Kids cost more at UOR resort on Orbitz/CheapTickets?

Why do they charge extra for rooms with kids at a Universal resorts on Orbitz and CheapTickets? Can you just book for two adults and bring kids? Or call the hotel directly to add them? When pricing through UOR site it doesn’t change the price when you add kids. Thanks!

That’s what you have to do when you book a room with Disney through Orbitz so it’s likely the same. You can’t call direct though because Orbitz is acting as your TA so they won’t talk to you. Most people have had success booking with just the adults and then using the chat feature on Orbitz site to add the kids.

We book through Orbitz as well. I just called Orbitz and they called both UOR and WDW to add the kids. Really very easy.

Super. Thanks for the feedback. I’ve booked through CheapTickets (18% off!) so hopefully it works as easily as Orbitz.


They are the same company.

Is it safe to assume that if you get two rooms that have two queens or doubles each that you can have 3 kids and one adult in each room (+1 infant in one of the rooms)? Is there any way to request connecting rooms? Do the hotels at Universal have connecting rooms?
