    I was rcently referred to to buy tickets from at a cheaper rate. Has anyone ever used this? Is it legit?

    Hi, Amber!

    Always be cautious when ordering tickets outside of Disney.  I am NOT saying they are not legitimate, I really have never heard of them.  However, tickets are only valid if never used as tickets are non-transferrable between guests.  There is also no way to check the validity of the tickets until you are actually in Walt Disney World, and if there is a problem, you are stuck.

    That said, I have purchased tickets that have a slight discount through my local AAA office and also through a website called   I would recommend both places. 

    Remember, if you plan to purchase a vacation package while visiting Walt Disney World (including the Disney Dining Plan) you will need to include park tickets, so plan before you buy all your tickets.  If you are planning to book a "room only" reservation or are staying off property, then buying your tickets ahead of time is a good idea. 

    There is always the guaranteed success of buying right through Disney.  You can purchase tickets online at or at the gate, whatever you are most comfortable with.     I hope this helps!

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!
