    Welcome to planDisney, I am happy to assist you with your Walt Disney World Ticket question. Walt Disney World vacations can easily be customized to fit the magical experiences and stay you would like to have in a variety of ways. One such planning decision is which Walt Disney World ticket option is best for you.

    Before purchasing your Walt Disney World Theme Park tickets make a My Disney Experience account and download the mobile app this is your vacation hub and is worth getting to know. Next, have a look at the Theme Park Availability calendar to see which parks are available on the dates you are interested in visiting. Currently, Guests are required to make a Disney Park Pass reservation to enter the parks and are recommended they do this during the time of purchasing their tickets when prompted. When you are ready to purchase there are a couple of things to think about. Number of days you are visiting a Walt Disney World Theme Park and how many parks you would like to visit per day? 

    Guests purchasing a Standard Theme Park ticket can enter ONE Walt Disney World Theme Park/day. Standard Theme Park tickets can be purchased from 1-day up to 10-days. What this means is if you are planning to visit all four theme parks and only want to do one theme park/day you would purchase a 4-day Standard Theme Park Ticket.  Walt Disney World Resort theme park tickets are valid for admission beginning on the selected start date and MUST be used within the valid use period provided at the time of purchase, see the following link for further information. 

    Guests wishing to visit MORE THAN ONE Walt Disney World Theme Park/day will want to consider the upgraded Park Hopper option. With the Park Hopper option, Guests will make a Disney Park Pass reservation at the FIRST Walt Disney World Theme Park, they plan to enter for the day, and MUST visit before they can park hop. Park Hopping hours begin at 2:00 p.m. until the time of park closure. Park Hopping Park availability is at the discretion of Walt Disney World and can be checked on your My Disney Experience mobile app or by calling (407) 560-5000. Guests, with the Park Hopper option, can enter ALL of the Walt Disney World Theme Parks in one day if they are adventurous enough. 

    You will want to take into consideration the length of your Walt Disney World vacation and decide how you would like your days to look. Is every day going to be spent in a Park? Do you want a relaxation day? Do you want to visit a Park on your arrival day or departure day? Can your family handle more than one-Park/day? 

    Channing, I know it can be overwhelming but that is why we are here. Feel free to ask us any further curiouser and curiouser questions and check out our Panel Extras for more tips. 

    Have a Practically Perfect Day,

I am a Dreamer who has always believed dreams are meant to be the path to your future. Walt Disney, I believe, felt the same way, "All our dreams can come true, if we have the courage to pursue them." Disney has always been proof that endless imagination and the passion to make them come to fruition is possible. I will never be to old for Disney, it is home to all of us Dreamers.
