If you are on your way to Orlando or planning a trip to Orlando Florida with the intention of going to Disney World, you most likely are looking for cheap or discounted Disney tickets and discount travel Orlando in general.
Normally, the longer the amount of time you are looking to get tickets for, the cheaper the tickets.In other words if you are planning to go for only one day you’ll pay more per day than what you would pay if you were planning to buy a multiple-day ticket.
My cousin goes to the time share spiels and listens to them for free Disney tickets. Actually I think she is crazy! Her and her sister both do this, and the last time her sister tried it the place kept them there for most of the day and they hated every minute of it. But my other cousin is a master at it and she has a plan from the outset that she tells them she will listen for a certain amount of time and that’s it. At that point she tells them no and she is leaving and she gets her tickets. But if you are at all wishy washy they will strong-arm you into staying and hearing more. I actually would rather pay two times the full price of tickets rather than go this route but I’m just listing it here because some people like to do this. If you do there are plenty of places around here, especially over on International Drive, where you can find these free ticket offers.
Now, if you are a Florida resident, your very best option is to use one of the Florida resident discounts. They’re really good. I especially like to buy the annual pass, either the full pass or the limited pass which has some blackout dates. If you have an annual pass you can head over to Disney in the afternoon and stay for 2 or 3 hours or so, and not feel guilty about leaving. If you’ve paid 70-plus dollars for a ticket you sort of feel like you have to stay all day to get your money’s worth. That is exhausting to me and I don’t enjoy it. So I never buy one-day tickets, I always get annual passes or something that goes for more than one day. That way I just go at my leisure.
If you plan to park hop, you can by the park-hopper tickets which are more expensive but allow you to go from park to park. Think carefully about this though because one park a day is tiring in itself. More than one park (unless you have that annual pass) is too much I think. So if you only plan to visit one park a day, don’t spend the extra money for a park hopper ticket.
Discount travel in Orlando is indeed possible, but it’s just a matter of doing your research carefully. There are numerous brochures and coupons that you can pick up in the local area magazines in hotel and restaurant lobbies and in the local newspaper. If you can get copies of these before you leave home that would be best. You won’t find any Disney coupons but there are coupons to just about everywhere else.
Also, don’t forget about AAA. You can get a bit of a discount to Disney with them but it’s not a lot.
