  • "Non Expiration" Ticket Option

    I didn't notice this a couple of weeks ago when Disney raised the admission prices, but it must have been rolled out then. Apparently the non-expiration option no longer is a flat $35 added to whatever Magic Your Way plan you set up.

    Now it's an added charge that varies based on how long you're staying. And it's EXPENSIVE in the extreme. The ten-day ticket price goes from $216 to $371 when you click to add the no-expiration option. That's not $35 any more; more like $155!

    It never was a flat price... Park hopping was, the non-expiring option has always cost more the longer the ticket is.

      This is why I have an annual pass, so I don't have to worry about things like that.

        A 10 day hopper using the old ticketing system was a lot more expensive than $216 or $371. And ever since they had the no-expiration add on, I don't think it was ever a flat rate anyways. Considering that each additional day is about 1 dollar more from 4 days and up (if i am remembering correctly) that works out to 21 bucks a day if you use the 10 days before they expire. And only 37 a day if you add the No-expiration option. So tell me how that is too expensive?

        I have streched my 10 day non expiration ticket through 3 trips to WDW over the past 2 years. I also have 1 day left which I am going to use in December which will be a pass that is 30 months old. I wouldn't have the ability to do that with an AP since they would expire 1 year have its initial use. Plus I would have paid more for an AP and unfortunatly I don't have the abiltiy to stay longer or as frequently to enjoy the benefit of APs.

            I prefer Code Red Mountain Dew. Coffee is too hot to carry around in Florida I think.

                Seems as if it's still less expensive than two 5-day ticket packages with expiration (or without non-expiration). That is, if you plan to return before the interest on a similar investment accumulates and overtakes the cost of the investment, but then you have to account for raised ticket prices.

                (Yes, I have had my morning caffeine fix!)

                And APs are worth some number of days. I thought I pegged out-of-state, high-end AP at about 12 parkhopper, no-expiration visits?
                Still, a lot higher than DLr's AP price, and DLr gets a lot less hotel revenue from them.
