Free Disney World ticket on your birthday

If you are headed to Walt Disney theme parks in Florida or California next year, you might want to time it to the anniversary of your birth.

The Sun's travel blogger Michelle Deal-Zimmerman points us to this cheap travel tip: you can get a free ticket to Walt Disney World on your birthday. Or Disneyland, if you prefer the Left Coast.

It's all part of a campaign to get more people to celebrate birthdays and weddings at Disney parks, according to this Orlando Sentinel story.

The offer is worth $75 (the cost of a single day pass) and is valid for anyone over the age of 3 with valid proof of age.

It won't get you a discount on multi-day Disney passes, but you can still get a birthday gift if you choose that option ... 

according to the free birthday admission offer FAQ page instead of free admission, you could get:

  • A birthday fun card in an amount equal to the price of a 1-day Magic Your Way base ticket for you to use on your birthday for merchandise, recreation or fun activities at select participating locations at Walt Disney World® Resort, valid only on the birthday; or
  • A special birthday FASTPASS® badge for certain attractions at the Theme Park you visit on your birthday, for you and up to five members of your party; or
  • A 1-day Magic Your Way base ticket for you to use any time until your next birthday.

A two-day pass is $149 ... so if you were to go on the day of your birthday, and bought a two-day ticket, they'd give you a gift card to spend in the park on your birthday that was worth the value of a one-day ticket.

Obviously, as Consumerist points out, the Walt Disney Co. will still bring in some cash selling tickets to whoever you bring with you and for any meals and toys you buy while there.  But if you were headed in that direction anyway, might be worth it to consider the possibilities.
