What Kind of Ticket to Buy?

Planning a Trip ⇒ What Kind of Ticket to Buy?

Disney’s ticketing system could be a little overwhelming.  We recommend determining how many days you want to spend in the Disney Parks and purchase the ticket that best fits your needs.

Multi-Day Tickets

Disney offers multi-day tickets from 1 day in length to 10 days.  The value of these tickets increases as you purchase more days.  For example, a two-day base ticket costs $109 per day while a ten-day base ticket costs $47 per day.

Multi-day tickets are also subject to dynamic demand-based pricing based on the time of year and even day of the week.  Check the Walt Disney World website for ticket prices on the dates you are considering.

Each ticket also has the option to add on the park hopper option, enabling guests to visit more than one theme park in the same day.  If you select the park hopper options, you’ll also have the option of adding the Park Hopper Plus Option.  This also gives you the ability to visit either Typhoon Lagoon, Blizzard Beach, ESPN Wide World of Sports, Disney’s Oak Trail Golf Course, Fantasia Gardens Miniature Golf, and Winter Summerland Miniature Golf.  You’re given the ability to visit one of these for each day you’ve purchased tickets.  Said differently, if you bought a five-day ticket you would get five visits to any of the above.  The exception is that if you purchase a one day ticket and added the Park Hopper Plus Option, you would get two visits to the Water Parks, Golf Courses, or ESPN Wide World of Sports.

Finally, the last upgrade that you can add to your ticket is the Memory Maker. The Memory Maker add-on gives you the ability to download all of the pictures that Disney Photopass Photographers take of you in the parks.  This includes on-ride photos and some dining experience photos.
