Buying Universal Meal Deals

One thing that is becoming more popular at the parks these days is the idea of a meal deal. This allows you to budget more accurately on your food bills during your visits to the park.

In November 2013, Universal dropped its original meal deal and replaced it with a second version of the Universal Dining Plan, similar to Disney’s Dining Plan. They also offer a character breakfast and a special evening dining experience.

Universal Studios Florida® operate two theme parks in Orlando, Universal Studios Florida and the new roller-coaster park, Islands of Adventure plus the music and entertainment venue, Universal CityWalk®.

If you do not want to buy a full-blown dining plan, then you can buy either:

Universal Original Meal Deal

The original Universal Meal Deal basically allowed you to eat just about as much as you liked at one of the participating restaurants, for a fixed price but it was dropped in November 2013 in favour of the Universal Dining Plan - Quick Service.

With the Meal Deal you exchanged your meal deal ticket for a wristband at one of the participating restaurants and then you could get one entrée and one dessert each time you entered the service line.
