Great news for all Canadian Disney fans! The moment you have been waiting for has finally arrived and it’s even better than we imagined.
The Canadian Resident Ticket offer is back!!!
As of September 25th, 2019, Canadians can purchase tickets for both Walt Disney World and Disneyland and receive a savings of 20% off the standard ticket price.
Needless to say, we’re thrilled to see Disney release this offer again this year as it makes planning a trip to either Walt Disney World or Disneyland a little more affordable.
The number one thing to keep in mind with these tickets (like last year), is the fact that you do need proof of Canadian residency. In years past, this meant activating your tickets at guest relations located at any of the four theme parks or Disney Springs. Any adult needs their proof (usually a Passport) before the offer will be validated. Also, as it was with previous years, there are details to keep in mind for each offer, so we’ll dive into the fine print here:
Walt Disney World
At Walt Disney World, any park ticket that is 4-days or longer (1-Park-Per-Day, Park Hopper or Park Hopper Plus) is eligible for the 20% savings.
Guests can purchase tickets through February 7th, 2020 and the ticket start date must be on or before December 31st, 2020. The offer is not available at the Walt Disney World Resort theme park ticket windows, so they must be purchased ahead of time or added to a resort package.
At Disneyland, any 1-Park ticket or Park Hopper ticket that is 3-days or longer is also eligible for 20% savings!
Guests can purchase their Disneyland tickets through February 16th, 2020 and prior to travel to the Disneyland Resort. Again, the offer is not available at the Disneyland Resort Main Entrance ticket booths, so purchase them ahead of time to take advantage of the savings.
The Canadian Resident ticket offer has been a game changer in the past few years. It’s important to remember that they can be bought outright but are non-refundable. They can also be added to a non-discounted vacation package for the specified travel dates. But, this means that anyone who is planning a last minute trip for 2019 can also reap the benefits of the 20% savings. If you’re not planning a last minute jet-set to either Disneyland or Walt Disney World for 2019, then 2020 is also an excellent year to take advantage of the offer.
As an example, if you were planning on purchasing 3-day tickets to Walt Disney World, it’s actually less expensive to purchase the 4-day Canadian Resident tickets! Plan an extra day, or visit a park on your travel day. Either way, you’re coming out ahead. 20% may not seem like much, but it can definitely make a difference to the bottom line of your vacation. Especially for families, the savings can really add up (which just gives you more leeway to purchase extra souvenirs to take home).
This is also a great way to make sure you get a chance to visit Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge. With “Rise of the Resistance” opening December 5th at Walt Disney World and January 17th at Disneyland, we highly recommend using the Canadian Resident Ticket offer to make sure you get down to see this brand new land and experience all that Batuu has to offer!
