Discounted Disney World Tickets Available

Today a nice Mommy Points reader tweeted me a link that discounted Disney World tickets were available via the Orlando local Travelzoo site (thanks @TravelClt!).  Every now and then I come across absolute gems on Travelzoo, so that is a site that I think is worth a look when you have plans to visit a specific city.  For example, last fall we got big discounts on fantastic massages at the Park Hyatt Beaver Creek by buying via Travelzoo.

Discounts on a massage are one thing, but getting discounted Disney World tickets is another all together.  The discount tickets available are for five 20140506-223433.jpgor seven day Magic Your Way Tickets with the Park Hopper Option.  That means you can go to more than one park in a day, as many times as you wish, for 5 or 7 days.  You do not have to use the days consecutively, but you do have to use them within 14 days of the first use.  If you haven’t been to Disney with kids, let me warn you that if you have young kids the Park Hopper option is likely a waste as you will probably be too tired to visit more than one park per day.  Even with older kids, it doesn’t always make sense to hop parks every day.

Travelzoo is charging a total of $362 for the adult five day tickets (kid’s tickets available, too).  Directly from Disney that same ticket would cost $387, so the savings via Travelzoo isn’t huge, but when buying multiple tickets it adds up to at least be enough for a couple meals on your trip.

However, this is not actually the cheapest route to official Disney tickets online.  The Travelzoo deal is still a few dollars pricier than my go-to site for discounted Disney World tickets, Undercover Tourist.  The same ticket via Undercover Tourist (with the MouseSavers discount link) is currently $358.  Without the MouseSavers link the tickets would be slightly higher at $366 each.

To get the MouseSaver’s discount link all you have to do is subscribe to their once monthly newsletter that goes out on the 15th of each month.  That newsletter will have a link in it to save money on Disney World tickets, among other things.

If you have a Disney trip planned for this year, you may want to really start looking at tickets now as February is when they increased ticket prices last year, so it is entirely possible that Disney tickets will get more expensive soon.  While we are at it, here are lots of other posts I have written on Disney to help you save money and have a successful trip.

How do you go about getting discounted Disney World tickets for your family?

Comments

  1. I bought straight from Disney using Disney gift cards I purchased from Sam’s Club at a discount, with Wal-Mart gift cards I bought at a discount on raise.com. Almost 10% off using this method. A lot of people are expecting prices to go up soon as it’s been about a year since a price increase so I wouldn’t wait too long if you’re planning a trip this year and can afford to buy ahead of time.

  2. I have bunch of disney gift cards. We 4 adults made reservations to leave in May this year. I didn’t buy disney tickets yet. If I buy directly from disney using the gift cards, how long are they valid?

  3. Also, is there an online portal for WDW tickets and Undercover tourist tickets? Last year, there was ebates offer on Orbitz but I haven’t seen anyone reporting success with that method.

  4. Sam – I believe that disney world tickets are valid 14 days from first date of use if you buy them from disney the same as from undercover tourist. If you buy the no expiration variety then they are valid forever until you use them. The information should be on disney’s website. I am not aware of any portals for undercover tourist.

    • Hello Dan – I am actually looking for any portal sites that take Disney GCs as payment. Are there any? I assume that the third party sites (like orbitz, undercover etc.) do not accept Disney GCs, correct?

  5. I buy Disney gift cards at Target, stacking my RedCard 5% savings with the 5% coupons I get thru their prescription program. Using this method the same ticket would be $349.26 directly from Disney.

    • While you can still get the 5% Red Card savings on the Disney giftcards (they are classified as “entertainment” cards), you are no longer able to stack the pharmacy rewards for the additional discount. I think they stopped allowing it last April or so. I know I bought a few giftcards with both discounts in March of last year and it was shortly afterwards that they stopped it.

  6. Just returned from Disney. I bought our tickets at a 5% discount using Disney gift cards purchased with the Target Prepaid Red Card that I funded with a credit card.

  7. I am going to get them through my work’s Union discount portal. Currently it is a 5 day hopper for the price of a 3 day but I’m not so sure I need a hopper with 4 year old daughter.

  8. Looks like my work’s portal is not offering the discount anymore so Undercover Tourist it is! So funny, we are planning our Disney World trip same as you. I think last year we did Kauai around the same time!! Look forward to more helpful posts as we both navigate the Dworld experience together.

  9. I am comparing the undercover tourist and the Travelzoo prices, and it definitely appears to be cheaper on Undercover Tourist for the 5-day tickets, but it looks to me like the 7-day tickets are cheaper on Travelzoo. Am I calculating wrong?
