It’s a New Year and a new time to plan a trip to Disney!
This month let’s talk about ticket choices. They are vast, to say the least!
It ranges from one day tickets all the way up to annual passes and everything in between. And now there is seasonal pricing to look at as well! Determining what is best for you can be very difficult.
Also, if you go for one day it is a different price whether you go to Magic Kingdom® (more expensive) or the other 3 parks. I am sure I have your head spinning now.
Park Hopper is the next option you can add once you determine how many days you need/want. Park Hopper allows you to go from one park to another in the same day. FYI you can NOT use a day of park ticket to go to one park in morning and another park day ticket in the evening YOU MUST BUY A PARK HOPPER to do this.
You can also add the Water Park Fun and more option. This includes water park tickets, entrance into ESPN Wide World of Sports Complex, Disney’s Oak Trail Golf Course (one round free), and free miniature golf round at both Fantasia and Winter Summerland BEFORE 4 PM.
REMEMBER each option you add increases your price ticket. Also, REMEMBER you can’t do everything!!
I usually will recommend to have park tickets for each day you will be there. The reason is that it gives you choices. With that being said, are you planning to do other non-Disney attractions (Universal, Sea World, Busch Gardens, Outlet shopping, etc.) then you need to factor that in. Here is an example of why I suggest buying a ticket for each day.
Approx. cost for 6 day ticket (base) is $366.96 making it $61.16/day Approx. cost for 4-day ticket (base) is $344.00 making it $86.00/day By this example, you can see how small a difference it is to have a ticket for each day you are there. The more days, the less cost per day. So, if you go in for an evening for dinner and fireworks or a morning for your favorites and fastpass, you won’t feel you are losing out as the cost per day to about half.
