Universal on a Budget

Universal is growing in popularity and there are certainty ways to travel to Universal on a budget. Here are some tips to help you have a Universal travel experience while being mindful of your budget.

 





  1. Plan in advance: Universal has a deposit option very similar to Disney but varies based on the package and resort. Payments can be made up to 45 days before check-in. This allows you to apply payments as little or as much as you like leading up to trip.

  2. Use a Universal Vacation Planner: Your travel professional will be up to date on all the promotions available at the time of desired travel. Universal provides promotions and your travel professional can apply those promotions after your package is booked to continue to help you grab those great savings!

  3. When considering a Universal package, ask your travel professional about off-site hotel options. There are several options that are close to Universal that include a free or low-cost shuttle, or you can even walk to the parks. Some of the options also include free breakfast and other amenities that will help you stay within budget.

  4. Use refillable souvenir cups and buckets such as the Coke Freestyle Souvenir Cup, the refillable buckets of popcorn, and the regular park beverage souvenir cup that can be purchased for one price and refilled throughout the day for a low cost.



5. Bring your own snacks and water! Bring a refillable water bottle to fill up at the parks instead of purchasing water. Spending money on small snacks and water bottles really adds up by the end of your trip.


While planning ahead and preparing, you can have a memorable experience while traveling to Universal and stay within your budget.

These are actually such good tips. I don’t know why I have never thought of just refilling my own water bottle at amusement parks. It’s so simple, but such a good tip!!

These are really great tips! I didn’t know they had the deposit option like Disney! That makes it so much easier to book in advance and get the time of year you desire without paying so much upfront!
