    I did. We are only buying 2 day base tickets, but by buying today we saved $14.90. There is no advance purchase discount on these tickets, so we were just going to pick them up when we checked in, but the savings today was worth it. Maggie

    I just bought them about 10 minutes ago on Ticketmania. I will buy them now for our trip next year, even if it is just a few dollars! Every little bit helps!!

    Count me in.. :thumbsup2 Just bought thru Undercovertourist.. We are only going for 3 days over Labor Day Weekend but I went ahead and bought 7 day no expiration tickets.. so we will use 3 of the days this year and next year we can go over Labor Day weekend again and take an extra day and wont have to worry about ticket prices going up..

    I bought today also, just before I headed to work for my 3-midnight shift. I got a 10 day park hopper w/water parks, non expiry...$418..OUCH...but I'll use 4-5 days in September and have enough for another trip(or 2) next year! (my December trip is "on work" and I don't have to buy tickets-they are!!)

    Bought 2 10-day hoppers without expiration through Undercover Tourist for $750. From what I can see, I believe I saved about $95 or so. We already have 5 days each left from last year's 10-day tickets :teeth: (which cost about $661 at the time) that we will use in November 2006. We plan on using these new tickets in 2007 :banana: Gotta start planning our next trip!!

    Yesterday (Sat) I upgraded (3) MYW 1 day base tickets to (3) MYW 10day tickets nonexp w/hopping
    I was already thinking of doing that when we check in at AKL 8/17 but wasnt sure if I would or just hold them.

    DS & I will be using the end of our APs 8/12-16 while at VWL. 8/17-20 we change to AKL and we're not going into the parks, taking the time to enjoy that lodge. 8/20-26 we have park hoppers from a few years back so we're planning on using those. The MYW 10 day tickets will be saved for the future.

    Yesterday I bought 3 adult 9 day MYW hoppers w/expiry for 714.00 through ticketmania for our trip in 2 weeks. Even though tickets were supposed to be part of my reservation, they were not listed on the reservation so I bought them separately. I didn't want to take the chance.
    I called CRO and they said the price of the tickets on my reservation wouldn't go up but I've been told things before that weren't true so I had them cancel the ticket portion.

    We had already bought our FL seasonal AP's, but I called 3 sets of friends last night and they all ordered their passes last night.

    I just bought thru the Mousesavers link at Ticketmania and got the "old" price for a 10 Day Adult Park Hopper, Non-Expiry at $374. Looks like their prices, even without the Mousesavers link, haven't been changed yet!

    Just thought I'd let you know. Looks like I saved $61.59 :banana:

    It isn't clear to me that we're assured of getting the tickets we ordered yesterday. The websites take orders, but I remember reading messages last year indicating that in some cases some brokers oversold inventories for some tickets, over the weekend before the price increase, so had to call buyers back the next week and tell them that they couldn't fulfill the orders. Beyond that, some brokers had "old" inventory for some tickets for at least a week after the prices officially increased, and were able to continue selling for the old price for that long.

    Just ordered my 10 day non-expiry PH's this AM from Undercovertourist.com. I saved about $60 a tix over the new Disney prices because I called WDW this AM to confirm their new prices. I probably won't use them for a couple of years as I've got passes left with 8 days total, but I figure there will be at least a couple more price increases by then!

    I just got 5 days for $235incld shipping..HOPE IT COMES THRU....looks like new price is $265+ship & that would be for just 4 days. Didn't really need the 5th day but may get there that night in time to go walk around Epcot F& W.

    got it on ticketmania...have never used them before...getting the tix for inlaws. tickets just have to be used w/in 14 days of start day, right? I can use them for Oct. trip as long as I use all 5 days..got exp tix.

    I would look at it the other way. We were all very lucky to know about this website, and thereby have any advance warning of the price change. If we can capitalize on that insight, and save ourselves some money, then that would be excellent! :thumbsup2 If not, then we're no worse off than if we didn't know about this website, or even if we were just off-line for a few days.

    We bought our tickets yesterday and saved about $90. If anyone didn't get a chance to buy, they might still try their local Disney Store. We chose to get ours there because after taxes they were only about a dollar more than the discount places for the tickets we needed, and this way we had them in hand and supported our local business. They knew nothing of the price increase as of yesterday (which I also saw some Dismembers saying). You might still be able to slip in under the old pricing.
