    Default OT - Disney Tickets

    DH has been at a conference all week and won the grand door prize of 3 days 2 nights at a Disney resort right across from Disney World. Neither DH or I have ever been. A quick Google search shows tickets to be around $85 each. Is that the cheapest price, or is there a cheaper way to do it? How hot is it in the summer? Or is over Christmas a better time to go? What all is included in the $85 ticket. Is that just to get in or does it include rides?

    Thanks for any tips you have.

    The more days you get the cheaper it is per day, get park hopper tickets so you can visit more than one park in the same day. It includes all shows and rides. Sometimes you can find discounts. They have all kinds of bulletin boards and forums dedicated to Disney World that give tips you should check some of them out.

    It's been some time since I've been (congrats btw!) and I agree with Gloria, try for park hopper passes. Your pass includes rides but not food or souvenirs.

    I would say Christmas break would be a great time. We went in May and it was 100 degrees each day plus it is super humid. February/March is a nice time to go as well.

    Your girls are home-schooled right, so I'd go in January or the very end of September. It is too hot in the summer and I bet holidays are blocked out on your passes and its busy which means food will be higher. though you can bring food into the parks. And I'd skip the park hopper if it's your first time. We didn't use it once; we couldn't do everything in any of the parks. Alaynnasmommy is a freak about disney she should be able to help.

    I would check out these youth education series packages. If you sign your kids up for one of these classes it reduces the price of their ticket. They just have to go to a class that you sign up for, usually about 3 hours. We did this when we went, and my sister goes all the time and she has done it many times with her kids. The only problem is you have to reserve the classes well in advance because they fill up. They usually post the classes for the new season in about Feb. I think.

    Also, try checking with the hotel to see if they sell discounted tickets. Not sure if Disney does that, but in a lot of places you can buy discounted tickets for local attractions at local hotels.

    Thanks for the great ideas. DH only get a few personal days a year, do it would need to either be over Christmas break or the summer. I was thinking the summer would be too hot.

    We went in early June and it was hot but it wasn't that bad. The only thing about going at Christmas is that it might not be warm enough for the kids to enjoy the pools or waterparks. If it is a Disney resort all transportation between the hotel and the parks is provided which is really nice because you can go to the park in the morning, come back for a nap in the heat of the day and then go back in the evening.

    Honestly you will be miserable during the summer. It is extremely humid and hot. Verrrrrry hard to handle. But during holidays the wait times are crazy. The best months to go imo are sept, oct, nov, sme of march, april, and beginning of may. Excuse lack of caps.

    P.s i lived there my whole life

    DH could take his few personal days combined with a weekend. I will have to ask him about it. The girls could go anytime and just go longer into the summer to make up the time.

    If you leave and come back do you have to pay again, or do you get an all day stamp?
