    We will be in DW June 21-25 1st time for all The only thing we have booked is the rental home about 8 miles outside disney.4 kids and 6 adults going. We want to enjoy as many parks/attractions as possible. Which tix choices are best? so confused...

    Hello, LeAndra!

    Congratulations on booking your very first trip to Walt Disney World!

    For ticket options, consider the price difference between the Magic Your Way Base Ticket and the cost of adding the Park Hopper Option. (A Park Hopper allows you to visit as many WDW parks as you'd like on each of your 5 days.) At the time of this writing, an adult (10+) Magic Your Way Base Ticket for 5 days is $251; adding the Park Hopper to that brings the total to $306. A child's Base Ticket (3-9) currently costs $232, with the Park Hopper bringing the total to $287.

    Adding the Water Park Fun & More Option on top of all of this lets you enter both of WDW's great water parks, as well as DisneyQuest Indoor Interactive Theme Park and other venues. A 5-day ticket entitles each Guest to 5 of these visits. The total adult cost of these options is $361, and a child's total cost is $342. (Incidentally, if you skip the Park Hopper Option, and only add Water Park Fun & More, your totals are exactly the same as what was quoted for the Hopper Option.) Unless you really love water parks, skip that option. If you decide, once you're there, that you do have time, spend $52.19 (adults, kids are $43.67) for a Single-Day Water Park Ticket.

    If you are trying to save $, then your days can easily be planned without hopping. If you'd like to keep your options open, for an additional coast, then add the Park Hopper Option.

    If you have additional questions about this, or any other aspect of your upcoming trip to WDW, please send them my way!
