I’m going to let you in on a little secret on how to save money on Disney World tickets! Are you ready?
I’ve been vacationing in Disney World since I was little. I was six months old 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 at the time. See, back then 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 discount for our upcoming trip. The two typical discounts you’ll find are military and Florida resident. No one in my family is in the military, and I’m also not a Florida resident (proud New Yorker right here).
However, you can still managed to snag some discounted tickets, and here’s how.
The website is called Undercover Tourist.
If we purchased a 5-day Magic Your Way base ticket for two adults directly from Disney World, it costs $615.58. Through Undercover Tourist it’s $583.90.
Not a huge savings, but a savings nonetheless. A $31.68 savings to be exact, and in Disney World 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 your tickets to arrive.
Update: For an even better deal, you can also get discounted Disney World tickets by booking the labor day special from a travel agency. See this post for details!
