News Disney to launch new Vacation Planning site to help guests with date-based tickets

Ah, so more of a headache for guests (and travel agents... assuming such animals still exist) rather than a programming/site/accounting problem. It sure sounds like they added the caveat about 'changing tickets could cost you more if the price go up and if the price goes down you won't get getting a refund' to cover some of that. I'm thinking it's more like airline tickets... whose prices are in flux on a daily basis, or so it seems.
Well you see here how some people are overwhelmed by the complexity of the whole process, the last thing WDW needs (for now) are constantly fluctuating prices.

But, it could happen, even if unwise at this stage of introducing surge pricing.

Oh, definitely. I wouldn't think they'd be quite as bad as the airlines, but I could see them changing the pricing without warning the day before announcing the opening of SW:GE. They could also massage prices a little on a quarterly or monthly basis, and again do it without warning.

I can see it working for them if they adjust the (daily) price upwards as tickets sell (for that day) in blocks of 5,000 10,000 etc. Anyone that had already purchased (for that date) is "locked in" at the price they've already paid.
