Walt Disney World Ticket Types FAQ

Updated: Mar 17



Is there more than one ticket type at WDW?

Yes, there are four different ticket types at WDW.


What are the different ticket types?

There are four main types of tickets to the Walt Disney World resort.

  • One Park per Day - This is a single or multi day ticket which allows guests to visit only one park on each day.

  • Park Hopper - This is a single or multi day ticket giving guests the option to change to another park after 2pm.

  • One Park per Day plus Waterparks, Sports, and More - this is a single or multi day ticket which also includes admission to either Typhoon Lagoon, Blizzard Beach, Disney’s Oak Trail Golf Course, Disney’s Fantasia Gardens Miniature Golf Course (before 4pm) , Disney’s Winter Summerland Miniature Golf Course (before 4pm) or the ESPN Wide World of Sports for the same number of days as the ticket. For example a four day ticket would include four entries total into all of the water parks or golf courses, not four entries per golf course or water park. For example, you could go to Blizzard Beach one day, Typhoon Lagoon another, then Oak Trail Golf Course the third day and return to Blizzard Beach the final day. You could not, however, do a water park each day and go golfing each day.

  • Park Hopper Plus - This is a park hopper ticket which also includes admission to either Typhoon Lagoon, Blizzard Beach, Disney’s Oak Trail Golf Course, Disney’s Fantasia Gardens Miniature Golf Course (before 4pm) , Disney’s Winter Summerland Miniature Golf Course (before 4pm)or the ESPN Wide World of Sports for the same number of days as the ticket. For example a four day ticket would include four entries total into all of the water parks or golf courses, not four entries per golf course or water park.


What is the difference between a single day and multi-day One Park per Day ticket?

SIngle Day tickets are purchased for admission to one specific WDW park. The guest will pick the park being attended, such as Magic Kingdom or Hollywood Studios when purchasing. Disney operates on date-based pricing for their tickets. A single day ticket the starting cost is $109 but is more depending on when you decide to go and what park you are visiting. Multi-day tickets allow you to visit the parks over multiple days, assuming there is a park reservation available, read more about that here. Multi-day tickets are also date-based, but allow you to pick the park independent of pricing. Also, for multi-day tickets, the cost per park day decreases with the number of park days you book.


How much time do I have to use my multi-day ticket?

Multi-Day tickets are good for the number of days of the ticket plus 2. For example with a 3 day One Park per day ticket, the tickets are valid for five days from the first park day.


What is the cost difference between a One Park per Day ticket and a Park Hopper ticket?

Because the cost of a single park ticket varies park to park and seasonally that does not have a straightforward answer. The price increase also depends on how many days your tickets are for plus the time of the year of your visit. On the low end, it can range anywhere from $109 more for a one day ticket to $55 more per day for a ten day ticket. Again, those are the starting price increases, if the base ticket costs more, the price increase for Park Hopper will also be higher.


What is the cost difference for the Water Park and Sports ticket option? Adding this increases your ticket by $70 regardless of how many days are included in the base ticket or if it is a child ticket or an adult ticket.


What is the ticket price difference between Park Hopper and Park Hopper Plus?

You only increase the price of the ticket by $20 above the Park Hopper add on price, which makes it a good deal, especially for a longer stay.


Can I buy a single ticket for either Blizzard Beach or Typhoon Lagoon?

Yes. The cost for a single water park ticket is between $64 and $69 for an adult, depending on the date and $58 to $63 for a child ticket.


How is the ticketing system changing in 2024?

For visits after January 9, 2024 WDW will start selling date-based tickets. With these tickets no reservations will be necessary, you can pick any of the four theme parks on any day! All tickets purchased with a resort package will be date based. Theme park reservations may still be needed for any non-date-based tickets such as Annual Passes.

***It should be noted that these are the prices for 2024 tickets and are subject to increases at any time.
