Universal Studio's Islands of Adventure[1] theme park includes Marvel's Super Hero Island, Toon Lagoon, Jurassic Park, The Lost Continent, Seuss Landing and The Wizarding World of Harry Potter[2] at the single ticket price.

Three-day, single-park tickets cost $136 for adults or $124 for children, while a four-day pass costs about $146 for adults or $133 for children. A family of four may expect to pay $460-$584 for multiple-day passes, depending on the number of days chosen and the ages of the children.
  • One-day, park-to-park admission costs about $123 for adults or $117 for children and includes access to both Universal's Islands of Adventure and the adjacent Universal Studios Florida[3] . A two-day pass to both parks costs about $140 for adults and $130 for children.

What should be included:
  • All rides and attractions are typically included in the ticket price of each park.
Additional costs:
  • Outside food and beverages are not allowed in the park. Dining options vary from sandwiches ($7-$9), barbecue plates ($9-$13) or hamburgers ($6-$8). Universal Meal Deals[5] that offer all-you-can-eat dining options at several locations between both parks cost about $21 per adult or $10 per child. Add on an unlimited drink option for $9. Beer prices are about $5.50-$7 each.
  • General parking[6] costs $15 for cars or $20 for preferred parking and spots for buses and RVs.
  • Hotels located on the Universal Studios and Islands of Adventure Orlando properties cost about $220-$650 per night, depending on room size and travel dates. On-site accommodations[7] offer the advantage during multi-day stays of not requiring any driving at the end of a long park day and quick access to attractions in the morning. For example, the on-site Loews Portofino Bay Hotel[8] offers rooms for about $340-$390, depending on travel date and room size. Travel a few miles from the park for a hotel priced about $40-$350. For example, the Sheraton Orlando Downtown Hotel[9] offers rooms from about $140-$180 per night, depending on size of room and travel dates.
Discounts:
  • Purchase tickets online for a savings of about $20 each on multiple-day admissions.
  • Military discounts are available, but tickets must be purchased prior to arrival. Discounts vary by base.
  • AAA discounts[10] are also available. Save 10-20% on hotel rooms, depending on travel date. Also save about $5-$35 per park ticket, depending on number of days.

  • Tickets may be purchased online[11] at Universal Orlando.com.
