Just wondering if there would be any reason not to get Discovery Cove tickets through UT? We plan to go Super Bowl Sunday 2022. There are 13 of us going plus a baby.
I second this. I saved a ton of money by purchasing direct during the Black Friday sale. In addition to tickets, I was able to get 50% off quick queue at Sea World and Busch, in addition to a discount on the all-day dining packages.No reason not to, but unless it is a really good deal I personally would wait. Feb is the slow season at DC (and SeaWorld, etc). In the past, you could get really good deals on DC directly starting around Sept/Oct, and especially on Black Friday week.
My DC day coming up in May was $202 w/ +3 park add-on including tax on Black Friday. Same ticket now is $539 before tax. A few years ago the Black Friday deal wasn't as good, but all days were priced at the cheapest price, so still a reasonable savings at that time.
If you buy direct from DC, it is fully refundable. UT charges at least the 5% restocking fee - that'd be quite a lot for 13 tickets. So IF I were going to buy now, it would be direct. But honestly I wouldn't, they've been pretty consistent w/ good Fall deals.
