There doesn't appear to be a time limit in the Gift Package one, but it does with all the others.

True. But it would still save you $46 per person (so $184 for a family of 4). Not quite as good as $110 but still beneficial, like you say.

Also, just to be clear, it does say "up to" $110. The savings may be less than $110.

Probably a stupid question but how does this work?

You buy a voucher for up to $110 but how much does the voucher cost? I think I am being thick and cant work out how it works

we will know the price for sure when the deal goes live.

you buy the voucher (at whatever price) and this voucher is good towards one admission, regardless of the admission price for the day you choose (you will need to book a specific date and use the voucher for full payment of that admission)

so you can save up to $110 on your admission

if you want to take a guess, look at the most expensive admission price, and take $110 off. That should give you a rough estimate of the voucher price.

I would say yes in theory

for instance. We're looking at going on May 5th, where the tickets are $260 for the swim and $180 for the non

The most expensive I could find was $340 for the swim and $200 for the non?

So I'm thinking we'd be able to buy the gift tickets at $110 off the most expensive, $230 for the swim and $90 for the non swim (although that sounds too cheap for the non swim, so I'm guessing not). So we'd save about $30 for the Swim tickets and whatever it is on the non swim

Chris, there are prices listed just for the gift package, I was assuming the discount (up to $110) would be off those prices, do you think not?

By my reckoning, $354 is more expensive than the most expensive day ticket (even in high season). Why would anyone pay more for the voucher ? Or am I missing something and you get additional stuff with the 'gift' version ?

Ive finally got my head around the gift package 🙄🙄.

My question is if we go with an ultimate package can we use SeaWorld, Busch ... before DC as we are planning on doing DC the second week of our holidays ? Or do you need to do DC first and it then activate your tickets for the other parks?

Thanks

IIRC the normal policy with the ultimate package is that you can do any of the parks first but if you don't start at DC then you have to do DC within the 2 weeks. In other words you can go to any of the other parks first but no earlier than 2 weeks before your DC date.

Happy to be corrected if that is wrong
