Universal Orlando Resort is kicking off the holiday season with a brand new offer.
The Central Florida theme park resort is offering 2 days free with the purchase of a 2-park, 3-day ticket, Universal Orlando Resort tells Travel + Leisure.
The special ticket offer is open to all residents of the United States and Canada, and prices start at just $276 for adults and $266 for children ages 3 to 9, for a total of five days of park fun. This promotional ticket is available for purchase now and allows guests to visit the theme parks on any five calendar days for eight consecutive calendar days.
Ticket holders can visit both theme parks, Universal Studios Florida and Universal Islands of Adventure, and can choose one park per day tickets or the park-to-park option. Universal’s Volcano Bay, its own South Seas-inspired water park, can also be added. Prices and availability vary depending on the desired first date of visit, and this promotional ticket is available for purchase now for dates up to February 2024.
It’s the perfect time to take advantage of this offer as Universal has also announced the return of its Holiday Celebration, running from 17 November to 31 December. The Holidays at Universal is a resort-wide celebration featuring limited-time décor, entertainment and specialty dining, all included with general admission.
Christmas in the Wizarding World of Harry Potter returns to Universal Islands of Adventure and Universal Studios Florida. The beloved tradition, inspired by the stories of the beloved Harry Potter films, transforms both lands with whimsical, festive decorations and live entertainment. The nightly event, “The Magic of Christmas at Hogwarts Castle”, will light up Universal Islands of Adventure with a seasonal projection show that will illuminate the iconic castle. Guests will also enjoy a special seasonal performance by the Frog Choir, a fictionalised musical performance by Hogwarts students.
Inside the park, Universal’s Holiday Parade with Macy’s will fill the streets with larger-than-life balloons, just like the traditional New York City parade, inspired by popular park franchises including Illumination’s Despicable Me and DreamWorks Animation’s Shrek. The park will also feature appearances by Santa Claus and a towering 80-foot Christmas tree. Iconic musical act Mannheim Steamroller will also return with performances in the park on 2, 3, 9 and 10 December, included with park admission.
Grinchmas at Universal Islands of Adventure brings the stories of Dr. Seuss to life. Guests will meet the imaginative citizens of Who-ville amidst playful holiday decorations. The colourful celebration culminates in the annual Grinchmas Who-liday Spectacular, a limited-time live stage show that retells the timeless story.
The park-wide celebration also includes unique ancillary experiences such as Universal’s Guided Holiday Tour, complete with exclusive meet and greet opportunities, and the Grinch & Friends Character Breakfast.
Those wishing to stay onsite can take advantage of 20 per cent off four-night stays in 2-bedroom suites at Universal’s Endless Summer Resorts and family suites at Universal’s Cabana Bay Beach Resort.
In addition to the holidays, Universal Orlando Resort is celebrating the recent opening of Minion Land with a host of new experiences based on the lovable characters.
