Orlando Frequently Asked Questions

    All of your Orlando Frequently Asked Questions answered by Attraction Tickets Direct's Orlando Experts, so you can purchase your Orlando attraction tickets with ease...

     

    General

     

    Do you send us real tickets?

     

    Yes – wherever possible, we send gate-ready real tickets to save you time on holiday. All of the tickets that we issue for Walt Disney World, Universal Orlando and the SeaWorld parks are actual tickets. And, for many other attractions such as Kennedy Space Centre, Disneyland Paris, Port Aventura and Disneyland California, we also issue real, gate-ready tickets. For attractions where it is impossible for us to obtain real tickets or where a real ticket won’t save you any time, we issue e-tickets or vouchers.

    Do you send us a deposit option?

    Yes. You can secure your tickets with a deposit of just £25 per person (travelling in your party). Your balance will need to be settled 6 weeks before your departure date.

    Can I pay for my tickets in installments?

    Yes you can. To make your ticket purchase as financially comfortable for you as possible, we give you the option to settle your ticket balance in one transaction or in instalments. As long as your balance is settled 6 weeks before you travel, how you pay is up to you.

    Do you charge credit card or booking fees?

    No, and we won’t charge you any booking fees either. In fact, there are no hidden costs whatsoever when you book with Attraction Tickets Direct.

    How soon can I expect my tickets to be delivered?

    We will deliver your tickets to you within 5 - 7 days. You will receive an email from us once your tickets have been dispatched.

    How much do you charge for deliveries?

    We offer a free 7 day delivery service. No matter the size of your delivery, we will always deliver your tickets to you FREE of charge within the UK. If you wish to receive your tickets quicker than 7 days then express options are available for a small fee.

    What if I am travelling in the next few days? Can I get my tickets sooner?

    We always have stock of all the major attraction tickets and ‘3-day’ and ‘next day’ delivery options are availablefor a small fee. You can select these delivery options when booking online or give us a call. Our lines are open 9am to 9pm, 7 days a week and we’re always happy to help.

    What delivery method do you use?

    All of our tickets are dispatched by secure courier. If you would prefer your tickets to be sent to your place of work, we would send them to you by Royal Mail Special Delivery.

    Do I need to sign for my tickets on delivery?

    If you’re at home at the time of delivery, you can sign for your tickets. However, if you’re not home and our courier considers the address secure enough to post the tickets through the letter box they will do so, logging GPS co-ordinates and taking a photo of the door as proof of delivery. This is only if it is secure, i.e. one front door and one letterbox - flats and apartments are not likely to qualify as secure enough for this. In the instance, we will send your tickets via Royal Mail Special Delivery, which will require a signature.

    Do you offer any protection against my delivery?

    Yes, we offer Cancellation Protection to protect your entire ticket booking, which must be purchased at the time of booking or placing a deposit for your tickets. In the unfortunate event that your travel plans need to be changed, due to airline strikes, natural disaster or personal reasons, we will waive our cancellation fees AND refund your purchase in FULL. Read more information on our Cancellation Protection.

    I want to book with Attraction Tickets Direct, but have seen the tickets I want at a cheaper price on another site, do you price match?

    We won’t be beaten on price. So, if you find the same tickets being sold more cheaply elsewhere and want to purchase with us, we will match the price. Even if you have already purchased your tickets with us and find the same tickets at a cheaper price elsewhere within 7 days of your purchase, we will refund you the difference! However, we reserve the right to withdraw any exclusive added value or special offers when we match prices. Read more about our Price Promise here…

    I am travelling with a young child. Do they still require theme park tickets?

    This all depends on the age of the child you are travelling with. Children under the age of 3 are considered infants and do not require Orlando attraction tickets for admission to Orlando’s major theme parks. For children aged 3 – 9, there are specified tickets with a special child rate. Anyone aged 10 years upwards are required to have adult tickets for park admission. Unfortunately, there are no OAP rates.

    If we are planning our 2019 Orlando holiday in 2018, do we have to wait for 2019 theme park tickets to be released or can we purchase the 2018tickets currently on sale?

    Most theme park tickets expire on the last day of the year – the 31st December 20XX. Therefore, you need to travel with a ticket valid for the year you are travelling. If you are planning a theme park holiday for 2019 and wish to book tickets for your holiday, you would need to wait for the 2019 theme park tickets to be released and purchase accordingly. 

    If my holiday falls between both December and January, will a ticket valid in December 2018 for example, still be valid for January 2019?

    Yes, most tickets will be valid from the day you first activate it. However, your ticket must be activated on or before the 31st December and then it will continue to grant you access in the new-year for the number of days stated on the ticket from the first day of park entry. 

    Which major Orlando theme parks do you sell for?
    • Disney World Florida
    • Universal Orlando Resort
    • Wet n Wild Orlando
    • SeaWorld Orlando
    • Busch Gardens Tampa
    • Aquatica
    • Discovery Cove
    • LEGOLAND Florida
    • Kennedy Space Centre
    Why is is better to buy my tickets in the UK than the US?

    Theme parks and attractions make up a huge part of an Orlando holiday. Therefore, having any theme park visits and tickets planned and financially accounted for before you travel gives you the opportunity to offload these costs, making it easier to concentrate and budget more effectively on the remaining elements of your holiday, such as dining, shopping and any other extras.

    Buying your tickets from a reputable UK travel company in £ sterling and with a credit or debit card is the best way to protect your purchase.

    Moreover, buying your tickets in the UK entitles you to any special offers or incentives exclusive to the UK that we have running at the time of your booking and we always have plenty.

    Some of my tickets have a signature strip on them. When should I sign them?

    We advise you to wait till you set off on your travels to sign your theme park tickets. If you should have to cancel or change your holiday it will be easier and quicker for you to obtain a partial or full refund if the tickets are unmarked.

    Why are multi-day tickets in the UK better value for money than purchasing tickets at the park gate?

    Price

    For example, at the time of writing, a one day Disney ticket purchased at the gate costs $124 (plus tax). Our Disney 14 Day Ultimate Ticket works out at approximately £24 a day. Similarly, a one Universal Studios or Islands of Adventure ticket costs $105 + tax but our 2 Park Bonus tickets (valid for 14 days) works out at £11 a day.

    Parks

    Walt Disney World Florida, Universal Orlando Resort and SeaWorld Parks and Entertainment each consist of several individual parks. For example, Walt Disney World Florida covers 42,000 acres of land and is comprised of four major parks and two water parks.

    A single day Disney ticket purchased at the gate will grant you access to that respective park, valid for that day only. Should you wish to visit another Disney park the same day, you would be required to purchase an additional ticket. On the other hand, our Combo and Disney Ultimate tickets grant you unlimited admission to multiple parks – so you can come, go and visit as many parks in one day as you please.

    Flexibility

    You can visit more than one park in a day with our Orlando Combination tickets and come and go as you please.

    Attraction Tickets Direct has a whole range of combination and multiple day admission tickets designed to give you the maximum freedom and flexibility you need to explore Orlando’s major theme parks.  Our Orlando Combo tickets not only allow you to visit more than one park in a single day, but will grant you unlimited admission to the stated parks for up to 21 days.

    Is the Disney/Universal Combo and/or Freedom ticket valid for 14 days?

    Our Disney/Universal Combo Ticket and Freedom Tickets are made up of two or three individual tickets - each ticket individually offering you access to multiple parks, for the duration of fourteen days for just one price. Each ticket is valid separately for fourteen days from the first day you use the ticket, so you are free to use them independently and activate them as you please.

    What is the difference between the Orlando FlexTicket Plus and the 6 park Orlando Combo ticket?

    You will notice that the Orlando FlexTicket Plus and the 6 Park Orlando Combo Ticket both offer the same parks, although the Orlando FlexTicket Plus is the slightly more expensive option. This is because the Orlando FlexTicketPlus allows you to park your car in more than one the theme park for one single price. So, if you plan to visit SeaWorld and Universal Orlando in the same day with an Orlando FlexTicket Plus, you'd only be required to pay for your parking in the first park you visit. With an Orlando Combo ticket you'd be required to pay for your parking in each theme park you visit. The 6 Park Orlando Combo ticket is better value for the majority of people.

    Orlando


    When is the best time to visit Orlando?

    Orlando has great weather all year round, but if you want the best times weather-wise (i.e. not too hot!) it’s a good idea to travel April –June or September – November. For lots of extra free events, travel around the holidays (Easter, Halloween, and Christmas), although it’s important to remember it may be busier during these times. It’s a good idea to avoid UK school holidays if possible, but a great idea to travel during UK school holidays which don’t exist in the US as the parks will be quieter!

    What is the weather like in Orlando?

    Orlando has a tropical climate which means during the summer months heavy showers are likely. These showers are very short-lived however, and normal service of hot sunshine will quickly resume. In August, it can become extremely hot and muggy so it’s important to pack appropriately. Orlando enjoys moderate temperatures all year round so you can expect it to be much warmer than the UK in the winter months.

    Which Orlando airport is nearest to the theme parks?

    Orlando International Airport (MCO) is the closest airport to the Orlando parks at around a half hour’s drive from The Magic Kingdom. By contrast, Orlando Sanford International Airport is 1 hour 45 minutes’ drive from MK.

    Should I fly to Orlando International Airport or Orlando Sanford International Airport?

    Although Orlando International Airport is closer to the theme parks, neither airport is too far from the parks if you are hiring a car. Driving from Orlando Sanford International Airport might add 45 minutes to your journey, but if you find a great flight deal you may consider it worth it. If you want to use Disney’s Magical Express to take you to your Disney resort hotel from the airport, you will need to fly to Orlando International Airport.

    What should I wear to the Orlando theme parks?

    The parks in Orlando are huge, so there’s usually a lot of walking involved. It’s important to wear comfortable shoes to avoid sore feet. We would also recommend comfortable clothing that will dry easily if you get soaked on the water rides.

    When will 2020 tickets for Walt Disney World be released?

    Usually tickets for the following year are released around April. If you'd like to be alerted as soon as they're available, email our sales team on sales@attraction-tickets-direct.co.uk and ask them to notify you.

    Do I need to carry ID on me to get into the Orlando parks?

    It is not essential but it is advisable, and you may wish to leave a copy in your room in case of emergency. There is a policy in the US to request ID from anyone who appears under the age of 35 when purchasing alcoholic drinks, so you may get caught out! You will need your Disney magic band to enter the parks for Extra Magic Hours as well.

    Getting Around Orlando


    Do I need to hire a car in Orlando?

    Although hiring a car can make your holiday in Orlando a little easier, it is not a necessity. There are great transport links from the major hotels to the airport and free or public transport between the parks. Where there are no public transport links, cabs are a reasonably affordable option.

    What is the I-Ride Trolley?

    The I-Ride Trolley is a bus service that covers the International Drive Resort area. There are two lines, the red and the green line, which cover north and south International Drive. The red line also takes guests to SeaWorld Orlando. For more information on maps and routes, click here.

    What time does the I-Ride Trolley operate?

    The I-Ride Trolley runs from 8am until 10:30pm at night, so you may need to take cabs if leaving the parks late at night or attending a dinner show.

    How much does it cost to take the I-Ride Trolley?

    An individual adult ticket is $2 per ride, but it can work out more economical to purchase a 14-day pass for $18 instead. You can purchase these passes online before you go.

    How do I get from a Disney hotel to Universal Studios?

    There is no transport service from the Disney hotels to Universal Studios. The best way to reach the parks is to go via public transport to Disney Springs and then take a cab from there.

    Walt Disney World Resort


    How many parks are there at Disney World?

    There are 6 parks at Walt Disney World: The Magic Kingdom, Animal Kingdom, Disney’s Hollywood Studios, Epcot, Blizzard Beach and Typhoon Lagoon.

    How big is Disney World?

    The Walt Disney World Resort covers a whopping 47 square miles (roughly the same size as San Francisco!).

    How do I get from the Disney hotels to the parks?

    The most convenient way to get from the hotels to the parks is either by using the onsite complimentary transport or by driving. You can learn more about the monorail, bus and water transport routes here: https://disneyworld.disney.go.com/guest-services/monorail-transportation/

     
    What is My Memory Maker?

    My Memory Maker is Disney’s professional photo package, which allows you to have your photo taken at photo pass locations all over the parks. You can later download and share these photos for your friends and family, or to keep as a precious memory. In 2018 and 2019, all adult Disney tickets for Orlando will include My Memory Maker.

    How does My Memory Maker work?

    Before you go away, you need to create an account on My Disney Experience, which will allow you to sync your photos to an account when you go away. When you arrive, if you’re staying at a Disney resort hotel you’ll be given a wristband or, if you’re staying outside the resort, you will receive a swipe card. Every time you go to a Photo Pass location, you can swipe your card or wrist band at the station to download your professional photo onto your My Disney Experience account.

    What is My Disney Experience?

    My Disney Experience is a planning page and mobile app that helps you to plan your Disney holiday. Through the page you can book your FastPass+, dining reservations and download and customise your My Memory maker photos. While you’re in the parks, the app is a handy tool for finding out show times, wait times, character meet and greet locations and just to see where you are in the park.

    Do we need to book Disney Fast Passes?

    You do not need to book Fast Passes, but it is strongly advisable. Especially if you'd like to reserve a time for the most popular attractions and if you’d like to do a character meet. The most popular rides can get very busy, particularly during peak periods, so you can avoid waiting in long lines by booking a fast pass in advance. This means you can save time and do more at the parks.

    What are Extra Magic Hours?

    Extra Magic Hours are for customers staying at Disney Resort hotels. If you are staying at one of the Disney hotels you can enter 1 of the 4 parks each day an hour earlier than other visitors or stay up to 2 hours later, absolutely free!

    What are the quietest days to visit the Disney parks?

    September is historically the quietest month at the parks, with children in the US and the UK back at school after the summer holidays. Weekdays in early January, February, October, November and December are usually quieter as well.

    When are the Disney parks busiest?

    Weekends in May, every day in June, July and through to mid-August are extremely busy. Crowds are also expected during popular seasonal events and in the holidays such as Easter, Thanksgiving and Christmas.

    What is the Magical Express?

    Disney’s Magical Express is a complimentary coach and luggage service which collects you from Orlando International Airport and drops you off at your Disney resort hotel. You don’t even need to go to baggage claim to pick up your luggage, which will follow you to the hotel and be delivered to your room within 3 hours.

    How do I book the Magical Express?

    You book your Magical Express transfers at the same time as you book your Disney resort hotel, so please consult your booking agent.

    Where can I meet the Disney characters?

    Disney characters do not walk around the parks, instead they host meet and greets so they can be sure they can meet all their fans! Meet and greets take place in lots of different areas of the parks, so you can often see your favourite characters in a variety of different themed costumes. You can book a meet and greet time in advance through the Disney Fast pass system or, if you haven’t made reservations, check with a cast member about character meet and greet times and be prepared to queue for a little while.

    How many days would you need to visit Disney to make a 14-day pass worthwhile?

    A 1-day hopper pass to Walt Disney World costs $155 (£104.10) at the gate (2016 prices). A 14-day ticket is £429 (2019 prices), therefore if you spent at least 4 days in the parks, you would make your money’s worth on the ticket. Most customers spend at least 1 day in each of the parks, totalling 6 full days (plus revisits!). You also benefit from being able to book fast passes in advance and not having to queue at the turnstiles.

    The Magic Kingdom


    How long do you need in Magic Kingdom?

    Most customers spend at least 1 day in Magic Kingdom but many prefer to take another half or even a full day to make sure they get to ride all the attractions and meet all their favourite characters. That’s why a flexible ticket is ideal for the Disney parks; you can hop between them and revisit your favourite parks.

    How much does it cost to park at The Magic Kingdom?

    It is $22 (2018 prices) a day to park at any Walt Disney World park. This means that if you hop from one park to another in the same day, your parking ticket will still be valid and you won’t need to pay twice.

    How much does a 1-day ticket for the Magic Kingdom cost at the gate?

    An adult 1-day ticket to the Magic Kingdom is $126 (2018 prices).

    Are Christmas events at Magic Kingdom included in the ticket price?

    Some Christmas events such as the Christmas fireworks and parades are included. However if you wish to go to Mickey’s Very Merry Christmas Party, you will need to purchase a separate ticket, which can be purchased through us in the months leading up to the event.

    Disney's Animal Kingdom


    How long do you need at The Animal Kingdom?

    Most customers spend at least 1 day in the Animal Kingdom but many prefer to take another half day to make sure they get to ride all the attractions and meet all their favourite characters, especially with the recently added Pandora - World of AVATAR to explore.

    Epcot
