1. Magic Your Way Tickets
How do I choose a ticket?
Magic Your Way Tix

The Walt Disney World® Resort rebuilt their tickets several years ago, giving consumers their first look at the “Magic Your Way” tickets. The philosophy behind the tickets is that consumers are able to design their own Disney vacation, picking how many days they want to spend at the parks, which parks to visit, etc., and based on what they decide, a corresponding ticket will be available.

The first factor in determining which Magic Your Way ticket is right for you is to decide how many days you want/plan to spend at the 4 major Disney parks. The Disney parks are;

The easiest way to determine how many days you and your family will spend at the parks is to draw up a sample itinerary. Layout how many days you'll be in Florida, and figure what other attractions you definitely want to see, such as SeaWorld Orlando. There are 8 different options to chose from; 1 day ticket, 2 day tickets, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, and 10.

Now that you know how many days you want to purchase your ticket for, you must know choose which of the following 4 options you want to attach to your ticket;

  • Park Hopper® option
  • Water Park Fun, & More option
  • Park Hopper® AND Water Park, Fun & More option
  • No Expiration option

Park Hopper option – Buying a “Magic Your Way” ticket with the “Park Hopper” option enables you to visit the 4 major Walt Disney World® Resort parks during the same day. For example, you can head over the Magic Kingdom during the morning, then jump on the Walt Disney World® Resort transportation and spend the afternoon at Epcot. With the “Park Hopper” option, there is no limit to the amount of parks you can visit during one day.

Water Park Fun & More option – Buying a “Magic Your Way” ticket with the “Water Park Fun & More” option is a great way to add more attractions, days, and value to your ticket for a small increase in price. This ticket will still be used for the number of days on the ticket to enter the 4 major Disney parks, but you will also receive EXTRA ADMISSIONS, which can be used at the following attractions;

• Disney's Typhoon Lagoon Water Park
• Disney's Blizzard Beach Water Park
• ESPN Wide World of Sports® Complex (including 30 minutes of game access at The PlayStaion® Pavilion)
• DisneyQuest® Indoor Interactive Theme Park
• Disney's Oak Trail Golf Course (a relaxed nine-hole walking course)
• Disney's Fantasia Gardens Miniature Golf Course (before 4:00 PM)
• Disney's Winter Summerland Miniature Golf Course (before 4:00 PM)

The number of extra admissions differs depending on the number of days your ticket is good for. Here's a breakdown;

• 3 Day ticket – 3 EXTRA ADMISSIONS
• 4 Day ticket – 4 EXTRA ADMISSIONS
• 5 Day ticket – 5 EXTRA ADMISSIONS
• 6 Day ticket – 6 EXTRA ADMISSIONS
• 7 Day ticket – 7 EXTRA ADMISSIONS
• 10 Day ticket – 10 EXTRA ADMISSIONS

So where do the extra days come from? The great thing about adding the “Water Park Fun & More” option is that the extra admissions DO NOT have to be used on the same day you visit the 4 major Disney parks. For example, if you purchase a 4 day ticket with the “Water Park Fun & More” option, you will have 4 days to visit the 4 major Disney parks, plus 4 extra admissions that can be used on separate days, resulting in a total of 8 DAYS of fun. However, unless you purchase the “No Expiration” option, the ticket will expire 14 days after the first day of use.

*The “Water Park Fun & More” option replaces the “Plus” option that was popular in recent years.

No Expiration option – Buying a “Magic Your Way” ticket with the “No Expiration” option offers exactly what it says, your ticket WILL NEVER EXPIRE. Without purchasing this option, all tickets will expire 14 days after the first day of use. If you purchase a “No Expiration” ticket, you can return to the Walt Disney World® Resort ANY TIME, and use days and admissions that you never got a chance to use during your first visit. This is a great option for avid Disney fans who enjoy visiting the parks from year to year. By purchasing the “No Expiration” option you can save money by upgrading your ticket to more days, up to 10. You won't feel any pressure to visit the parks each day of your trip, since the ticket will always be valid.
