Universal Orlando extends limited $45 per day tickets for Florida residents

Florida residents looking to finally ride that new Harry Potter roller coaster now have a few more chances save a little cash.

From now through September 30, Universal Orlando is extending their BOGO deal for Florida residents, which offers two free days at either Islands of Adventure or Universal Studios, with the purchase of a two-day ticket starting at $179.99 per adult, plus tax.

According to Universal, Florida residents must provide valid proof of residency, and use the promo code “COKE.”

The tickets, which come out to roughly $45 per day, are good any four days through December 20, 2019 with no blackout dates. Guests can also upgrade their tickets to include Volcano Bay for an additional $25.

Universal first introduced this year's Florida resident BOGO deal last May, but the new extended purchase dates now conveniently overlap with the opening of Disney World’s new Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge on August 29. 

On June 13, Universal’s Islands of Adventure debuted their latest attraction, Hagrid’s Magical Creatures Motorbike Adventure. Guests on opening day reportedly waited up to ten hours to ride the new coaster.

Hopefully lines have since died down.
