If you are reading this I am guessing that you have already read the first part of this blog series giving advice on your Flights and Accommodation, if you haven't and want to keep up to date click here.


Okay, so your flights and accommodation has been covered, next to think about is your park tickets. Park tickets are a compete mine field as there are so many, so you really need to do your research on the parks and decide what ones you are going to visit.
Remember, that if you are only doing one or two weeks it is impossible to cover everything, if you cram every park into your 2 week holiday you will be exhausted and need another holiday when you come back! So make sure to make time for rest days. 

The most popular parks/day activities around Orlando are:

Disney World Parks & Water Parks
Universal Parks & Volcano Bay Waterpark
SeaWorld Parks (SeaWorld, Busch Gardens, Aquatica, Discovery Cove)
Kennedy Space Centre

Seen as I am concentrating on 'Disney World Holidays' I will talk about the Disney park tickets. There are 4 parks and 2 waterparks, the most popular choice for a 1/2/3 week holiday would be getting the 'Disney Ultimate Ticket' they do these in 7, 14 and 21 day tickets and they allow unlimited access to every park and waterpark for 7/14/21 consecutive days. They are 'Park Hoppers' which means you can visit every park on the same day if you wish. 

The current 2018 price for these tickets are as follows:

7 day Ultimate Ticket Child: £379  Adult: £399
14 day Ultimate Ticket Child: £399 Adult: £419  
21 day Ultimate Ticket Child: £419  Adult: £439
Prices taken from the Disney Holidays website.

Another popular and often cheaper alternative If you wanted to visit other parks would be a Combo Ticket. This is where tickets from 2 or more parks would be combined to make a cheaper price than if you were to buy them separately. For example, if you knew you wanted to visit all Disney parks and the Universal parks, it would be cheaper to buy 1 combo ticket per person.

Universal/Disney Combo Adult: £670 Child: £640
Disney/SeaWorld Combo Adult: £527 Child: £504
Disney/Universal/SeaWorld Combo Adult: £780 Child: £750
Prices taken from Orlando Attraction Tickets.

In most cases, it is a lot cheaper to buy your park tickets in advance before your trip, there are SO many great websites to buy your park tickets so it is worth doing your research as many UK ticket sellers have offers at different times in the year such as discounted prices or freebies with your purchase. 

Here are some recommended ticket sites:

If you don't want to pay for your tickets straight away in full, some sites allow a small deposit per person so you can secure the price but not pay until around 6 weeks before your departure.
