How to Find Authentic Orlando Attraction Tickets

Are you looking for Orlando attraction tickets at a discount, but want to make sure you aren’t wasting your money on a scam?  When it comes to many things in life, and especially in travel, it’s important to use some common sense and good judgment before purchasing anything.  While there are plenty of highly reputable and trustworthy Orlando discount ticket sellers out there, there are unfortunately those that are simply out to make a quick buck or to sell you something else.  Travelers that aren’t careful about where they buy their tickets from may find themselves with unusable tickets and no money left in their wallets.

It’s not always easy to spot a ticket scam in Orlando, but there are some simple signs that travelers should look out for.  First off, never purchase a ticket from a scalper or from a random booth on the street outside the park.  Unless you have researched a company online and verified that they are legitimate, you could just end up buying a worthless ticket, or worse, one that was stolen from someone else.  If the ticket is for Disney World, which now uses finger scan technology to prevent the use of stolen tickets, you’ll find yourself unable to get into the park and short the money you paid the ticket seller.

If you plan on spending more than one day at the parks, look for discounted multi-day passes.  These costs much, much less than if you purchased a ticket at the park gates each day, and you’ll be able to relax and enjoy your visit, versus trying to pack in all of the attractions in one day.

The key to finding great deals on Orlando attractions is that if something looks to good to be true or if the ticket seller just doesn’t seem official, run away!  Save your money for a company that is reputable and that offers the best deals on the attractions that you most want to see.  It’s a smart way to go and it can be incredibly fun to see just how much you can save.

Is MagicBand the Answer to Next Generation Theme Park Experience?

iPhone or Ticket???

iPhone or Ticket???

The Official Ticket Center ~ Since its announcement in 2013, Disney World’s NextGen Project ~ MyMagic+ is seen as a landmark move on part of the company in taking future theme park vacations to the next level. Being termed as Next Generation Experience, the billion dollar Project features a new ride reservation system called the FastPass+ (FP+), which replaces the traditional Fastpass(FP) program. The Project also brings a My Disney Experience (website and mobile app) and a MagicBand system, which integrates all our vacation essentials with a magical wristband. Whether it’s the Disney Resort room key that you are looking for or a standard park tickets; whether you are making payments or managing the reservations, the RFID-enabled wristband is all that you need today.

Truly, Disney seems to have brought a substantial change in the way we looked forward to our future theme park vacations. The pursuit for a more advance and flexible theme park experience probably comes to an end with this billion dollar future vacation initiative. Also the rolling out of MyMagic+ already started influencing guests’ experiences today. And the company is really excited about it.

However, there are some speculations about MyMagic+ that question the credibility of the project and its features such as the MagicBand system. According to the latest development in the hotel access system today guests will soon be able to use their cell phones as room keys. The visitors simply have to tap or scan their smart phones to enter their rooms. As such there are debates on whether fans would rather go for a more expensive and dedicated Disney access system or just simply prefer to have their cell phones as mode of admissions. For some it seems Disney is at the wrong end of the stick with such a huge investment. The company should have waited for some more time and follow the industry standards by using cell phones as admissions instead of creating its own costly access system.

Sure the use of cell phones to manage our theme park access system will be much simpler and less expensive. And it’s also true that possibilities to incorporate the use of cell phones in other areas of future theme park vacations are many. But then MagicBand is a true Disney property – already installed and available for use. Also by developing its own system Disney ensures a better control over the experiences it promises to fulfill in future vacations. And I think visiting the parks with the new Wristbands is surely a unique experience.

Getting Bigger and More Exciting For the Muggles

New Diagon Ally at Universal Orlando Resort

New Diagon Ally at Universal Orlando Resort

The Official Ticket Center ~ Being a great fan of the world famous Boy Wizard and his amazing world of magic, I am very much excited about the new Harry Potter Expansions at the Universal Studios Florida Park. The prospect of exploring the London side of the story where you will be visiting the Diagon Alley or take a dark ride through the Gringotts vaults, or better still the opportunity to ride on the real Hogarth Express is incredible. And often the anticipation of a surprising journey from London’s King’s Cross station to Hogsmeade Village keeps me excited about an experience that can revolutionize the very nature of theme-park-entertainment today. Thanks to Universal Orlando for coming up with such a historic and world’s first ever multi-park fun initiative in honor of its most prized possession.

The new Diagon Alley attractions include two of the most promising Harry Potter rides for the muggles at Universal Orlando. Inspired with next-gen style animation and interactivity the Gringotts dark ride will take you through the Gringotts vaults, where guests will have encounters with dark wizards, including Voldemort. The most surprising Hogwarts Express ride on the other hand will connect visitors and guests with the two Potter Worlds- the new Diagon Alley in Universal Studios Florida park and the original Hogsmeade in the Islands of Adventure section of the Resort.

The original Wizarding World of Harry Potter is undoubtedly the most successful theme-park-entertainment initiative on part of Universal Orlando Resort. Since inception, it has been the centerpiece attraction and an object of great envy for the other big contenders in the business. Whether it’s the most amazing Hogwarts Castle or the Forbidden Journey Ride, Universal’s Creative team had left no stone unturned in bringing to life the most inspiring adventures of JK Rowlling’s world famous Harry Potter stories. Truly a visit to the Potter Land at the Islands of Adventure Park is a dream come true experience.

Moreover, the creation of such widely fancied attraction has changed the way we will perceive Universal Studios forever. In fact the Potter World proves to be a game changer for the Resort. The sudden increase in visits, including the overwhelming response from fans and visitors, and the high returns on investments of such repute had set a new bench-mark in the theme park industry today. The level of competition is being raised so high that even bigger challengers in the business like the Disney World is being forced to re-think. And while the competitors are trying their best to score an edge over the other, Universal is prudent enough to lead the way with the new Harry Potter Expansions.

Blue Man Tickets Orlando

Entertainment Like Never Before

Enhanced Show Features New Stage, New Technology, New Music and
New Experiences

ORLANDO, Fla. (Feb. 16, 2012) – Universal Orlando’s Blue Man Group show is taking its unique and captivating brand of live entertainment to another level – complete with a new show environment, new music, new technology and new experiences.

Opening to the public on Friday, February 24, the show will take guests on an incredible journey where they’ll join the Blue Men as they discover, engage and explore the world’s obsession with cutting-edge technology.  New sections include Blue Men interacting with “GiPads” (think Gigantic iPads), a funny and perceptive look at contemporary modes of communication; and a pulsating new finale featuring an original Blue Man Group music score that will have guests jumping to their feet.

“The heart of our show is, and always has been, the Blue Man, and his inquisitive, wide-eyed take on the world,” said Chris Wink, who co-founded Blue Man Group with Phil Stanton and Matt Goldman. “Our team of artists at Blue Man Productions has created fun, even astounding new visual aspects of the show, and our music team has given us a great new sound. We are really excited to incorporate these elements into the show at Universal Orlando Resort “

“This show will take one of Universal Orlando’s most popular experiences to a whole new level,” said Alice Norsworthy, Executive Vice President of Marketing and Sales for Universal Orlando Resort.  “It’s the perfect complement to the incredible entertainment we offer at our destination.”

Several of the signature moments that have made Blue Man Group one of today’s best-loved theatrical productions will remain in the show, although in most cases, they have also been updated.  And as always, the production will fuse innovative theatrical spectacle with improvisation and vaudeville-inspired comedy, art, science and irresistible music performed by the Blue Man Group live band.

“Many of our audience’s favorite pieces, including ‘Paint Drumming’ and ‘Gum Balls/Marshmallows’ will continue to be a part of the production – and yes, the first few rows will still need to wear ponchos,” added Phil Stanton, Blue Man Group co-founder. “But we have developed some brand new elements of the show that provide a larger-than-life, rousing, interactive experience that I hope will really speak to all cultures and give some of our most devoted fans a new reason to check us out again.”

Magic Kingdom Fact Sheet

Having Fun at the Magic Kingdom

Having Fun at the Magic Kingdom

Following the success of Disneyland, which opened in 1955, entertainment pioneer Walt Disney (1901-66) set his sights on what he called his company’s “most exciting and challenging assignment” — the creation of a vast vacation paradise known today as Walt Disney World Resort.

Walt’s dream was realized when Magic Kingdom, the first of four theme parks at the sprawling Florida site, opened Oct. 1, 1971. Walt’s older brother and lifelong business partner, Roy O. Disney, inaugurated the park with a heartfelt dedication that remains today on a bronze plaque in Main Street, U.S.A.:

WALT DISNEY WORLD is a tribute to the philosophy and life of Walter Elias Disney

… and to the talents, the dedication, and the loyalty of the entire Disney organization that made Walt Disney’s dream come true. May Walt Disney World bring Joy and Inspiration and New Knowledge to all who come to this happy place … a Magic Kingdom where the young at heart of all ages can laugh and play and learn — together.

The Park

Magic Kingdom sits on 142 acres with the towering Cinderella Castle at its center. Similar to Disneyland in California, the park is divided into seven themed lands — Main Street, U.S.A.; Adventureland; Frontierland; Liberty Square; Fantasyland; Mickey’s Toontown Fair; and Tomorrowland.

Popular attractions include Pirates of the Caribbean, The Haunted Mansion, Space Mountain, Splash Mountain, Stitch’s Great Escape!, Monster’s Inc. Laugh Floor, “Mickey’s PhilharMagic,” Big Thunder Mountain Railroad, it’s a small world, Jungle Cruise, Hall of Presidents, Mad Tea Party, Buzz Lightyear’s Space Ranger Spin, The Many Adventures of Winnie the Pooh, Country Bear Jamboree, Tom Sawyer Island, Peter Pan’s Flight and Dumbo the Flying Elephant.

Cinderella Castle, the park’s icon, stands 189 feet tall and includes 18 towers. Inside its main hall, five glittering mosaics created under the direction of Dorothea Redmond and Hanns-Joachim Scharff tell the story of Cinderella in 500 brilliant hues of glass.


In addition to dozens of Disney characters found at locations throughout the park, Magic Kingdom presents a rich variety of entertainment each day, from colorful parades to visiting marching bands. Major productions include:

“Dream Along with Mickey” — Mickey Mouse and friends show Donald Duck that dreams really do come true in this musical stage show.

“Celebrate a Dream Come True” — Mickey Mouse leads a daily parade celebrating the history of Disney animation.

“SpectroMagic” — Presented on select nights, this energetic parade of Disney characters features floats dotted with millions of twinkling lights.

“Wishes” — Jiminy Cricket narrates the biggest, boldest fireworks show ever presented at Magic Kingdom, a heart-tugging “story in the sky” about making a wish come true, presented most nights.

Food and Beverage

Popcorn to prime rib is available in a variety of unique settings that include everything from elegant table-service restaurants to outdoor refreshment carts. Major eateries include:

  • Tony’s Town Square (Main Street, U.S.A.) — salads, pastas, Italian entrees
  • Pecos Bill Tall Tale Inn and Cafe (Frontierland) — burgers, hot dogs, sandwiches, salads
  • Columbia Harbour House (Liberty Square) — clam chowder, fish, chicken, sandwiches
  • Pinocchio Village Haus (Fantasyland) — pizza, Italian sandwiches, salads, soups
