    We will be traveling to Orlando 6/22-7/4. We will be staying off site 6/22-6/29 and checking into POR 6/29-7/4. I'm having trouble deciding which tickets to buy. 4, 5, 6, & 8 day myw tickets? Add the waterpark & more or waterpark & hopper?

    Hi Anne,

    What a nice long vacation you will be having in Florida this year! 

    If you do not count June 22 when you arrive and July 4 when you leave, you have 11 full days in Florida. I would figure out how many of those days you plan to be in one of the four major parks at Walt Disney World. This will provide you with a guide to figure out how many days you will need to purchase.

    One note, if you purchase a Magic Your Way ticket with Water Park Fun & More option, you might be able to reduce the total number of days you need to buy a ticket. For each day your purchase, you receive the equivalent number of options. 

    Let me give you an example. Let's say you want to purchase a six day Magic Your Way ticket with Water Park Fun & More option. You would have six days to go into the four main parks plus six options to use at the two water parks, golfing or DisneyQuest. Now, if you count the six separate days in the park and then add two days at water parks, you have filled eight days of vacation with one ticket. Plus you would still have four more options to use.

    My family has purchased a lower number of days to visit the four main parks and used the options to hit the water parks. We still had a full week of activities at a lower price. 

    I would skip the Park Hopper option as the parks will be crowded and it is best to concentrate on one park at a time.

    Wishing you a magical vacation!
