The Cheapest Disney World Tickets – In One Chart

Share This!

Every night we check the price of Disney World tickets sold by Disney themselves, and 9 authorized third-party wholesalers such as The Official Ticket Center, Undercover Tourist, and more. We use these prices in our Least Expensive Ticket Calculator, a tool that tells you the least expensive combination of tickets you need for your trip, and where to buy them. So instead of you having to compare prices across 9 different vendors, we’ll do the math for you.

The Calculator is a great tool, but sometimes (like when we’re making recommendations for our book) we want to know which vendors are offering the lowest prices on a consistent basis. For that, a chart comparison is handy. We’ve produced one below.

These charts show you which vendor is selling the cheapest Disney World tickets (as of Friday, September 25). All of the prices include tax and shipping. Here’s the chart for adult ticket prices:

A couple of interesting things in those adult ticket prices:

  • Disney doesn’t discount its 1- or 2-day tickets to wholesalers.
  • You’ll save about $5 (around 3%) per person buying a 3-day base ticket from a wholesaler versus buying from Disney directly. But you’ll save more than $49 (around 13%) on a 4-day hopper with Water Park Fun and More, and that’s a decent chunk of change.
  • For 3-, 4-, and 5-day tickets, the cheapest vendors’ prices are usually within pennies of each other, and rarely more than $1 off. If you prefer one third-party vendor over another, go with that one.
  • Besides Disney, there are really only 3 places you need to look at for adult tickets: The Official Ticket Center, by subscribing to the Mousesavers.com newsletter, and Parksavers.com.  The Official Ticket Center seems to have really good prices across the board today, so that’s reason enough to look there. Another advantage of subscribing to the Mousesavers newsletter is that it has discounts on Disney and non-Disney hotels and car rentals as well (plus the occasional TouringPlans discount!).

Here’s the same chart showing ticket prices for children ages 3-9:

It’s the same general pattern as the adult ticket chart: Disney doesn’t discount the 1- or 2-day tickets, and there are only 3 vendors you need to consider. There’s a bit more price competition in the 3-, 4-, and 4-day tickets here than in the adult chart. Each of those vendors is generally still within a few cents of the others.

    If you are eligible through your employer, ticketsatwork.com has some good deals right now. Just bought 7 day Park Hopper tickets for $372.00 for adults and $349.00 for children.

      I bought through ticketsatwork.com as well. And in addition they gave me employee perk points (which I can use for other items and discounts). Glad to see it was indeed a good value.

    I forgot to add the taxes on the tickets at work price so they are actually a couple dollars more than the lowest price listed here…sorry.

      Some of the 5-day tickets are a bit cheaper at ticketsatwork, Brian, so that’s good. Thanks for the tip!

    So if you want a 4-day WP&F, it’s cheaper to also add park hopper?

    I realize I’m late to the party, but I wanted to say a quick THANKS for putting this together. It seems like a great thing to add to the Dashboard for subscribers. Even better, make it an automatically updating chart so that it’s accurate as of the previous day’s data.

    Oh, and for the discounted entries it would be nice to see the official WDW direct price as a baseline.

    Thanks!
    -Brett.
