Deciding What Tickets to Buy at Disney World

You would think this would be the easiest part of planning your Disney vacation, but it’s not! You really need to put some thought into what you want out of your Disney vacation. First off, explore what ticket options are available to you. Second, get out the calculator and price out the difference. Finally decide which is the best fit for your family and/ or financial situation.

Base tickets: Allows you to visit only one park per day. This may be a good option if you are a Disney newbie or if you are staying more than 4 days. If you plan on dining in the parks, you will need to plan your itinerary accordingly.

Park Hopper: Allows you to visit more than one park per day. This option is good for experienced Disney goers that are familiar with the transit system or if you are staying less than 4 days. This option also allows more dining choices since you are not limited to one park. The additional cost is $64/ per ticket (plus tax).ticket

Water park fun & more option: Allows you to visit the two water parks, ESPN Sports Complex, Oak Trail Golf Course, Disney Quest, and two miniature golf courses. You may do more than one thing per day but each admission counts as a “visit” taken off your total. If you plan on golfing, visiting the water parks, or Disney Quest more than twice during your visit this may be worth the cost. The additional cost is $64/ per ticket (plus tax).

Park Hopper and Water park fun & more option: Allows you to visit more than one park per day plus visit the two water parks, ESPN Sports Complex, Oak Trail Golf Course, Disney Quest, and two miniature golf courses. The additional cost is $90/ per ticket (plus tax).

As you can see this can be complex! Think about what is best for your family.
