Universal Orlando Resort Partners With Veterans Advantage to Launch Exclusive Military Benefits

ORLANDO, Fla. (December 8, 2015) – Universal Orlando Resort and Veterans Advantage have collaborated to create two new benefit packages that give military veterans, active duty, National Guard and reservists, retired military and their immediate families the opportunity to save on vacation packages to Universal Orlando Resort.

Veterans Advantage members now receive up to 10 percent off the following packages:

  • The 2-Park Getaway Vacation Package, which includes a three-night hotel stay and a two-day Park-to-Park ticket
  • The Wizarding World of Harry Potter Exclusive Vacation Package, which includes a four-night hotel stay, three-day Park-to-Park ticket and breakfast at the Leaky Cauldron and more

Veterans Advantage members can customize their vacation package to their choosing and enjoy special benefits. Both packages include early park admission to The Wizarding World of Harry Potter, access to select live entertainment venues at Universal CityWalk and more.

Additionally, qualified Veterans Advantage members and active duty or retired military have access to an Exclusive Military Vacation package to Universal Orlando Resort. This package includes three-night hotel accommodations plus a one-day park-to-park ticket with two days free.

“We honor veterans and their service and we are excited to offer them a special opportunity to enjoy Universal Orlando Resort with their families,” said Bill Davis, president of Universal Orlando Resort and a Vietnam War veteran.  “We want to help them make memories that will last forever.”

Veterans Advantage currently partners with a robust lineup of leading travel providers, which include United Airlines, JetBlue, Amtrak, Greyhound, Avis and Budget, and AIG Travel Guard, offering special savings and exclusive benefits for Veterans Advantage members.

“We are excited to launch this exclusive travel benefit with this world-class vacation destination and premier theme park provider,” said H. Scott Higgins, CEO of Veterans Advantage and a Vietnam War veteran. “With more than 15 years of experience serving the needs of Veterans Advantage travelers, we know this will create a lot of excitement in our community,” Higgins added.
