    Question Tickets on Room Key Ques.

    I was considering purchasing my tickets through my travel agent but I want to have them built into my room key. I like only having to carry one card with me. Will Disney transfer the tickets onto my room key or do I have to purcahse them at the resort for that? Thanks.

    I bought mine last year thru an online broker and was able to put it on my room key, no problem at all.

    I think the difference is that you don't pay tax at undercovertourist. and shippin gis free as long as you use the basic shipping and not air freight

    Nope. The discount is already included in the price listed on Disney.com. The discount is the fact that if you buy them in advance on Disney.com or at the Disney Store, they're cheaper than if you buy them at the gate. There is nothing extra to do to get the discount - no special links or offers to look for.

    Yes and No. If you buy Magic Your Way tickets from Disney Store, you get the actual ticket right then and there. That's the physical ticket you'll put in the turnstyles. If you buy an Annual Pass from the Disney Store, you actually have a voucher that has to be redeemed for a real Annual Pass at a Guest Services window. I redeemed mine on May 20, 2006 at the ticket windows of Disney/MGM, around 4 or 5pm, and there was no line of any kind. (Note that your 366 day window for the annual pass starts the day you redeem the voucher, not the day you buy the voucher nor the day you first use the annual pass).

    I purchase my tickets through work (government) they I believe have the cheapiest tickets out there. So if you know a government employee ask them to get your tickets.

    I didn't see one either but when I talked to a Disney rep they said that you save between 5-7 dollars when buying your tickets online and having them either be put at will call or on your room key instead of buying there at Disney.

    I like to get everything directly from Disney especially because they send me postcards and stuff that say "we're glad you're coming back!"

    Bad Online Experience

    I had a bad online purchase. I clicked only once but recieved two sets of tickets and was charged for three sets. It took me almost two months to get the issue resolved. The next tickets we need to buy will be bought at the park or our resort.

    Disney online and the Disney Store should be the same pricing. It's the advanced purchase price. (Disney no longer owns the Disney Stores, but park tickets are more than OK to purchase there. It was one of the deals in the contract.) Buying them w/ a package is also on advanced purchase pricing.

    AAA will have discounted tickets. All regions are different, though, so you'd need to check local policies. The AAA in my area has pricing on their website that include tax and the AAA member discount. It looks like more than disney.com is selling them for, but on disney.com you have to proceed to check out to get the price w/ tax.

    I would do all I could not to buy them on arrival as that is when they are the most expensive.

    Actually when I started this thread back in February I bought two 3-day Magic Your Way tickets at the Disney Store and was only given vouchers, which meant I still had to wait inline and waste valuable disney time. This time I'm doing a package with "Magic for Less" and having them do all the work. Hopefully this will be better than doing it myself.
