Thanks for replys
Your thinking is correct debs!
Just remember if youve paid a deposit then the balance due date will be earlier, as they will base that on the date that you have given them.

Just to confirm what 99plums said, the ticket is activated on the first day of use, plus it will expire 14 days from, and including, the activation day.

Hi all, can anyone tell me how much these tickets were a few months ago, I seem to have a figure of around 250 each - am I going mad? Trying to convince DH that now is the time to buy 😊

If you look on the attractionticketsdirect.co.uk site they're still showing at 249, though cheaper on other sites. Link below.

attraction-tickets-direc...xplorer-ticket

If you decide to buy now the cheapest at the moment is themeparkticketsdirect.com, 221 adult, 213 child, if you use the code BF7 at the checkout. Link below.

themeparkticketsdirect.c...plorer-Tickets

Personally I would buy now, but the choice is yours.

Just throwing my cents worth in -
I'm looking at Universal tickets and although there are a couple of drawbacks I just can't see past doing a 4-day Universal base ticket with Undercover tourist. Cost is approx. 171.
3 downsides -
1. You can only go 4 times instead of unlimited (surely 4 days is enough?)
2. You can't park hop on this ticket (hopper ticket is 210). This is a bit of a drawback.
3. You have to use it within 7 days so can't use it over 14 days.

That said - between 2 tickets it'll save 100. I think that's worth the drawbacks, others may disagree?

That sounds like a good idea, we will only be visiting universal two/three times so the base ticket would work for us & save us over 300 - money towards the Disney passes!
Am I right in thinking we wouldn't be able to go on the Hogwarts Express as we can't park hop? The train didn't do this when we was last there.

we are doing the 4 day base this year - Yes you can't do Hogwarts express but having done it before it's a 5 minute ride we can live without to save us about 350

Yes you're right, you wouldn't be able to ride the Hogwarts Express, but on the plus side you save quite a bit of money.

Money saving is a good thing! This deal just came at the wrong time! DH says we will have to take our chances in January and hope there's another deal on 😔
