Here we go again! Like last year, again this year I have decided to gather all Sitecore Symposium 2019 discounts in one place.

So if you do not want to lose your time on searching best deals – stay with me on my blog and just add this page to favorites!

If you want to check how I was updating the post last year – click a link at the end of this post.

Use my discount code

You will receive an additional 100$ discount if you decide to use my unique discount code.

Use this link or just copy&paste code “LSKOWRONSKI” during your registration: https://sitecoresymposium2019.smarteventscloud.com/portal/registration/LSKOWRONSKI

Buy tickets sooner

It is nothing new – if you buy tickets sooner you will get a better price. This year Sitecore has prepared four price levels:

  • Super early: 1195$ (ends 4th June)
  • Early bird: 1295$ (5th June – 16th August)
  • Advanced: 1595$ (16th August – 31 October)
  • Regular: 1795$ (1th November – 4th November)

It means that if you will buy tickets now  you will get 
200$ discount ! In total 300$ with my discount code.

If you are MVP you should have own discount code – check your mailbox for email or community forum in MVP section.

Registration page is here: https://symposium.sitecore.com/registration

Buy tickets in a group

If you are coming with the team or you just want to organize with friends you can buy tickets together in a bigger group.

Currently, there are two levels of discount available:

  • Groups of 5-9 receive $75 off current pricing
  • Groups of 10+ receive $100 off current price

Remember that: Tickets must be purchased together and cannot be combined with additional discounts.

To use that discount you have to start a registration process as for the single person and then select group ticket:

Theme park discounts

This year Sitecore prepared also special theme park discounts for attendees of Sitecore SYM. Check all details here: https://www.mydisneygroup.com/sitecore2019

Tickets with special deals are available in the following prices (you get also few interesting privileges which are usually additionally paid):

If you decided to buy those tickets without Sitecore’s deal – you would pay around 50-60$ more.  I checked that on a standard purchase page (unfortunately because of my location I have different currency – do not have time to play with VPN ;))

Looks like a good deal for someone who wants to visit Disney Theme Parks!

Save time with Disney Resorts benefits

If you are going to stay in Swan or Dolphin you can enjoy special deals which will save your time – if you decide to visit Walt Disney Wolrd.

On the list of benefits you will find:

  • FastPass++ reservation up to 60 days in advance
  • Extra hours benefit – Walt Disney World will be open for you before and after normal working hours
  • Possibility to order Disney tickets in advance
  • and more….

Check all benefits here: https://www.swandolphin.com/aboutus/benefits.html

Swan and Dolphin “deal”

On Sitecore SYM website you can find a link to book hotel: https://www.swandolphin.com/groupres/SI3242/

From what I checked you will not save money on this but at least Sitecore prepared enough space for attendees. So use this link to book your room or choose a different hotel because there is not any other option to reserve a room in Swan and Dolphin resort in other booking systems.

Do not expect that other hotels will be much cheaper – in the time when Sitecore SYM will be held, Orlando will be visited by many different and bigger events.

At the end

Hopefully gathered information from this post will let you save some bucks to spend them in Orlando!
