    hello i need help. we just booked very 1st vaction to orlando. we have not ordered tickets to the parks because i am confused about what i want. i am staying about a mile from the waltdisney front gates and need help finding cheaper tickets to the park

    Hi, Lucy!   You have a few ticket options that offer a  bit of a savings.    One option is if you are a member of AAA.   They offer tickets at a slight discount but you need to go to your local office before you leave for your vacation to purchase your tickets as the AAA discount is NOT offered at ticket windows at WDW.   

    Another option is to go to   This site offers tickets at a slight discount as well, and tickets are mailed directly to your home.   If you choose this option, make sure to allow plenty of time for shipping so you have them before you leave for your vacation.

    You may find other tickets sold at a discount on the internet, but please be very careful that you are buying from a reputable company.   If it sounds like a deal that is too good to be true,  do not continue with the purchase and go for a sure thing with buying directly from  

    To read more about tickets and options, click HERE.   Do some research and really plan out what you want to do during your vacation before you make your purchase.   Good luck, and enjoy your first trip to  WDW!

Meet the Panelist: Cathy, Ohio

Hi, I'm Cathy from Cleveland. I love to travel, especially in the winter to escape the snow and cold of Ohio! My husband and 2 kids share my enthusiasm for travel, so we enjoy our adventures together whether it is hiking at a National Park, sailing on a Disney Cruise Ship, or going to Walt Disney World which is our home away from home. My husband proposed to me in front of Cinderella Castle and we have not stopped visiting ever since! It's a blast helping guests here at planDisney!
