screen, behind the scenes and jump into the action of your favorite Wizarding World of Harry Potter films. 

Guests can face a fire-breathing dragon, and explore everything Diagon Alley has to offer! 

Understanding the Universal Orlando Extras

Now that you understand all of the options for discount tickets to Universal Studios Orlando, there are a few add-ons that you might want to take advantage of to save time and money while in the parks.

This can save you hours in the parks later in the day and be a massive game-changer for everyone looking to purchase discount 2023 Universal Orlando park-to-park tickets.

The Park Prodigy takes pride in fast customer service and is recognized as a top performer in the travel industry. Plus, you will gain access to the best deals on cheap Universal Orlando tickets! 

How to Get Cheap Universal Tickets 2023?

Another very popular question we receive is, how do I get the best deals on Universal Orlando tickets? And as a general rule of thumb we find that making sure you are purchasing the right fit ticket, buying your tickets in advance online, and buying them from the right ticket seller are the three most important factors when trying to get the best price Universal Orlando tickets. However as you’ll see below there are different opportunities for every style and budget to make sure you are getting the best deals on Universal tickets. 

#1 Always Buy Your Universal Orlando Tickets in Advance Vs the Park Gates

One of the most popular questions we receive is, is it cheaper to buy Universal tickets at the gate? And in general guests will always save the most money when buying their Universal Orlando tickets in advance online Vs at the park gates. This makes no difference if you plan to buy your tickets directly from the Universal Orlando website or from a discount Universal Orlando ticket seller like Theparkprodigy.com. 

#2 Take Advantage of the Validity Window on Multi-day tickets

Another one of the cheapest ways to get universal tickets is take advantage of the expiration windows. Here’s how it works. All multi-day Universal Orlando tickets come with expiration windows of 5 -8 days from the selected start window. However you do not have to use your first day in the parks on the first day of your start window. So if you are planning to visit Universal Orlando for two days on a Tuesday and Thursday you have flexibility on your start date. If tickets starting on that Monday are cheaper you can purchase those tickets. Just make sure that you use all admission days before your tickets expire. 

#3 Always Purchase Multi-day tickets when visiting for more than one day

This might seem like an obvious way to save money when trying to decide how to get cheap tickets to Universal however it’s important to note that multi-day tickets will always be cheaper then buying tickets one day at a time. There is also a 14 day unlimited ticket which is available for guests who are booking specific Universal Orlando vacation packages. Universal also has some great deals on annual passes which might be more affordable then you think if you plan to visit the parks for more then 5 days. 

#4 Plan Your Vacation Around Peak Season

Another way to make sure you’re getting the best deal on Universal Orlando tickets is to visit during off-peak season. The reason being that Universal tickets are now date based and are always cheapest during the slower times of year. Using our Universal Crowd Calendar can not only save you time in the parks but it can help you purchase the cheapest Universal Studios tickets. We’ll help you plan your vacation around the least crowded days which will also turn out to have some of the best prices for Universal Orlando tickets all year. Guests can also always upgrade and change the date on their tickets if they do decide to visit during one of the busier times of year and would just be required to pay the difference in price. 

#5 Try to Time Your Universal Orlando Purchase

So if you’re not able to visit during one of the slower times of year, another great tip on how to get cheaper Universal tickets is to time your purchase. The reason being is Universal Orlando has released ticket promotions at the beginning of every year for the past two years. These Universal Orlando ticket deals have typically been buy 2 days and get 2 days free. And the best part is there have been minimal block out dates. Now of course it’s not guaranteed that Universal will run a ticket deal every year however it’s worth keeping an eye out for. 

#6 Bundle Your Tickets With a Universal Orlando Hotel Package

Another great tip when figuring out how to get discount Universal tickets is by combining them with an on-site Universal hotel. There are many times throughout the year when Universal will run deals with package savings of up to 30% off when you stay onsite. This is also especially true If you plan to purchase a Universal Express Passes. The reason being is some of the Universal on-site hotels will include the express passes free of charge. This is easily one of the cheapest ways to purchase Universal Orlando tickets combined with express passes as the passes will start at $129 per person per day. 

#7 Always Ask if There is a Discount For Your Profession

Another one of the easiest ways to buy cheap Universal tickets is to ask if there are any discounts for the profession you are in. This is especially true for Universal Orlando military discounts, Universal teacher discounts, and first responder and medical discounts. Although these cheap tickets might not come directly from Universal, there are many websites like The Park Prodigy which will allow you to add specific coupons on top of our already discounted Universal Orlando tickets. This is just another way we strive to make sure you are getting the best deals for Universal Studios Florida tickets. The only exception is Military discounts where you might be able to get the absolute best deal possible from booking with Universal directly. We love that the travel community continues to do everything they can to thank our armed services and provide the absolute best deals possible! 

#8 Upgrade Your Universal Tickets Later On

One of the easiest ways to make sure you’re getting the best price for Universal Orlando tickets is to always start with the base options. We find this to be the best option for families that might be visiting for the first time and are unsure how they would like to experience the park. And we find that two of the most common questions we receive are:  
  • Is the Hogwarts Express worth it to upgrade to the park-to-park option? 
  • Should we visit Volcano Bay? 
The truth is every family has their own style and our answer will most likely be different depending on what’s most important to you. But if you’re in a hurry and know that you are visiting Universal but don’t know the answers to the questions above simply buy the Universal base tickets. This will make sure you’re buying the cheapest Universal ticket available, and you can upgrade later on if need be.  We will say the only downside to this is you will have to stop at one of the will-call booths during your vacation.
