How To Buy Costco Universal Studios Tickets

Costco is one of our favorite stores to shop at! You can get almost everything you need in one trip and it will last you a long time! Of course most people shop at Costco for food, clothes and electronics. But did you know they sell tickets to theme parks including Costco Universal Studios tickets?! They do and they can be a great deal! We’ve written a whole page about these tickets and how to get them. We also offer alternative options incase you don’t have time to visit a store or wait for shipping. If you’re doing a combo trip to Universal and Disneyland or Walt Disney World you can purchase discounted tickets as well.

Purchasing Tickets from Costco Stores

If you’ve been to Costco before then you’ll be somewhat familiar with their layout. Only problem is that every store is different! Basically what you want to do is find your stores gift card section. Almost every store we’ve visited in the USA has put gift cards and theme park tickets together in the same section so you should be pretty safe requesting this.

Once you find it just walk around the stand or section until you find the Universal Studios section. Depending on where you live in the United States you may be offered Costco Universal Studios tickets for Hollywood or Orlando. You can read all about the differences in the internets #1 Universal Studios guide.

You’ll notice that the stand doesn’t actually carry the tickets on the stand but only a cardboard piece that needs to be taken to a register for redemption and pick up of your actual tickets. After paying a guest services member will go grab your tickets and bring them out to you.
