Universal Orlando today changed to a variable-pricing model for multi-tickets to its theme parks.
The switch actually drops prices for some dates, while raising them for others. Prices are based upon the first day of your visit, much like the multi-day pricing model rival Walt Disney World adopted a couple of years ago. Before today, ticket prices were fixed for multi-day theme park tickets at Universal Orlando, though prices varied by date for single-day tickets.
Universal has retained the same three-tier structure for single-day tickets. However, now fans will see multiple pricing tiers on multi-day tickets, as well. In general, there's less variance between dates the more days you buy. And the average price per day declines as you buy more days, as well.
And since these tickets are date-specific, they effectively serve as reservation dates for you, something that Universal had not implemented before now. If you want the flexibility to visit on any date, you would need to but tickets at the highest price tier.
Here are the new average daily price ranges for multi-day tickets at Universal Orlando, compared with the previous, flat-rate prices.
For one park per day tickets:
For Park-to-Park tickets (visit both Universal Studios Florida and Islands of Adventure on the same day. Required to ride Hogwarts Express):
You can check prices and dates on Universal Orlando's website. Universal also continues to offer its buy-two-days, get-two-more-days-free deal, with one park per day tickets for $219 for the four days, and Park-to-Park tickets for $279 for the four days. All prices are before sales tax.
Universal Orlando also continues to offer its "buy one day and visit all days through Christmas Eve" offer for Florida residents, as well.
