    I have reservations for 4 nights in one property, then 4 in another. The specialist set up 3 day park hopper tickets tied to one and another set of 3 day tix, assigned to the other. Isn't it more cost effective to have just a 6 day ticket?

    Hey there, Tamara!

    Thanks for coming to see us here at planDisney! We always appreciate the chance to share our own Disney vacation experiences, tips, and ideas as a way to help you enjoy the magic in your own Disney vacation.

    I'm excited for you to hear that you have a trip to Walt Disney World Resort coming up. It's also cool to hear you're planning to enjoy different Resorts during your stay. One of the reasons I so enjoy vacationing at Walt Disney World Resort is that you can choose from so many unique Resort vibes.  

    You ask a great question about Walt Disney World Resort theme park tickets. In general, yes, theme park tickets become less expensive as you add more days to the ticket. Walt Disney World Resort likes to describe this benefit by saying "The longer you play, the less you pay per day!" Using your example, you would spend less to purchase one 6-day ticket than you would spend to purchase two 3-day tickets. 

    Tamara, you mention that you worked with a specialist for your reservations and ticket purchases, and I don't know the details of how your vacation package was put together. There could be a cost-savings upside for you that influenced how your reservations were booked. For example, there might be something in the Special Offers, Deals & Discounts that applied to your vacation plan to bring you some savings. 

    Another note to consider is that you could take different approaches to how you put the vacation plan together. You could book vacation packages that include both a Resort hotel room and tickets, and this sounds like the two stays you have set up. You could also book room-only reservations and then purchase tickets by themselves. For example you could book two 4-night room-only stays and then purchase a 6-day ticket separately. If you want to take a closer look at cost-effectiveness, my suggestion would be to work with the specialist who helped you book your stays, look at the cost comparisons of the different approaches, and determine which approach makes the most sense for you.

    Tamara, I hope this information helped a bit. If you have questions as you make your plans, feel free to ask us here at planDisney. We're here for you and happy to help.

    Enjoy all the magic of your Walt Disney World Resort vacation!

The playful and creative optimism of all things Disney has enthralled me since I was a kid. I loved watching "The Wonderful World of Disney" on Sunday nights, seeing all the live-action and animated classics in theaters, and — of course — visiting "The Most Magical Place on Earth" for the first time 45 years ago. These days, the big kid in me still loves to play Disney. As a long-time Disney destinations vacationer, I'm looking forward to helping you play Disney starting here at planDisney!
