Discout Tickets

I was wondering if anyone has ever listened to a time share presentation to get discounted tickets?????? Is it worth it? I will be visiting in June and the ticket prices will just about be the death of me, lol...I have 6 kiddos going.

First, I wouldn't count on any tour giving you discount tickets for 8 people. Maybe the 2 adults in the party (assuming you're not the only one). Second, it's not worth my 3 hours and repeatedly saying "no". That's just me though. Have a great trip either way!

The problem with these tickets (aside from the high pressure sales tactics which can be really, really persistent), and the lost vacation time, is the limited number of days on the tickets and the limited number of tickets. These are not regular tickets and can not be upgraded (usually). You couldn't add extra days or options to them- so any savings could be minimal.

IMO- absolutely not worth it unless you are actually considering buying the time share in the first place.

Have you considered enrolling some of the children in the Disney YES program?

It takes a morning of your time, but the activities are educational, and you can get discounted park tickets for your family.

My daughter enrolled our 8 year old grandson in an activity at Epcot. I chaperoned him. It was a good activity. Their discount on the park tickets was significant... in the 30% range, if I recall.

Apologies, Seandee...

I just checked the Disney Yes website for current ticket prices, and it seems they have gone up since our grandson attended his program (2 years ago).

Still a bit cheaper than Underrcover Tourist, but only by about 10% now. Sorry about that.
