Ticket Question

If I buy a 5 day MYW ticket for $259 and when I get down there use one day, how much would it cost me to upgrade for a 6 day MYW?
Would it cost me just $10 more?
On the website it is $296.07 tax included for a 6 Day MYW from Disney.com
$285.42 for a 5 day MYW included tax....

trying to figure out the best deal... thanks...

or would it just be better to buy the discounted ticket for $284 for a 6 day MYW?

any help understanding this would be appreciated....
thanks, Wendy

Sure. That's fine.

If there's a discounted ticket that fits your needs, and it's from a reputable ticket seller
(Undercover Tourist is a very well-respected seller on these boards)
go for it!

You CAN upgrade a discounted ticket, too.
So, if you find a ticket with a nice discount, but you need a day or two more to fit your trip,
you can upgrade the ticket and still "keep the discount."

(You just need to USE the ticket at least one time to enter a Theme Park BEFORE you do the upgrade.)

Yes, that is correct. If you are planning a 6th day in the parks, that is probably the cheapest. Jut remember it takes time to complete the adding of the day.

so I would just go to the ticket booth the next day after we use our first day and ask for an upgrade?
They charge us $10 plus tax on each ticket saving me about $60 on 4 tickets...

I don't want to make a mistake...

How long does it take to add on mm1971....

1- Yes.

2- I've not calculated your numbers, but that is how the technique works, yes.

Assuming that those old tickets had the No Expiration option. If you didn't pay for the NE option, then the tickets (including the + days) expire 14 days after first use (even if you never used any of the + days).

Though I'm assuming they are pre MYW because of calling them "pluses" (the old name for what is now basically WPF&M) which I think most of them were NE.
