Theme Park Tickets – Which Ones?

Florida Guide > Planning your Trip

With the vast array of ticket permutations available for admission into the Orlando theme parks, it is hardly surprising that the first time visitor to Florida can get easily confused if they don’t do their homework.

Do you buy individual day tickets, or multiple day tickets of three, five, seven days or more, then should they have expiration dates or not, do you want to include the water parks as part of the package? …. and so it goes on.

In this article we are going to concentrate on how much time you want to allocate to the different theme parks. Individual circumstances and preferences, of course, prevail but based on the assumption that you are looking a for balanced holiday taking in the sights as well as a bit of rest and relaxation, then theme park visits need to be carefully planned. They can be exhausting places, especially on busy days, and over indulgence could leave you ragged and fatigued.

Disney offer a range of ticket options ranging from daily tickets up to ten days or more and, of course, the price structure is such that the more days you sign up for then the cheaper the daily cost appears to become. Some tickets also include entrance to the Water Parks of Typhoon Lagoon and Blizzard Beach as part of the deal.

Anheuser-Busch who own SeaWorld and Busch Gardens offer ‘combo’ tickets at discounted rates and regularly have ‘two days or more for the price of one.

Then of course there are tempting deals being offered for Universal Studios, Wet n’ Wild, Cypress Gardens, Islands of Adventure and so on.

By now you will have got our drift that unless you are an absolute ‘parkaholic’ there is no way you can visit all the theme parks on one average two week visit.

From our experiences you have to be ruthless yet selective, and a good rule of thumb to ensure a happy holiday is one theme park every two days.

That gives you recovery time to simply relax by the pool or enjoy some of the many other attractions that the Orlando Metropolitan area has to offer, be it the arts, theatre, the numerous state parks or perhaps a drive further afield, to the Gulf Coast or Cape Canaveral.

So set your budget, prioritise your theme parks and stick to your decision. That way you will fall in love with Florida and, with all the remaining theme parks to go at, you will have a good reason to come back again.
