or should I order them? My mom just went and this place assured her cheaper than the gate and sure enough, it was a little cheaper at the gate...

any tips? then again - we leave May 3rd, so not sure we'd have enough time to get them unless express mailed, there goes any savings.

dont do those time share things sure you get a bit of a discount but it eats up half your day listening to them blab. we did it.. wasent worth it. we get a discount because we are floridians there are a few sits that advertise cheaper tickets . the advantage is that you dont have to wait in line because you already have your tickets . disadvantage is they might not get there in time and the postage is a killer. They also have will call service at the park so you can purchace on line then pick them up at will call which is faster then standing in line for tickets.it also depends on how many days your staying and part hoppers etc. look up intercot.com or mousesavers.com i use theses site all the time for deals on hotels and helpful hints. you can also go to disney.com and look up ticket prices since they just incresed , so did strollers etc too.. if you need more info let me know i live in florida 2 hrs south of Dw ( ok hate me now ) he hee
if i find any good deals i will pass them along :)

We have done Will Call and it works out great. The following is from WDW Ticket FAQ (http://disneyworld.disney.go.com/wdw/common/helpFAQ?id=HelpFAQTicketsPage#q6):

Q. I ordered my tickets for Will Call; when and where can I pick them up?

A. Ticket orders placed before midnight (Eastern Time) can be picked up the next day. Upon arrival, pick up your Will Call ticket order at one of the following ticket sales locations: Epcot®, Disney's Animal Kingdom™ Theme Park, Disney's Hollywood Studios™ or the Ticket and Transportation Center at Magic Kingdom® Park. You will need to present your Will Call certificate along with a valid photo I.D. (e.g., driver's license, passport or military I.D.).

hth!
