View Full Version : Am I doing the math right with tickets?

We, a family with 3-10+age tickets and 1 - 3 thru 9 age ticket want to buy 6 days worth of tickets (we also have the freebie kid at 2 yrs old). We are are actually only planning to use 3 days worth. We purchase 6 days at 217 each x3 which is $651 and 1-3thru9 age at $181. We use 3 days worth and have 3 days left. We then ask to purchase the no exipration option for the 3 days left on the tickets at $20 each person which is $80. That should be $912. If we were to purchase 3 days each person for two different trips at $203 x3 10+ age ticket plus 1 3 thru9 age ticket at $160 (again x all by 2 trips) that would be $1538. So if I were to buy 6 days now for all and at 3 days left add the no expiration option we would save about $600 on 2 trips? :scared1:

If I'm understanding you correctly, you want to add the no-expiration option for the 3 days you have remaining on your tickets? When you add the no-expiration option, you have to add it for all of the days of your tickets, regardless of how many you want to carry over. For example, you buy 6 day tickets and want to make 3 days not expire, you have to buy 6 days of non-expiring option, not 3. If you buy 10 days and use 9 and just want to make that last day not expire, you still have to pay for the 10 days' worth of non-expiring.

The gate price for a six day ticket is 239.63 for adults and 202.35 for kids 3-9, including tax. You can find some discounts - check Undercover Tourist (especially using the mousesavers.com newsletter link) or Maple Leaf Tickets (or AAA if you are a member). You might be getting your numbers from one of those sites.

Adding the no-expiration option to a six day ticket is 85.20 per ticket (including tax). It doesn't matter how many days are left on your ticket when you add no-exp - you pay the no-exp price based on the number of days your ticket had.

So no, you're not doing the math right. :goodvibes You need to pay $85.20 per ticket to add no-expiration, not $20 per ticket. Also, make sure you are including tax if you are getting ticket prices off the Disney website.

Following are gate prices for base (non-hopping) tickets. You have to add 6.5% to each amount. Many of the discounters include the tax in their quoted prices.

Your prices are not correct to start with.

3-day adult $212 * 3 = 636. 3-day child = $179. Total $815 for one trip, $1,630 for two trips (and this does not include possible price increases).

6-day adult with NE $305 * 3 = $915. 6-day child NE = $270, total $1,185 for two trips.

Saving is $445

Cheshire Figment-thanks... after several checks I came up with the amount of savings you did. We will more than likely pay the extra $300+ extra for the no expirations that will save us in the end the $445
