Reducing the Price of Admission

The current price for a ticket to Disney World Paris is roughly £75, which is a lot to spend on a ticket to a theme park. This is an outrageous price, but only if you agree to pay that much. Use the following strategies as a way to lower the cost of admission.

Buy Tickets Online

Do not wait to get your tickets to the park on the day you arrive. Take the time to purchase your tickets online before you leave. Most theme parks provide discounted tickets for their park on the Internet. In addition, you will be rewarded by gaining entry to the park quicker.

How much can you expect to save on theme park tickets online? More than you would think. Currently, the price for a day pass to Disney Land Paris is roughly £20 cheaper than the gate price. This is not unusual as many theme parks offer special online rates as they like to have an idea of the number of people visiting the theme park so they can prepare.

Promotional Offers

Fizzy drinks, fast-food restaurants, and supermarkets all have something in common, which is discounted offers on theme park admissions. These are only a few of the companies that offer discount coupons for theme parks. The next time you buy a product pay attention to the packaging, and you may just find a coupon for admission into the park. These offers vary, but you could save more than 50% on entry. At the very least, you should expect to find free entry for children.Ways to Get Discounts on Theme Park Tickets

Local Deals

Do you live in the same area as a theme park? If you do, you will be happy to know that many of the theme parks will offer a special rate just for locals. The savings will vary based on the theme park. Did you know, for example, that in Virginia, residents can purchase a Fun Card for Busch Gardens that will allow them to use the park in the spring and summer for the low price of a one day admission?

Multi-Day Passes

One of the best ways to save money on theme park tickets is to buy passes for more than one day. If you plan on spending your entire holiday at the theme park, buying multiple day passes can save you a great deal on admission. For example, at Disney World Paris, the cost of a one day pass is £75. However, for £144 you can purchase a four day pass, dropping the ticket substantially. Many theme parks will allow you to add a day for a low price or even half the price of the first day.

Work the Discounts

If you are retired, make sure that you ask for the discounted rates that are offered. You may also get lower prices if you are signed up to certain companies like the RAC or AA. These are not the only ways to get discounts on ticket prices. Most parks will offer savings to members of the military and their families as well as to veterans.

If you are travelling in a large group, make sure to look into group discounts. Many theme parks will offer group discount rates of up to 40% if your group is over 20. Grab some friends and head to a theme park together and enjoy great savings.

If you are planning on a long stay that includes a hotel look into holiday packages. There are many great package deals available that will include your hotel room and your theme park tickets. Most theme parks will partner with the nearby hotels to offer tourists a holiday package that is all inclusive. Most of the time these bundled packages will be much cheaper than buying the hotel and theme park admission tickets separately. Some of the packages will actually include breakfast and dinner, which means you will save on food as you only need to buy lunch at the park. Make sure to consider a car hire as well to save even more money on your holiday.

Some parks will offer a second day free promotion. Take advantage of this and spend an extra day at the theme park for the cost of one. There are some restrictions to this promotion in some cases, such as your first day must start after five in the evening. It is important that you read all terms carefully to ensure you are not left disappointed.

Season Passes

If you live near a theme park, chances are that you are going to visit it more than once. Consider purchasing a season pass to the park. Calculate how many times you would need to visit the park in order to pay for the season pass and if the number of times you plan to visit is at least that many a season pass is worth it. Additionally, you may be able to save even more as most season passes will include free parking as well as a host of other benefits such as early entrance times, member only events, and discounts in the gift shop.

If considering a season pass, most theme parks will allow you to purchase your one day ticket into a season pass for the difference in price. This is the perfect solution if you want to try the park out before committing to coming back again.

There are many great ways to save on the admission to theme parks if you take the time to search for them. If you plan your holiday out ahead of time, buy your tickets online and consider a package deal and your theme park holiday can become quite affordable.
