Choosing the right ticket, before you make a decision, it helps to map out your vacation. Remember all tickets start at a base ticket. They are a bare bones admission-to-one-theme-park-at-a-time deal, that's perfect for many folks, especially those planning short stay. Still, the first step for you is to decide just how many days you plan to spend in the theme parks. Keep in mind that as days are added, the average price per day goes down. Unused days expire 14 days after the ticket is activated. Once the length of the stays determine it is nice to customize the ticket. (If the total number of days is undetermined, err on the side of caution -- unused on can't be refunded, but you can add extra days up to 14 extra days, up to 14 days after the ticket is first used Do you want to park hop? Add about $55 to $62. Want to add the park hopper plus option? That's about 60 to 65 to $70.
If you're planning a longer visit or two trips within a year we recommend a multi- day Park hopper or annual pass. In addition to unlimited admission to the parks an Annual Pass entitles you to discounts at everything from dinner shows to room rates. Note: Only one person per party needs to have an annual pass to get the discount on a Walt Disney World Resort (when available). This option is great for travelers with flexible schedules, as discounts do vary, and they are often announced shortly before going into effect.
Tickets with unused Days: Prior to 2005, Walt Disney World tickets never expired. That is no longer the case. Days remaining on a multi-day admission ticket now expired 14 days after the ticket is activated.
Attractions Outside the Theme Parks: Typhoon lLagoon and Blizzard Beach water park Prices start at about $60 for one day, and about $130 for an annual pass for adults: $54 for one day, and about $134 annual pass for kids ages three to nine.
ESPN Wild World of Sports Complex runs about $18 for adults about $13 with kids.
