In 2005, Disney World announced a new ticket plan called "Magic Your Way" allowing guests to create their own ticket. Base-priced Magic Your Way tickets are tailored to length of stay and interests, with add-on options available. Multi-day tickets save money by reducing the cost-per-day of admission to Disney World's theme parks, while options add additional costs to each ticket.
Creating a custom ticket is easy, just choose the number of days needed on a base ticket (that allows a visit to one theme park each day) and then select from a menu of ticket options that includes: Park Hopper Option, Water Park Fun & More or No Expiration Option. Confused? Use the glossary below to determine what options best suit your vacation needs:
One-Day - Valid for admission to one park only – Magic Kingdom, Epcot, Disney's Hollywood Studios, or Disney's Animal Kingdom. The one-day ticket does not allow park-hopping or use of the Disney transportation system.
Park Hopper - This option added to your ticket can be used at all theme parks – Magic Kingdom, Epcot, Disney's Hollywood Studios, or Disney's Animal Kingdom – on the same day and also includes use of the Disney transportation system. It is available for all tickets, whether you buy a one-day or a 10-day ticket. Add $59 to each ticket for this option.
Water Park Fun & More - This option entitles guest to a specified number of visits (between 3 and 6) to a choice of entertainment and recreation venues. Choices are Disney's Blizzard Beach and Disney's Typhoon Lagoon water parks, DisneyQuest, Pleasure Island, Disney's ESPN Wide World of Sports complex. Add $59 to each ticket for this option.
Effective June 3, 2012, Disney has announced a new choice in options that combines both the Park Hopper and Water Park Fun & More options for a discounted price. Add $84 to each ticket for this option.
No Expiration - Add this one-time fee (from $35 to $325 per ticket depending on the number of days purchased) so that unused admissions on a ticket have no expiration date. All tickets expire 14 days after first use unless the "No Expiration" option is purchased.
