How to Visit Theme Parks on a Budget
Everyone dreams of planning the perfect family vacation and with summer creeping around the corner, it’s time to start making some plans! It may be challenging to choose a destination with different personalities and interests in the family, which is exactly why theme parks are often at the top of every families vacation wish list.
These destinations are one of the few places where there is something for everyone. If you have a thrill-seeking child who loves a good adrenaline rush, be sure to hit all 19 roller coasters at Six Flags Magic Mountain! If you love the theater, grab a front-row seat at Storytelling at Royal Theatre or catch The Dapper Dans on Main Street U.S.A., both offered year-round at Disneyland®. And who doesn’t love classic theme park treats?
Theme parks are fun for all ages, thrilling, and a great way to create memories you’ll cherish for years to come. Unfortunately, these unforgettable family vacations are often expensive. Tickets alone can put families of four into debt and don’t even think about adding parking fees, hotels and food!
Ever wonder How to Visit Theme Parks on a Budget? Imagine there was not one, not two, but three different ways to make your next theme park vacation more affordable. Each money saving tip starts before you even leave the comfort of your own home.
Where to Find Deals
Picture this: your family runs up to the main entrance gate, smiles painted across their faces, only to find out your tickets are invalid. Yes, this can actually happen. Be wary of where you purchase your tickets from, some deals actually are too good to be true. Avoid the heartbreak, stress and confusion by always buying your tickets from an authorized ticket seller like aRes Travel.
Now don’t worry, you don’t have to drive to your local travel agent, simply turn on your laptop or phone and go online! We live in a modern world where we shop for everything online and there’s a reason for that. As with most purchases, the internet is the best place to find a great deal on your theme park tickets. Plan your next vacation from the comfort of your own home.
Not only will you get a great deal on tickets for the whole family, you’ll also find travel tips, must see attractions and exciting experiences you can add on to your ticket. Did you know you could go zip lining above the giraffe enclosure at the San Diego Safari Park? If not, that’s even more of a reason to check out authorized sellers. They are a great tool to help you plan your entire vacation from start to finish.
How to Get the Best Deal
Scrolling through ticketing websites can become an overwhelming experience very quickly as there is such a wide variety of packages and prices. Save some time and money by purchasing all of your tickets at one time. All you have to do is buy two or more tickets to receive a discounted price! This means every member of your family will be set and ready to go.
Many sellers will also provide valuable information and deals regarding when to visit the park. Maybe certain days of the week allow them to offer you a lower price or certain times of year may be available for less expensive rates. Your family can ride the longest, tallest, and fastest wooden roller coaster on the West Coast at Knott’s Berry Farm on select dates and save almost half the price of admission!
You’ll even find the option to combine multiple parks or several days at one park into your bundle depending on the theme park you are hoping to visit. If you’re visiting Shamu over at SeaWorld San Diego, why not check out the San Diego Zoo as well? You’ll get up close and personal with over 300 species during your next vacation! This ticket option also gives you seven extra days at SeaWorld so you’ll have plenty of time to capture memories and learn all about their incredible marine life.
If you’re heading to the east coast, why not hit all three parks Universal Orlando Resort™ has to offer? Experience the thrills at Universal Islands of a Adventure, find your favorite movie character at Universal Studios and cool off without waiting in line at Volcano Bay. You can find some great discounts to visit each park for a full day, or hop between parks. Sounds like a great opportunity to catch a ride on the Hogwarts™ Express to me!
Bundle it up!
While you are bundling your tickets, why not add your hotel to create the total package? Surprisingly enough, you will receive the biggest discount by purchasing all of your vacation needs at once. Not to mention, the authorized ticket seller will usually have some of the closest and most accessible hotels to your theme park of choice. Wouldn’t it be great if you could even skip out on parking fees and utilize one of the resort shuttles?
Stay at resorts like Four Points by Sheraton in Anaheim and stay right across the street from Disneyland®. Walk 10 minutes to the main gate or hop on ART (Anaheim Resort Transit) for a five minute shuttle ride. You can even watch the nightly fireworks shows from the resort! Think it sounds out of you budget? You can save more than the cost of one single day admission when you bundle this resort into your next Disneyland® vacation.
It really is as easy as it sounds; from one website, you can book your hotel, your theme park tickets, your dining plans, photo packages, exciting experiences and more all while saving money! So, what are you waiting for?
