Attraction Tickets Direct is now

11th December 2019


Attraction Tickets Direct, the UK’s leading attraction ticket specialist, has announced a new name and brand identity. The company, which was founded in 2002 and sells over one million tickets each year, has re-launched as

Oliver Brendon, founder and CEO, said: “When I started the business in 2002, our key message was that we delivered hard copy attraction tickets ‘direct’ to the customer – avoiding those queues in resort or having to redeem vouchers at the gate.  It also meant people could book independently of their tour operator package – which was rare at that time. 

“Some of the major theme parks and attractions, such as Walt Disney World Resort in Florida, still provide branded, tangible gate-ready tickets which our customers love to receive in the post. But, as technology has evolved, we have invested in more innovative and sustainable ways to satisfy our customers’ needs – providing instantly available, mobile friendly and gate-ready e-tickets. 

“Behind-the-scenes work on areas such as live calendar and pricing integrations with suppliers and mobile technology means we’ve expanded to become the go-to website for everything from Broadway show tickets to multi-attraction sightseeing passes in London, Paris or Rome. 

“Whilst theme park tickets remain a core part of what we do, we felt the time was right to drop the ‘direct’ from our name and move forward with our new look branding, as the UK’s leading authority in attraction tickets.”

In 2017, the company expanded to offer the best value Orlando theme park hotel and ticket packages – at the same time becoming fully bonded members of ABTA to provide customers with financial security and peace of mind.   Package bookings unlock benefits such as early park entry, free dining and express queuing.  Walt Disney World Resort packages were added first, followed by Universal Orlando Resort and the Disney partner hotels (such as the Swan and Dolphin properties). 

The unveiling of the new branding coincides with an expansion into selling hotel and ticket packages at Disneyland Paris – one step further in being the leading provider of theme park packages in the UK.

There are eight properties now on sale, all the Disneyland Paris properties plus the two Disney Nature Resorts - Disney's Davy Crockett Ranch and Les Villages Nature Paris.  Bookings are made as hotel and ticket packages and all come with Extra Magic Time and free on-site parking. 

Two nights at Disney’s Hotel Cheyenne with three-day park hopper tickets costs from £887* based on two adults and two children (aged 3-11) sharing a Woody’s Roundup standard room (January 2020 pricing).  The tickets include three days unlimited admission to both Disneyland Park and Walt Disney Studios Park with the ability to hop between parks during the day.
