If you want to save some money on a trip to Disneyland, and don't mind going on a day that the park is overflowing with goth enthusiasts, then Bat Day is for you. This year's convention runs May 16-29, 2012, and you can buy group tickets at their rate by purchasing online through the previous link. Please keep in mind that the park is not reserved for this event, it is just an annual event opportunity for people to express themselves in the way they feel most comfortable, no matter how odd the rest of us might think it is. My sister accidently visited the park on this day a couple of years ago with her grandchildren, and they were terrified. But if you go, knowing in advance what to expect, you will just be able to enjoy your day and perhaps learn that underneath all that creative dressing is a person who also just wants to have fun!
A one day park hopper ticket normally costs $105.00, but through this link you can purchase them for $91.00. That's a 13% savings!
Other discounts available on the Disney Website include:
- Souther California resident discount. From now through June 1, 2012, buy a 2-Day, 1-Park per Day Disneyland Resort ticket for just $99 and pick which park you want to visit each day! The only drawback is you can only visit one park per day, you can't hop back and forth. You might also want to check which rides are closed for maintenance during this time period so that you are not dissappointed when you arrive.
- Military Discount. Buy a 3-Day Park Hopper ticket for just $99 each, through September 28, 2012. That's a savings of 55%* off the ticket booth price!
- 3-Day Park Hopper tickets may be purchased at participating U.S. military sales outlets by any eligible U.S. military personnel or their spouse for just $99. There is a 6 ticket limit during any single week of the promotion. No more than 12 tickets may be purchased, activated and/or used by any eligible U.S. military personnel or spouse during the life of this promotion.
Craig's List. Check with companies that buy 2 & 3 day passes but sell them as individual tickets. It's worth a try, right?
To save more money on your visit, pack some food, water and snacks or take a cooler in your car and leave the park to have your own personal tailgate party. Who says a trip to the Magic Kingdom has to break the bank?!
