Geithman Universal Studios Trip

November 2021 | Orlando, FL



Prices quoted include nights at the Loews Portofino Bay Hotel (Bay View 2-Queen Room), Unlimited 3-Park Tickets for entire stay, airfare, transfers to and from airport, Universal Express Unlimited ride access. Does not include Dining or Cancellation Coverage. Complimentary daily continental breakfast for two (2) guests at Trattoria del Porto or New Dutch Trading Co. Possibility of a room upgrade based on availability at check in. Complimentary late check out if available (first come-first served).

Leaving on Thursday, November 4, 2021, and returning on Sunday, November 14, 2021.

$5,892.91 (price as of June 15, 2021, price subject to change)

11/4/2021 Flight: Spirit Airlines #529 4:50 PM to 8:22 PM

11/14/21 Flight: Spirit Airlines #1848 4:30 PM to 6:16 PM

Both flights are nonstop – the only ones available through Universal.


Leaving on Thursday, November 11 with a return of November 21 is much higher ($1,500) due to the return time. The flight is what causes the price to rise more so than the hotel. This is because it is the weekend before Thanksgiving.

The best option for November is leaving on the 4th.

The flight costs are over $2,000. We may want to check flights on our own before purchasing with Universal. There are very few non-stop flights.
