Regular Walt Disney World Ticket Prices

Regular ticket prices and annual passes last went up on October 16, 2018.

This page lists the prices of standard tickets that you can buy at the gate. We list the full price, including tax you’ll pay if you buy in person at Walt Disney World. You’ll pay less for some tickets when purchased in advance; read below for more.

There are discounts available on most of the tickets listed below. See our comprehensive list of discount sources for standard Walt Disney World tickets.

Prices on this page include tax! Note that ticket prices quoted at DisneyWorld.com do not include tax. On the Disney site the tax is added to the price during the ordering process, which is why the prices look lower than the prices below. Sales tax of 6.5% is charged regardless of where you buy the tickets.

Disney World tickets offer so many options that it may seem difficult to understand how much your “bottom line” price will be.

Price Tiers

Walt Disney World tickets vary in price depending on the season. Tickets are cheapest in mid-January and most expensive during Christmas season. You can expect higher prices around holidays and lower prices during periods when most children are in school.

You can still get “Flexible Date” tickets that are good any day of the year, just like the older “Magic Your Way” tickets, but they always cost a bit more than the most expensive standard ticket (covering the Christmas season). Since regular tickets can be changed any time if your dates change, there’s no real reason to get the flexible tickets. Just buy regular date-specific tickets once you feel like your dates are fairly firm. If you have to change the dates later, log in to MyDisneyExperience (or call Disney customer service) and change the tickets.

If you’re debating between two different lengths of ticket or whether to add Park Hopper or not, start with the cheapest ticket that you think will work for your trip. If you have to downgrade a ticket, you don’t get any money back, so you might as well start small and add days or features as needed.

Validity Length

Each ticket you buy is good for a certain number of admissions, but those admissions don’t necessarily have to be used consecutively. All regular 2-day or longer tickets are valid for a few extra days than the number of days of admission, so you can take a break partway through your trip and do other things. So, for example, a 3-day ticket allows you to visit the park for 3 days out of 5 calendar days. You could go on days 1, 2 and 3 or you could go on 1, 3 and 5, or even 3, 4 and 5.

Park Hopper Plus tickets (see below for more) offer extra admissions to water parks and golf, and also add one more validity day to each ticket.

Flexible Date tickets work just like the older “Magic Your Way” tickets. They are good on any day of the year and they’re valid for 14 days after the first day you use the ticket. They don’t vary in price over the year; they always cost a little more than a specific-date ticket that would cover the peak Christmas season. About the only reason you’d ever want to buy one of these tickets is to get the 14-day validity, such as if you wanted to go to Disney World for 3 days, take a 7-night cruise, and then come back and do 3 more days in the parks. In that case, a Flexible Date 6-day ticket would be a bargain compared with buying two 3-day tickets.

Savings tip: if a ticket offers more valid days than you need, that gives you some options as to what date range you can pick from. Let’s say you are buying a 4-day ticket and you actually intend to use it on 4 consecutive days, say April 8, 9, 10 and 11. Since a 4-day ticket is valid on any 4 days out of a 7-day range, you can actually buy a ticket that’s good from April 5-11, April 6-12, April 7-13 or April 8-14. If you get a Park Hopper Plus, you get one more day of validity, so you could even choose April 4-11. Any of those tickets will be valid on the 4 days you care about, so you can choose the cheapest one. For some dates (mostly leading up to a big holiday) there could be a spread of $5/day or more, which would be $20 per ticket! That’s not chump change. Most times of year, one of the tickets will be at least $1-$2 cheaper per day ($4-$8 per ticket in this case), and that’s good for a churro or two.

Here’s the whole chart of how many valid days you get with each ticket length:

Ticket Days Valid Period
1-Day Just one specific date
2-Day Any 2 days within 4 days after the start date (5 days for Park Hopper Plus)
3-Day Any 3 days within 5 days after the start date (6 days for Park Hopper Plus)
4-Day Any 4 days within 7 days after the start date (8 days for Park Hopper Plus)
5-Day Any 5 days within 8 days after the start date (9 days for Park Hopper Plus)
6-Day Any 6 days within 9 days after the start date (10 days for Park Hopper Plus)
7-Day Any 7 days within 10 days after the start date (11 days for Park Hopper Plus)
8-Day Any 8 days within 12 days after the start date (13 days for Park Hopper Plus)
9-Day Any 9 days within 13 days after the start date (14 days for Park Hopper Plus)
10-Day Any 10 days within 14 days after the start date (15 days for Park Hopper Plus)

Advance Purchase Discount

Tickets of 3 days or longer cost $21.30 less (including tax) when purchased in advance online or over the phone, as opposed to buying in person at the Disney World ticket booths, hotel desks or guest services. Our tables show the “gate” price. There are ways to get even larger discounts for tickets of 3 days or longer: see our comprehensive guide to Disney World ticket discounts for more on that.

Base Ticket

Base Tickets (also called “1 Park Per Day” Tickets), give you admission to one major theme park (Magic Kingdom, Epcot, Hollywood Studios or Animal Kingdom) each day. (You can leave and enter that same park multiple times on the same day.) You can add optional features at extra cost if you like, specifically Park Hopper (the ability to visit more than one park per day) or Park Hopper Plus (extra admissions to water parks and other activities other than the four main parks).

Disney World tickets are only valid on the dates you specify at purchase time (see our complete chart of how many valid days you get with each ticket). You can change the dates or options at any time before arriving, though if the change results in the price being higher, you have to pay the difference. If you make a change that results in a lower price, you don’t get a refund. If they expire unused, they can still be traded for new tickets. See our comprehensive explanation of Disney World ticket expiration and upgrades for more.

The chart below has the price ranges for all 1 Park Per Day tickets. You can also compare all of the ticket options on our full chart of all Disney World ticket prices.

10 $464.88-$539.20 $443.90-$518.22

Park Hopper Option

All prices listed include tax.

Adding the Park Hopper option lets you come and go as you please to any or all of the four major Walt Disney World theme parks (Magic Kingdom, Epcot, Hollywood Studios and Animal Kingdom) on the same day. Note that a regular Base Ticket allows you to visit all four parks; they just have to be visited on separate days. Park Hopper lets you switch parks during a single calendar day.

The extra cost on top of the base-price ticket is $58.58 for a 1-day ticket; $69.23 for add-on to 2- or 3-day tickets; or $79.88 for add-on to any 4-day or longer ticket. This works out to a little over $11 per day on a 7-day ticket.

Disney World tickets are only valid on the dates you specify at purchase time (see our complete chart of how many valid days you get with each ticket). You can change the dates or options at any time before arriving, though if the change results in the price being higher, you have to pay the difference. If you make a change that results in a lower price, you don’t get a refund. If they expire unused, they can still be traded for new tickets. See our comprehensive explanation of Disney World ticket expiration and upgrades for more.

The chart below has the prices for all tickets with Park Hopper. You can also compare all of the ticket options on our full chart of all regular Walt Disney World ticket prices.

Park Hopper Ticket Prices (Advance Purchase)

Adult (10+) Child (3-9)

9 $535.97-$610.32 $515.42-$589.75
10 $544.76-$619.07 $523.78-$598.09

We are often asked if you can buy, say, a 10-day Base Ticket and use it as a 5-day Hopper by visiting two parks per day. The answer is no. You can only enter one park per day with regular Walt Disney World Base Tickets (the gates will prevent you from entering another park on the same day with that ticket). You must buy the Park Hopper option if you want to go to more than one park per day.

The Park Hopper option can be added after the initial ticket purchase. For instance, if you buy a 7-day ticket and decide on the 2nd day of your vacation that you’d like to “hop” between parks, you can add the Park Hopper option for $79.88. Upgrades are allowed before midnight on the day you use the last admission, or the expiration date, whichever comes first.

Park Hopper Plus Option (formerly Water Park Fun & More)

All prices listed include tax.

This option adds special “visits” to water parks and smaller attractions to your park tickets. Each visit can be one of the following:

The number of “visits” you get with the Park Hopper Plus option is equal to the number of park days on the ticket, except for the 1-day ticket, which includes 2 visits. A 2-day ticket has both 2 days of major park admission and 2 visits, a 3-day ticket has both 3 days of major park admission and 3 visits, and so forth. This is an incentive to buy the longer passes, so that you’ll get more visits for your money.

You can mix and match visits, use them in any order, or even use more than one in one day. Each admission or golf round counts as one visit taken off your total, even if you go on the same day. There is no “hopping” privilege for the attractions included in this add-on. You do get “in and out” privileges at the two water parks, so you can go to Blizzard Beach in the morning, go back to your hotel, and come back in the evening, and it only uses one visit off your ticket. If you go to Blizzard Beach in the morning and Typhoon Lagoon in the evening, though, that would deduct two visits.

The extra cost on top of a Park Hopper ticket is a flat rate of $26.63, no matter how long the ticket. If you want to add this option to a Base Ticket, you need to also add Park Hopper, so the total cost to upgrade from a Base Ticket ranges from $85.20 to $106.50, depending on length.

Disney World tickets are only valid on the dates you specify at purchase time (see our complete chart of how many valid days you get with each ticket). You can change the dates or options at any time before arriving, though if the change results in the price being higher, you have to pay the difference. If you make a change that results in a lower price, you don’t get a refund. If they expire unused, they can still be traded for new tickets. See our comprehensive explanation of Disney World ticket expiration and upgrades for more.

The chart below has the prices for all tickets with Park Hopper Plus. You can also compare all of the ticket options on our full chart of all regular Walt Disney World ticket prices.

Park Hopper Plus Ticket Prices (Advance Purchase)

Days Park Hopper Plus – Advance Purchase
Adult (10+) Child (3-9)
1 $201.29-$222.59 $195.96-$217.26
2 $309.45-$348.64 $299.65-$338.84
3 $406.88-$460.60 $392.74-$446.47
4 $501.66-$568.11 $483.77-$550.22
5 $517.45-$587.35 $498.81-$568.71
6 $528.67-$601.09 $509.50-$581.92
7 $538.67-$613.31 $519.02-$593.67
8 $551.55-$625.26 $531.45-$605.15
9 $562.60-$636.94 $542.04-$616.38
10 $571.38-$645.70 $550.40-$624.72

Adding Park Hopper Plus to a Base Ticket is a good deal if you will be visiting the water parks at least twice or playing three rounds at Oak Trail. Adding Plus to a Park Hopper is worth it if you will be visiting a water park or Oak Trail even once! The value of the other options (ESPN Wide World of Sports Complex, Fantasia Gardens or Winter Summerland) is much lower. There’s really not much worth doing or seeing at the ESPN Wide World of Sports unless you’re seeing an event, and most of those have their own admission tickets which will include admission to the complex. (See the Other Admissions section of this page for regular prices.)

Note that with the Park Hopper Plus option, in most cases you have more admissions than you have valid days. For example, with a 7-day, you have a total of 14 admissions (7 theme park, 7 water park or other), but only 11 days to use them all. So if you actually wanted to use all of them, you’d have to visit more than one attraction on several days.

The Park Hopper Plus option can be added after the initial ticket purchase. For instance, if you buy a 7-day Park Hopper ticket and decide on the 5th day of your vacation that you’d like to visit the water parks, you can add Park Hopper Plus for $26.63. If you have a 7-day Base Ticket, you will also need to add Park Hopper, so the total upgrade will be $106.50. This will add the full 7 extra visits, which you can use within the 11-day period starting on the day you first started using the ticket, NOT the day you bought the ticket upgrade. Upgrades are allowed before the ticket expires OR before midnight on the day you use the last admission, whichever comes first.

No Expiration Option

Please Note: the No Expiration Option is no longer available for sale (as of February 22, 2015). Old no-expiration tickets are still being honored at the gate.

Regular “Magic Your Way” Tickets expire 14 days after their first use. The No Expiration option means the unused days never expire. You can come back and use them any time. If you find one of these in a drawer, it is still good (if the days haven’t all been used).
