Admission to Universal Studios

If you'll be in the Orlando area for multiple days (and you plan to visit Universal Studios Florida and Islands of Adventure), you can save money by purchasing a multiday/multipark pass.

After purchasing your admission ticket, if you decide you want to stay longer or upgrade your admission for additional days, special discounts are offered at the Customer Service counter near the entrance of the park. You must upgrade your ticket the day it's purchased, however.

Four-Park Orlando FlexTicket

The Orlando FlexTicket offers a way to see multiple Orlando-based attractions and theme parks and save money. If you're planning to visit Universal Studios Florida, Islands of Adventure, CityWalk, SeaWorld, and Wet 'n Wild, you'll save a fortune with this type of multiday, multipark pass. It's valid for fourteen consecutive days and offers unlimited admission to each of the following theme parks:

  • Busch Gardens (Tampa Bay, Florida — ticket includes free bus transportation)

  • SeaWorld Orlando

  • Universal Studios Florida

  • Universal Studios Islands of Adventure

  • Wet 'n Wild

  • CityWalk

While the Orlando FlexTicket does not include admission to any of the Disney-owned theme parks, it offers great savings to other popular Orlando-area attractions. If you're planning to visit the Universal theme parks, SeaWorld, and Busch Gardens, this type of ticket is worthwhile.

Same-Day Theme Park Re-entry

As you leave either of the Universal Orlando Resort theme parks, be sure to have your hand stamped as you exit in order to be granted readmission into that park later in the day or evening. In addition to the hand stamp, be sure to retain your ticket stub. The hand stamps are designed to be water-resistant, so don't worry if your hands get wet if you choose to return to your hotel in the middle of the day to go swimming and then want to return to Universal Studios Florida later that evening. Try to refrain, however, from scrubbing your hands clean with soap until your day's visit to the theme park is complete.
