Universal Orlando increases ticket prices

Universal Orlando increases ticket prices at an astounding rate

In January Universal Orlando made significant price increases to its menu items.  It usually waits until Disney increases ticket prices before following suit, but the Universal resort raised ticket prices to an amount that may shock many guests arriving to purchase those tickets.

Universal Orlando tickets increased between 2.9% and an amazing 14.5% for a single year price increase!  This follows a recent earnings report that showed more than a 30% increase in profit.

  1. With 180 days to use the multi day passes, that actually makes it a fairly good deal for those in driving distance as I would never want to do 4 consecutive days at Universal.

  2. Well I just crossed universal off my to do list. My daughter will be denied hanging in Harry Potter land. What the hell do think vacationers are made of money ? ITS RIDICULOUS……these places do care as long as the consumer pays these unwarranted prices. It’s pure profit, because you know they don’t have a decent minimum wage. This will not stop until vacationers stop paying and visiting. And as much as I am a Disney enthusiaist they are almost priced out of the real world too. It’s sad really. My last trip was in 2009, the sad thing it may have been my last trip down forever.

What do you think?
