Are you ready to head back to a big theme park – with enhanced health and safety plans in place? Have you dreamed of visiting The Wizarding World of Harry Potter at Universal Orlando Resort?
If your answer is YES to either of these questions, keep reading. Unusual circumstances have created some unusual Universal Orlando deals in Florida.
Current Universal Orlando Deals
Universal Orlando is currently offering 3 Days Free when you buy 2 days. That's an insane ticket deal! Here are the details:
- Buy before January 6, 2021
- Use before August 31, 2021
- No blackout dates
- Tickets are non-refundable and non-changeable
- Volcano Bay is not included
Five days is plenty of time to enjoy Universal Studios Florida and Universals' Islands of Adventure. The Wizarding World of Harry Potter is split between the two parks, and Harry Potter fans can dig deep into these impressively detailed experiences with that kind of time.
Harry Potter gets a lot of attention at Universal Orlando Resort, but there are so many other attractions that my family loved in these two parks, including Suess' Landing, Marvel attractions, Jurassic Park attractions, and more.
Be sure to buy Park to Park tickets (not One Park Per Day) if the Hogwarts Express is essential for you. The Hogwarts Express in The Wizarding World of Harry Potter travels between Universal Orlando's two theme parks and you can only ride it with a Park to Park ticket.
However, if your budget is tight and the Hogwarts Express is not essential, a family of four can save $200+ by purchasing the One Park Per Day tickets. With this option, you can choose between Universal Studios Florida and Universals' Islands of Adventure on each of the five days. You don't have to choose in advance, but you can only visit one park on any day and you cannot ride the Hogwarts Express between the parks.
Where to Buy
There are two good ways to get this Universal Orlando deal and the best one depends on your personal needs and interests. I recommend that you buy either from the official Universal Orlando website or through my favorite travel agency, Get Away Today Vacations.
Official Universal Orlando website
The biggest advantage of buying through the official Universal Orlando website is that you can choose between the Park to Park and One Park Per Day tickets. If the Hogwarts Express is on your wish list, be sure to buy Park to Park tickets.
Other advantages to buying through the official site is a low price guarantee and easy access to other promotions. There are some great deals available just for Florida residents right now.

Get Away Today
I have been working with Get Away Today Vacations for nearly 8 years and I was a customer before that. Their customer service is exceptional.
If you want help with booking a great resort – on or off-property – with your tickets, then give Get Away Today a call at 1-855-GET-AWAY. Or if you want assistance booking a combined Universal/Disney World/SeaWorld trip, then I strongly recommend Get Away Today. You'll get personalized, expert advice from a real person that you can call or email anytime.
Unfortunately, Get Away Today cannot sell the Park to Park option for the 5-for-2 deal at this time. You can only purchase One Park Per Day tickets for the 5-for-2 deal through Get Away Today.
See ticket options at Get Away Today's website at www.getawaytoday.com.
Disclosure: I will receive a small sales commission if you use these links to book through Get Away Today. Thank you for your support!

Universal Orlando Resort is one of my family's favorite destinations. It has two big theme parks, The Wizarding World of Harry Potter, a top-notch water park, the CityWalk shopping and dining district, and several on-site resorts. That's plenty of fun things to do for an entire vacation.
Now is not the right time for everyone to visit Universal Orlando, but there are some great deals available for families who are ready to book for 2020 and 2021.
