Discount Tickets and Deals in Orlando This Summer

Discounted Tickets to Orlando Show

Cirque du Soleil is a fun activity in OrlandoOne of the nicest shows in Orlando is Cirque du Soleil at Downtown Disney. Recently the La Nouba show celebrated its 15th anniversary. Over 9 million guests have attended this Orlando show!

Because Cirque du Soleil itself is celebrating its 30th anniversary, a few changes have been made to the show. You will now see a clown act and balancing act in addition to the stunning aero-gymnastic performances, high wire and flying trapeze acts.

During the summer you have a chance to see this show using discounted tickets. From July through September 27, 2014, the cheap tickets are only $49. Other tickets will cost $59, $74, $89 and front and center tickets are only $104 (plus tax). The show is performed Tuesdays through Saturday at 6:00 p.m. and 9:00 p.m. Visit lanouba.com for more information.

Discounted Fun Card Available

Manta Ride at SeaWorldA Fun Card to SeaWorld and Busch Gardens is a pass that allows re-entry into the theme park. There are restrictions, but in many ways, it is the least expensive way to enjoy a Florida theme park. Because the Fun Card is already a good deal, it rarely is found discounted, but we found a deal for over 25% off!

ORLANDO TOURIST TIP: If you are familiar with Groupon, you may already know about this Orlando theme park deal. Normally your cost would be $95 or more plus tax, but with the Groupon, your cost is only $75. The catch? You only have a few more days to get it.

You only have to know the first and last name of each ticket holder, so you can purchase one for a number of friends and enjoy the theme parks for the rest of the summer. While it doesn’t cover parking or some special events, there are plenty of days left in the year to make this one of the best discounted theme park deals around.

If you hear about any other deeply discounted ticket deals in Orlando, let us know! We love to pass on tips to Orlando tourists and residents. Enjoy the parks this summer!

There are different sections you’ll want to experience. A nostalgic area (town) Holiday Hills will remind you of the good ol’ days. New areas such as Christmas Time Terrace and Mistletoe Memories will surprise you with new experiences. Christmas Time Terrace is located in Jungala where a 40-foot Christmas tree comes alive every fifteen minutes with spectacular dancing lights. If you’re at the park with your sweetheart, check out the Mistletoe Memories garden where romantic flowers and sparkling white twinkle lights fill the trees overhead and set the scene for sweet moments with loved ones.

Plenty of other lights are also on display throughout the Central Florida theme park, and the sights from atop many of the rides are spectacular (not all rides are open for this special event). Other sights include a life-size representation of the Holy Nativity, made from nothing but plants! ORLANDO TOURIST TIP: Want to step into a larger-than-life-sized greeting card? Head to Jingle Bell Junction, just one of the many perfect photo opportunities that exist for you and your family. Want to play in the snow? Yes!

Of course a night like this just wouldn’t be complete without visiting the ol’ jolly man himself. Kids of all ages will appreciate visiting Santa Claus in his private study and having their photo taken by a professional photographer in this lovely Christmas setting. Mrs. Claus is there too, baking holiday treats for everyone. Where are the elves? Making presents of course! Gift purchases at Busch Gardens are sure to be a hit on everyone’s list. Christmas Town has everything from collectables to toys, apparel and more. If you are a pass member, you’ll save 10% when you shop at the park. Many gifts can be purchased online as well.

Discover Great Discounted Tickets

Discovery Cove offers discounted tickets

September is a great month to find specials for local residents in Florida. Orlando theme parks have slowed down and discount tickets are plentiful. SeaWorld Orlando has advertised their $50 week day special, so most people know about this great deal. A lesser-known discount ticket special can be found for their sister park Discovery Cove, and includes other park admission.

For the rest of this year, Florida residents should definitely consider taking advantage of this deal. For as little as $149, you can visit Discovery Cove and after that visit, go to SeaWorld or Aquatica for free! As long as you go to Discovery Cove first – and before December 31, 2013, you’ll be able to go to the other parks through the end of next January.

What sets Discovery Cove apart is the Dolphin Swim Day Resort package, which is as low as $219 for Florida residents during this special. Treat yourself and take advantage of this greatly discounted Orlando attraction ticket. You’ll have an experience of a lifetime. This package includes food and snacks, the dolphin swim, use of snorkel gear and more. Combined with the fact that you get in to the other parks for free, makes this a fabulous deal.

Make your day even more special by adding the SeaVenture experience. This is the underwater walking tour where you adorn dive helmets and join schools of fish, rays and other sea creature up close and personal. You do not need to be SCUBA certified, however, some rules still do apply. You should not drink alcoholic beverages before the tour, nor should you fly for a few hours after.

Proof of a valid Florida residency is required at check-in, and the offer cannot be combined with any other special. If you are not a Florida resident, special ticket deals can be found for you too! Instead of $149, your price will be about $169 – $199; for the Dolphin Swim package, your price will be $229 – $259, and the SeaVenture price at $59.

Since the temperatures in Central Florida are still quite warm, there is no difference in visiting Discovery Cove now or in the heat of the summer. There will be fewer visitors, shorter lines, more room to play in the water and the sweet relief from the heat under shaded trees and umbrellas. Swimming with the dolphins is such a treat, everyone should experience it once in their lifetime. At this discounted ticket price, you might even offer to share this experience with your best friends. After all, memories are priceless, and these Orlando ticket deals don’t get much more affordable.

However, discount Orlando tickets as well as other deals and promotions can give people access to these fun rides without having to wait in line. There are also passes that give people admission to several theme parks. It all depends on the type of package a person is signed up for. ORLANDO TOURIST TIP: Research the Orlando attraction that you want to attend and see what type of ‘fast-pass’ or other system they offer to help shorten wait lines. Almost all of the major theme parks offer something to help cut the wait.

There are discount Orlando tickets that come with discount cards. These cards are great for hotels and restaurants. It can also be helpful when people go shopping and buying souvenirs.

Most travelers say that going to a trip or on a vacation is not complete until they have actually bought something from the souvenir shop. The discount card gives people great savings for these items.
