Disney Touts Advance Ticket Plan

Savings available on Walt Disney World Park Hopper ticket packages

As single-day admission prices to Disney’s four Florida theme parks increased to $50, Walt Disney World set out to encourage travel agents to purchase ticket packages in advance.

Last week, Walt Disney Parks and Resorts unveiled an advance-purchase admission incentive for the Walt Disney World Resort in Orlando. When booking a package in advance or prepurchasing tickets, the resort said, clients can save up to $12 per person, per ticket, on multiday tickets at the gate.

Advance-purchase savings are available in packaged Walt Disney World vacations available through the Walt Disney Travel Co., AAA Vacations and other participating select Disney wholesalers.

Agents may also offer the savings to clients purchasing commissionable multiday Disney tickets separately by calling the Disney reservation center or ordering directly through GDSs, the ARC or other participating Disney wholesalers.

For example, a four-day Park Hopper costs $192 in advance, $199 at the gate; a five-day Park Hopper costs $217 in advance and $229 at the gate.

Advance-purchase savings are available for all Disney Park Hopper, Park Hopper Plus and Ultimate Park Hopper tickets.
