Planning tip: Look to ticket combos for deals on theme park visits

June 2, 2019, 12:43 PM · One great way to find deals on theme park tickets is to look for combination tickets. Those are tickets packages that include admission to multiple theme parks — not just in the same resort but usually in the same market. Since many theme park fans like to hit all the parks in an area when they visit, combo tickets can be a great way to save money over buying from each park or resort separately.

Our ticket and travel partner has put together a couple of great combo tickets for Theme Park Insider readers planning a visit to Universal Orlando. These combo deals also include tickets to either SeaWorld or Legoland Florida, each of which have debuted new lands focused on popular children's IP this year: Sesame Street at SeaWorld Orlando and The Lego Movie World at Legoland Florida.

Each package includes a five-day ticket to the Universal Orlando Resort (for the price of just two days), plus a discounted one day ticket to either SeaWorld or Legoland. So you're getting a full week's vacation in Central Florida for less than the regular price of a long weekend. Check out the deals:

Thinking about the west coast instead? We have combo tickets available for Universal Studios Hollywood, as well:

All packages offer savings over the price of buying these tickets separately at the gate. For more vacation packages to destinations around the United States, please visit our ticket packages page and pick a destination to see what is currently available.

The Orlando Flex Ticket always seemed like a good deal to me where you get 14 days of Universal, Islands of Adventure, SeaWorld, Aquatica, and Busch Gardens.

Ticket combos can be great, but can also be a nightmare to determine their real cost/value, especially if you already have admission to included attractions through a season pass or membership.

We've been looking specifically at the Go passes in LA and San Diego for our upcoming trip to SoCal. However, we have season passes that grant us unlimited admissions to Sea World, Knott's, and SFMM, so any combination ticket/pass including those parks is devalued for us. What's worse is that the LA GoPass includes important SD-Area attractions like Legoland and the Zoo, but of course it forces you to chose between those 2 (can't do both). These combo passes are also more valuable if you plan to visit more than 1 attraction in a single day, but the way we're planning out our visit, we're devoting full (or multiple) days to all of the theme parks, meaning that the museums and other attractions are the only places where we can get multiple admissions in a single day.

Also, what makes this process so complicated is that the prices quoted by the various discounters is not actually the price you pay. Some discounters display prices without tax, while others tack on a processing or shipping/handling fee if physical media needs to be mailed. It seems that Undercover Tourist is the only online discounter that shows the "all-in" price when you review their options. It's really difficult and arduous to compare all of the various options to see which one is truly the best.
