Universal Orlando Ticket Prices – More Expensive Than Disney

It took less than a week for Universal Orlando ticket prices to increase after Disney raised theirs.  I certainly hope some of you are sitting down… a one day pass is more expensive than Walt Disney World.

A single day park admission now costs $102, previously $96, and children’s tickets cost $97, up from $90. If you’re looking for a one-day two-park ticket, it will set you back $147 (previously $136) and children will pay $142 for that privilege, where it used to cost them $130.

In addition, adults will now pay $194.99 (compared with the old price of $175.99) for a 2-day ticket that will give them access to both Islands of Adventure and Universal Studios Florida. Four days becomes even cheaper based on a daily rate at $214.99 for adults, previously at $195.99.

Based on a single days admission rate, Universal Orlando is now more expensive than every park at Walt Disney World aside from the Magic Kingdom. Many people now said Walt Disney World is too expensive for their family to come and visit, is that also true for Universal Orlando? Leave a comment down below and let me know.

    Disney is cheaper under a single scenario. You decide to visit AK, DHS, or EPCOT for one day only.

    Universal’s one day price of $102 is still cheaper than the Magic Kingdom. The park hopper option adds $50 to the Magic Kingdom’s $105 admission cost or $58 to the $97 AK, DHS, or EPCOT passes for a total of $155, which is more expensive than the Universal 1 day park to park pass of $147.

    Disney’s 2 day hopper pass is $242, which is more expensive than the 2 day Universal Park to Park at $194.99 online price. The gate price is still cheaper at $194.99.

      My last line was in error. The gate price is still cheaper at $214.99.

    At least Universal puts some of that money to new rides these days.

    Also, what’s with the aggressive disney defense force deal going on this blog.
