Get Into A Disney Park For $70 A Day? I’m In!

Unless you’re buying tickets for lots and lots of days, Disney parks rarely give “good” discounts. Sure, you may be able to save a few percentage points if you buy them with Target gift cards, or get them at a big box outlet. But in general, the only time Disney gives a substantial discount is when they’re working the angle to get more people into the parks, or they’re trying to pocket gate money ahead of time. Or both. I suspect both of these are coming into play for this sale, but really, who are we to look a gift horse in the mouth, right? 😉

Plus, one Magic Morning early admission* is included with each ticket. You can also add Disney MaxPass** for an additional $10 per day.

A 3-Day Ticket (1 park per day) is usually $280 (over $93 per day), so from a pricing point of view, it’s actually a pretty decent deal. Of course, regular tickets are good until December 31, 2019 and these “sale” tickets are only good for use from January through May 2019 (with a week of blockout dates, to boot), but if you have a trip planned during that time frame, it still doesn’t suck.

What’s interesting is that although there’s an emphasis on the less crowded times, the time frame for these tickets are all across the map in terms of how crowded the parks are. Here’s a general idea of crowds as per Disney Tourist Blog. The writing in BLUE has been done by me – they indicate the times when these passes will be good:

Insanely Crowded

  • Easter Week
  • Mid-March through mid-April (Spring Break season)
  • Christmas and New Year’s weeks

Very Crowded

  • President’s Day weekend
  • Memorial Day through mid-June (before Southern California Annual Passes are blocked out)
  • July through mid-August
  • During large conventions at the Anaheim Convention Center (click for schedule)
  • During Disneyland events: D23 Expo, Dapper Days, Gay Days, Half Marathon Weekend and other runDisney weekends (runDisney events are on hiatus through at least 2019)
  • Weekends during the Christmas season
  • Weekends during Halloween season

Moderately Crowded

  • Mid to Late May
  • Early June
  • Late August through Labor Day
  • Weekdays in October
  • Weekdays in December until the Friday before Christmas week

Least Crowded

  • Mid to late January
  • Early February
  • Late April
  • Early May
  • Mid-June through July 1
  • Labor Day until the start of Disneyland’s “official” Halloween season, except weekends.
  • Early November through the the official start of Christmas season (mid-November).
