View Full Version : Ticket math question - Add a day for $16.00?
01-15-2012, 04:14 PM
I think I've got this figured properly, I can get 7 Day MYW w/ Park Hopper and Water Parks and More for $353.00 each (through DH's work, they just have a 7 and 10 day option),
Total cost for 2 adults with tax comes to $752.89.
We need 8 days.
So, if I used these tickets one day at the park, then the next day go to guest services and add one more day, I'll get charged an additional $17.04, I think??
7 Day ticket with Hopper and WP&M = $401.51 each w/ tax x2 = 803.02
8 Day ticket with Hopper and WP&M = $410.03 each w/ tax x2 = 820.06
Difference is $17.04.
Am I doing this right?
If this is correct, we'd save $13 over the price of an 8 day ticket through Undercover Tourist. If it's wrong and the difference isn't that much then I'll just buy from UT.
Are you certain the tickets can be upgraded? That would be my only concern with getting them from his place of work.

It's through Tickets at Work, which sends the same kind of tickets that I've gotten from Undercover Tourist. But now you've got me wondering.
Well, I checked and read everything on the tickets, and didn't see anything saying the tix are not upgradeable, although it doesn't say specifically that they ARE either. I read a few posts on other forums from folks who've purchased through Tix at Work and they were able to upgrade with no problems.
Still, unless I can get absolute confirmation about upgradeablility of the tickets, I think I'll pay the extra $$ and save myself some stress.

You should be able to. That sounds like the price difference I would suspect. Just make sure you use one day before upgrading, so you (should) get the retail value of the tickets rather than the purchased price. If the difference isn't much, I would probably just buy from UT (are you using the MouseSavers link for the extra savings?) just for the convenience of not having to hassle with upgrading.
I have to ask, though... Do you really need the Water Parks and More and Park Hopper options? You could save $100 per person by eliminating those options. Park Hopping is pretty easy to eliminate (unless you have a lot of ADRs that are in different parks than you're touring). I find it much more efficient to tour a single park per day.

Well, you're right, I decided to just go with Undercover Tourist - as much as I love saving money, I just didn't want to deal with the hassle or possible issues!
We love hopping, I know it's not the most efficient way to tour, but we really love MK mornings and hate crowded afternoons there - so hopping to EPCOT is really nice for us. And we're one of I think maybe 20 adults who has a great time at Disney Quest, we also spend at least two afternoons at the waterparks if the weather is warm enough, so we get our money's worth out of both the upgrades.
