universal orlando tmom dealIt is no big surprise that Orlando, Florida makes the list of favorite Destinations, for nearly all of the Traveling Mom team. When we’re talking “destinations”, you’d be hard pressed to find many other locales that offer more in the way of family fun than, Orlando. This top spot just got a little better with the news that the Universal Orlando Resort is now offering up a FREE day of fun. Heck, Harry Potter himself might have trouble conjuring up a better deal than this.

Residents of the United States and Canada, visiting the Universal Orlando Resort will now receive a third day FREE with the purchase of a 2-day park ticket.  This offer gives visitors even more time to be swept up in the adventure of a lifetime at Universal Orlando’s two theme parks, Universal Studios Florida and Universal’s Islands of Adventure, featuring even more action and excitement than ever before. All-new experiences include the hilarious and heartwarming Despicable Me Minion Mayhem ride, the awe-inspiring nighttime show Universal’s Cinematic Spectacular and the high-energy Universal’s Superstar Parade.

Includes the following benefits:

  • Three days of access to both Universal Orlando theme parks
  • Access to live entertainment at Universal CityWalk and more
  • Park admission also includes access to Universal Orlando’s Holidays celebration, the biggest Mardi Gras celebration outside of New Orleans and the always-rockin’ Summer Concert Series.

Note: Offer valid for purchase through June 16, 2013 and is valid for 14 days from the first use – must be used in full by June 30, 2013. Current price of a 2-Day base ticket is $119.99 per adult, plus tax.

Universal Orlando Resort has also unveiled a brand-new offer for active duty and retired members of the military. Military personnel can now receive a complimentary three-day park-to-park ticket to experience the extraordinary thrills and heart-warming moments Universal Orlando has to offer. Plus, they can also enjoy the world-renowned Blue Man Group show at a discounted rate of $29. These all-new military offers are available now through March 31, 2013 with valid identification on participating bases at ITT or Leisure Travel Service Offices and must be redeemed by June 30, 2013.

As a veteran myself, I love to see it when one of my favorite family destinations shows some “love” to our military members and their families. If you’ve been on the fence about a trip to Orlando, these deals might just be the reason you’ve been waiting for. Travel on!
