Tips for our friends from the Uk & Ireland
To our friends in the UK & Ireland (especially our 1st time visitors). Before you purchase a 14 day Ultimate, ask yourself do you really need 14 days of unlimited Disney? The Ultimate is a great ticket for someone who is visiting Orlando that only plans on visiting the Disney Parks and wants the freedom to come and go as they please as often as they would like. But then what about SeaWorld? Universal Studios? Islands of Adventure? Busch Gardens? Aquatica? Legoland? Beach Day? Shopping Day? Rest Day(s)? None of those things are included with your Disney 14 Day Ultimate ticket. One can only cram so much into a 14 day holiday. One of the biggest mistakes we find people make is they over-buy tickets. Especially 1st time visitors. After being in this business for many years here is what we tend to find with our guests who've purchased 14 day Ultimates: THEY FEEL CHEATED!
The average person who purchases a 14 day Ultimate will visit the Magic Kingdom® park one day, EPCOT® one day, Disney's Hollywood Studios® one day, Disney's Animal Kingdom® one day, Disney's Blizzard Beach or Typhoon Lagoon (sometimes both) & they will sometimes go back a second day to Magic Kingdom® park. YOU DO NOT NEED A 14 DAY ULTIMATE TO DO THIS!
A better ticket option is a 4 Day Hopper + Water Parks. This ticket gives you 4 days of hopping Disney's 4 Main Parks (Hopping means you can visit multiple parks in the same day) and 4 additional visits to the water parks: Blizzard Beach, Typhoon Lagoon... which can be done on the same days you visit the main parks or you can spread them out over 4 additional days. And you have 14 days from the first use to use up your days.
After extensive research of 100's of UK sites that sell the 14 day Ultimate ticket we've found that the top selling sites sell them for between £380-£450 (some sites sell them for even more). So on average people are spending 50-100 quid more than they should be on their Disney tickets alone!!! And that's only if you're trying to visit all the Disney Parks. What if you only want to visit 1, 2 or 3 of the parks? At Orlando Tickets 4 U, we will only sell you what you need.
WHAT ABOUT THE ORLANDO FLEXTICKET™ AND THE FLEXTICKET™ PLUS?
The Orlando FlexTicket™ and FlexTicket™ Plus were retired at the end of 2016. But most companies still call their bundles FlexTickets. So for comparison sake we'll call them that here too! They are the best way to see and do everything not Disney that Central Florida has to offer. The Orlando FlexTicket™ gives you 14 days of unlimited admissions to Universal Studios Florida™, Universal's Islands of Adventure™, Universal's Volcano Bay™, SeaWorld® Orlando & Aquatica SeaWorld's Waterpark™.
With the FlexTicket™ Plus you get the above mentioned 5 parks plus Busch Gardens® Tampa with Free Shuttle Service to Busch Gardens® Tampa. Both tickets include free unlimited access to the paid live entertainment venues at Universal Orlando Resort's CityWalk® entertainment complex (must be 21 or older for some venues). You can buy these tickets through most UK sites, but they sell these tickets for much higher than we do!
Now the question is: Do you need a 5 or 6 park Flex?
Answer: That depends on you. If you have time to visit all 5 or 6 of these parks the answer is definitely yes! To purchase a one day ticket to each of these parks it would cost you over £490 or €575 & you would only get to go to each park once. With the Orlando FlexTicket ticket you get unlimited admissions for 14 days!
But what if I don't want to do all 5 or 6 of these parks?
Answer: Orlando Tickets 4 U has some great deals on 3- 7 Park Bundles. Our 6 & 7 Park Bundles* include FREE Parking at: SeaWorld, Busch Gardens, Aquatica & Adventure Island Tampa!
*Best Value Tickets
You can't come to Florida and not visit one of our world-class beaches. Whether you decide to visit the Atlantic coast or the Gulf coast, each one is aprox 1.5 hr. drive from Orlando. Our guests commonly ask us "which beach should we go to?" Our answer is always "Clearwater Beach". With it's pristine white sand, crystal clear water, gorgeous sunsets, 2 children's play areas, and the famous Pier 60, Clearwater Beach is often voted as the #1 family beach in America! There is no better way to spend a day in the middle of a busy theme park filled holiday than a nice relaxing day at the beach! We even have beach gear for you to use (free of charge).
Sunsets at Pier 60, Clearwater Beach
After a day of fun in the sun, we highly recommend that you stay and watch the sunset. The Sunsets at Pier 60 Festival is a nightly sunset celebration that takes place in Pier 60 Park on Clearwater Beach, Florida.
This free family event (starts 2 hours before and ends 2 hours after sunset) features artisans, crafters, street performers and musical entertainment, weather permitting. It is the perfect way to end the day!
