Disney World is also offering the free dining plan package if on certain dates if that works better for some.
Don't think there is "free" dining going on at Disney World right now. There is a package deal, Play, Dine, Stay, and Save. What it means is you pay rack rate for hotel, full price on tickets (Canadian ticket offer wouldn't be valid), and then you get something like 40% off the dining plan (discount varies depending on whether you are staying at a Value, Moderate, or Deluxe resort). Deal is available for stays January 1, 2018 to March 10, 2018.

The typical "free" dining package historically is released at the end of April and covers dates in the fall

Currently holding off in the hope of Black Friday deal for Sea World and Busch Gardens
A quick google will show results of previous years Blue Friday promotions - A lot of "BOGO 50% off" which may work out for you depending on group make-up and plans.
Another option is discount codes on Ebay - we've used these before with success for SW, BG & Legoland but its obviously taking a chance

Universal is a tough one - You can maybe shave $10 of ticket price by shopping around but a good deal is hard to find.
We went down the route of staying onsite with front of line passes (which can be crazy $$$) and early entry included.
They do have a Canadian resident offer but dont such much savings over regular pricing plus you need to stay 5+ days
Did some googling, looks like Sea World has BOGO 50% Single day admission so exactly what we need, thank you!
As for Universal, I don't see much savings even with corporate discounts which are targeted for 2-day+ admissions anyway. Guess we'll have to buy it at regular prices

Last year this time the discounted Canadian WDW tickets were USD $300 for 10 days, now it's USD $344 for 9 days. And the WDL tickets expire on January 2019 which gives you basically one year to use them.

It's a 20% discount this time (versus 25% before) but it's the best price for tickets at the moment and there may not be better between now and when these expire. If you know you're going between now and then it's not a bad idea to take advantage of this deal.

Agree with Uglyguy.

More on point, and I am not sure how old your kids are, but since you say "kids", one must theoretically be at least 1. I was in probably a similar situation as you, and I was looking into bringing my son to WDW for his first bday. Wifey had her doubts but all in all, the trip was worth it. We went to WDW and stayed at the Swan (I think).

If you do the research about bringing a 1/2/3 year old to Disney, more parents would encourage taking a LO to Disney than not. At least one of the posters on another forum/website said the key on a trip like that is to see Disney through your kids' eyes, not yours... and I could not agree more. Just the look of my son observing all the lights/parades/characters was worth the trip alone.

You can also buy this now, and use this two years later.
My son is a bit over two so I think he's ready to go for the Disney experience and would have the time of his life. My daughter is just one month so I think she'll be a bit too young to go next year. we plan on taking them when they are 4 and 2. I'm always weary about buying things that far in advance although it would likely translate to savings.

I am refunding my Disney tickets today and buy new ones with this deal. =)
And thank you for the information... I just signed up for the Sea World Blue Friday newsletter and will wait for the promo. ^^

Well these tickets have to be used by December 2018 according to the OP. So these tickets wouldn't do any good for you

Would've had to have bought the Canadian ticket deal from earlier this year which had no expiry date. I'm hoping we keep seeing more special offers for Canadian residents in the future.

for those looking for just 1 day @ Universal Studios in value season (includes spring 2018), you may get a 2-park for 110US (105US for 3-9yo) on CAA.
check the calendar for value periods http://universalticketcalendar.com/
Did you have a special link for those tickets? This is what I'm seeing

post mentioned CAA, so I guess you gotta be a CAA memeber and buy tickets through them in order to get the discount....
