    Hi Cathy. Thanks for all your great advice. I was wondering if the park ticket prices online are the same as if you bought at guest services? We want 5 day basic but want to know if it is cheaper to pre-purchase. Thanks again.

    Hi, Lindsey!   The prices at the gate will be the same as the prices online when purchasing tickets directly through WDW.   If you plan to have the tickets shipped to you, this will cost you a few extra dollars, but to avoid shipping you can simply have the tickets waiting for you at Will Call.

    If you have some time before your vacation, to save some money you can check out tickets at your local Automobile Association office if you are a member.   You might also want to visit   (With, you avoid tax and shipping fees.  See their site for details.)    You can usually save a few dollars by purchasing through these outlets. 

    Finally, click HERE.   Sometimes, you will find it cheaper to purchase an entire Disney Package including room, tickets, and even dining.  Good luck finding the perfect tickets for your upcoming vacation!
