Deal Details

DEAL IS "DEAD"--REBATE DOWN TO 4%
At 4% off, you can probably do better elsewhere.


Rare deal on Disney World & Disneyland tickets & Annual Passes--20% Rebate
(MUST use a popular rebates site to click through to Orbitz.

Separate Disney Resort room deal info added, see 2/24 morning update & bottom of this post.


Orbitz is also offering 2 extra free days on a 3 Day WDW Magic Your Way ticket (with or without Park Hopper and/or Water Park options) and 1 extra free day on 3-4 day DL Park Hoppers.

Disney per day prices drop significantly after the 3rd day. So, the free days are nice but aren't a huge extra deal. For example, it represents approximately an extra $30 savings per ticket on a full price WDW 5 day ticket.

For lots more info, check this thread on DIS Boards:
http://www.disboards.com/showthre...?t=3237270

There's a lot there but, keep in mind that in general, DIS boards gets a lot of people who don't read threads before asking questions, dumb/repeat questions & people who generally need a lot of hand holding.

Some of the more pertinent details I came across during a quick scan:
  • You will get a voucher that you exchange at the parks for your actual tickets.
  • As always with Disney tickets, the FULL REGULAR/RETAIL PRICE of the tickets (not what you are actually paying/net after the rebate) can be applied to a longer length ticket or Annual Pass at the park ticket windows. So, this is an opportunity to get a deal on an AP or a deal on a longer length ticket. But, YOU MUST use at least one day of that ticket for park admission. You CANNOT buy one of these discounted tickets & then apply it to an AP without visiting the parks for at least 1 day.
  • Orbitz asks the dates when you are traveling when making the purchase, not sure how that impacts you. Read that DIS thread.
  • The rebate site may pay you on the next quarterly pay cycle or they may wait until the end of the quarter when you actually pick up the tickets at the park, which could be months from now. People have had both experiences when this deal was offered in the past.

UPDATE (2/23) ON HOW TO LINK ORBITZ TICKETS TO WDW RESERVATION:
Tickets CAN be added to your Disney Hotel reservation so you can utilize the new FastPass+ ride reservation system via the My Disney Experience site/app in advance of your trip.

From DIS:

Woohoooooo....my tickets linked!!!! I am so excited!!!!!

1. So I called Orbitz at this number 1-888-656-4546.
2. Got through and they asked for my Orbitz Record Locator #. That number is at the top of the email confirmation you got from Orbitz.
3. I gave it to the guy, he confirmed my zip and then asked what he could do.
4. I asked for my Disney Magic Code. He gave me the Disney Magic Code. It was letters followed by numbers.
5. I went onto www.disneyworld.com, signed in and put that number in on the voucher for tickets area.
6. A screen popped up asking me to assign a ticket to each user. I assigned a ticket to each user.
7. Received a confirmation email that my tickets are linked. I am beyond, beyond excited that this worked.

Thanks everyone for the help. Hopefully this helps someone else out too!!.
Quote :
I ordered my tickets Thursday night. I e-mailed Orbitz for the My Magic code, and they gave me the will call confirmation number from my purchase confirmation e-mail, which didn't work to link the tickets. I called them, and asked again, and they gave me a code that was 4 letters followed by 8 numbers. That worked to link all of the tickets to my Disney account, and then I was able to assign them to people.

FWIW, I put June 2014 dates on my purchase with Orbitz, but that didn't make any difference. The tickets linked up just fine.


Also, Disney snuck in a price increase that took place effective 2/23
http://www.orlandosentinel.com/ne...1646.story

Orbitz has not (or at least not yet) matched the increases so, the deals have gotten even better.

An adult 3 day+2 free day ticket is $280.09 (incl tax) at Orbitz (before your 20% rebate)
A 5 day ticket is $323.76 (incl tax) on the WDW website or at the parks ticket windows.

Since there are so many combinations & options on WDW tickets, I suggest you look up WDW ticket prices on their website:
https://disneyworld.disney.go.com/tickets/

Keep in mind that WDW doesn't include tax in the price when selecting the ticket but it does show up in the top right corner in the "Current Selection"/shopping cart .

The mods have been gracious enough to let this thread go despite it being in violation of SD rules. Can we please stop mentioning the rebate website through creative means of posting their URL?

Also, there is a bunch of info in this thread & especially in the DIS thread. Your question likely has already been answered. PLEASE SPEND A FEW MINUTES & READ.

Update #2 (Sunday Night 2/23), From "Red Ginger":
I wanted to update everyone, that I e-mailed Orbitz yesterday for the "MyMagic+ Code", since the will call code included in the confirmation e-mail did not work on MyDisneyExperience. The MyMagic+ code they sent worked perfectly. All 3 of my tickets showed up and I was able to link each ticket to each member of my family. Also after you link them, it says the tickets do not expire until 2030, so go ahead and stock up! You can also re-assign them.

"05-Day Magic Your Way Ticket with Park Hopper Option
Expires: December 31, 2030Admission: 5 days left "

Update #3 (Monday 2/24 8am Eastern)
As of now, deal is still on.

Need a deal on a Disney World Resort room?

Expedia's UK website has all sorts of huge discounts on Disney's hotels

See this DIS Thread http://www.disboards.com/showthre...?t=3222577

Your credit card may charge an international transaction fee so consult the thread for a list of cards that don't have a fee & tons of other info regarding all the in's & out's of this offer.

I checked dates I was thinking of traveling & saw Moderate Level Disney Resorts about $50/night cheaper than booking direct w Disney.

If you are going to WDW Orlando, Orbitz is still the best option.


For example for 5 days of Park Base and Water Park (6 adults + 1 kid) these are the compared prices:
Orbitz: $2,373.92
Undercover Tourist: $ 2541.65
Disney website: $2,692.32
Also...if the rebate really works 4% for this example is about $100..worth the try if you need the tickets.


Thanks to Compras for info:

This is a very good deal.

The one important thing to remember if you're going to be staying at a Disney resort: since you won't get your hands on your Disney tickets until you get to the park and exchange your voucher, you won't be able to take advantage of booking your Fastpass+ rides up to 60 days in advance. You need your ticket# in advance to do that. If you're willing to forego that luxury, then this is sweet. Otherwise stick to Undercover Tourist [undercovertourist.com].

Great deal for those who need multiple days. Disney tickets never get discounted anymore.

I only need a 1-Day hopper so nothing for me.

This should be valid for other theme parks as well, such as Universal. Correct? Thanks in advance!

I got in on this. Just buying the PH's from Orbitz alone on their "Buy 3, get 2 free" saves you money even over the Mousesaver's newsletter discount prices from what I can see (well, no actual confirmation since I don't have the link handy).

You certainly save money over the price Disney will charge you through their site.

The 20% back is just sweet, sweet, gravy. Very slick. You will not find cheaper Disney tickets than this, unless you are an employee or maybe a veteran.

FYI, I am reading through the Dis Boards post on this and have confirmation from at least one user that the voucher can be linked so you can pre-book your FastPass+ ressies. Even if you can't, I'm not sure I see that as a big enough deal to back out of this deal. On top of my up front savings, I should be getting ~$265 back from urlhasbeenblocked.

Thanks for the heads-up! Slick deal!

When getting the 5-day ticket deal, and if I only use 3 or 4 of the tickets, do the remaining ticket(s) expire ?

Tickets expire after 14 days of non use.

Unless you pay for no expiration option, which is a huge waste of money

This is a solid deal if you don't mind dealing with the vouchers. What would hold me back is my preferred way of having tickets in hand. Time is definitely money when in Disney and even the few minutes you may spend exchanging the vouchers could cost you time in the long run. And if there is a decent line for the exchange you could realistically spent 45 minutes getting your tix. As far a the Fastpass + it is much easier if you just have the tix. No phone calls needed. Still a very solid deal with the cash back, really depends on the season you go, if you plan on upgrading these tickets, and several other factors...mainly time related.

If you get there early in the morning. IE 30mins before the parks open, you will typically not encounter much of a wait.

There are work arounds, but this isn't that terrible. We just returned from Disney and 90% of the FastPass+ options we chose online we ended up changing on the fly while touring the parks. Only one time I wasn't able to get the time I wanted and that was BTMR and I didn't try to change that FastPass until around 8pm so it was understandable why they had no other times available. But all the other rides I changed (including Soarin' (on two different days) I was able to get the time slots for the attractions I wanted.

I know there have been a lot of complaints with the new FastPass+ system, but it couldn't have worked better for our situation.

If you are familiar with this deal, can you help decipher something for me?

I'm trying to use this to purchase 2 adult tickets, that I would eventually like to convert into an Florida Resident annual pass.
In order to get the best price on the annual passes, do I just buy the largest ticket available through the Orbitz deals, then ask to upgrade at the park?

I am pretty sure that is how you would do it. I think you want to maximizing the 20% off amount (obviously without going over the FULL RETAIL price of the Florida AP) & then apply it to the AP. Definitely read that DIS thread to see if there are any special circumstances with a Florida Resident discounted AP vs a Full Price AP. But this is how a regular AP would be done.
