    Has anyone bought tickets for Disney/universal from park-tickets.com? They are very reasonable but I have tried to contact them and had no reply.

    Hi,


    I'm looking at buying Orlando theme park tickets. We are there in August 9-23. Two adults and two kids. Never been before so I am baffled. We are staying in a villa on Windsor Park with a hire car.

    Spent hours looking already! We want WDW, Universal and SeaWorld (not sure if we want to include BG???).

    The Park-hopper (Only 9 days WDW but I think this would be fine with having to visit the other parks) at £1704. Less £5 MSE offer (thanks )

    Any opinions on the value of this?

    They also give you the option to add wet'n'wild for £10 each, any comments on that? There are already water parks included so not sure if it is required?

    Any help appreciated!!

    Thanks,


    Paul.

    I realise you are looking for different numbers of days and kids tix too but there isn't an awful lot of difference betwen the prices.

    A good place to search is HERE. At the top of the page is a yellow post it note with links to various sellers. Some offer free tickets to Legoland but seem a bit dearer, another a 30 min airboat ride etc. confusing but worth a look.

    Last time we went was a similar time to you and it was really hot and humid, so bear that in mind and try to plan in some relaxation time, maybe pop back to the villa for a chill as the parks do get almost unbearable around mid-day early afternoon.

    Security Issue? Orlando Attraction Tickets
    Hi
    Earlier this year I purchased Universal tickets from Orlando Attraction Tickets (I had issues purchasing them online so had to call their helpline who cancelled my online purchase and took payment over the phone).


    Our departure date loomed and tickets still hadn't arrived so I contacted Orlando Attraction Tickets (a little nervous as MSE page warned this isn't an official seller). The helpline staff were wonderful and immediately reissued the tickets and had them couriered to us. They arrived promptly and worked just fine.


    BUT... shortly after this I found that my credit card security had been compromised (by which I mean the credit card company called me and I recognised a number of fraudulent transactions). I recalled that when I had issues with online ordering the second time I opened the form it had 'stored' my credit card details (including my security code) and was automatically suggesting these.


    I did mention this to the Helpline staff but they said I should change my browser's settings (ie not their website's problem).


    I've just gone back to the payment page and there's no security padlock on the address bar as you'd expect (I'm so used to this being there that I hadn't checked previously...)


    I'm no techie so maybe this isn't a security issue and this was just a coincidence...but I've contacted the company to let them know about it.


    Any thoughts?

    Can you 'share' any of these tickets/packages between 2 different families?

    Was looking at both 14 day packages for WDW and the Seaworld/Busch ones?

    Plus a trip to Legoland?

    When you initialise the tickets at the parks they take your fingerprint. From then on you have to present the ticket and the machine checks your fingerprint. Both must match otherwise you don't get in
    Private Parking Tickets - Make sure you put your Subject Access Request in after 25th May - It's free & ask for everything, don't forget the DVLA

    Just been on the Orlando Attractions site which says it is recommended by MSE. Their 'full monty' ticket doesn't include the Wet 'n' Wild water park. To add this park costs £10 per person extra.

    When I spoke to them they would not offer any discount at all for the 5 tickets we were going to buy. That's £2500 they lost out on.

    Weekday Seaworld tickets ?
    Hi,

    The 'cheap disney tickets' page says the following under the 'seaworld need to knows' section (5) :

    If you're after a no-frills day ticket to one park for a single day, these are available via its US site (don't forget to factor in taxes and charges). For a weekday ticket, you can save $17 off the anytime one-day single park ticket - it's $70 as opposed to $87. That's around £53 at todays rates for a weekday ticket, £65 for an anytime ticket.

    As far as I can see though these weekday 1 day passes are only open to US/Canadian residents. Does anyone know if this is available to us lot ?

    Thanks.

    Wet and wild is owned by Universal. They are building a new water park, Volcano Bay, which will open in 2017.

    Wet and wild will close on 31 December 2016.
