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
#AmexUCT 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.
