Complete Guide to Universal Studios Military Discounts

Universal Studios is a fan-favorite destination for those visiting Orlando.

However, just like any theme park, it comes with a pretty hefty price — especially if you’re visiting for multiple days. The good news is that Universal offers several discounts that can hopefully help alleviate some of those costs. Today, we’re here to break down all of the discounts you can get at Universal if you are currently serving in the Military or are a veteran. Let’s go!

Universal honors America’s service members by providing quite a few discounts. Eligible service members include Active Duty service members (Army, Navy, Air Force, Marines, Coast Guard, National Guard, Reservists) and their spouses, Retired Military service members and spouses, and Department of Defense Civilians. So, if you are eligible, keep on reading! (And thanks for your service!)

First, you are eligible for the 2023 Military Freedom Pass, which is available for use before December 24th, 2023. There are a few blockout dates, though. You can choose between a 2-Park or 3-Park ticket option, and Eligible Service Members can purchase and activate up to six of these promotional passes. To activate your ticket, just present your valid U.S. military photo ID at any Universal theme park front gate window. These start at $199.

Hotel Discounts

Not only can you get a pretty nice ticket discount, but you’ll be eligible for hotel discounts as well. You’ll get 40% off stays at Universal’s Cabana Bay Beach Resort and Universal’s Aventura Hotel, as well as up to 35% off other Universal hotel stays.

  1. We are heading to Universal Studios this Thanksgiving and utilizing the Harry Potter Wizarding World Military Package. So far so good, the only drawback is we have to pay taxes on the military tickets. If we bought them at ITT on base we wouldn’t have had to pay it. I’ve reasoned that having the Express Lane for all of us (2 adults, 3 children) while staying at the Hard Rock Hotel is worth it. I’m extremely curious to see the “wizarding box” they send us with tags, etc… and how smoothly check-in will be. We have stayed at Hard Rock in the past and loved it (so convenient to the parks) but not on a military package.
