Disney World offers more than seven thousand ticket options. Let us help you find the cheapest Disney admission for whatever you want to do. All prices include sales tax and shipping.
With the introduction of date-based pricing, Disney shortened the amount of time you have to use most tickets. Now, a ticket’s use period begins on the “start date” chosen at the time of purchase, and the time until expiration varies based on how many days you’re visiting the theme parks and water parks, as shown below:
For example, if you purchase a 4-Day 1 Park Per Day theme park ticket with a start date of June 15, 2024, you must complete your four days of theme park visits by the end of the seventh potential day of use (June 21, 2024). After that, the ticket is expired, even if you have not used all its admissions.
Three add-on options are offered with each ticket, each at an additional cost:
This add-on lets you visit more than one theme park per day, entering a second park any time after 2:00 pm. The cost varies by date and ticket length, randing from $67.10 to $101.18 (including tax) on top of the price of any 4-Day or longer ticket (it's a bit cheaper for shorter ticket lengths). The longer your stay, the more affordable it is: as an add-on to a 7-Day 1 Park Per Day Ticket, for example, during the most expensive period of the year the flat fee works out to $14.45 per day for park-hopping privileges. If you want to visit the Magic Kingdom in the morning and eat at EPCOT in the evening, this is the feature to request.
If you buy a ticket but then decide later that you want to add the Park Hopper option, you can do so. Note, though, that Disney doesn’t prorate the cost: if you add Park Hopper on the last day of your trip, you’ll pay the same price as if you’d bought it before you left home.
Adding the Water Park and Sports option to your 1 Park Per Day ticket allows you admission to Disney's two water parks (Typhoon Lagoon and Blizzard Beach), as well as some of the sports-centric spots on Disney World property.
The locations and options you can choose with this ticket are: Typhoon Lagoon Water Park, Blizzard Beach Water Park, ESPN Wide World of Sports, Oak Trail Golf Course (for 9-hole golf or FootGolf), Fantasia Gardens Miniature Golf, and Winter Summerland Miniature Golf.
For an additional $74.55 (includes tax) per ticket you get a set number of visits based on the length of the ticket you purchase. For instance, buying a 4-day park ticket entitles you to 4 visits to a water park or sports location. You can't change how many "visits" you get; the number is fixed, and unused days aren’t refundable.
If you buy a ticket but then decide later that you want to add the Water Park and Sports Option, you can do so. Note, though, that Disney doesn’t prorate the cost: if you add Water Park and Sports on the last day of your trip, you’ll pay the same price as if you’d bought it before you left home.
Park Hopper Plus combines the benefits of both the Park Hopper and the Water Park and Sports options together for an additional $88.40 to $122.48 (including tax), depending on the number of park days and the dates. The number of "plus" visits to the Water Park and Sports venues equals the number of days on your ticket. For example, if you buy an 8-Day Park Hopper Plus ticket, you get eight "visits." You can't change how many "visits" you get; the number is fixed, and unused days aren’t refundable.
Note that Park Hopper Plus costs $21.30 more than Park Hopper on its own; if you are already planning to purchase Park Hopper and want to visit a water park only once, it's a good value.
If you buy a ticket but then decide later that you want to add the Park Hopper Plus option, you can do so. Note, though, that Disney doesn’t prorate the cost: if you add Park Hopper Plus on the last day of your trip, you’ll pay the same price as if you’d bought it before you left home.
An Annual Pass provides frequent or unlimited use of the major theme parks during standard operating hours for one year. Annual Passholders must make park reservations for the first park they plan to visit on any given day. There are four versions of Annual Passes:
Note that Disney has the power to limit the numbers of each type of pass. Not all annual passes may be for sale at all times.
All passes include theme park parking and discounts on dining and merchandise. The Park Hopper option is included with an Annual Pass, but PhotoPass and access to the Disney water parks must be added on for $105.43 (tax included) for each option. There is no child price for annual passes: all guests 3 and over are charged the same amount. Check Disney's Annual Passholder Program webpage for the latest information.
In the past, Disney has raised prices 1-2 times per year, with increases averaging between 5-10% each year. Nowadays ticket pricing is associated with the dates for which the tickets are valid, and movements in price are more subtle. However, we still expect prices to go up over time. If you are budgeting for a future trip, to be safe plan for tickets to increase in price by about 10% per year.
