Are you considering a trip to Universal Orlando this year? If so, I'm about to make it easier.
It's Kimberly from Get Away Today. We recently had a great visit with reps from Universal Orlando Resort, and learned some awesome updates about their parks. Did you know that for the first time in five years, Universal Orlando will be adding a new Harry Potter themed attraction to the Resort?
One of the most exciting opportunities to come from this meeting is a Universal Orlando ticket sale! Here are the details.
The Big Deal
You can buy discount Universal Orlando Resort tickets through Get Away Today anytime. Right now, save even more with Universal's 5 Days for the Price of 2 offer.
Purchase Universal Orlando tickets by June 12, 2019 and get 5-Day tickets for the price of 2 days! That is a savings of up to $434 for a family of four. The tickets must be used by December 20, 2019.

Hagrid’s Magical Creatures Motorbike Adventure opens June 13, 2019. If you take advantage of this deal, you'll be among the first to ride!
The discount Universal Orlando tickets apply to both 2-Park and 3-Park Park-to-Park tickets. You can choose between Park-to-Park tickets and One-Park-Per-Day. Which ticket is right for your family? Read on for more information about your options.
Is Park-to-Park Worth It?
Is the Universal Park-to-Park ticket worth it? Yes, because you can't ride the Hogwarts Express between Universal Studios and Islands of Adventure without it. They are two separate parks, so you can't use a One-Park-Per-Day ticket on the Hogwarts Express.
The Hogwarts Express is more than a train ride between Diagon Alley and Hogsmeade. You'll sit in seats much like those from the Harry Potter movies and see scenes on both sides of the compartment that will make you feel like you're really headed for Hogwarts. The queue on the Diagon Alley side is an experience all its own. This ride is essential for Harry Potter fans.
If you don't care about the Hogwarts Express or the convenience of park hopping, then consider the One-Park-Per-Day option. You can still get the 5-for-2 deal and save more than $50 per person. You can choose one park to visit each day. There is plenty in Universal Studios, Islands of Adventure or Volcano Bay to fill 1-2 full days each.
How Many Days Do You Need?
How many days do you need for Universal Orlando Resort? I recommend at least 3-4, especially if you spend a day at Volcano Bay – Universal's new water park. Five days ensures that you can hit all your favorite attractions, and even build in a few hours to slow down and relax on your vacation.
Universal Orlando Resort has three theme parks:
- Universal Studios Florida
- Universal's Islands of Adventure
- Volcano Bay
You can choose a 2-Park ticket or a 3-Park ticket. The 2-Park ticket includes Universal Studios or Islands of Adventure. The 3-Park ticket adds Volcano Bay.
Universal Studios and Islands of Adventure are next to each other. It's easy to walk or ride between these two parks. Volcano Bay is farther away. Free shuttle service is provided for Volcano Bay.
If you really plan to spend five full days at Universal Orlando Resort, I'd buy the 3-Park option. Volcano Bay is fun, and will add variety to your week. I think that 1-2 days each for Universal Studios and Islands of Adventure is about right.
A 5-Day ticket will give you the flexibility to spend as much time as you like exploring the nooks and crannies of The Wizarding World of Harry Potter – and there is so much delightful detail! It's plenty of time to learn why TripAdvisor named Islands of Adventure the world's #1 theme park.
What's New in 2019?
Hagrid's Magical Creatures Motorbike Adventure will be the first new Harry Potter ride at Universal Orlando in five years! It's a thrilling ride, with the latest technology. It opens on June 13, 2019.
This new ride is just one of the fun new attractions to open at Universal in 2018-2019. Here are a few of the others that you can enjoy.
- Hagrid’s Magical Creatures Motorbike Adventure
- Fast & Furious – Supercharged
- The Nighttime Lights at Hogwarts Castle
- Epic Cinema Under the Stars
