Sometimes Walt Disney World releases a ticket deal just for Florida Residents, but the savings aren’t typically worth celebrating, nor are the terms and conditions convenient for Guests.

For example, the latest Florida Resident ticket deal offered by Disney consisted of consecutive weekdays, which doesn’t apply to a vast majority of Florida Residents who would need to take that time off!

However, Universal tickets just became way more affordable and convenient to use for Florida Residents: a buy one day, get two free deal.

We’re not playing a trick on y’all! According to Universal Orlando Resort’s official website, Florida Residents are eligible for a “Buy a Day Get Two Days Free” deal when they purchase a 2-Park, 1-Day Park-to-Park ticket.

That means Florida Residents can enjoy three days of Universal for the price of one! Not only that, but the days themselves don’t need to be used consecutively, nor do Guests need to make a Park Reservation before arriving at the theme park.

The best part is that the purchased tickets can be used until September 29, so Guests have the entire summer to visit when it’s most convenient for them (unlike Disney, which seems to thrive on making deals as inconvenient as possible for Florida Residents).
