Disney Theme Park Tickets

The Walt Disney World resort includes 4 theme parks, 2 water parks, and the Disney Springs area (formerly Downtown Disney). A ticket is required for all of these locations except Disney Springs. There are several different Disney theme park tickets to help you customize your vacation package options to meet your family’s needs by giving you a few different ticket options.

Base Ticket

A Base Ticket is the starting point of different options for Disney theme park tickets. This ticket option includes admission to one of the four Walt Disney World theme parks per day. You may leave that park and return to that same park, but you cannot visit a second park that day (no “park hopping”). This is the perfect choice for the family who wants to remain in one park for the entire day or for a family with small children who need to go back and take afternoon naps. Single-Day tickets are valid for admission on the specific date selected. Multi-day tickets are valid for admission beginning on the start date selected and must be used within a limited time period.

Park Hopper Option

For an added cost, you can add the Park Hopper option to your Base Ticket. When you add the Park Hopper you gain access to more than one park per day. With this option, you can visit one park in the morning and a different park in the evening. Park Hopper hours begin at 2pm each day and end at the park’s scheduled close time.

Water Park + Sports Option

With this option, you can visit one theme park each day of your ticket. Plus, you get a certain number of visits to a Disney Water Park and other Walt Disney World sports-related fun based on the length of your ticket. For example, a 4-day ticket allows 4 visits and a 5-day ticket allows 5 visits. This option also extends the period of time within which you may use your ticket by one day. For example, a 6-day ticket with the Water Park and Sports Option with a start date of November 1, ticket is valid any 6 days from November 1 – November 10. For each visit, you can choose one of the following:
  • Disney’s Typhoon Lagoon Water Park
  • Disney’s Blizzard Beach Water Park
  • ESPN Wide World of Sports Complex
  • Disney’s Oak Trail Golf Course
  • Disney’s Oak Trail Golf Course – FootGolf
  • Disney’s Fantasia Gardens Miniature Golf Course
  • Disney’s Winter Summerland Miniature Golf Course

Park Hopper Plus Option

Visit multiple Theme Parks each day of your ticket! Plus, you get a certain number of visits to a Disney Water Park and other Walt Disney World sports-related fun based on the length of your ticket. For example, a 4-day ticket allows 4 visits and a 5-day ticket allows 5 visits. This option also extends the period of time within which you may use your ticket by one day. For example, a 6-day ticket with the Park Hopper Plus Option with a start date of November 1, ticket is valid any 6 days from November 1 – November 10. For each visit, you can choose one of the following:
  • Disney’s Typhoon Lagoon Water Park
