Just in time for the holidays Universal Studios has announced a BOGO ticket deal for Florida residents.

We all have those hard to buy for people on our Christmas shopping list, but one thing I think everyone would love are Universal tickets! Now through January 26th, Florida residents who buy a 2-park one-day park-to-park ticket online will get a second day free! This deal is online only, so keep that in mind, but it will save you $179 so it’s totally worth it.

You can use the ticket on non-consecutive days through January. There are some blackout dates November 21-26 and December 22-January 2.

If you purchase the Universal Studios BOGO deal, you will need to prove that you’re a Florida resident when you purchase your tickets, when you pick them up and again when you redeem them. To buy your tickets now, click here

Something else to look forward to at Universal are holiday festivities. Starting this Saturday, November 12th, guests will get to experience the return of Grinchmas and The Magic of Christmas at Hogwarts Castle. Also returning this year, Universal’s Holiday Parade, the Holiday Tour and the Grinch Character Breakfast.
