    Hi all! I need to buy tickets for October and I'm nervous now about the price increase. Wondering if I should buy now through Undercover Tourist or if I should hold out in hopes of them offering another Canadian Residents ticket deal when the current one ends tomorrow? What do you guys think? I'm trying to be frugal, the exchange rate is killer lol. Thanks so much :)

    If the budget is very fixed my philosophy is to buy now. By buying now you know exactly what you will pay.

    If you wait you could get lucky: exchange rate improves and Cdn resident offers.....ORRRRRRRR exchange rate worsens, no offers, and tickets go up as opening day of SWGE closes in.

    It'll depend what your risk level is. If they do offer another resident deal I can't see it being cheaper than what is offered now. I haven't checked prices lately but there was a thread where tickets went up. Any new Cdn deal will be discounted off the current prices and therefore likely more than you will pay today. Just my 2 cents

    I can't see another discount any time soon. They timed the expiry of the current ones for both WDW as well as DLR to coincide with the opening of SWGE. They know the crowds will be insane and they don't need to offer anyone an incentive to go. That's my personal opinion and I would love to be wrong.

    Current prices are insane. I priced out tickets for our Christmas trip. Four 10 day park hoppers is a little under $2900 US (start date of Dec 25th which is probably the most expensive tickets you can buy). I can save about $600 by purchasing through UT, so that's a no-brainer.

    I still have one set of non expiring tickets left from the CDN discount a couple of years ago. They are 7 day non hoppers. Paid a little under $1200 US for them back then. To get the exact same tickets now through Disney with a start date of Dec 25th, they are just under $2500 US!

    This is why I only ever get WDW tickets with air miles! I can't imagine forking out the cash for these bad boys...

    Thanks everyone! Yeah, the price of tickets is insane :( We can no longer do anything more than like 4 park days. We're also doing MNSSHP and the cost of that is pretty painful. @ilovetotravel1977 I don't know how you do that with Airmiles!? I feel like I've been collecting them for years and I never get anywhere!
