Is There a Fee to Change the Date on a Universal Ticket?

While there isn’t a fee to change a date on Universal Studios tickets bought through Universal, there may be a change in ticket cost for the new date.

Universal is now offering date-based pricing, which means that some days will cost more than other days.

For instance, if you bought a single-day ticket for $109 for Universal Studios to visit in February, but want to change to a day over Christmas that is much more expensive, you will need to pay the difference in the ticket fees for the higher-priced date.

However, if you change the date to a day that is the same ticket price or lower, you will not need to pay any extra costs.
