Buying Universal Orlando Florida Residents Tickets

If you are a Florida resident, then you can get special discounts on some standard day tickets as well as annual passes by buying a Florida Residents ticket.

Universal Studios Florida® operate two theme parks in Orlando, Universal Studios Florida and the new roller-coaster park, Islands of Adventure plus the Volcano Bay water park that replaces Wet n’ Wild and the music and entertainment venue, Universal CityWalk®.

Universal Studios used to sell just one or two day tickets which admitted you to either Universal Studios or Islands of Adventure or both. From January 2010 they started selling their “U Select” pass which gave you the choice of a single park or both parks for either one, two, three, four or seven days admission. This is similar to Disney’s “Magic Your Way” ticket system.

In 2011 the seven day ticket was dropped and replaced by a “length of stay” 14 day ticket for UK visitors only.

Florida Residents tickets only offer the one, two, three, four or five day ticket options plus special deals around major events like Mardi Gras and the Holiday season.

The Florida Residents two day and three days tickets sometimes have a number of blockout dates but in 2021 there are no blockout dates.

The “base ticket” gives you access to one park per day whilst the “park-to-park” option allows you to hop between the two parks on any given day, like Disney’s “hopper” add-on.

In 2016, Universal introduced a fourth annual pass called the Seasonal Pass with more restrictions than the cheaper Power Pass.

All passes give you discounts on regular Universal theme park tickets, Blue Man Group tickets and on-site hotels.

Universal single and multi-park ticket options are:

If you buy at least a two day ticket, then you also get up to 7 consecutive calendar days of access to the paid venues at Universal CityWalk (excluding the AMC Universal Cineplex 20 and the Blue Man Group Show).

Like most of the Florida theme parks, anyone aged 10 or over on the day of their first entry to the theme parks is classed as an adult and will have to buy an adult ticket.

Children between the ages of 3 and 9 are classed as children and may purchase a child ticket.

Children under the age of 3 are admitted for free.
