I tried calling disneyworld, and they said the only way to see if a ticket was valid was in person. Did I just get a dolt on the other end perhaps?
I called Tickets at (407) 939-1289. Is there a better number for customer service. The person I talked to was so unhelpful. Just kept saying the same thing over and over... We can only verify them in person...
I know this question was a week ago but I wanted to point out that you will not find anyone willing to give you any information on a ticket you already have over the phone. It is a policy that was put in place a few years ago in an attempt to stop the unauthorized resell of tickets.

Thanks for your response. I was going to get "Water Park Fun & More (Fun Visits) (6 day)" tickets from under cover tourist [undercovertourist.com] as the price for 5 days and 6 days only $20 difference.

For Universal, we are planning only for Universal studios (not the Island of Adventure) for the whole day.

Thanks for the suggestions..
Is there a reason you are only doing the Studios? I think a lot of the best rides are over in Islands of Adventure. Harry Potter, Spiderman, Jusassic Park, Incredible Hulk, etc are all over there. Plus for the younger kids Seuss Landing is in Islands of Adventure.

For those that are going to Orlando in the near Future(By end of April)
DO NOT stay at hotels.
You can get 1-2-3 Bedroom LUXURY Condos/Townhouses for the same price or LESS.

My personal Favorite is Vista Cay [vistacayholidays.com] (Going tomorrow for 3rd time in less than 10 months)

For example
1500 sq foot - 3 bedroom / 2 bath $111 per night + tax
2300 sq foot - 3 bedroom /2 bath $133 per night + tax

Important:
The only way to get the price-Need to go through Tripadvisor
>> Follow this link [tripadvisor.com] <<
Look for Special offer $107 per night
Click the link(there will be a popup)
Follow through the link.


For dates later than April
Right now best offers are via VistaCay website direct.
The Prepay discount is usually very good but rates are NOT posted on web yet - need to call in.

Posted AAA rates are after 4/30 (varies by dates)
1500 sq foot - 3 bedroom / 2 bath $120 per night + tax
2300 sq foot - 3 bedroom /2 bath $143 per night + tax

Looking to do a 7 day vacation in WDW at the end of October. Looking to stay in one of the deluxe resorts, ones with access to the monorail.

Any advice on getting deals for this time of the year for the park and resort? Looking to get park hopper passes, water park. Probably will stay at the Contemporary, Polynesian, or Floridian (my wife wants the access to the monorail).

Thank you.

I want to stay at Motel 6 close to Disney World it's cheaper like $40 or less. Is this a good idea? I also would like to visit some pretty tropical area like Florida Keys or West Palm Beach. Are these driving distance?

not sure what you consider driving distance. Both Sarasota (which we love) and West Palm beach are like 2-3 hours away.
