    Don't forget the St Paul Winter Carnival! It kicks off on January 27th. This weekend, there will be ice carving competition, snow sculpting, snow plow competition, skiing, ice fishing, orchid display (indoors, of course), speed skating and regular ice skating, and lots more. Mostly free!

    Our favorite: the King Boreas Grand Day parade, on January 29th. (Moon glow pedestrian parade is the night before.)

    Can anyone help here. I go to the advance or promotion ticket selection and prices range from $10 to $65 and then you put in that code Z4926 and you get to purchase tickets. However even the $10 ticket selection ends up being $16.34 per ticket after all their fees. Is this the deal that you are mentioning or am I doing something wrong. I'd like to get the best tickets possible for the $11 dollars but I'm not seeing how to do this. The code is just letting you buy those tickets for the said price but I'm not seeing much of a deal. If you could help…that would be great! Thanks!

    Agreed. How is this Disney code supposed to work? I keep trying and it does not give me special itckets at a special rate with this code. I would really like to order these before Sunday!

  4. says

    OK, ladies – here's what I could figure out with the discount code, which is to say, nothing. All I have for information is the information in the email. There is a spot for "Opening Night Discount Tickets" that gives you the best possible seats for $10.00 each (+ taxes and fees, of course). Looks like it works out to about $16.64, as Kerri said. I'm not sure if this is a good deal or not; I was just passing along information that was sent to me. Sorry for the confusion!

      Thanks! Just got 4 $20 tickets for $11 each plus all their wonderful fees. But thank you for letting us know. It's a $36 savings and the seats are on the lower level. Very nice. Thanks for the tip!

    I purchased some tonight for $11 each and I didn't use the code. When you click the link to purchase the tickets, there is an advanced ticket purchase box which allows you to buy tickets for $11, and they had some for $10! Can't wait to take my little princess!

    I FOUND A BETTER DEAL FOR THE DISNEY TICKETS!!!!!! Do I have your attention yet?

    I spent what seemed like hours trying to fugure this out to and all I got were tickets for 65$! O-O! So, this is what I came up with.

    I went to http://www.disneyoniceoffer.com (through Kraft cheese website), yes there's a commercial for this. You use a code (which according to my packages it's "KRAFT", fill out a form for how many tickets you want, PRINT the form and mail it in, along with your wrappers, and your 10$ a seat tickets will be at will call waiting for you! You need 1 kraft cheese single specially marked wrapper per 2 tickets you want to purchase. The form is easy, it will ask you how many tickets per how many wrappers you have to send in. And yes, as long as you ask for all the tickets at the same time you will get them sitting together! Now if you only have 1 wrapper but want 4 tickets, the 3rd & 4th tickets are FULL price. This is explained indetail at the site!! I am sending in for 4 tickets, with 2 wrappers and my total is $51.00! Taxes and service charges included. The ONLY thing I won't know is where the seats are until that night and honestly I don't care where we sit, tickets for 10$ a seat, it's worth it! My kids are going to love it. Hope this all makes sense.
