Hey folks,

I've done a lot of homework recently and am trying to obtain the following a the lowest cost; Any deal mongers out there: Advice is appreciated.

3 days passes - 3 days Fast Pass Ultimate.

Right now Universal is offering a 2 +1 Free deal. (Single Park Ticks are Fine)
That comes out to be $170 pp.
The Universal Express Unlimited pass come out to be $79 For One Park and $54 for the other. With Both being $89.

1) Is there another site that I should be buying my tickets from (outside of universalorlando)
2) Does anyone have any universalorlando promo-codes?
3) Any advice?

I checked undercovertourist and they are more expensive or right on universalorlando.
I also have been checking other discount ticket sites and most of them are significantly more expensive,

Keep in mind that undercovertourist already has taxes included in their price. Universal you have to add taxes too which makes their prices more expensive.

if you have family/friends in FL, you can ask them to buy for you since they get a huge discount as FL residents.

I'm sure there is huge resident discount on some huge tickets; but what is the huge discount on 1 or 2-day Universal and on 1 or 2-day Disney?

Could you be asked to provide ID as a FL resident? I would be cautious about it.

Yeah I didn't think that it would be worth the risk or hassle if I did that and they told me that I have to show ID. I wouldn't be able to present one. Also to make it impossible I don't have family down there. Thanks for the posts though!

The school I teach at and the state employee's union both give employee discounts in the Orlando area through a website orlandoemployeediscounts.com but you do need an employee access code. You might want to check if your employer offers something similar. I wasn't aware of it because the last time I looked at the travel website, there wasn't much there, but one of my co-workers said she got a really good deal there.

OP was asking for advice, not a price quote on tours or exact ticket numbers. thumper is kind enough to offer suggestions, maybe they are not as good as what you are used to but they are sound advice and could be options the OP can look into.

kindness is a commendable trait. Yet we r on slickdeals for time+price efficiency. Up to 10% discount is nothing

for you maybe its nothing, for others, its a lot. if you got a good deal, please feel free to share it with all of us so that we can all take advantage of it. People reading this thread would surely appreciate it.

all I said: 10% off rack prices is nothing. Understand the difference between 10% "discount" off of rack (gate) price, and 10% discount off of a "deal". In the first case that usually = loss; in the second case it may be "a lot"

go back to what you said in the beginning.... "10% discount is nothing"... no mention of rack prices... so there you go... show me where you said rack prices.
as previously mentioned, tells us of a better deal.... enough said...

Like you said, most of the savings are in the 5 to 10% range, but there is a special right now. A 4 day park hopper is $409 (total) with 3 free days which is 12.5% less than the gate price for a 7-day of $439 + tax = 467.54. The difference is $58.54 and if there were 4 in your family, you would save $234.16. I think that's a nice chunk of change. I gave the name of the website and suggested that people look at what their employers have to offer. I would have never thought to look for it myself if my co-worker didn't mention it. What I said in an earlier post, "You might want to check if your employer offers something similar." I did not say I had a hot deal or a code to share as it is an employee benefit.

Many of us are here to find travel deals, and it's great when one comes up and we can get a deal, but sometimes one of us asks for some advice such as when is the best time to buy tickets and it's good to get some serious responses. This is the Travel Forum, not the Hot Travel Deals Forum.
