The Universal Orlando Resort has released their offers for the US Military Community for 2020.
During the 12 years that I’ve been running this site, Universal has always been very slow to make and announce special military offers, always announcing at the last minute or past when the offer started!
They would traditionally announce the new year’s offer well into January (the last two years 2018 & 2019 excluded which happened in Dec).
UPDATE: As of 29 January 2020 Universal has finally announced a 2020 Special Military Ticket Discount.
Universal Orlando 2020 Special Highly Discounted Military Tickets
For more than 10 years Universal Orlando has been offering special highly discounted military tickets in addition to their regular slightly discounted military tickets.
These special tickets are part of special discounts and offered for specific dates for a set number of days and options.
Their regular military tickets offer the full range of lengths and options at a lower discount.
Note: Tickets from the 2019 Special ticket offer remain valid through 31 March 2020, although sales of the 2019 tickets have ended.
Here are the 2020 Universal Orlando Special Military Ticket offer details:
The offer consists of a 5-Day Park-to-park ticket good at either 2 or 3 of Universal Orlando’s parks.
Offer Dates: Tickets are available for use on ANY 5 days between date of purchase and December 31, 2020.
5-Day Park-to-Park Ticket good at 2 parks – Adult & Child
The 2-Park 5-Day Park-to-Park Military Promotional Ticket entitles one (1) guest admission to the following Universal Orlando Resort theme parks each day: Universal Studios Florida and Universal’s Islands of Adventure.
5-Day Park-to-Park Ticket good at all 3 parks- Adult & Child
The 3-Park 5-Day Park-to-Park Military Promotional Ticket entitles one (1) guest admission to the following Universal Orlando Resort theme parks each day: Universal Studios Florida, Universal’s Islands of Adventure, AND Universal’s Volcano Bay Water Theme Park.
- 5 Day 2 Park ticket – $221.00 Adult / $216.00 Child (3-9 yrs.)
- 5 Day 3 Park ticket – $264.00 Adult / $259.00 Child (3-9 yrs.)
These are Universal’s initial prices, local bases may vary slightly.
Universal says these tickets are available now, but in actuallity it could take a few days for things to work out…
These tickets are only available at Base Ticket Offices (Including Shades of Green), not at Universal’s gates!
NOTE: 2020 Ticket rules have not been published yet. These are the 2019 rules. I’d assume 2020 will be the same.
Eligibility: Active or Retired U.S. Military, the National Guard or Reservists and the U.S. Coast Guard who possess a valid military photo ID. Spouses of Eligible Service Members also qualify if they are able to present valid and active U.S. Military ID. Department of Defense employees with valid U.S. Military ID’s also qualify

Note! These are a specially priced offer and are much cheaper per day than the regular Military Universal tickets. Compare prices! These may be cheaper than shorter options.
Shades of Green Regular Universal Military Prices (Base Ticket Offices very similar if not the same)
Those Eligible are:
- Active or Retired US Military -Active Duty, National Guard, Reservists, US Coast Guard

These tickets are priced extremely low, therefore they are a fantastic opportunity for Military personnel to visit both Universal Orlando’s original theme parks (Universal Studios Florida & Universal’s Islands of Adventure) as well as take advantage of experiencing Volcano Bay Water Theme Park!
Guest must present a valid Military ID (or civilian CAC) at time of voucher purchase, when exchanging the voucher at the Universal sales window, and upon each redemption at the turnstiles.
Reader reports indicate that you may also activate tickets in the lobbies of the Universal hotels.
