That’s not really any different than booking a throwaway room right now.
Currently that would work as long as you have valid ticket media associated with your account. Moving forward ticket media will have some sort of start timeframe right? I'm wondering if the new system will continue to use hotel stay + ticket or hotel stay + ticket within a certain timeframe to calculate FP dates.

    I'd love to see one of the saved posts simply do the math and give a general breakdown of the prices:

    Like --
    Cheapest daily ticket is $X on Y days of the year.
    Most expensive daily ticket is $X on Y days of the year.

    What the new average price is .. etc. (the most common price on the most number of days of the year).

    I wonder if this new pricing structure will basically give us a HUGE hint when Star Wars Galaxy Edge will open. Or will they simply just elevate all the prices from Thanksgiving on in anticipation?

    Odds are this first year won't really matter as a lot of guests may have already booked their 2019 trips (with tickets) .. so the actual prices may not matter besides giving us a baseline for 2020 and beyond.

    I priced out tickets for myself yesterday, both full price and Canadian resident price, so that I can compare the difference. Due to my husband's work, the only time we can travel is during the busy summer season, so it will be interesting to see the difference.

    As of current pricing, 4 day base pass for the four of us (3 x 10+ and 1 x child), is $1597.50 with tax, at full price. Or $1332.32 with the Canadian resident discount. Let's see what it is in about 12 hours assuming a June/July vacation.

    All of the speculative questions have been posted in this thread:
    New ticket system coming to WDW - Begins October 16th

    which will be open for reference and for more speculation until confirmed facts are added to this thread.

    This new thread is for posting facts beginning tomorrow. Pertinent info will be added to the first posts and @Robo will be updating the Ticket Sticky as facts become known.

    Closing this thread for a bit while Mods confer.

    Ticket prices are available for next 14 months so until Dec 16, 2019. I cannot see where prices hint to SW:GE opening.

    Updated: Appears to follow 4 prices (my names, just getting info out): Basic $109, Value $114, Regular $122 and Peak $129 (before tax) for 1 day tickets.

    As of 6:59am booking resort packages does not seem to be available yet.

    the flexible date option is interesting. Looks like a steep fee (about 58 a person) to preserve flexibility to the end of the calendar year. Price jumps don't seem too awful for my dates (mid August) but I am glad I bought in advance and didn't have to decide whether or not to pay for the flexibility option that is baked in on my UT tickets.
