Get them for Free

Once upon a time you could get passes for free. It was easy. All you had to do was be born or volunteer for something. That was once upon a time. Now ...

Disney World Tickets for the Military

First of all, let Dad say, thank you for your service. Disney does have ticket discounts for both active duty and retired members of the military. They also have discounted hotel rooms available along with a resort that is totally dedicated to military families.

Annual Passes

Annual Passes are great for those that will be at Disney World more than once in a year, or will stay more than 10 days (the length of the longest Magic Your Way Ticket). A Disney World Annual Pass comes with some perks that you should check out if you're staying outside of Walt Disney World.

Where to buy your tickets

There are lots of places where you can buy tickets. The main place is from Disney itself. However if you are only looking for a ticket (not a package) you can save some money buy buying from Authorized Disney Ticket Sellers.

Disney Tickets are available from just about everyone. There was a time, and maybe you still can, where you could purchase them at Wal Mart.


All of us are looking for ticket deals or cheap tickets. This makes us open to scams. It's natural. We want a good deal. Tickets are expensive and getting more expensive all the time.

Dad gets a question about a ticket scam


Some of the scams are pretty easy to spot, like the one above, but some are innocent. In Dad's humble opinion (see what Dad thinks about IMHO) -




Did you get that?

Where not to buy tickets

A little advice

The first thing to do when you buy Walt Disney Tickets is make a few copies of your receipt and the tickets. Take the copies on your vacation. Stick a copy in the backpack, a copy in a wallet, a copy with the tickets, a copy in your waistband...


You get the idea. Be sure you have a copy any time you enter a park. You never know when gremlins will demagnetize the magnetic strip on the back of the cards. You'll have a easier time at Guest Relations if you have a copy of the receipt.


Another idea is to take a picture of both sides of your tickets with your phone. That way if you have problems you can show the picture to Guest Services.


(Oh, yeah, make sure you have the credit card you used to purchase the tickets with you too.)

Dad's Bottom Line

Disney World Tickets are a big ticket item. It's sad but true. I think Uncle Walt probably turns over in his grave every time Disney raises ticket prices. (Uncle Roy, on the other hand, grins from ear to ear.)
