When should I buy tickets?

Hey, hoping for some advice!

I’m visiting in October (staying off site) and wondering when I should buy my tickets? I want to visit each of the four parks once (maybe HS twice). In the UK, where we’re based, it seems that the 14-Day Magic Ticket is the obvious option. Is this the best route and should I buy it ASAP?

Also, if I only need Genie+ for four days, can I buy them on a per day basis or do I need to get for the whole 14 day pass (at +£ 6.99 /Day £98 total)?


You can buy G+ for select days, but not in advance. I believe you can buy G+ starting at midnight for the day.

Cannot comment on UK tickets, but generally you would buy tickets when your travel dates firm up.

thanks! What’s the per day cost? Assume buying on the day makes more sense.

The cost is $15 + tax per day.

There is a very comprehensive thread if you need more info on G+ :


I’d buy tickets as soon as possible in order to make park reservations.

I read on Touring Plan’s WDW Chat about a special offer for Genie+ (about half price,) for UK visitors. It may be connected with a room package. But it wouldn’t hurt to connect with other UK folks -

Just pop in and ask.

Scroll down to WDW Planning Tools, then click on WDW Chat.
