You can visit the mousesavers.com website and give them your e-mail address.

To save on tickets, try using one of the online ticketbrokers:
The Official Ticket Center (http://www.officialticketcenter.com/cgi-bin/store/commerce.cgi?product=tickets&refer=TC11WT#TICK-PRC)
Ticketmania (http://www.ticketmania.com/discounttickets.shtml)
Undercover Tourist (http://www.undercovertourist.com/united-states/florida/orlando/attractions/tickets/)
Discount Orlando Vacation (http://www.discountorlandovacation.com/cgi-bin/ccp51/cp-app.cgi?pg=cat&ref=specials)
Maple Leaf Tickets (http://www.mapleleaftickets.com/)
Compare their prices, including tax and shipping charges. And if you sign up for the MouseSavers.com Newsletter (http://www.mousesavers.com/newsletter.html) (which comes out on the 15th of every month), you'll find links in it for even lower ticket prices at one or more of the above ticketbrokers.

The best move I've ever made with tickets is to get a 10 day MYW park-hopper/never expires ticket. It's already paid for at 2005 prices and we only used 3 days off it on our last trip, so we still have 7 unused days. Our next trip won't be till 2007 at the earliest and I'm sure prices will have jumped by then. We'll probably still only use 4-5 days and spend the rest of the trip at our resort or DTD, thus leaving at least 2 days unused for a third trip, at which point we'll have to buy more tickets. I picked up this tip from Mousesavers web site and unless you buy AP or do better with a package deal it seems to me to get the most bang for your buck if you plan on visiting Disney regularly. :cool1:

If you are at least 26 and meet certain income requirements and don't mind spending around 2 hours on a timeshare tour, then you can get some good savings that way.

I would buy tickets for as many days as you can afford. It is cheaper that way. If you or a family member is in the military you can buy them at www.shadesofgreen.org and if not, the links already listed are a great place to start.

You have to ask yourself some tough questions....

Do you REALLY need Park Hopping? How many day are you going to spend at the water parks REALLY?

Here is my situation. We will be getting 4 adult tickets (kids will be 11 and 10) in May 2007.

We probably will only need a 4 day pass and will spend 1 day at a water park. If we get just 4 base adult tickets and buy the Water Park tickets separately, our cost comes in at $980US. (As an aside, if you up your # of days to 5... the cost only jumps to $997US.. so it's something to consider)

If you get a 4 day hopper pass with magic plus, the price is $1214US.

There. Assuming I have my numbers right, going with base tickets and buying your Water Park passes separately (if you are only going once) saves you somewhere in the neighborhood of $250US.

Since I am a Canadian, I have to add about 10% onto that for exchange, but the theory still applies.

Hope you find this helpful
