You’ve decided to vacation at the Walt Disney World Resort. Fantastic!
One of the first steps to getting there is figuring out what type of Disney World park tickets you need. With lots of options and figures, this can be confusing for a first-timer.
Let’s break down the types of park tickets offered for the Walt Disney World Resort:
A basic single day, single park ticket. The base ticket will get you in to one of the four Disney theme parks for one day. The Magic Kingdom park ticket is priced slightly higher than the other three parks, though only by a few dollars.
This Disney World park ticket is a great option for someone new to the parks or for locals just going for a single day.
The next step up, this ticket option allows you to choose anywhere from 2 to 10 day packages for a single theme park per day. The Multi-Day Tickets are designed to save you money. The first two days are regularly priced (roughly $94/day), but once you hit a third day, the cost of each day is discounted. Day 3 drops to $91 a day, Day 4 to $73, and so on.
This is a good option for those looking to fully explore one theme park a day, however if you want to go from one park to another in the same day, the Park Hopper Option is for you.
Park Hopper Option
The name says it all – this option is available to add on to any Base Ticket or Multi-Day Ticket, and allows you to enjoy same-day access to any of the four WDW theme parks. For an additional $60 per ticket, it’s a great addition allowing you the freedom to really move about the World as you please.
Water Park Fun and More Option
The ultimate, big-time in Disney World park tickets.
This add-on offers a certain number of visits to other select WDW locations depending on the length of your stay. For example, a 3-day ticket allows 3 visits, a 4-day ticket allows 4 visits, and so on. It should be noted that a 1-day ticket allows 2 visits.
For each visit you can choose from the following locations:
- Disney’s Blizzard Beach Water Park
- Disney’s Typhoon Lagoon Water Park
- DisneyQuest Indoor Interactive Theme Park
- ESPN Wide World of Sports Complex
- Disney’s Oak Trail Golf Course
- Disney’s Winter Summerland Miniature Golf Course
Memory Maker is a new service that gives unlimited photo access to pictures taken by Disney’s PhotoPass Photographers. Instead of purchasing individual photos, Memory Maker gives you digital access to all PhotoPass images taken throughout the duration of your vacation.
The Memory Maker Advanced Purchase is slightly cheaper than adding it upon arrival to the parks, but it does not include photos taken within 3 days of purchase. This shouldn’t pose a problem if your tickets are purchased in advance.
