|LAKE BUENA VISTA, Fla. – The
innovative Magic Your Way ticket plan at Walt Disney World Resort
truly empowers guests to create their own tickets for a personally
Guests can tailor tickets to include one to 10 days of theme park
visits and add options of their choosing – such as Park Hopper,
admission to Disney attractions and experiences outside the theme
parks, and non-expiration.
“Whether ordering a computer, a car or a cup of coffee, people want
things customized to fit their individual needs,” said Al Weiss,
president, Worldwide Operations, Walt Disney Parks and Resorts.
“Walt Disney World guests have that same ability to customize their
dream vacation by creating a ticket that is just right for them.”
The pricing structure of Magic Your Way includes savings that
increase as the guest stays longer. The value of the option that
provides admissions to attractions and experiences outside the theme
parks also increases on tickets for longer stays.
Here are some of the notable features of the ticket plan:
Base Ticket provides admission to one Walt Disney World theme
park on one day. The parks a guest can choose among are: Magic
Kingdom, Epcot, Disney’s Hollywood Studios and Disney’s Animal
- The Base Ticket may be purchased
for one to 10 days.
- The per-day cost of admission
decreases in steps when multi-day tickets are purchased. For
instance, a four-day Magic Your Way Base Ticket costs less than
75% of the price of four one-day tickets purchased individually.
Per-day cost of a seven-day ticket is less than 45% of the price
of seven one-day tickets. And with a 10-day ticket, per-day cost
is less than 33% of an equivalent number of admissions using
- The days the ticket is used for
admission do not need to be consecutive.
- Magic Your Way tickets expire 14
days after initial use unless the No Expiration option has been
added to the ticket.
- The No Expiration option is
available on tickets for two days or more. It simply means that
unused admissions on a ticket have no expiration date. The cost
is based on the number of days on the original ticket – not on
the number of unused days – and the cost increases in uneven
steps to as much as $209 (on a 10-day ticket).
- The Park Hopper option allows
the guest to visit more than one park a day. The price of the
feature is fixed (currently $52) whether Park Hopper is added to
a one-day ticket or a 10-day ticket.
- Some potential benefits of Park
Hopper: (1) taking advantage of the Extra Magic Hours program,
which provides Disney resort hotel guests with exclusive time
each day in a designated Disney park either before or after
regular park operating hours; (2) doing a “sampling” of Disney
park experiences during a short visit; or (3) revisiting
favorites in several parks “for one more ride” later in a long
- The Water Park Fun & More option
entitles a guest to visit a choice of gated Walt Disney World
entertainment and recreation venues – currently Disney’s
Blizzard Beach water park, Disney’s Typhoon Lagoon water park,
DisneyQuest indoor interactive “theme park,” Disney’s Oak Trail
golf course, and Disney’s Wide World of Sports Complex.
- The price of the Water Park Fun
& More option is fixed (currently $52), but the number of
admissions available to the guest is determined by the number of
days on the Base Ticket. Added to a two-day through 10-day
ticket, the option provides a similar number of visits to the
guest’s choice of Water Park Fun & More experiences. On a
one-day Magic Your Way ticket, the Water Park Fun & More option
provides two admissions to the guest’s choice from among the
- A guest more than recoups the
cost of the Water Park Fun & More option by using it for two
adult admissions to any combination of Blizzard Beach (regular
one-day ticket is $45), Typhoon Lagoon ($45), DisneyQuest ($41)
and Oak Trail golf course ($38).

considerations: Guests decide which gated attraction(s) they
will visit (e.g., if they have five admissions available and
love DisneyQuest, they can visit DisneyQuest five times); and
the period for use is 14 days from when the Magic Your Way
ticket is first used (unless the No Expiration option has been
