Get reduced price tickets for a short stay.
There aren’t many ways to beat the system when it comes to buying park tickets at Disney World. Disney has however, created a loophole for savvy guests. What I’m about to share will best benefit those like myself who may visit Disney World two or three times in a year for a stay of 3 to 4 days. If you are visiting frequently, an annual pass for $619 (non Florida residents) is an option.
If an annual pass doesnt make sense for you, consider this. Buy extra days of park admission while you’re at WDW with the no expiration option.
For example, if you are planning a short trip for 3 days and know that you’ll be returning for more short trips of 3 to 4 days in the future, buy a 10 day ticket and upgrade to a no expiration option for the unused days on the first trip.
Let’s do the math. Currently a 3 day Magic Your Way ticket for an adult is $219. That makes it $73 per day for an adult to enter 1 park. A 4 day Magic Your Way ticket would come to $56.25 per day.If you buy a 10 day Magic Your Way ticket the cost is $243. That brings the cost down to $24.30 a day. The fee for a no expiration option for 10 days is $209. The cost for a 10 day ticket with no expiration excluding tax comes to $452. So tickets now total $45.20 a day before tax.
This option is really only advantageous for those who know that they will be making short trips to Disney in the future.
Prices only go up each year (usually in the beginning of August). So if you plan on going on short trips to WDW adding up to 10 days in total over time, you can know that you have the option to lock in a price now that will be lower than your next visit. You just have to pony up the money now. You save the most money if your visits are 4 days or less each time because the less time you are at Disney, the more expensive the tickets are. So if you buy a 10 day Magic Your Way ticket with no expiration you are locking in a price of $45.20 per day for the future. With Park Hopper Option, $50.40. Again these are prices before tax.
Confusing, sure. Fact, you can save some money this way. Basically, you are locking in a lower price that doesn’t expire for future visits. You can also add on Water Park option as well. From this point on, it’s you and the calculator. Be savvy, try this out. You will be rewarded with extra dollars in your pocket to save or spend at Disney.
