Universal Meal Deal
The Universal Orlando Resort offers visitors a very economical dining option called the Universal Meal Deal. You can purchase a wrist band at any point throughout the day at the participating restaurants as well as dining reservation booths and certain merchandise stores throughout the parks. If you have a large appetite (as does my teenage son who we always purchase this for! ), this is an excellent deal as it offers unlimited meals for the whole day up until 30 minutes prior to park closing.
The cost is $19. 99 plus tax for adults and $9. 99 plus tax for children (ages 9 and under) for a single park or you can also purchase a two park meal deal which includes both Universal Studios and Islands of Adventure for $23. 99 plus tax for adults and $11. 99 plus tax for children. Beverages are not included, however, you can purchase a Meal Deal Souvenir Cup for $8. 99 plus tax which is good for unlimited fountain drink refills on the day of purchase.
The way it works is that there are 3 participating restaurants in each of the parks. At Universal Studios, the participating locations are Louie’s Italian Restaurant, Mel’s Drive-In, and the International Food & Film Festival Food Court. At Islands of Adventure, the participating locations are Circus McGurkus Café Stoo-pendous, Comic Strip Café and Burger Digs. Most of these locations serve the usual selection of burgers, pizza, and chicken. You go through the line and select one entrée and one dessert and show your wrist band at check-out. You are limited to only the one entrée and dessert per trip through the line. Children must choose from the exclusive meal deal children’s menu only.
My daughters and I won’t consume enough food to make this worth our while, however, for my 15 year old son and for my husband, we found this to be a very excellent value. The downside is that you can only get one entrée per trip through the line, but being that my son inhales his food in about one third of the time as the rest of us, he had plenty of time to go through the line at least one or two more times while we finished eating. And since he’s usually hungry again within the hour, it was quite nice for him (and really nice for my pocket book) to be able to just stop and grab another meal along the way. Remember that sharing of meals is not permitted.
