    Josh from KS Asked Please note that experiences, policies, pricing and other offerings are subject to change and may have changed since the date of this answer.

    If we choose to stay in a normal hotel on the Disney park campus instead of a resort, will the tickets for each day still be included in the price?

    Welcome to planDisney Josh!

    When planning your magical visit to Walt Disney World, you have the option of so many hotel options. Resorts on Disney property are amazing, then add on options with Good Neighbor hotels, off property hotels, condos....your options are endless!

    If you plan to book a Walt Disney World Resort hotel, you have the choice to book a Room Only reservation or a Vacation Package. The Room Only is just that, a room! Theme Park Tickets will need to be purchased separately.

    You can also book a Vacation Package which will include a room and your theme park tickets. Although a package is priced with room and tickets, you still get to choose the number of park days on your tickets and upgrades such as Park Hopper and Genie+.

    The answer to your question of "is the ticket price included" is "it depends!" If you book a Vacation Package, your tickets will be included in the price. If you book Room Only, tickets are NOT included in the price. If you choose to book any type of off-property vacation or through a third party, you will need to find out what their pricing includes. 

    The easiest thing for you to do is to walk through the steps of planning your vacation. If you find a Vacation Package works best, you can book it with a $200 deposit, with the balance due 30 days prior to arrival. A Room Only reservation requires a deposit equal to a one night's stay (balance due upon arrival) with your Theme Park Tickets purchased separately. 

    I hope you find the perfect vacation plan for your visit to Walt Disney World!

Meet the Panelist: Cathy, Ohio

Hi, I'm Cathy from Cleveland. I love to travel, especially in the winter to escape the snow and cold of Ohio! My husband and 2 kids share my enthusiasm for travel, so we enjoy our adventures together whether it is hiking at a National Park, sailing on a Disney Cruise Ship, or going to Walt Disney World which is our home away from home. My husband proposed to me in front of Cinderella Castle and we have not stopped visiting ever since! It's a blast helping guests here at planDisney!
