The special is only good when booked as a package.Universal does not offer this when purchasing tickets alone. When you break it down that way the extra $10 it would cost buying the 3 day pass on universals site seems the better deal.I guess to those that dont know a 3 day pass is only slightly higher than a 2 day pass it would sound like a good deal. The packages seem to be offered through AA, UsAir, and Delta. Must be their incentive to book through them. Still much cheaper to book the hotel seperately using one of the discounts available (Entertainment book, AAA, AP, )then purchase your tickets the same way.On the other hand if you get a great deal on Air with your package it may be beneficial. I priced it out many different ways for March and it continues to benefit me to do everything seperate. Hope you have better luck with a package than I did Patty!
