For what it's worth, I do believe that both SDL and TDL use date based ticketing, and both work with Klook, a 3rd party reseller that I believe offers a slight discount (at least accepts discount codes you can easily find online).Does this effectively put ticket resellers like Undercover Tourist out of business? Or do we assume that those tickets will all be sold with the "flexible dates" option built in?
For a ticket in December? Price is going up... not to mention they're about due for an across-the-board price increase regardless.Not necessarily. If they're adding $100 for the ability to have flexible dates and will obviously be charging a premium for high-demand days, lower-demand days will likely see a price reduction.
Christmas week, yes. The rest of December is some of the lowest-demand time all year.For a ticket in December? Price is going up... not to mention they're about due for an across-the-board price increase regardless.
Would you really bet on a price reduction? Would you advise someone to wait to buy their tickets? I think if they're lucky, the prices will stay the same for early Dec.I actually have no problem with the economics of this. Resort guests have been paying seasonal pricing for decades and nobody has a problem with it. This just makes planning unnecessarily complicated IMO.

Doesn't this mean you should just book for the cheapest date and adjust it in the future?Yes, you will be able to modify tickets for your Clients prior to the ticket start date. And, for the first time, your Clients will be able to modify their own tickets online or through the Disney Reservation Center prior to the ticket start date. If the ticket is changed to a higher priced date, guest will be responsible for paying the difference in price. There will be no refunds to changes to lower priced dates. If modifications are needed after the ticket start date, guests must visit any Vacation Planning window.
