As prices rise on just about everything associated with a vacation—airline tickets, fuel, lodging and more—all of us are looking for ways to save money any way we can. A Go Pass can save you money on your vacation to Miami or Orlando.
What's a Go Pass? It's a multi-attraction pass for free admission into participating attractions. It allows you and your family to create your own itinerary and vacation experience, based on what you like to do. Simply pay one price, and enjoy as many attractions as you would like... for free when presenting your Go Pass.
So, right now you're asking, "What's the catch?" There is no "catch," but some restrictions do apply. Passes are purchased for a particular number of days—one, two, three, five or seven days. The Go Pass is valid for 14 days from first use, but the days do not need to be used consecutively. Purchase a three-, five-, or seven-day pass and receive a bonus—your choice of various attraction or dinner theatre admissions. Go Miami even offers a free day of car rental as a bonus choice. The pass also includes bonus shopping and dining discounts.
In addition, all orders for Go Orlando that include a child's pass will ship with a "Kids Eat Free" option. This offer is only available on shipped Go Orlando orders, and shipping charges do apply. To use the "Kids Eat Free" option, simply visit any of the restaurants listed and present the pass to the waiter when ordering your meal.
Prices start at $65.00 for a single-day Miami Go pass ($52.00 for children, ages 3-12), and $110.00 ($100.00 for children, ages 3-12) for a 2-day Orlando Go pass and graduate in price as you add days. A five-day Miami Go pass is $175.00 for adults ($145.00 for children) and a seven-day Orlando Go pass is $285.00 for adults and $225.00 for children.
The Miami and Orlando Go passes are purchased separately but have crossover attractions available in the other city. In other words, if you buy an Orlando Go pass, you can take a day or two to explore some of Miami's attractions and tours. There is even a one-day, round-trip Miami bus tour that can be taken free with your Orlando Go pass, but there is no round-trip tour available from Miami to Orlando for Miami Go pass-holders.
Printed guidebooks are included with each pass order. The full-color guidebook includes attraction descriptions, hours of operation, directions and more. It is a great resource for creating your own personal vacation experience.
Go Miami is the perfect companion for the first-time Miami visitor. It offers multiple tour choices and more than 30 activities total in Miami, plus additional crossover attractions in Central Florida.
Go Miami also offers exclusive deals and savings including discounts at restaurants and gift shops, as well as some tours, rides, and activities. The pass is also good for some out-of-the-Miami-area activities and adventures. Purchase a three-, five-, or seven-day Go Orlando pass and receive a bonus — your choice of a one-day economy-class Thrifty Car Rental, Mai-Kai Polynesian Dinner Show admission or Key West Day Tour.
If you're going to Orlando and not going to spend the entire time at a particular inclusive resort, then Go Orlando can save you money. It includes admission to over 30 attractions and tours. Purchase the credit-card-size Go Orlando pass to cover just the number of days you'll be in Orlando — one, two, three, five or seven days — and then just add up the savings as you plan your itinerary.
Go Orlando also offers exclusive deals and savings including discounts at restaurants and gift shops, as well as some tours, rides, and activities. The pass is also good for some out-of-the-Orlando-area activities and adventures. Purchase a three-, five-, or seven-day Go Orlando pass and receive a bonus — your choice of dinner theater tickets to Arabian Nights Dinner Theater or Out of Control Magic Comedy Dinner Show, admission to Wet 'n Wild Orlando water park, or Kennedy Space Center (two-day admission). In addition, all orders that include a child's pass will ship with a "Kids Eat Free*" option. Visit any of the restaurants listed and present the Kids Eat Free pass to the waiter when ordering your meal.
While Go passes are a great deal, as with every purchase it pays to read all disclosures carefully. The passes do not include admission to Central Florida's most popular theme parks—Disney World, Universal Orlando, SeaWorld Orlando, or Busch Gardens Tampa Bay.
