If you haven’t heard, the Mommy Plus Miles household is going to Disney World! This is a trip of a lifetime for me. Less so for Reese. And Declan probably won’t remember it. Planning a trip to Disney World is a monumental task. I’ve been planning our trip for over eight months. You’ll hear more about it over the next few weeks. Today, I’m sharing my source for discount Disney World tickets: Undercover Tourist. Some people might be hesitant to trust a third-party ticket seller, but Undercover Tourist is legit, and they can save you a lot of money on park tickets.
What is Undercover Tourist?
Undercover Tourist is a third-party ticket seller. They have been selling legitimate theme park tickets since 2000. They also offer planning tips, crowd predictions, and a wait times app. Their tickets include free shipping, no hidden fees, and a 365-day refund or return policy. Taxes are included in their price so you’re never surprised when you see the total in your cart. You can also order tickets for next day pickup in Orlando if you leave it until the last minute.
Buying Discount Disney World Tickets
Undercover Tourist is an authorized retailer of discount Disney World Tickets. Disney tickets ordered from Undercover Tourist are the same RFID tickets you’d receive if you purchased directly from Disney. You can add them to your My Disney Experience Account, link them to your MagicBand, and make Fastpass+ reservations. They offer all ticket types including multi-day, park hopper, and tickets that include Disney Water Parks. When shopping Undercover Tourist, they tell you upfront what the savings is versus the Disney gate price. But remember, Undercover Tourist includes taxes in their price whereas the Disney website does not. If you aren’t saving any money over the gate price, they will tell you that too. In that case, the price is usually the same.
We purchased 6-day park hopper tickets from Undercover Tourist for our Disney World vacation. We save $59 each over the Disney gate price. They were delivered quickly and arrived in a sealed plastic bag that contained instructions on how to link our tickets to My Disney Experience. Once you open the bag or link the tickets to your My Disney Experience account, you can’t return them so make sure to verify your order first.
Buying Discount Universal Studios Orlando Tickets
Undercover Tourist is also an authorized retailer of discount Universal Orlando tickets. They also offer multi-day, park-to-park, and tickets that include the water park. However, they don’t sell Universal Express or Universal Express Unlimited tickets. These tickets allow you to skip the lines at Universal. But you can purchase the express tickets from Universal and add them to your Undercover Tourist tickets at the gate.
If you combine Universal Orlando tickets with Disney World tickets, you can find deeper discounts with Undercover Tourist. We purchased 1-day park-to-park tickets through Undercover Tourist. We didn’t save any money over the gate price, but I had an Amex offer from my American Express Platinum card which saved us some money. I’ll go into more details about Amex offers and the American Express Platinum card in another post. Our Universal tickets arrived quickly, and they were also in a sealed bag. We bought Universal Express passes separately and added them at the gate.
Buying Discount SeaWorld Orlando Tickets
Undercover Tourist is also an authorized retailer of discount SeaWorld tickets. They sell tickets to all SeaWorld attractions in Florida including SeaWorld Orlando, Busch Gardens Tampa, Aquatica Orlando Water Park, and Discovery Cove. You can purchase multi day, multi park tickets, and tickets for special experiences including dining and quick queue.
We purchased one-day tickets to SeaWorld Orlando. These were delivered electronically. The savings was only about $5, but any little bit helps when you’re planning a big trip like this. For more on our day at SeaWorld, check out SeaWorld Orlando Highlights.
Buying Other Discount Tickets
Undercover Tourist has recently expanded to include attractions in California like Universal Studios Hollywood and SeaWorld, Legoland, and San Diego Zoo and Safari Park. They also have ski lift tickets in California, Colorado, and Utah. Their ski resort matrix will help you choose the best destination for your next ski vacation.
Final Thoughts on Buying Discount Tickets with Undercover Tourist
When planning a vacation to Disney World, it’s hard to find ways to save money. Every penny saved is one more you can spend on churros or Mickey head ice cream bars. Undercover Tourist is a trustworthy source for discount Disney World tickets, discount Universal Orlando tickets, and discount SeaWorld tickets. I highly recommend you check them out when you start planning a Disney World vacation.
