Okay. So I’m thinking about our May 2020 trip, and when best to buy tickets.
Typically, I buy from UT, and take advantage of their Black Friday-Cyber Monday deals to get best prices. But this year, I’m thinking that might be a bad idea.
Considering the amount Disney just raised prices at Disneyland due to SWGE opening, I’m anticipating a similar ticket price increase coming for WDW ahead of SWGE opening there. But, it appears you can’t buy date-based tickets more than about a year out. This means that, providing Disney doesn’t do ticket price increases prior to May, I may want to buy the tickets in May 2019 for May 2020 to lock in pre-SWGE pricing.
I hate to buy the tickets that far in advance. But does it seem reasonable? While the price increase for an individual might not be a lot, when you add it up across 8 people, it makes a difference.
And, as a follow up, since I plan to buy an annual pass, can you pay for the annual pass that far in advance? Basically, I mean buy the annual pass, but activate it May 2020. I’m not sure if that’s even allowed.
