The Official Ticket Center 5-30-2012 ~ Every year here in Central Florida, the theme park giants get ready for their busiest season by increasing their gate rates. Even when the parks are called out for reporting record earnings, they still see fit to go ahead with the increase. As most Europeans stay home as most have been her many times, the parks are seeing increased travel from our neighbors from the south Americas. As economies rise and fall around the world, it is certain that here in the good o’le US of A, we are not being looked out for with our deteriorating economy and gas prices. It is officially over $100 for 1 person to go to either Walt Disney World, Universal Studios Orlando or SeaWorld Orlando and add in the parking charge, you will have the $100 hurdle jumped. I sometimes wonder when enough will be enough. Maybe when know one comes anymore, they will come up with some major new money saving project, but that is not the case for anytime to come. Remember that Universal Orlando just dropped how many millions of dollars on their latest creation, The Wizarding World of Harry Potter and with their record breaking attendance, it is not likely anytime soon that they will be going down on anything of theirs. With gas at over $3.30 a gallon and the average American family struggling to make ends meat, it is no surprise that the “Stay-cation” has replaced the traditional summer vacation. As a gesture of saving our domestic travelers a little more money, we have created our newest line of Orlando Ticket Packages. With these ticket packages, a family can see all of our world famous theme parks while at the same time saving a considerable amount of money. As for buying the individual Orlando theme park tickets, those are probably the worst way at tackling the parks. Doing this will cost you almost the full gate price, minus a few bucks and the wait in line at the parks. At the end of the day it all boils down to; is it worth going into debt for the next 10 years to come to Florida anymore and is a stay-cation the best during uncertain times.
