Publix Universal Tickets Policy: Where to Buy, Passes Sold, etc

Short Answer: You can buy Universal Orlando tickets from most Publix grocery stores in Florida. Publix stores in other states don’t typically stock Universal tickets. Depending on the store and inventory, several ticket options may be available, including day passes and season passes. Universal Orlando ticket prices online and at the gate vary by day; Publix offers more stable pricing — though blackout dates may be a factor.

Publix Universal Tickets Policy Explained

Most Publix grocery stores in Florida sell Universal Orlando tickets. While Publix’s corporate customer service department was not able to tell us whether or not the grocery store chain sells Universal tickets, we reached out to Publix stores in Fort Lauderdale, Naples, and Orlando and found that all of the stores we contacted in Florida sell Universal Orlando passes.

We also called multiple stores in Alabama and Georgia to find out if Publix locations in other states sell Universal tickets. Only one location in Spanish Fort, Ala., told us that it stocks a limited number of Universal Orlando passes — and that they sell out quickly.

Publix sells day passes and season passes to Universal Orlando. Available ticket options vary by location and can be found at either the gift card kiosk or in the checkout lane. (Tip: Universal Orlando passes look like standard gift cards.) Keep in mind, you may need to show a state ID to purchase tickets meant for Florida residents only.
