    We are a family of 6; 4 daughters ages from 14 to 21.This is our first visit to Disney parks on a tight budget but still want to enjoy what may be our only visit as a family.What is the best way and how soon should we buy tickets for late June?

    Hi, Luis!  Honestly, there are very few legitimate Walt Disney World ticket discounts, so I want to caution you that no matter where you look, be very careful.

    You will find the best bang for your buck is when you purchase multiday tickets.  The price per day decreases the more days you purchase.  Another way to save a few dollars is to skip the park hopper option, unless your vacation plan calls for you to visit more than one theme park per day.  We don't do much hopping, and I think the time it takes to get from one park to the next makes it easier to just stay in the same park when begin in.

    There are a couple of reliable places to find some ticket discounts.  AAA usally has vacation packages that are a pretty reasonble deal, and a ticket outlet called Undercover Tourist (which you can find in a Google search) may have a few dollars savings on each ticket.  You might also try Maple Leaf Tickets, although I find there that you definitely have to purchase multiday tickets to see a savings.

    If you are active duty military, retired military, or a 100% service connected disabled veteran, you might also be eligible for ticket discounts through the Armed Forces Salute program.  You would have to be aware of blackout dates with those passes.

    I hope this helps, and I hope the upcoming vacation with your own beautiful princesses is everything you want it to be!
