Welcome to the Dibb.

You're dates are similar to mine (19th to 2nd) and I've been monitoring prices for tickets and car hire for the last year.
I've booked carhire with Discount Florida car hire- Andy, who has been the cheapest for my dates and comes highly recommended on the Dibb.
Universal 3 park tickets were 219 pounds. Go through the links on the top of the 'Florida planning' 'Tickets' menu, to check prices on each.

Decide if you want to goto Volcano Bay, because if not, you'll only need the Universal 2 park ticket. You'll already have a water park included (Aquatica) with your Seaworld/ Busch ticket.

Do you mean to visit Disneys Hollywood Studios? If so, buy a day ticket in advance from Undercover Tourist. However, it will be absolutely heaving with Toy Story land opening, so personally, for the money, I would leave it for your next trip

Unfortunately your dates have peak prices for Universal hotels. The prices don't start reducing until 29th July.

Have a great trip - and get a countdown on the Dibb, from the list on the right 'forum countdown' !

Have you checked universal hotel prices? I did mine recently, one day was cheaper at one hotel than the others, so I moved my activities around that, only saved 30 on the next cheapest day, but some days where 50-100 more expensive. Also check across the 3 main hotels as they do vary in price.

If you aren't too sure what you want to do on the last Saturday perhaps leave this open? I've always thought it'd be anice to have a free day to decide I really want to go here for our last day.

Another option is perhaps Volcano Bay as it wouldn't really cost you much more if anything to get a 3 park ticket instead of a 2 park ticket to get into, Alternatively Discovery Cove without a dolphin swim as that doesn't cost much more then a Seaworld/Busch Gardens ticket. Just some ideas.

Is there a specific reason you want to do Hollywood studios
Very expensive for a one day ticket and what is a park still with limit d attractions in most people's eyes despite the new toy story land
If you wanted a Disney fix , I would do magic kingdom instead
But definitely look into discovery cove and volcano bay

I'd disagree with that. A 3 park with free parking is around the 100 mark, you can add on at least 45 to include Disc Cove. Trust me, I've been looking all weekend after hearing all the stories of 20 add-ons !

When you say Universal do you also include Island of Adventure? Be a shame not to do that alongside universal studios. 3 visits to universal seems a lot, particularly when you have 9 days.
