In direct response to Walt Disney World’s price increase, Universal Orlando responded with their ticket price increases a week later.
The Orlando Sentinel reports a one-day, single-park “base” adult ticket is $96 plus tax, up from $92. The price for a child’s ticket jumped from $86 to $90. A one-day, two-park (“park-to-park”) ticket went from $128 to $136 for adults and $122 to $130 for children. A two-day “base” ticket to either Universal Studios Florida or Universal’s Islands of Adventure increased from $146.99 to $155.99 for adults and $136.99 to $145.99 for children. A two-day, “park-to-park” pass went from $166.99 to $195.99 for adults and from $156.99 to $185.99 for children.
This Summer, Universal Orlando is expecting more visitors due to the opening of the Wizarding World of Harry Potter – Diagon Alley – located in Universal Studios where the Jaws ride and the Amity area once stood. This also means guests will be required to by a park-to-park ticket to be able to experience all of the Wizarding World of Harry Potter attractions. Guests will board the Hogwarts Express train from Hogsmeade Village at Islands of Adventure to “London” and Diagon Alley at Universal Studios Florida.
