Easy to overlook them since they don't look like "links"! I could have (should have! ) been more specific!

I hope you're able to find a good discount! Let us know!

Hello all...

I have a question.... We will be staying at the Dolphin this coming June. We stayed at BWI last summer and had KTTW cards. What do the tickets look like if I am not staying at a Disney owned resort? And where is the best place to buy them? I know the FP system looks like it may be changing and things may even change between now and June. But I was just wondering what the difference is now... TIA!

Welcome to the dis, Cindy.

The tickets will be the tyvek based 'paper' tickets with an image of one of the characters on it.

Scroll towards the bottom here...

Best place to buy is probably Undercover Tourist.

And you probably want to do so as soon as you're able. Last year they increased ticket prices in early June, and this year it was rumored that it might happen even earlier. Once the announcement happens that prices will be going up, Undercover Tourist gets FLOODED and shipping can take longer than usual. You don't want to run the risk of your tickets not arriving in time for your trip!

Thanks Dan and SRUAlmn!

Very helpful info!

One more thought...How big are the tickets? I have a lanyard with an ID holder that is credit card sized. Will they fit in it?

Thanks again!

Yes - great advice! The word has already started to spread that a price increase pre-June is a real possibility.

Great advice for the majority of the time, but with Fast Pass+ possibly being introduced soon, right now might be the exception? FP+ will in some way be tied to the tickets (possible pin code?) and possibly require tickets to be purchased directly from Disney, leaving services like Undercover Tourist out in the cold? Maybe this is somehow tied into the rumors of pre-June price increases. If your happy with the current FP system and don't care about FP+ I'm sure its safe to go the UT route, but if you have any interest in FP+ you may want to wait.

In case you don't know about FP+ is, based on the rumors the user would be able to preselect online, up to 60 days in advance, 3-4 FP+ tickets a day per day. Beyond that not much is known yet and even that not set in stone.

We are going in mid-June and I personally hope the system isn't fully running by then, but want to keep the option open.

VERY good point. I wasn't even thinking about your needing to have DISNEY purchased tickets to be able to reserve your FP+, I guess I just thought you could attach your FP reservations to your room reservation (even if it was only room only.)

When do you think we Dolphin/Swan patrons will know how FP+ works?

They could be attached to the room reservations. Guess we won't know until it goes live, but I like leaving my options open.

My guess is when everyone else does. There was a rumor that the Beach Club was supposed to be the first test resort in late February, but I haven't seen anything posted about it yet. I was hoping it would be up in running far enough in advance of our trip in June that we could make a more informed decision! Doesn't look like that will be the case.

We were in the test group for FP+ in December & it was tied to our room ressie, not tickets. I have an AP but the other party in my group had a regular ticket purchased thru UT. Not sure if it will always be like this, or if they are making changes!

A CM friend said they are testing right now only at AKL. We are staying there next week but haven't heard a word about it. I'm hoping I don't - I like it the old way. We ended up only using one of our FP+ options on the December trip, and we had pre-selected 6.

After recent posts about SPG cash & points stays, I just wanted to mention that Starwood made changes just the other day for how much cash/points it costs now in all categories. For S/D, I was able to get my C&P nights at 4,000 points + $60 cash -- but effective for all bookings beginning 3/5, C&P at S/D is now 5,000 points + $75 cash. Just a heads-up.

As far as FP+, I'm thinking that it shouldn't matter where you purchase your tickets from as they're actually issued by Disney to third-party seller (UT, AAA, etc.). If FP+ will be tied to tickets, you should be able to enter the ticket number -- which is a number issued by Disney regardless of where you bought them. I think the bigger factor, as most of you have mentioned, will be where you're staying -- at least for the time being, while they're working out the testing.

Oh my!! Thanks for the heads-up. Glad I already booked my Cash & Points reservations for November. The increase to $75 doesn't bother me as much as the 5,000 points does -- I work hard to earn those extra 1,000 points!

This is what I think also. I hope we're both correct!
