To be honest I am not sure about this. It is possible that they could be emailed to you as it says the following on the Visit Orlando site.

Print at home - You will receive an email with your tickets within 24 hours.

Whether this just applies to the US, or to other countries as well, I am not sure.

Not necessarily.

As I said in my other post, if you only want a Universal 2 Day Park to Park ticket without having a 3rd day free, then the best option, apart from Visit Orlando, is orlandoattractions.com, 188.25 adult, 181.50 child.

The same ticket from undercovertourist.com is $263.62 adult, roughly 198.21, $261.62 child, roughly 196.70. This could be dearer still if your bank or credit card company add on a non-sterling transaction fee. As you can see it is quite a bit cheaper from orlandoattractions.com.

Even the Universal 2-Day Park-to-Park Ticket - Plus Extra Day FREE could work out slightly cheaper, or maybe around the same price from orlandoattractions.com, depending on whether your bank or credit card company charge a non-sterling transaction fee.

Pretty sure, on the checkout page, the visit orlando site says non-US customers have to take the email to the visitor centre with a photo id - which is where they will presumably collect the actual tickets

This is true. The FREE day is the clincher with the undercover ticket. If you don't actually need the 3rd day then orlandoattraction price is better.

We finally went with undercover last night as it was a relatively small price to pay for the knowledge that we could decide at the last minute to go to the park fors an extra evening (or whole day)

Hi smudgester,

I just went on the live chat on Visit Orlando and asked if they email the tickets. They said that they can't email the Disney tickets because they're hard tickets, but they can email the Universal tickets so that they can be printed off. They said it takes about 24 hours for these to come through. Their site was a bit confusing to say the least.

That's quite a good deal with undercovertourist. As you say it gives the option of doing a 3rd day if you want to.
