Old Ticket Media: If you have an old Park Hopper with unused days on it, you may use those days, but you can no longer upgrade old ticket media if it has been used. With the removal of old-style turnstiles, most older ticket media will have to be exchanged for the new RFID-enabled media before park entry. This can only be done at Guest Relations at the Parks and Disney Springs, or at the TTC. There is no charge.

Upgrades and Exchanges: Within 14 days of your admission’s first use or before the admissions on the original tickets are used up (whichever comes first), upgrade or apply the unused value to better admission. Visit Guest Relations/Concierge before you go home.

Disney Vacation Club Discounts: Discounts of about $100 are available on Annual Passes for members of the immediate family residing in the same household.

AAA: Members (see page 11) can still expect some sort of discount (historically 5%) on some passes. You must purchase tickets directly from AAA to get the discount.

Florida Resident Discounts: It pays to live nearby.Florida Resident Seasonal Passes work like Annual Passes, but with blackout dates in busy seasons and no free parking. There are some other special deals for Florida residents only, including discounted Annual Passes. A multi-day ticket for Florida residents is available with a small, advance purchase discount.

Military Discounts: Discounts of roughly 7%–8% may be available on admission—check with your Exchange shop or MWR office. Disney’s Military Promotional Tickets in the past have offered significant discounts for active, reserve, and retired military members and their spouses on four-day passes, often up to 50% or more below regular prices. Blackout dates usually apply. Some MWR offices may need to pre-order your tickets, so check with them well in advance. Keep an ear out for special programs for active military personnel. A current promotion, available until Dec. 19, 2018, offers select U.S. military personall a 4-day Park Hopper Plus for $249+tax or a 5-day Park Hopper Plus for $289+tax. Visit https://disneyworld.disney.go.com/special-offers/, phone 407-939-4636, or visit Shades of Green online at http://www.shadesofgreen.org (see page 104) or upon arrival.

Online Ticket Brokers: These folks sell legitimate, unused passes at excellent rates: http://www.mapleleaftickets.com (800-841-2837), http://www.ticketmania.com (877-811- 9233), http://www.floridaorlandotickets.net (407-344-0030). Be wary of others hawking tickets, including eBay, craigslist, and timeshares.

Kids Play Free (Well, Some Do): Kids under 3 are admitted into the parks for free (and get a free ride if the ride allows someone that small). Anyone 10 and over is considered an adult in the eyes of the ticket booth. Admission for kids ages 3–9 cost about 20% less than adult passes. Also, the option-filled pass you buy for yourself is usually more than your child needs, especially if you use childcare programs (detailed on page 284).
