Disney World tickets are probably going to be the second most expensive budget line item right after your hotel. So of course just like your hotel costs you are going to want to get the pricing down as much as possible. But can you really find any discounts on Disney World Tickets? Yes! Of course you can. While the savings aren’t going to be drastic every little bit helps when you are on a budget. So here are some tips on getting discount Disney World tickets.
Authorized Disney Ticket Sellers with Discounts
The savings from an authorized Disney World ticket reseller can range anywhere from $4 to $60 per ticket. Below are a few different online discount retailers that we recommend. Park Savers is running a sale on a variety of Disney world tickets. Best of Orlando is offering Disney World Base Ticket: Buy 4 Days & get 5th Day Free! Undercover Tourist is offering discounted Disney World Tickets as well!
Discount Disney World Ticket Sellers to Avoid
It’s always a good idea to be skeptical of anyone trying to sell you discounted Disney World tickets. There are a few authorized dealers out there that are legit but there are a lot of places that are not so ethical. The places you see on the side of the road off of 192 are a scam. It’s also a safe bet to stay far away from anyone trying to sell you their tickets on eBay or Craigslist.
So why do I warn you to stay far away from those non authorized dealers? Typically these people are buying the unused days off of real Disney World tickets. Then they turn around and resell them as if they were brand new (aka you would have the full 14 days from activation to use them). They normally reveal themselves when they insist you give them the exact days you plan on using your ticket.

- First head on over to Raise.com to buy up some discounted Target gift cards. This is a legit way to buy gift cards from others at a discount, they are verified and any purchase comes with a one year money back guarantee!
- Then head over to Target and get either a Target Redcard Debit or a Target Redcard Credit. This will allow you to get 5% back on all your purchase you make at Target.

You can also do this same process with BJs.com if you are a club member. The problem is it’s a lot harder to find BJ’s gift cards at Raise.com so that’s why we recommend sticking with Target.
I have been visiting the parks annually since my parents first brought me at just a year old. Recently I was able to fulfill my life long dream of being a Florida local and moved from the wintery Northeast to the sunshine and fun of central Florida. Now I am hoping to share my Disney knowledge with you so you can have the best vacation possible!
