UT Ticket Discount, what am I missing?

Ok, so I used the Mousesavers link to check prices for tickets for our upcoming vacation. I need 4 days, but I'm on the fence about adding PH.

UT says that the 4 day MYW price is only a $2 savings.

UT price $254.95
WDW price $256.00

So that seems right, but then the PH option says that it is a $21 savings.

UT price $311.95
WDW price $313.00

My understanding is that the UT prices include tax and shipping, but that the WDW prices on the website do not. So, is the MYW price a better discount than advertised, or is the PH option not such a deal?

Remember, UT already includes tax, and free shipping.

4 day MYW price:

UT price $254.95
WDW price $256 x 6.5% tax = $272.64
Difference: $17.69

4 day MYW w/PH price:

UT price $311.95
WDW price $256 + $57 (PH) = $313 x 6.5% tax = $333.35
Difference: $21.40

Thanks. That is what I was thinking. I wonder why they list the 4 day MYW price as only a $2 savings though instead of $17.

I just went to UCT w/Mousesavers. It lists the 4-day MWY w/free day as a $17 savings. But that is really a 5-day ticket, which should be compared to a Disney 5-day ticket ($268 x 6.5 = $285.42). Compared with UCT 5-day (4 day+1 day free) ($268.35), it's also a difference of $17.07. The savings price of $17 is correct for either UCT4-day or UCT5-day, but it's very confusing to decipher in a quick glance...

Bottom line -- it's a great price! I always go with UCT.

It is definitely a great deal. I am getting my DS and his GF tickets for Christmas this year. They are joining me and DD13 for a long weekend in January. It is his GF's first trip, and first plane trip too. I am looking forward to sharing the magic!
