Original Post:

For those of you who are keeping their fingers crossed that Disney announces a free dining package for 2016, I possibly have some good news. Earlier this week, Disney rolled out a new free dining promotion, discount tickets + $200 Disney Gift Card promotion available in the UK only for dates in early 2017. For those of you who are in the UK – congrats!  I know that doesn’t do much for most of us here in the US but I would take it as a sign of good news that Disney is still actively rolling out free dining promotions.

Luckily we only saw an across the board price increase in the multi-day park tickets, not the seasonal pricing used for single day tickets. Here at Frugal Mouse we always shed a tear every time Disney raises prices on us. Let’s take a look at the new prices and some strategies to save some money on park tickets. [click to continue…]

Why You Should Purchase Your Disney Park Tickets Now

Epcot Spaceship Earth Night

Disney just announced this past Sunday that park tickets for Disneyland would be increased effective immediately. Prices went up across the board from single day tickets, park hoppers and even annual passes on average about 10%. This price hike comes right on schedule just before the busy summer season hits to take in that extra revenue for all of the summer visitors that will be purchasing park tickets.
