    What is included in admission of the parks? Are the night shows included or are they extra?

    Hey there, Danielle, and welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel! I'm so glad you stopped by with your question. There's so much magic to experience at the Walt Disney World Resort, and I'm happy to help you see it all!

    When you purchase a ticket to Walt Disney World, it's your key to all the magic of the Theme Parks! With a 1-Day, 1-Park Ticket, you get Theme Park admission; entry to all of the rides, attractions, and shows; most character meet-and-greet opportunities; and lots, lots more! And of course, you also get to "ooh" and "aah" over nighttime spectaculars like Happily Ever After at Magic Kingdom Park, IllumiNations: Reflections of Earth at Epcot (soon to be Epcot Forever!), and Fantasmic! at Disney's Hollywood Studios - all included in your Theme Park admission.

    And if you upgrade your tickets to include the Park Hopper Option, you can do all of that at multiple Parks on the same day!

    With the exception of things like food and beverages, dessert parties, character meals, VIP experiences, and certain special events, your admission to Walt Disney World includes, well, the whole World!

    Danielle, another absolutely free tool you can use in your planning is Disney's FastPass+ service. FastPass+ allows you to reserve a time to experience select attractions and shows without having to wait in the standby line. You'll need a My Disney Experience account and valid tickets, and you can start making FastPass+ selections up to 60 days in advance if you're staying in a Walt Disney World Resort hotel. It's such a great help in planning your Disney day, and it's included with your admission. How awesome is that?

    I hope this helps you plan a magical Walt Disney World vacation, Danielle. If you have any more questions about Disney's FastPass+ service, or any other aspect of your vacation, please come back and see us again. We're always here to help!

    Keep Disney Dreaming,

Meet the Panelist: Kathy, Florida

I've lived my whole life just an hour's drive from Walt Disney World, so I've been a regular visitor for as long as I can remember. Even after all these years and so many visits, I love that there's still so much to discover! Now that I'm a mom myself, seeing my favorite place through my son's eyes has given me a whole new perspective that I enjoy sharing with other parents of young children. Learn More About Kathy
