    Re: Universal raise one day ticket price to $92.

    This is simply proof that Universal is going to follow in the path of Disney and try to force guests into visiting them for multiple days rather than simply hopping over for one day and then heading back to Disney. 92 dollars per person for 1 day is simply out of most families budgets, however if you buy a multi-day ticket the prices become much more reasonable with a 2 day ticket averaging 63 dollars per day, a 3 day ticket averaging 47 dollars per ticket, and a 4 day ticket averaging 38 dollars per ticket for single park access each day.

    I think this simply shows that they believe that they are ready to compete with Disney head to head to be the destination point for tourists rather than the overflow as they've been in the past.

          I'm told Universal Hollywood will be raising their prices soon (current price is $80). Sea World will be raising prices this summer as well (currently $78). The DL price of $87 seems pretty reasonable when you compare.

          I always find it amusing that when all the theme parks do their annual price increases, Disney gets called greedy and anti-guest, while all the other theme parks get none of those same complaints. It's a case of the biggest target getting hit the most.

            Yes.

            When all said and done, a one day, one park ticket to Universal Orlando is $100.13. Universal is the first park to break the $100 barrier.

            And both of those parks you mentioned offer "buy a day, get a year free" deals. Disney does not.

              Up until recently, Disney always raised their prices first. They started the entire trend of annual price hikes.

                That's a great point. I think your right, this does put Universal in a different category.
