I have a hotel only stay booked for the end of April. Was planning on buying tickets from undercover tourist this month (I need 2 adult tickets for DS10 and me). Now I’m not sure that we will be going due to hockey. Basically I would like to put off buying tickets for as long as possible, but hockey things may not be decided until Jan or Feb. If he does not go in April, I will take DS6 in April or Nov.
Is there a downside to not buying tickets until Jan? Price going up? Are park days for the end of April really going to book up in Jan? I doubt it, so this is what I’m leaning towards doing.
The undercover tourist website says they provide refunds with a 5% restocking fee (which is significant when it’s $2000 CND in tickets). They also seem to do changes, but what happens if I need to change 2 adult tickets to 1 adult and 1 child? Would they refund me the difference?
You might want to actually ask UT directly about some of your concerns. I have found their customer service, historically, to be quite good.
As far as waiting…it is always a gamble, because Disney could choose to raise prices at any time…but historically, I think the January/February months are most common.
If you are able to act fast, often as soon as Disney raises prices, UT will still have a limited number of tickets at the previous price point…so if Disney announces an increase, you can jump over to UT immediately and still be okay (usually).
