Do I buy tickets now or wait for new pricing?

I am so confused. Our next WDW trip is late January/early February and should be value season. Do I buy my tickets now or wait assuming the new ticket prices will be cheaper for us? What would you do?

Personally, I'd buy mine now. You know the price and you know how many days you can use them.

From what I've read the only value days are in the middle of weeks and the ticket prices are actually based on the full time you expect to use them. So if there is a weekend in your stay, those days may(will) be more expensive and change the price of those value tickets. And the new tickets make you have to pick which days you are going to use them and you have fewer (currently 14 days) to use them based on the amount of days you buy.

Apparently there is a price table the shows what the days are designated so you can make an informed decision. I'm not sure where to look, but you could Google it.

Basically, I don't see WDW really being less expensive with the new tickets, it's just some will be more.

The lower-priced days are likely to be mid-week. WDW released a video, and on that shows a calendar with sample pricing that shows how different "start day" means a different ticket price. But there is a disclaimer that prices shown do not represent real ticket prices -- so I don't know how much one can extrapolate from that with regards to what the new prices will be.

In my opinion, only the very lowest of low-priced days may be less expensive than current prices. I'd be surprised if WDW released new ticket pricing and gave us all a price-break

Frankly, I think the information surrounding the new ticket pricing is sorely lacking in specifics. My plan will be to go about my planning and just pay whatever they charge. No way will I tweak and sweat for a few dollars savings. I say you should buy your tickets and not worry about it.

I am planning a trip for late 2019 and during the busy holiday season. It was a no brainer for me to buy my tickets now because there is no way they were going to be cheaper. It was a lot of money I wasn't ready to spend now, but I think it will end up being a savings.
Your case is a little less cut and dried since you will go during the value season. But, tickets have never gone down in price, so at best you might break even, but I would anticipate a slight increase.
If you have the funds now, I would buy them.

I'm new here so I'm trying to catch up. My trip is scheduled for July. Can you recommend a place to buy tickets? It's been years since I've been to Disney and I'm not even sure what magic bands are. Any help would be greatly appreciated from a pro. You can PM me if that's easier. Thanks!
