Trip to Disney world just for one day. Any discount ?

Hi,

I'm in Florida right now close to Daytona. Since I'm close to Disney world, I'm just thinking to go there just for one day. All we want to do is look around the park a little bit and tak a popular photo with a Magic kingdom in the background. But then one day pass for two adults is over $200. It seems pretty stiff for couple hours of trip. I've been googling around but I haven't had any luck so far. Does anyone one know about getting discount on a day pass? Let me know thanks.

That is probably as cheap as it gets. Disney tickets are a better "value" the more days you add.

Very limited options since they price things to push people to go for longer than a day, and unfortunately they would have no way of making it cheaper for a couple hours so one day is definitely the minimum. Unless you can find something on craigslist or ebay unfortunately you're kind of stuck. Maybe if you live near a Disney Store they'll have passes you can buy a little cheaper than online. I suspect you still wouldn't be thrilled with the price though.

No, on a per day basis, it is most expensive to visit for a single day - a 4-day ticket is ~$240, 5-day ticket $250 with the current 25% Canadian discount.

Disney purposely does this apparently to price people from coming to the parks which are at capacity many times throughout the year.

So if you want a 1 to 3 day trip, it is pricy.

Apparently average family income of the people that visit Disney is $95,000USD+; basically top 20% of the population. It's not really a middle class destination anymore.

No discount for one day. Disney doesn't offer, or allow anyone to provide discount for one day pass.
get what is cheap, not what you need :lol:

How sad, but you are right about Disney. We are lucky to have good incomes, but it's too bad that they've moved so far from the way Walt originally wanted things.

long time ago..when the kids were young, the disney passes (5 day etc) were good for life..meaning you didnt have to use them all in one visit..don't know of its still the case but maybe you could buy a few day pass and save it for another year.

Tickets expire 14 days after first use; resident tickets are valid 6 months, but you need ID to buy and use one (Disney is pretty strict).

I don't think there are non-expiring tickets anymore.
