If you’re attending the Food Allergy & Celiac Convention, it’s not necessary to buy tickets to the theme parks. Because the event is held at Coronado Springs Resort, you can freely come and go without worrying about extra admission prices or costs.
But for those making a vacation of it, you might want to secure some park tickets to enjoy what Walt Disney World has to offer during your stay. If it’s your first time heading in, you might be confused on all of the options available, so (of course!) we’re here to break it down for you.
If you’re planning a Disney vacation, the Magic Your Way Disney World tickets is the way to go. With these, you choose the number of days you want on your base ticket. A base ticket allows you to enter one theme park each day. Then, there are add-ons available, including “Park Hopping” (visiting multiple theme parks in one day) and “Water Park Fun and More” (visiting, well, the water parks and more!)
The base ticket includes admission to the four Walt Disney World Theme Parks. These include Magic Kingdom, EPCOT, Disney’s Hollywood Studios, and Disney’s Animal Kingdom. As mentioned, you can visit one park per day, and the tickets expire 14 days after they’re first used. Folks who purchase these with no add-on options cannot visit Blizzard Beach and Typhoon Lagoon (the water parks), or Disney Quest and Disney’s Wide World of Sports Complex.
As the price per day increases with each day added to the ticket, the difference between the costs of adding an extra day decreases. If you’re staying more than four days, the additional cost is minimal between days, compared to the first four days you’re there.
Here are some cost breakdowns to get you started:
- A One-Day Magic Kingdom ticket is $99 (adults) and $93 (child (ages 3 to 9))
- A One-Day EPCOT, Disney’s Hollywood Studios, or Disney’s Animal Kingdom is $94 (adult) and $88 (child)
After that, the costs are the same for any combination of parks.
- Two-Day: $188 (A), $175 (C)
- Three-Day: $274 (A), $255 (C)
- Four-Day: $294 (A), $274 (C)
- Five-Day: $304 (A), $284 (C)
- Six-Day: $314 (A), $294 (C)
- Seven-Day: $324 (A), $304 (C)
- Eight-Day: $334 (A), $314 (C)
- Nine-Day: $344 (A), $324 (C)
- Ten-Day: $354 (A), $334 (C)
Then there’s the Park Hopper, making it super convenient for vacationers to let you come and go through all four of the theme parks whenever you please. It also makes it convenient for Special Diet dining, when you want to reserve a special meal at the parks, but not spend the day there. Adding the Park Hopper to your ticket ranges in cost, depending on how many days you have, but is between $35 and $60.
If Water Parks and More are your speed, then the additional cost ($35 to $60) is the same. Grouping both together saves about half of the cost.
There are other options, as well. Visitors can now add the Memory Maker, giving you an unlimited amount of photo options that are taken by official Disney PhotoPass photographers. Instead of purchasing the photos individually, you can pre-order the Memory Maker and get digital copies, download them, and share them with family and friends. Vacationers can pre-add this to their tickets for a discount of $50, making it $149 for the advance purchase.
Like all things Disney, the magic doesn’t end there — there are plenty of options for additional fun and events in the parks. And don’t worry, we’ll get to those, too!
