Buying Universal UK Visitor Tickets

If you are a UK visitor, then you can get special two and three park holiday tickets if you purchase them in advance, which can represent really good value for money compared to the standard day tickets. Because of fluctuating exchange rates, Universal typically offer ticket prices valid for visits during specific years.

It is also possible for UK visitors to purchase Express Plus passes in Sterling before travelling though you should check the US dollar amounts as the exchange rate fluctuates.


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.

UK visitor tickets only offer the “length of stay” two or three park-to-park access ticket options. The “park-to-park” option allows you to hop between the two parks on any given day, like Disney’s “hopper” add-on.

You can buy either:

You also get up to 14 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.
