I leave in just a little under 2 weeks to take my boyfriend on his first ever Disney trip. I recently moved to Colorado from Orlando and I was so used to having a Disney annual pass for the last four years or so that it's weird to have to try and find regular priced tickets. Does anyone have any suggestions for me? I need two two-day park hoppers for us.
I still have my Florida ID so I can get Florida resident discounts (does anyone know if it's possible for me to buy tickets with my ID and get his ticket at the FL discount too?). My boyfriend is also active military, so he can get military discounts, but I haven't been able to find decent prices even with that.
I've checked mousesavers and didn't get very far. The Shades of Green link for military prices doesn't seem to save hardly anything at all, and the best deal I seem to have found so far is a 3 day park hopper on Disney's website with my FL resident discount for about $150 (which is cheaper than the 2 day hopper, so we'd just have a wasted day yet still save money). I had thought I'd be able to find a 2 day hopper for less than $150... is this possible?
I got my tickets thru undercovertourist.com, but I agree with others that the real discounts dont start till you hit the three day mark. Also, as far as buying your DBF tickets with your discount, it wont work unless he has FL id also. A FL resident cannot buy tickets for someone else with the discount and I've been told they do check each ticket holders id. Good Luck!
I've looked hard on each of my preceding trips and never been able to beat the prices @ SOG, though this is a fairly small discount. It does help that you don't have to pay any sales tax. Unlike the Florida resident discount, your boyfriend can buy as many tickets as he wants at SOG so he could get your pass there. BTW, your boyriend can also get free admission to SeaWorld.
a Pair & a Spare Ask me about Vinylmation trading!!!
Thanks for the replies everyone. Luckily my sister suggested I call one of her friends who works for Disney, and he's going to get both myself and my boyfriend into the parks on both our days! I'm so happy it worked out. Only 7 days until our trip!!!
