How To Save Money On Disney World Tickets
I’ve been vacationing in Disney World since I was little. I was six months old for my first visit, and have been going back religiously ever since. A running “joke” my parents have is how expensive they thought Disney tickets were back in the day. Now though, they’re kicking themselves for not purchasing more tickets back then. See, a long time ago, even your standard ticket had no expiration date. Talk about hindsight being 20/20! Nowadays, the price of a park ticket continues to sky-rocket. As of today, one day at the Magic Kingdom costs $95 per person.
I’ve been searching high and low for any sort of park ticket discount for our trip next month. The two typical discounts you find are military and Florida resident discounts. Well, no one in my family is in the military, and I’m also not a Florida resident (proud New Yorker right here!), so there go both of those options.
However, I still managed to snag myself some discounted tickets, and here’s how you can too.
If you don’t know about the site Undercover Tourist, you’ve been missing out. They offer Disney World park tickets (and other Orlando-area tickets) for a discounted rate. Let me show you!
If we purchased a 5-day Magic Your Way base ticket directly from Disney World, it would cost us $615.58 for two adults. Through Undercover Tourist, we paid $583.90.
So no, not a huge savings, but a savings nonetheless. A $31.68 savings to be exact, and in Disney that could either buy lunch at a quick service restaurant, or a plethora of Mickey pops.
But buyer beware, you have to purchase your tickets FAR in advance! Undercover Tourist offers free shipping, however, they estimate 15 business days (M-F, non-holiday) for tickets to arrive, which is a little insane to me, but whatever, it’s free shipping.
Unfortunately for us, because of the upcoming holiday, we missed out on the free shipping, as 15 business days puts us past our Disney World arrival date. It wasn’t THAT big of a deal, as we just had to add $6 (about 2 mickey pops) to our order for quicker shipping. Nevertheless, this site is totally worth checking out before buying your Disney World park tickets!
