The Mouse For Less Tips

  • In order to keep your extra spending costs down add a Universal dining plan to your vacation package or to your separately purchased park ticket. With the dining plan your meals are already paid for so you wont worry about running out of cash while your visiting any of the parks.
  • When you stay at any of the on-site hotels you get complimentary access to select clubs and entertainment venues at Universal CityWalk, and a select few even offer complimentary express passes.
  • Universal partners with nearby hotels for those wanting to stay off-site to save a little money. This is a great option for anyone purchasing their room stay and park tickets separately. All partner value or moderate hotels are 3 miles or less from Universal Orlando Resort. Click here for more information.
  • If you would like to include it in your package you can click the airfare + hotel + tickets in the online booking tool and you can bundle everything together.
  • Florida residents can get $50 off multi-park tickets when you purchase online, so purchasing your hotel room and park tickets separately might be a good option for those with a Florida address.
  • Package prices can be expected to rise depending on the hotel or resort you choose.
