  • Disney World Ticket Buying Guide

    One of the most common question in the forums is about Disney World tickets and many are confused as to what options to purchase and for how many days. I'm going to try to make and make your purchasing tickets easier here but keep in mind with so many options you should carefully consider your Disney World tickets.

    Want to skip to who we recommend? The very best place to buy tickets for Orlando attractions is MapleLeafTickets.com 

    The prices below are gate prices and are out dated and are use for example purposes... This is example pricing from 2011 but this will help illustrate why you might want to buy more than just a 2 day ticket for example. These prices will have changed by the time your are reading this. 

    Okay, some genius somewhere at Disney decided that confusing and frightening people with all the options and a potential gauntlet of bad purchases would make them more money. Read the following carefully and you will find the best bang for your buck. The whole system appears to me to be a way to keep you on their property longer. The idea is that if they give you a substantial discount for the more days you buy the more time you will spend at Disney and the less money will go elsewhere all the while making sure that you don't load up on tickets at this years prices like we used to do in the past.

    How many days should I buy my Disney World Tickets for?

    Well, lets answer this with another question, how many days are you staying for?  Consider the following, we will only cover the adult tickets for illustration purposes and prices are rounded and out of date by the time you are reading this (Disney changes prices about twice a year, check the shopping cart for our prices). 

    • 1 day Disney World base tickets are $75! 1 day and not even a park hopping ticket!

    • 2 day Disney World base tickets are $148, again, not even a park hopper!

    • 3 day Disney World base tickets are $216, now you are starting to get a break on price at about $72 a day

    • 4 day Disney World base tickets are $225, again, even cheaper at $45 per day

    • 5 day Disney World base tickets are $228, about the same price as a 4 day at $45 per day

    • 6 day Disney World base tickets are $231, wow, now it's only $38 per day, so an extra day is only $3 more.

    • 7 day Disney World base tickets are $233, so now you are getting an extra day for just $2!

    • 8 day Disney World base tickets are $235, just $2 more again

    • 9 day Disney World base tickets are $237, you guessed it $2

    • 10 day Disney World base tickets are $239, well, 2 is a great number right?

    The above are base tickets meaning that they can only be used for entry into The Magic Kingdom, Epcot, Disney's Hollywood Studios or Disney's Animal Kingdom... you can not exit one park and travel to another park in the same day and before you think to yourself well I'll just buy more days than I need and use those extra days to park hop think again because you can't. So how can you park hop? Well you need to add the Park Hopper option.

    Park Hopping!

    The park hopper option is $48 more no matter how many days you buy, yep, a single day park hopper is $123 big ones! But consider that for just $48 extra you can exit one park and travel to another but only with the 4 main parks (Magic Kingdom, Epcot, Disney's Hollywood Studios and Animal Kingdom). So a 10 day park hopper ticket would only be $287, not to bad considering what you are getting but there is a problem still, these tickets expire 14 days after first use so there goes your idea of buying 10 days and only using 5 during this trip to Disney World... don't despair there is a way to save those tickets with the "no expire" a.k.a. "no expiration" option.

    No Expiration Disney World Tickets! (this option will be going away soon)

    Okay, so now you want to buy 10 day tickets and use only 5 days this trip... you will need to add the no expiration option to your Disney World tickets priced as follows.

    • 1 day Disney World no expiration ticket option (duh? it's only a single day ticket)

    • 2 day Disney World no expiration ticket option is $10 which doesn't make sense to me, just buy 2 singles right?

    • 3 day Disney World no expiration ticket option is $21. okay now you are starting to save a little money

    • 4 day Disney World no expiration ticket option is $47 price jump

    • 5 day Disney World no expiration ticket option is $63 wow, they really want you to use those tickets

    • 6 day Disney World no expiration ticket option is $69

    • 7 day Disney World no expiration ticket option is $100

    • 10 day Disney World no expiration ticket option $191, ding, ding, guess what, you no longer want the no expire option.

    Water Park & More (A.K.A. Magic Plus) Disney World Tickets !

    But what about the other parks like Typhoon Lagoon, Blizzard Beach, Pleasure Island, Disney Quest and Wide World of Sports complex?  You my friend need the "magic plus" option. By now you are saying stop, stop, my brain is swelling but this option can be a huge savings. Lets look at the pricing but also notice that the more days on your regular tickets the more days you get at these other parks.
