There are a several online vendors selling tickets to Orlando theme parks, many of which offer deals and discounts, as well as popular add-ons such as combined hotel stays and fast-track queuing for rides. To help you find the right option for your preferences and needs, we’ve picked out three of the best.
Reserve Orlando offer a number of affordable packages and direct deals for all Orlando theme parks. These packages include park tickets as well as stays at a large assortment of hotels and vacation homes. Once tickets have been purchased, the website provides e-tickets which you can print off at home, rather than collect them at a location in Orlando. The company’s cancellation policy is pretty impressive too, with a full refund offered up until a week before your trip. Other attractive website features include a video section showcasing various travelogue-style reports on theme park attractions across Orlando.
With over 30 years’ experience, Orlando Attractions bill themselves as a one-stop shop for Orlando theme park tickets. The company offer a choice of four package ranging from two-day to fourteen-day options, all including access to at least one park and often several more. Once they’ve been purchased, you can choose either to have your tickets posted to you (within 14 days), emailed to you, or be picked up on arrival. It’s also worth checking on the site more than once as their ticket prices change daily, with regular Best Ticket Deals as well as Group Rates available. If you email them with an enquiry, a knowledgeable member of their Orlando-based customer service team will get back to you promptly. For extra assurance, reviews written by previous customers can be viewed on Trustpilot.
Park Tickets have more than a decade’s experience catering for visitors to all of Orlando’s theme parks. They make the bold claim of offering cheaper tickets than any other online vendor, which they say they are able to do because Disney provide them with significant discounts due to the volume of tickets they sell, which makes it possible for them to reduce their own prices and still make a tidy profit. As for the kind of tickets available, a variety of options are available, including bundled ‘Special’ tickets that include entry to more than one theme par. You can also download a Park Tickets app where you can purchase tickets and manage your orders. Another perk is that Park Tickets do not apply credit card charges to transactions on the site.
