Walt Disney World Park Tickets

One of the main components of a Walt Disney World vacation package, are theme park tickets. Choosing the right ticket type for your vacation can be ovewhelming. Understanding what type of experience each ticket offers, helps to make the decision making much easier.

Base ticket = you each may visit 1 park per day ( you may enter and exit that same park more than once in the same day).

Park hopper ticket = you may “hop” to and from different parks within the same day.

With base tickets and park hopper ticket options, you can enter the 4 major theme parks included are Magic Kingdom, Animal Kingdom, Epcot, and Hollywood Studios.

Park Hopper Plus = provides the option of admission to Disney’s Blizzard Beach water park, Disney’s Typhoon Lagoon water park, Disney’s Fantasia Gardens Miniature Golf Course, Disney’s Winter Summerland Miniature Golf Course, a round of golf at Disney’s 9-hole Oak Trail Golf Course, or ESPN Wide World of Sports Complex. You can also Park hop at the four theme parks as much as you wish through the length of the ticket, but the number of visits to the additional locations (like the miniature golf courses and water parks) will be the same number of days on your park ticket. For example, if you have a 5-day ticket, you can visit the extra locations 5 times during your stay.

With a Walt Disney World vacation package, you can choose between a 2-day and 10-day ticket length. Tickets are valid for length of vacation package and cannot be transferred to different guests. All guests on your resort reservation must choose the same ticket type and length.

Ticket Only Options; (not part of a Walt Disney World vacation package)

You can opt for ticket only packages as well as 1-day water park admission tickets.  **All stand alone ticket purchases are managed on a date based system and valid for various lengths of time. There are also special event tickets for seasonal events such as Mickey’s Not So Scary Halloween Party that runs select evenings in September and October,  and Mickey’s Very Merry Christmas Party that is held select evenings in November and December! See our posts on those special events in detail!
