Walt Disney World Ticket Types

Single Day Ticket

Walt Disney World uses a date based ticketing system. This means the busiest times of year will cost more compared to slower times of year. Each calendar has its own ticket price. Whichever day you select as the start of your vacation is what your ticket will cost per day.

For example if you select to start your trip on a Monday and that ticket price is $105 and Tuesdays is $100, you will pay $105 for each day. This is also applies if your first day is cheaper.

This also means you will pay the same to visit Magic Kingdom as Hollywood Studios which was not true in the past.

If you need to move or cancel your trip Disney typically will not offer a refund for the dates you purchased. If you move to a cheaper time of year you will not be refunded. If you move to a more expensive time of year you will the difference.

Tickets you purchase a valid for only a certain window of time. A ‘No-Expiration’ option is available but at an expensive cost.

Park Hopper Option

Disney offers the option of visiting more than one park in a single day – the Park Hopper. This option allows you to visit up to all four theme parks in a single day.

The cost is about $60 over your base ticket price but the more days you add the cost incrementally drops. For example your first day may cost $169 but by your fifth day your ticket would only cost $99.

Park Hopper Plus

The Park Hopper Plus includes access to all four theme parks in a single day as well as access to the following:

  • Disney’s Blizzard Beach Water Park
  • Disney’s Typhoon Lagoon Water Park
  • ESPN Wide World of Sports Complex
  • Disney’s Oak Trail Golf Course
  • Disney’s Fantasia Gardens Miniature Golf Course
  • Disney’s Winter Summerland Miniature Golf Course

You get access to the above based on how many days you buy. If you buy a four day ticket you get four ‘vouchers’ to any of the above activities.
