Never expire tickets, are they a good deal?

Never expire tickets, are they a good deal?

We are planning WDW trip in Dec 2010, thinking of getting 10 days base + non expire, use half of it then save some days for next year. Are the Disney never expire tickets a good deal?

If we can't make the 2nd visit in next 1~2 year, my elder one (now 8) will be over 10, will she still be able to use the kid ticket when she is 11?

Another question, is renting a stroller a good or bad idea for two girls of 6 and 8?

Dad's not now, not ever Answer

To quote one of my all time favorite movies (yes, Dad has an eclectic taste in movies)Run Away! Run Away!

The never expire option does not now, or will it ever make sense. I don't care what anyone says about inflation. A 7 day base ticket without any options costs $247.00. That same ticket with ONLY the never expire option costs $389.00 ...

HEY DAD

In the immortal words of one of your favorite songs of all times "STOP RIGHT THERE ..."

What? Oh, yeah, I'm wasn't comparing apples to apples. Maybe a better way to look a this is ...

If you take 2 five day trips to Disney World you would spend $474.00 for 2 five day base tickets, so how much would one 10 day ticket that will never expire cost? MMmmm ... $475.00. So you will actually save money if you have two trips planned. $1.00 plus whatever price increases Disney has in the interim.

Dad's not a big fan of the never expire option. I used to be, but they jacked up the price several years ago.

Now about that what happens if ... If you child turns 10, you will have to pay the difference between the child price and the adult price for any unused days.

10 Day No Expiration
by: Anonymous

What if I want to purchase 10 1-Day No Expiration and only use 1 or 2 a year? Seems like the best way to go for me.

Dad's Answer

That might work if you live close enough to drive. For most of us the cost to get to Disney World is too high to go just for a couple of days a year. But if you live within driving distance a 10 day Magic Your Way ticket with the no expiration option makes a lot of sense.

Thanks.

Rent-a-Stroller
by: Mrs. Mom

Since Dad didn't answer your question about a stroller, I will. RENT a stroller for your girls! My brother-in-law rented a double one daily when all 15 of us went in 2003. My 4 and 6 year old nephews used it alot and we would often find my 8 year old nephew and 10 year old niece taking a break from walking.
