Today’s Daily Getaway promotion is offering discounted tickets to three different attractions — SeaWorld, Busch Gardens, and Discovery Cove. This is a good deal for some of the packages, but not all.
The three different packages include:
1-Day Admission to Sea World or Busch Gardens
With this package, you can purchase a single-day admission ticket to 5 different theme parks for $55. Valid for: SeaWorld Orlando, SeaWorld San Diego, SeaWorld San Antonio, Busch Gardens Tampa or Busch Gardens Williamsburg.
If you are comparing prices, you’ll see that a one-day ticket to SeaWorld San Antonio only costs $59.99. Although it is a few bucks more expensive purchasing directly, I’d prefer to go this route then buy into the Daily Getaway ticket where you are locked into an expiration date. (The Daily Getaway ticket expires May 31, 2020).
On the flip side, Busch Gardens Tampa costs $84.99 when purchasing direct. This puts the Daily Getaway package at a must better price. However, if you are looking for a two day ticket, you’ll get the best deal by booking through Busch Gardens directly. That actually holds true of all 5 of the theme parks.
Florida 2-Park Theme Park Ticket
This package will give you two days at any of the following parks: SeaWorld® Orlando, Aquatica® Orlando, Busch Gardens® Tampa Bay or Adventure Island® Tampa Bay. The second visit must be redeemed within 14 days of your first visit and must be used by the same person.
This package is $75 with Daily Getaways, although costs $104.99 if purchase directly. This clearly puts the Daily Getaway package at a much better cost, but keep in mind the tickets expire May 30, 2020. Now, if you want to go to all three parks, buy the three-day park direct direct with the theme park is the best deal.
Discovery Cove Swim Package
This is by far the best deal of the three. You’ll receive 1-day admission to Discovery Cove for $195. This includes a reserved 30-minute dolphin interaction, Freshly prepared breakfast and lunch, Unlimited snacks and drinks, Swim gear and snorkel provided, Towels, sunscreen, and complimentary lockers, Shower amenities, Free parking at Discovery Cove. You’ll also receive a 14-day ticket to SeaWorld® and Aquatica® Orlando.
This ticket starts at $220 when purchasing direct through Discovery Cove, but can cost as much as $400 depending on the day. More popular and peak dates cost more, but with the Daily Getaway package you are paying a fixed rate regardless of the day. This is giving you a 17% discount at a minimum.
Just keep in mind that you must be at least 6-years old to participate.
Definitely compare prices to see if purchasing through the Daily Getaways is in fact the best deal you can find. Aside from purchasing directly through the theme park, you can many times find discounted tickets through other third-party websites as well. Just remember, the packages above to expire, so make sure you 100% are going to these parks.
This deal will go on sale at 1pm EST TODAY Friday May 10. I do not believe this offer will go that fast, but just to be sure I suggest getting to your computer a few minutes before the sale starts.
