First, there is baby swap at IOA and US, correct?
Second, we are needing to be pretty cheap-so I am thinking offsite (though I haven't researched this yet) - do any of the offsite hotels have shuttles to the parks?

I'm sure I have a million more questions...sorry if these have already been asked-haven't had a chance to read through this whole thing yet.


Yes there are baby swaps but only on certain rides but they are at both parks.

Second part...yes they do have shuttles taking you to the theme parks..for FREE!!! I would reccommend staying at the DoubleTree right across from the park entrance. If there is anything else just send me a message.

Just an FYI, but you're answering a question from April...of 2008. I wouldn't hang around your Inbox for that one.

Does anyone know the discounts an AP holder gets on multi day 2 park tickets? I am having trouble finding it on the website.

Park Admission prices

hi - new to this discussion and hope I didn't miss the answer to my question somewhere:

DH and I are planning to spend the Wednesday of our upcoming trip at IOA after we visit KSC for a few morning hours. My question is does USO/IOA offer a discounted admission price for say, after 2:00pm? I had a webpage that I found through google bookmarked back in the early spring that offered $60 tickets after 2:00 but when I went back to that bookmark the offer was gone and I'd really like to try and save some money on the tickets since we will not be able to spend the entire day there.

Thanks in advance!

Hello and welcome! Universal no longer offers discounted tickets for admission in the afternoon.

I confess I have not read through all 16 pages, so I apologize if this has been asked/answered!
6 years ago while on an extended Disney trip, DH and I purchased "2-day/2-park" tickets. Unfortunately, on our first day we got a bit of food poisoning and never used day #2.
Do these 2-day passes ever expire? I really thought that they were non-expiring; perhaps that has changed in the last six years?
If day #2 is still good, do the tix HAVE to be used for the other park &/or Cityscape or can we return to the same park as last time?
DH is going to be in Orlando for a business trip for a couple of weeks and thought he could go to Universal on weekends.
Thanks!

Your best bet would be to talk to Guest Services about the GAC cards prior to arriving. I think it would work better than baby swap.

I did not know they had GAC cards at Universal !!! That is awesome !! We get them at Disney and it works great!! It's hard for us without them as these folks cannot be left alone just like a child !!!
