Spending a few days at a theme park could be just what you need to break away from the daily grind and enjoy some fun activities with friends and family members.

Here are some ways to save money on tickets to America’s most-visited theme parks and attractions:

Saving Money on Tickets to Walt Disney World Resort

If you’re a Florida resident and can provide proof of residency, you are eligible for discounts on theme park admission and annual passes. The Walt Disney World Resort also offers military discounts and seasonal offers where you may be eligible for a discount on tickets for larger parties. Members of AARP can earn extra days at the parks when purchasing a 3-day Magic Your Way with Park Hopper ticket. If you’re already in the Orlando area, consider buying tickets from a ticket broker at a discounted price. Book a vacation package or order tickets from AAA for exclusive member discounts year round.

Getting Discounts on Universal Studios Tickets

Whether you are visiting Universal Studios in Orlando, Florida or Universal City, California, you can enjoy the parks at a discounted rate with a little planning. Purchasing tickets in advance from the official Universal Studios website can save you $20 off the gate price of a multi-day ticket. If you plan on visiting the parks several times over the course of the year, consider buying an Annual Pass for unlimited access for a set price minus any blackout dates. AAA members are eligible for Universal Studios discount tickets at the gate and when purchasing tickets in advance online. Florida, Georgia, and California residents are eligible for local resident promotions throughout the year and military members can take advantage of Universal Studios discount tickets year round.
