Walt Disney World (Florida) official website price for Canadian after 20% discount is US$280 per adult (4 days pass) + 6.5% tax = US$298.20. Did anyone ever order Walt Disney World (Florida) tickets from Travelocity.ca? How much you had to pay end up if you order from Disney official website (well I know the exchange rate is different everyday, but if I have 4 adults and 2 kids, would it save me a hundred bucks to avoid the bad exchange rate with credit card company)?

It's C$323.23 per adult (4 days pass - tax included). With today rate it's about the same. However if I use my Canadian credit card to pay in USD, usually the rate is horrible.

I went through Expedia. I did the math, and with the cash-back from Ebates, I ended up saving 5.9% (3.4% cash back, and I'm counting the 2.5% forex fee savings) on $840 = $49.56, not a super saving, but enough to go through them imho.

Some have stated that they have issues when the get to the parks with the voucher. I've been to Disney over 3 times and never bought directly through the site. It's either been undercover tourist, Love orlando tickets, or this time Expedia. If Travelocity is cheaper, go for it, but don't forget Ebates! .. or your preferred cash-back site.

* I was one of the lucky ones to get in on the 30% cash back years ago through Orbitz - the good old days!

add the tickets to your my disney experience app, assign the ticket to a guest, assign the magic band to the same guest (this will be done automatically if you are staying on site and have all the same guests on your reservation) and thats it.

Any other low budget attractions worth to visit besides Hollywood and beach area in LA?

Getty Museum and Griffith Museum are both free. Santa Monica Beach Pier plus the amusement park is free (rides you pay). Hollywood IMO is over-rated... It's basically a street with a bunch of weird performers.

Be sure to pack a powerbank with your phone, you will need it.
Yes, very important considering there are only handful of FastPass terminals so you'll be using your phone a lot to schedule rides.

My wife booked 5 nights for end of Feb. $3800usd for family of 4 which includes 5 night Disney hotel, 4 day park pass, medium Disney dining plan and memory maker photo package thru a travel agent. To pay for it She bought 5k worth of Disney gift cards at the Disney store at STC. Most places limit gc purchases but Disney store did it no questions asked.

While we're down there After Disney we are doing a week on the Royal carribian cruise (thanks to rfd on that one too) going to need the vacation after Disney!
By paying with GCs, don't you miss out on any credit catd benefits you would have had if you paid with your credit card, ie trip cancellation, lost baggage, out of country insurance, accident benefits. My credit card gives me all of these benefits which is my I tend to pay with my credit card.

Not sure where you got CA$323, as both Expedia and Travelocity have been showing CA$375 for the past 2 weeks now (which is the US$298.20 Disney charges, at today's exchange rate of CA$1.25/US$1, and I have been checking twice a day. Disney's cost for Canadians with tax is US$298.20 so the only way you got it for $323, is if the US$/CA$ exchange rate was CA$1.08/US$1 which we haven't seen since Summer of 2014. Or if you got it a long time ago when there was more discount or lower priced tickets. Lucky you anyway....


Lucky you.

Just thought I'd add my experience with Expedia. Bought through them two days ago, and tonight I received an email with the 12 digit theme park confirmation numbers attached.

These are the numbers you link the tickets to your 'My Disney experience'. It was pretty painless. I thought I would have to phone Expedia, and maybe not get these numbers, (or at least have to be transferred to managers or something similar) and worst case scenario have to bring my vouchers etc, but nope.

If anyone's on the fence with Expedia, I would say go for it.

Chase US has a nice sign up promo for the Disney Visa Card. You will get a $200 statement credit after spending $500 within 90 days. This is only available via referral though. Non-referral applications only get $50 statement credit.

I have this card and used it for our Disney World vacation last year. You get a special photo opportunity exclusively for Chase Disney Visa cardholders inside Epcot. We took pictures with Mickey and Goofy with no lineups. You also get discounts on merchandise inside the park and at Disneystore.com and you will also receive exclusive dates to book the Free Dining promo not available to non cardholders. There are other perks as well. The $200 statement credit is nice and you can easily buy $500 worth of gift cards or any purchases for that matter to get the $200 statement credit.

The card is not subject to the Chase 5/24 rule but you will need to be able to qualify for a US Credit Card in order to get this. PM if you want details

I was going to pick up gift cards today but :
1. realized you're not buying in US currency on the cards, its just Canadian funds. The exchange is calculated upon day of usage. If I was getting today's exchange rate I'd be more tempted to buy.
2. found out the resort (Swan & Dolphin) does not accept these because its only a Disney 'affiliate' instead of Disney resort.

Maybe its worth it for some, but I only need $3k at most and I'm not travelling until the summer so I'm not to risk losing gift cards to save 2.5%.

Just to update. Word is that Disney World price increasing is coming Monday February 12th.

Link here

Pretty substantial increase. If right a 5-day ticket will go up $45/person. You can do the math for a family.

Also note the Canadian ticket deal ends on Saturday February 10th. If you were considering going, you might look seriously at buying tickets before the price increase

Correct! :)

I bought only for the tickets purpose, and something spend inside the park. For rest, I'll be using US CC, as I have USD funds so doesn't have to worry about Exchange or 2.5% :) Cheers!
