Children see magic because they look for it
- Sep 26, 2009
A 7-day hopper for early April went up $32 so I grabbed an e-ticket from UT that was sitting in my cart. I have an AP that is good until next October but my daughter needed a ticket.
No change in Canadian prices so bonus for us!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.
I’m in the same situation. I tried asking to upgrade noting the upcoming changes and my intention to upgrade and pleading with them that I needed to be able to budget, especially given that my currency had been falling dramatically this year. The answer was simply no. I’m now looking at about $50 extra but who knows how they will calculate it and whether they take the value of the ticket at time it was purchased or value of the ticket had I purchased it now (it’s an undercover tourist park hopper). Very disappointed as that’s about $70AU extra that I hadn’t budgeted and couldn’t predict.DVC AP Gold, UP $21.30 per adult including ta...REALLY? Didn't have a choice, purchased a 4 day park hopper 60 days ago, intended to upgrade during our Oct trip. Once the news broke about the pricing structure change, I would have upgraded to the AP, but couldn't, since it has to be done in person. Many "predicted" that AP would not change, well here it is! 4 day park hopper pass increased by $15.01 per adult, If there is a "silver" lining, to the DVC AP Gold increase, guess at least I should be glad that I "saved" here on our 4 day hopper, 2 of us, $30.02.
And I noticed that the cost difference between peak and value prices are only $5 for 7- and 8-day passes, and increases in difference with the fewer number of days you purchase. I wish I had time to do the nerdy math on this, but I’m sure SOMEONE will!There seems to be more variability in price per day with the 2 and 3 day tickets.
