When will Universal raise its theme park ticket prices?

February 11, 2018, 11:49 AM

Disney just posted its annual ticket and AP price increases. So when do you think Universal will match?

And when do you think SeaWorld will post its next price cut? ;^)

Guesses in the responses. Bragging rights at stake. Go!

Friday for Universal.

Sea world... Late March.

I think Sea World doesn't raise its prices.
Universal will come tomorrow.

And will Universal drop any other news tomorrow to counter Disney's announcements later tonight?

Oh no. I’m going to Orlando in June, but I’m unwilling to buy tickets yet until a month before leaving. Too much risk (if plans change) and too much money involved.

Well, considering what BGW did to its tickets late last week (completely revamped their season passes into "Memberships", which drew hundreds of furious posts from fans on their Facebook page), I would guess that Sea World will not be far behind.

As far as Universal, they usually trail about a week or 2 behind Disney in their annual price increases. I'd bet that Universal takes Disney's idea and turns it on its head by offering "discounted" admission on slower days. If I were them, I'd do a standard across-the-board admission increase (with prices staying the same regardless of the day you visit - meaning everyone pays the "peak" admission price), but offer guests a discount if they enter the park on a slow day. That discount would come in the form of a park credit that could be used on food, UE, or souvenirs in the parks and/or CityWalk, and could be redeemed right after you walk into the park for the day.

Called it! I’m 1/2.

You always dump bad news on a Friday, I learned that from the west wing.
