Evouchers, Etickets and Hard Tickets… I’m Confused..

Hi Thrill Seekers,

There seems to be a common misconception when it comes to some Orlando Attraction Tickets, the culture of Theme Park tickets has led many to become slightly confused when it comes to what tickets are actually available and what they all mean, today I’ll try and clear this up for you.

Evoucher/Voucher

An Evoucher or Voucher is a redeemable paper confirmation from an attraction ticket provider which allows the customer to collect their tickets from allocated ticket booths or guest services.

Pro’s – If you lose the confirmation before you collect your tickets, you can simply print off another copy.

Negatives – The perceived negative is that you may have to queue to swap your confirmation for the tickets, in most cases the queue’s are small.

E-Tickets

An E-Ticket is a gate ready printable ticket, that allows you to go straight to the turnstile and enter the park. No exchanging is required.

Pro’s – If you lose the ticket you can simply print off another copy. No exchange is required.

Negatives – Customer regularly mistake this ticket type as the Evoucher.

Hard Tickets

Hard tickets are the cardboard tickets you regularly see, you simply go to the turnstiles and enter the park.

Pro’s – Customers feel happier having the hard ticket.

Negatives – If you lose or damage the ticket they cannot be replaced.

Here at www.orlandoattractiontickets.co.uk we are currently offering the Hard Ticket and E-Ticket options. In my personal opinion the E-Ticket is the best solution, unfortunately at present only SeaWorld Parks have the technology to produce these tickets.

If you require further information or would like to share you ticket experiences please do not hesitate to comment below.

regards,

Simon

Universal Orlando Gear Up For New Spider-Man 3D Upgrade

As we reported yesterday Universal Orlando are set to reveal some 2012 announcements at a press conference next week.

Most of the industry believe it will involve more information regarding the upgrade of The Amazing Spider-Man 3D experience at Islands of Adventure and these rumours look to be true going by the pic Universal just posted on their twitter account of a modified Hobgoblin (shown above).

I hope you’ll agree the make over looks really impressive.

Things To Do While Queuing At Orlando Theme Parks

Theme Parks are brilliant but they do have one major let down for me the worst part about Orlando Theme Parks is the queuing, here at orlando attraction tickets we’ve put together our list of top tips for things to do while queuing.

  • Listen to music, if you’ve got your MP3 with you music will help pass the time. Perhaps make yourself a thrill ride play list?
  • Mobile games, although they are a bit of a battery killer something like angry birds can help while away an hour very quickly.
  • Disney’s Hidden Mickey’s, look out for the hidden Mickey’s scattered around the Disney parks and tick them off.
  • People Watch, come on we all do it, you’ve in queue with thousands of people! Try games like, guess the nationality, first person to spot a person over 6’4″ etc
  • Themed Queues, hey! not all the queue’s are boring, The Wizarding World of Harry Potter‘s queue is almost an attraction in itself.
  • Talk to people, Yeah I know… its a bit out there… but you can actually speak to people 🙂 All the people queuing are in the same boat as you, trying sparking up some conversation!?

Can you think of any others?

Have you tried any of the above?

Why Choose E-Tickets?

Orlando Attraction Tickets often uses E-Tickets or E-Vouchers for its Disney Tickets, Universal Tickets and SeaWorld Tickets.

What are E-Tickets?

E-Tickets or electronic tickets are any tickets/vouchers emailed to the customer that contain the relevant information regarding your purchase and which are either park ready, meaning you can scan them straight at the gate or be exchanged for the official theme park tickets at the numerous redemption points within the theme park.

Why E-Tickets and not hard tickets?

Orlando Attraction Tickets have thought long and hard about issuing physical tickets or E-Tickets. We believe that the future of theme park ticketing is electronically, we also believe E-Tickets are more convenient and safer for you.

All E-Tickets are sent via email, we are not reliant upon the royal mail or other courier services which means you do not have to wait at home for tickets to be delivered. We don’t have to add additional cost to cover the delivery of the tickets.

However the major advantage we find is that if you lose or damage your E-Ticket, or worst case scenario forget to take them with you to Orlando you can simply re-print them.

Orlando Attraction Tickets prepays for all of its tickets so as soon as you have the E-Tickets you can be assured of entry in to the parks.
