by Mommy Frog on November 23, 2022 6 Orlando   Video

You frog fans know we've been selling Walt Disney World tickets for over 20 years. As the largest authorized seller, we can also legitimately save you a bundle on those tickets. We offer everyday savings, which are clearly listed on our Disney World ticket page, and they toadally add up! A family of four could save over $200 on four days at Walt Disney World by purchasing tickets through us. That's a whole lot of green, even for us frogs! But there are even more ways to save on Disney World tickets if you follow our trusted tips.

We'll hop into the specifics below, but here is a summary of the best ways to save on Disney World tickets.

  • Purchase your tickets in advance through Undercover Tourist.
  • Bundle your Disney World hotel and tickets and save even more through Undercover Tourist.
  • Look for limited-time and extra-day FREE promos.
  • Stay more days.
  • Stick with one park per day.
  • Pick the cheapest start dates.
  • Consider whether you want to visit the parks on arrival and departure days.
  • Take your kids before they turn 3.
  • Consider special event and after-hours tickets.
  • Take advantage of Florida resident tickets.
  • See if you qualify for extra discounts.
  • Make sure you're including tax.

Before we hop into more ways to save on Disney World tickets, let's talk more generally about visiting the parks right now and why it's important to buy tickets early. We probably don't have to tell you that it's been a little different the past couple of years. You need a Disney Park Pass reservation in order to visit the parks now through Jan. 18, 2024. However, you cannot make your Disney Park Pass reservation without your tickets. For this reason, we highly recommend you purchase your tickets and book your reservation as soon as you know you are visiting. This is especially important if you are visiting during traditionally busier times, such as this spring or summer or over the holidays. We cannot stress this enough. As we frogs like to say around here, "the early frog gets the fly!"

Why Buy Discount Disney World Tickets Through Undercover Tourist

Since 2000, we've created thousands of hoppy customers by providing authentic attraction tickets at discounted prices, as well as insider planning tips and excellent customer service. After the closing of the parks during COVID-19, we went above and beyond working overtime to take care of customers needing refunds during an unprecedented time.

Our discounted rates, free shipping and flexible refund policies (365 days from the date of purchase, to be exact!) have made us the trusted name in attraction tickets. When you purchase Disney World tickets through Undercover Tourist, you have peace of mind, because we offer the same exact tickets as Disney World for less. Whether you choose E-tickets or physical tickets, you can link your tickets in My Disney Experience and book your park reservation right away.

Disney World now requires you to pick a start date for your visit, and dates are priced according to popularity. Rest assured, you have the exact same flexibility when booking through Undercover Tourist. In general, you may modify any Disney World start date through the My Disney Experience app. If there is a price increase to move to a new date, you would just pay the difference.

Unused tickets, even if they are expired tickets, do not lose their value. The cost of these tickets can be applied to new tickets.

Where to Buy the Cheapest Disney World Tickets

It's very important to purchase through an authorized seller like Undercover Tourist. This is important because when you need support, Disney will only work directly with authorized sellers. But there are only a handful of legitimate third-party sellers such as Undercover Tourist. Many third-party sellers, including those found on eBay and Craigslist, are often scams. Selling partially used tickets is illegal. Disney uses fingerprinting to assign tickets, so when a person uses a Disney theme park ticket once, admission is tied to that person. The ticket cannot be transferred to anyone else. If the deal seems too good to be true, it probably is.

Tips to Save on Disney Theme Park Tickets

Purchase your tickets online in advance through Undercover Tourist.

This should go without saying, but buy your tickets online and in advance. If you can, try to avoid buying tickets at the gate, where prices are often the highest (plus it just takes extra time).

Bundle your Disney World hotel and tickets and save even more through Undercover Tourist.

You can often save up to $5 off your Disney World tickets when you purchase at least a three-night stay at select Disney World hotels. Look for the special offer and then add the hotel to your cart to see the full savings.

Look for limited-time and extra-day FREE promos. 

Typically, Undercover Tourist offers limited-time discounts and extra day free promos, so you can stretch out the fun for less cost.

Stay longer.

If you're looking for the biggest per-day savings, look for the seven-, eight-, nine- and 10-day tickets. A 10-Day Disney Theme Park Base Ticket currently runs for $578.62 through Undercover Tourist, which works out to less than $58 a day, versus a 1-Day Disney Theme Park Base Ticket at $107.86.

Stick with one park per day. 

Park Hoppers are a popular option because they allow guests to hop among the parks on any given day. While they offer the most flexibility, they also come with a much bigger price tag. And you can't hop for just a day on a multi-day ticket. You must either hop or not. With so much to do around the resort, it's easier than ever to fill your day without having to hop from park to park.

Check your start date.

Disney requires you to pick a start date for your visit to the theme parks and to make a park reservation. If you're looking for the cheapest Disney tickets, check our calendar to see the rates by date (which you can see on our availability calendar). And keep in mind that start-date prices fluctuate the most on one-day tickets. Fridays, Saturdays, Sundays and holidays often see higher prices. January, February and September historically offer the cheapest prices on Disney tickets.

Consider whether you want to visit the parks on arrival and departure days.

While dropping the luggage and heading straight to the parks sounds like the perfect way to kick off your party, depending on when you arrive or depart, it can actually mean less bang for your buck. We often kick off our first day at the pool in the afternoon and then head to Disney Springs for dinner. Likewise, we often spend our last day at Disney Springs, because inevitably we're looking for that last souvenir we have yet purchased. (And Disney Springs just keeps expanding, including its newest offerings for you sweet tooths — Everglazed Donuts & Cold Brew, Gideon's Bakehouse and the M&Ms Store!)

Take your kids before they turn 3. 

Children under age 3 are free, so many parents will plan visits before that big day.

Consider special event and after-hours tickets. 

Save on Disney World Tickets — Mickey's Once Upon a Christmastime Parade

Mickey's Very Merry Christmas Party and Mickey's Not-So-Scary Halloween Party are two of the most popular events at Disney World. They are also separately ticketed events. While the parties typically don't start until later in the evening, guests with tickets usually can enter Magic Kingdom starting at 4 p.m.

Take advantage of Florida resident tickets.

Florida residents can save even more than out-of-state visitors with Florida resident tickets. Additionally, a couple of times a year Disney will offer additional promos for Florida residents that will allow them to save even more. Discounts on one- and two-day tickets are rare. If you find these, snag them while you can!

See if you qualify for extra discounts. 

If you're a veteran or active duty, you can often buy discount Disney World tickets at the nearest base.

Make sure you're including tax. 

When comparing Undercover Tourist against official prices, make sure you're including the cost with tax so that you have the full picture.

While a few dollars here and there don't always sound like big savings, they can and do add up! For those of you hoping to make your Disney vacation come true, this is often the best way to do it.

Do you have discounted tickets for the Disney after dark at Magic Kingdom? Or the special events (droid making and lightsaber making) when they are available to purchase. Trying to save money on these things.

We have used you guys for years and after our last planned trip fell apart the month Disney shut down we knew we would plan a future trip with your help in the future.
