Price increase for Universal Studios?
Submitted by becky z
It made you select the date you were going to first visit the park and the prices varied depending on the date, with a one day park to park as $189!!
Any insight as to if this is truly going to be the price upon the WWHP expansion or some sort of glitch?

You didn't happen to get a screen grab, did you?
From luca ferracuti on May 7, 2014 at 2:53 PMfor July I bought 4 2-day park to park with unlimited express. This turned out to be 1,300$
From becky z on May 7, 2014 at 4:00 PMI didnt get a screen shot. Had I known that the prices would be posted and pulled within 6 hours I would have been sure to get evidence. I have googled everywhere and have not found anywhere that saw it...:-):-)
From Russell Meyer on May 8, 2014 at 6:59 AMThat price just seems completely wrong. It's essentially double the current price for a 1-day 1-park pass, which is $96 (the park to park option currently brings the price up to $136). I could see that being the 2-day 2-park pass, which is currently $176.99. Even a 1-day WDW park hopper ticket is just $142.71 (including MK), so going another 32% above that is simply obscene, and completely unbelievable. I think that $189 price makes a lot more sense for the 2-day 2-park pass, which would be a more modest, yet significant, 7% increase, along with the elimination of the free 3rd day promotions UO has been running a lot in the past.
If this is true, Universal seems to think the Hogwart's Express is worth $93 (the difference between this rumored price and the current 1-day 1 park pass). I believe UO will take advantage of the park to park requirement that the new attraction brings, but to fleece customers that much seems a bit outrageous. I'll believe it when I see it. In the meantime, we are searching around for currently available discounted UO passes that will still be valid in October when we'll be visiting the parks.
From becky z on May 8, 2014 at 7:52 AMI don't disagree that it was outrageous, which is what prompted me to ask if anyone had an insight as to if was true or a glitch, but I find it hard to believe that a website could glitch to make you select a day for your ticket to begin in advance AND raise the price that much
I guess only time will tell
