    Feb 3 - 10, 4 park days, 1 rest day, 1 water park day, but only if warm enough. If it’s too cold, we will do a 5th theme park day. Should I buy 5 day ticket water park option or 4 day regular ticket and then buy the last ticket the day of/know the weather?

    Hi Sharon, 

    It’s absolutely lovely to see you again! Thanks for asking us another question. 

    The answer to your question is a solid… it depends! I’m Canadian, so my definition of “warm” may not be the same as yours. That said, I find that I adapt pretty quickly to the Central Florida climate, so I probably wouldn’t want to visit a Walt Disney World Water Park if there was a bit of a chill in the air. 

    I’ve taken a look at Theme Park Ticket and Water Park Ticket prices during your dates, and I think I’d actually recommend that you buy a 5-Day Ticket rather than a 4-Day Ticket, based on the fact that your plans aren’t set in stone yet. You see, a 4-Day Theme Park Ticket with the Water Park and Sports Option is about $10 less expensive than a 5-Day 1 Park Per Day Theme Park Ticket (that is, with no options added.) Meanwhile, a 1-Day Water Park Ticket with Blockout Dates (which don’t apply during your visit) seems to be about $64. Because the weather can be so unpredictable, I think that you’d be getting a better value out of purchasing a 5-Day ticket right away and then adding on the Water Park Ticket, weather permitting. 

    Of course, please note that these prices are subject to change at any time, so please double-check that nothing has changed when you go to actually purchase your tickets for your visit this February. 

    Plus, don’t forget that even if you do choose to visit Disney’s Blizzard Beach Water Park during your visit, you can always use that 5th day on either your Water Park day or even your “Rest” day to just go into a Theme Park for dinner and fireworks. You don’t have to go in for a full day in order to get your money’s worth – an hour or two will do sometimes, especially if your kids need to enjoy the Parks a bit differently than most. Sometimes my son can only handle an hour or two, which is why I really appreciate the flexibility of potentially being able to visit the Parks every day of our visit. 

    As always, please don’t hesitate to come back and see us if you have any other questions. We’re always here to help and I’d love to help make sure that your family gets to enjoy its vacation to the fullest!

    Have a Magical Day,
