    Hi, we are getting the Quick Service Dining Plan during our stay. Do I only need to purchase one theme park ticket using Magic Your Way, and buy the rest from somewhere cheaper? I saw that it is based on nights you stay, not how many tickets you buy. TY!

    In order to purchase a dining plan, your party must do so as part of a vacation package. That includes park tickets and hotel stay for every member of your party.

    I would definitely not recommend looking for another cheaper source for park tickets. The vast majority of them are scams, and by the time you arrive at the park you're out your money and still without a valid admission ticket.

    There are many ways to save money on a Disney vacation - from resort specials to free dining promos, good budgeting and more - but tickets really aren't one of them. There are a very few legitimate sources for slightly discounted Disney park tickets, but even then, the discounts are slight. Maple Leaf Tickets is one that I see recommended quite often, but I have never used them myself. The small savings isn't worth my perceived 'risk', and I've always been more comfortable purchasing directly through Disney. (Through them, a 7 day park ticket is $5 less than purchasing through Disney...but there is a $7 shipping charge)

    You are smart to be looking for ways to stretch your vacation dollars, but it's really safest not to do so on ticketing.

    Good luck!
