Final Day to Save $30 On Disney Tickets Via Amex Offer

While we are still lining up the exact trip details, we are planning to go to Disney World this summer, and I am embarrassingly over-the-moon excited about it. I didn’t even know I wanted to go there so much until I started planning! Anyway, we were able to save on our Disney World tickets by buying through Undercover Tourist using an Amex Offer for a $30 statement credit on $150+ in Undercover Tourist purchases, and I wanted to remind you of that deal since the offer ends today (5/31/17). This is somewhat of a targeted offer, though many of our Amex cards did have the offer available. That said, it is possible you may have needed to already add it to your Amex account since the  hashtag on Twitter seems dead.


While some of the Undercover Tourist ticket prices are even less than directly from Disney, the two-day Magic Your Way tickets we bought are normally slightly more through Undercover Tourist than directly from Disney, however with the $30 statement credit we ended up saving about $25 per ticket since we used a different Amex card with the Undercover Tourist Amex offer loaded to place each of the ticket orders.

I needed the tickets quickly so I could start loading FastPasses to our Disney accounts, so I selected the e-ticket delivery option and the tickets were in my inbox within minutes. Thankfully little ones are free at Disney until they turn three, so that cut down on the costs as well.

Once you have an e-ticket the process is simple to then link the ticket numbers to your Disney account and start selecting your FastPass+ choices within 30 days of travel if you are staying off-site, or within 60 days of travel if you have reservations at a Disney resort.

We are well under 60 days before our trip, but thankfully there were still plenty of FastPass+ choices including Frozen, Mine Train, and even the new Pandora attractions!

Be aware that Disney tickets do now carry expiration dates, so don’t buy unless you have plans to use them by the expiration dates which seem to largely be December 31, 2018 at the moment, but double check the fine print.

    • Rats! It wasn’t on all of my Amex cards, but it was on about 75% of the ones I checked. There was a Twitter hashtag to use to register #AmexUCT, but unless you already did that I think it hit capacity. So sorry!

    • I haven’t run across an Undercover Tourist gift card. If they sell them I presume that would work, but I just haven’t seen that option thus far.

  1. Curious if you’re deciding to go as a family of four? Won’t the littlest one be too small for some of those fast pass rides like Mine Train?

    • I was 100% ready to just take the girls solo, but then Grandma decide to join! But yes, she would have been too small for Mine Train for at least another year or so.

  2. Bummed I can’t take advantage of this. Have the offer one my platinum card. Going to Disney next year but I only need a 1-day ticket and the 1-day tickets seem to expire 12/31/17.

    • Andy, interesting…I see both 12/31/17 and 12/31/18 written on that one. Good catch that it may be different!

      • Hadn’t noticed that it says 12/31/18 at the top. Only saw “Ticket cannot be used for admission after December 31, 2017”. Chatted with a CSR and apparently the mailed tickets (refundable) are valid through 12/31/17 and the e-tickets (non-refundable) are valid through 12/31/18. Bought an e-ticket.

  3. This Amex offer worked on a hotel booked through Undercover Tourist as well. I booked one night at a Disney resort the night before we check into the Dolphin for 6 nights (using spg points).
