Received my newsletter from Underground Tourist and it mentioned there are STRONG rumors that Disney will be raising ticket prices this weekend. Just passing this along for those that might have been contemplating a purchase, it might be wise to go ahead and pull the trigger.

More great news about our "shrinking" vacation dollar.

Didn't they just raise the prices about 6 months ago?

I have heard this mentioned on several sites and they usually are dead on. We just got back on Sunday and purchased 6 days, nonexpiring. We only used 3. Had no idea they would raise the price so soon!

No. It was the same time last year.

buy Disney tickets where? And best combinations or recommendations? And does Universal also follows Disney's price increases in the past?

I don't know about Universal. II sells them on their site as does Undercovertourist, Mapleleaftickets and Orlandofuntickets. The prices don't really vary much from seller to seller. The base ticket will expire 14 days from first use so the clock won't start ticking until you use it the first time. Really explore your options. We were only going to spend 3 days in the park and base tickets would have cost us $218 per person. We got 6 day non-expiring for $288 - 3 more days for $70. The longer you stay, the cheaper the per day cost. You can upgrade the tickets at Guest Services should you decide to add days, add non-expiring or water park and more. Most of these sites have tutorials on the ticket types.

One more great tip would be that you can add water park and more to any ticket and you get an equal number of water park visits. So, we would get 6 for our ticket that would never expire. To add this is something like $53 per ticket. Just one admission is $40 so if you go twice you are ahead of the game and if you add non-expiring, well, they are good forever. That would be 12 days of Disney fun in my example.

I did exactly that today. I had studied the price struture of the cost per day for the various ticket options and selected the six day, park hopper, no expiration, water parks & more. I bought the tickets online today from MapleLeaf tickets since we are going mid-November this year. We plan to use three days and save the other three days for future trips, plus we will have six passes to DisneyQuest or the water parks thanks to the waterparks & more option. We will milk a LOT of mileage out of these tickets.

Many times when we go to Orlando, we only do one or two parks during our stay, so we'll probably get another three or four trip's worth out of the extra days on the tickets. We get an additional Disney "fix" by spending an evening at Downtown Disney shopping and having dinner, and we often "resort hop" and walk around the grounds at Wilderness Lodge, the Poly, Animal Kingdom etc. We hit their gift shops and have a meal at the resort. The rest of the time we hang out at our resort, maybe do day at Sea World or Universal, browse the tacky gift shops on International Drive or 192, go to a dinner show, a local flea market, stroll through the quaint town of Celebration, and things like that. There is soooo much to do in Orlando.

You are on my brainwave!! We walked around SSR and toured the AKV rooms there and they had a Grand Villa open to members from 5-7 on the night we were wandering. We also went over to Ft. Wilderness and wandered there too.

I usually do best at my local AAA office, especially for Fla resident tickets. Which ticket depends on what you want to do, but I would not get the park-hopper if you spend the whole day in one place, or the tickets that include water parks if you don't go to them. And yes, Universal will go up sooner or later, too.

Wait a sec. I have 6 people going to MK Sunday, 8 to DS on Tuesday, and 8 to the water park on Thursday.

Should I buy 14 separate tickets or should I buy 14 and get a discount? Can I buy them all at once and use them for different people? We leave Saturday? Should I use an online ticket office and go to "will call?" Or can I buy them at the gate and get a bunch?

THANKS

Ellen,
buying from Disney requires you to get each ticket per person, so getting a multi-day ticket can only be used by one person.

I don't know if there is a way to get lots of single day tickets from an independent outlet, but if there is, you should do it.

Yeah - thought that was too good to be true. I hope the prices don't go up - but if they do, oh well. I don't want to buy them before we leave by now - and worry about will call lines. I assume we can just buy them at the hotel... HGVC?

there is no benefit to 2 days vs. 2 single days

2 days is just about the cost of 2 single days and you are better just buying a single day WP ticket. However, if any in your group wants to go to WP 2 days, or DQ another day, then you are better paying the $50 (vs. $42 or so) and adding it to your single day ticket--as of now, even with a single day ticket, the WP&M feature includest gives you 2 visits--so the 2nd visit is just $8 or so. [But make sure of this--they could be changing the structure this weekend]. You can decide when you get to the WP--just take your single day ticket (used or unused--doesn't matter) and upgrade to included WP. have a fun trip! Elaine

I got many 1 day tickets if you are interested (non park hopper).

I also got many multi day tickets that was bought before finger scanning.
(I might not sell these since I use it when my relatives come visit. 4 different people used it already and it works great.)

I always buy 7 or 10 day tickets since I love Disney and go there almost every year. Also non expiration and options, I always get. I think I have been studying Disney tickets for 8 years and maybe I should start a new business. NOT.

Question for DVC tours. Do you get anything by doing DVC tours? Like Disney tickets?
