Now I know first off these prices seem a lot of money to those not planning to visit the theme parks this year. However, for those of us who are and have realised there is very little in the way of 'deals' on the park ticklets, these prices are a good few pounds cheaper than most other places are selling them. PLUS this company doesn't charge any fees on your credit card so the price you see is the price you pay.
There are better deals out there for people wanting to visit other parks such as Busch Gardens and Sea World, but for those of you on a two week or three week holiday who's main focus will be on Disney and Universal, these are the best value tickets you can get.
You will get unlimited entry in to both parks for 14 consecutive days. So if you went every day the cost per day would be just £6.57 per adult, which isn't bad at all (although you will still have to pay the rip off $14 parking charges, but I am yet to find a decent method of avoiding those that wont result in your hire car getting towed away!!).
3 Park tickets are £107 per adult and £99 per child. You get the same 14 days but they add Wet and Wild in too for the extra £15. This wasn;t worth it for me as the Ultimate Disney Tickets we have include the Disney Water Parks so we will use those instead (this site has a deal on those tickets too at £233 per adult and £213 per child. This offers 14 days full park access and park hopping for the price of 7 days. It seems expensive again, but there are four main disney parks, two waterparks and also Disney Quest at Downtown Disney you can visit all with the same ticket).
You will receive actual park tickets and not e-tickets for the parks you buy for. This should save you quite a bit of time on your first days visit, especially at Universal Studios I hear.
For car hire we have gone with usrentacar as they came out way cheaper than going direct to the car hire companies. They also have an app on the iphone that you can use to show your booking voucher (although probably best to print it off too just in case technology fails you on the day!!). Edit: http://www.dollar.co.uk
are showing up a little bit cheaper at present (not good for me, but good for those not booked. 3 weeks car hire of a Ford Focus or similar is showing up as £358).
You can get discount cards called 'Kids Eat Free' cards (or something like that. Some ticket sites give those away for free when you book tickets/holidays through them, but I found their prices tended to be a bit more expensive. You can get the for around £10 each and they should save you much more than that if you se them with every meal as most restaurants take them. My friend had two and they didn't even activate them, so if you know someone who has been this year it might be worth seeing if they had theirs activated and borrow them (or buy them off them for half price maybe).
Hope this helps some people out as I have spent many hours trying to sort out our holiday and the above is a quick summary of around a years work and reading to get the best possible deal for our own holiday. Others of you may have different requirements for your holiday so these tips may not suit everyone.
Happy holidaying HotUKDealers.
