We are trying to go for a four day weekend in January. I priced out a pacakage on the Universal site and it was about $2100 for 3 nights and 5 people. The. I priced out just tickets with express pass and it was $1900. I can’t believe that the difference was only $200 for 3 nights at a deluxe resort. What has your experience been?
That’s pretty typical, if you can fill a room staying at a deluxe resorts is much more cost effective than buying express.
It’s true, the deluxe resorts are actually a great value when you figure in the express pass benefit. If you are looking for even better numbers, try Cheaptickets.com for the onsite hotel room, be sure to use the current coupon code which is listed on their homepage. Then Undercovertourist.com for slightly discounted tickets. Good luck deal hunting.
