If you’re planning a trip to Walt Disney World Resort, buying the tickets should be one of your first concerns. Although you can get passes at the park gates, you’ll save a lot of time and effort by purchasing them ahead of time.

You can even get an advance purchase discount on some tickets. Read on for other tips on buying Walt Disney World tickets.

Magic Your Way
Walt Disney World Resort introduced the Magic Your Way system to help guests customize their tickets. A Magic Your Way ticket lets you enter one theme park per day and buy any number of days you want on a discount system. The more days you buy, the less you’ll have to pay for each day. You can also extend your ticket or add options for access to other Disney attractions. Here are some of your options:
One-day ticket: A one-day ticket allows you to enter one of four parks: Epcot, Magic Kingdom, Animal Kingdom, or the Disney-MGM Studios. This does not include access to the Disney transport system.
Base Ticket: The Magic Your Way Base Ticket lets you choose the number of days the ticket is good for. You can one of the four theme parks per day. This ticket can be upgraded with the Park Hopper, Water Park Fun & More, and No Expiration options.
Park Hopper: Add $40 per ticket to gain access to all four theme parks on the same day. This also allows you to use the Disney transportation system.
Water Park Fun & More: This option lets you visit one of the two Water Parks, Blizzard Beach and Typhoon Lagoon, as well as other Disney venues. You will be allowed three to six visits depending on the days on your Base Ticket. This costs $50 per ticket.
No Expiration: Magic Your Way tickets are good for 14 days from the first day of use. Add this option to remove the expiration date and save unused tickets for your next visit.
Advance Purchase Ticket: Get a discount when you buy four-day or ten-day tickets with the Park Hopper or Water Park Fun & More option. This applies to purchases made within the US, except in Florida.
Annual Pass: This includes admission to multiple theme parks per day, access to the Disney transportation system, free parking within Disney World, special Disney newsletter, and discounts for renewal and selected Disney establishments. Get the Premium Annual Pass to get admission to the Water Parks, the Wide World of Sports, DisneyQuest, and Pleasure Island.
The Ticket Tag System
Your middle and index finger are recorded onto your Walt Disney World ticket the first time you use it. This ensures that only you can use the ticket; you cannot transfer admission to someone else’s ticket. It also keeps anyone from using your credits if your ticket is lost or stolen. The Ticket Tag System applies only to guests above 10 years old. If a child below 10 uses a no-expiration ticket, he or she can upgrade to an adult ticket for free.
