Buy Tickets Out there or online ?

I have heard many different opinions on the best way to buy WDW, Universal, Seaworld and Busch Garden tickets.

Is it cheaper to buy tickets online or to get them while our there?

If I buy online I have been told its best to get real tickets to save queueing as well.

Any thoughts welcome, we are off in April.

Thanks

I would never buy them out there. Online discounts usually if you buy in advance.
What tickets do you want? UK tickets have to be bought here, you can't get them once you get there.
Try Kenny's thread to help with prices http://www.disboards.com/showthread.php?t=2870568

For me its all down price, we quite enjoy going to DTD on our first evening to exchange vouchers into tickets, Seaworld & Universal both have machines outside the turnstiles to collect tickets, never had to line up at any park to exchange.

thanks for the info, i will go and have a look at kennys thread.

I need to work out what tickets to get the most from our money, so many places sell similar packages with prices that change frequently so i think im going to have to spend some time pricing up each option.

Good to know vouchers may prove worth it however if you have had no problems with queuing

You get 1 ticket that lets you into all parks for 14 days. You can collect it from any guest services, they are just outside every park or at Downtown Disney. I like to goto DTD on our first evening and collect them, its always been quiet there when we have been.
