If you’re visiting Walt Disney World for the first time, one thing you should remember is to plan ahead. This isn’t as hard as it sounds - just buy your tickets ahead of time and look over the packages Disney World has to offer. Depending on the package you choose, your tickets may include reservations for hotels, restaurants and various Disney World events. Here are some of your options.
Magic Your Way tickets allow you to enter one Walt Disney theme park per day. You can choose how many days the ticket will last, but the rates get cheaper the more days you buy. You can also add the Park Hopper option to enter more than one theme park per day, the Water Park Fun and More for access to Walt Disney water parks, and the No Expiration option to save unused tickets for your next visit (basic tickets last 14 days).
Magic Your Way Vacation Packages
To get more out of Disney World, you can avail of Magic Your Way Vacation Packages. These include Magic Your Way tickets plus reservations at Disney Resorts and hotels, discounts at Disney restaurants, and access to Extra Magic exclusive hours. To suit your budget, you can choose from hotels in the Value, Moderate, and Deluxe classes.
Waiting in line is no way to spend your Disney World vacation. That’s why Disney introduced Fastpass, a new way to get into the ride of your choice. Just insert your admission pass into the Fastpass slot and you’ll get reservations for that ride. No more waiting in line - just come back at the reserved time with your Fastpass and be on board in less than 10 minutes. Fastpass is available at selected rides in all four theme parks.
The Magic Express Service
If you avail of one of the Vacation Packages, Disney’s Magic Express service can pick you up from the airport and take you directly to your hotel. Just check your luggage at your hometown airport and they’ll be waiting in your room as soon as you check in. The service also includes free rides to the Walt Disney theme parks. When it’s time to go home, just hop onto the Magic Express shuttle for a stress-free ride back to the airport. If you’re boarding one of the participating airlines, you can even check in your luggage at the hotel and get your boarding pass ahead of time.
Disney’s Magical Gatherings offers exclusive discounts for large parties. Groups of eight or more who are staying at one of the Disney hotels can join several Grand Gatherings Experiences. These include group meals such as the International Dinner at the Epcot Center and the Safari Celebration Dinner. If you’re taking your kids, sign them up for the Good Morning Gathering for fun activities at the theme parks and breakfast with classic Disney characters. You can also schedule a professional photo session for your group, or avail of two-way communication devices so your group can stay in touch.
