    What is the cost for park tickets at the disney store now? I found tickets at undercovertourist.com for $211.95 for an adult 4 day MYW ticket PLUS 2 free days. That price included tax and free shipping. I looked on my local AAA website and the cost for similiar tickets was $50 more!

    Depending on our situation, we'll go through Undercovertourist.com. Now this is through a link from mousesavers.com, so you need to get on their email list first. They normally give you a free day and there is no shipping charges or tax.

    Disney Store. You're buying through Disney, so you know you're getting exactly what you want. You have them in your hand, no waiting to see and hope that the ones you're sent are the right ones, and you get Disney's advance purchase discount.

    The online sites might be a cost savings of a few dollars, I suppose. But I don't like the concept of dealing with a third party or not having the tickets in my hand, so I can see exactly what I purchased.

    We bought ours at the Disney Store for our last trip, very convenient and I really liked having our tickets already in hand. I had shopped around and didn't find a huge price difference, plus I had a $25 gift card that I used toward the cost of the tickets....

    I didn't see a discount for purchasing the tickets in advance on the Disney site, am I doing something wrong?

    Undercovertourist is one of the few that Disney gave the OK to sell tickets.

    When we bought ours last November, we got actual hard tickets (they look like gift cards). So you can walk right up to the gate and use them right away!
