Here is an explanation of how each type of pass functions.

Build Your Own Pass

Although you can’t save a lot of money with this option, it includes far more attractions than any other pass. In total, this pass will allow you to save 20% off 2 or more tickets.

 

Build Your Own Tourist Pass

 

This pass is also an excellent option if you want more control over which attractions you’re paying for, as it allows you to choose only the activities you want to enjoy.

Each ticket must be purchased ahead of time, so you won’t be able to choose your activities as you go.

This pass is valid for a total of 30 days, giving you plenty of time to explore Orlando.

Choose Your Attractions

Rather than paying a set price per day, this pass gives you one flat price for a set number of attractions.

What this means is that you can purchase 2, 3, 4 or 5 different tickets and save money on all of them.

 

Pick Your Attractions Pass 

Typically speaking, the more you purchase, the more you save. The choose your attractions pass allows you to pick your activities at your own leisure.

You’ll have a total of 30 days to use the pass.

All-Inclusive Passes

This option will allow you to access dozens of popular attractions for one flat price.

 

All-Inclusive City Pass

 

You’ll have the choice of buying the pass for a total of 2, 3, or 5 non-consecutive calendar days.

You will be given a total of two weeks to use the pass once it is activated.

In addition to this, you’ll also be able to choose activities at your own leisure without the need to purchase tickets ahead of time.

Bus Tour Combo

If you’re looking for an alternative to these tourist passes, it’s worth noting that some bus tour companies provide combination tickets which include additional activities and attractions.

These combo packages usually don’t include as many bells and whistles, but they can save you a lot of money.

This means that after you activate the pass on your first day, you can wait until later in the week to use the second day and beyond.

Additionally, this pass also allows you to pick and choose activities as you go.

Orlando CityPASS

If you’re trying to save money on the most popular attractions in the Orlando area, this tourist pass might be your best bet.

Although it doesn’t provide the best deals you’ll ever see, you can get a decent discount with this service.

The main reason to consider getting an Orlando CityPASS is simply the fact that it’s the only way to save any amount on tickets to the following amusement parks:

  • Walt Disney World
  • Universal Orlando
  • SeaWorld Orlando

In addition to these sites, the pass also offers discounts on admission to LEGOLAND, but you can get a much better deal on this attraction with other services listed in this post.

No matter which amusement parks you choose to visit, you can expect to save around 10% – 15% off general admission prices, which is definitely better than paying full price.

Orlando CityPASS also provides special offers every now and then that allow you to save even more money depending on how you bundle your tickets.

Purchase the Orlando CityPASS or learn more.

BUS TOUR COMBOS

In the following section, we will provide details about combo packages offered by bus tour companies in the Orlando area.

Although these discounts aren’t technically tourist passes, they are a great way to save money on some attractions and activities.

 

 


City Sightseeing

This is one of the most popular bus tour companies in the world, but they’ve only recently set up shop in Orlando. As such, their services are currently a bit limited.

Even so, they still manage to offer a combo package that might interest you. This combo deal includes transportation, admission, and 2 tours at Kennedy Space Center.

  • Kennedy Space Center Admission
  • Round-trip Transportation
  • NASA Bus Tour
  • Atlantis Tour

It’s worth noting that admission to Kennedy Space Center is included with the Go Miami Card, the Explorer Pass and the Build Your Own Orlando Pass.

What you won’t get with those passes is the NASA Bus tour, the Atlantis tour, and round-trip transportation.

If you’re interested in making your visit to this location as easy and enjoyable as possible, this is an excellent opportunity.


I-RIDE Trolley

This company doesn’t offer any combo packages, but they do provide discounts at a variety of locations for their customers.

Guests who use this hop-on-hop-off trolley can save money on the following activities and attractions:

  • Dave & Busters

  • CiCi’s Pizza
  • Del Taco
  • Madame Tussauds
  • I-Drive NASCAR
