    Hello. I wondered how much it is to buy a day ticket for Disney? Can you buy them before or only on the gate? Thanks Leah

    Hi Leah!
    Welcome to planDisney.

    It's a pleasure to answer questions from my fellow guests from the UK.  Thank you for sending this question because it's a good idea to explore all ticket options to find the best deal for our holiday.

    If you buy one-day tickets at Walt Disney World, prices vary and as I don't know the date of your trip these are the prices for today (28th May): a 3-day ticket with park hopper option would cost US$587.08 (including tax) per adult.  Tickets for one-day admission (with no park hopper) vary in price for each theme park. Please note that these prices include tax and are subject to change
    Magic Kingdom Park US$190.64
    EPCOT US$174.66
    Disney's Hollywood Studios US$185.31
    Disney's Animal Kingdom Theme Park US$164.01

    Unfortunately, you cannot buy these tickets from the UK, but once you arrive in the US you can purchase tickets at any Guest Relations window at all the Walt Disney World theme parks, and water parks, and at the Ticket Center at Disney Springs.  You can also buy tickets online in the US at

    The price quoted above for 3 days admission to any Walt Disney World theme park has the option to park hop the same day, but does not include water parks or Memory Maker - these can be added for an additional cost.  If it's possible you will visit the theme parks for three or more days I would encourage you to look at the UK-exclusive tickets - 7-Day or 14-Day Magic Tickets.  These tickets are offered at a very competitive price, and give you 7 or 14 days of entry to all four theme parks, park hopping to any other park (subject to capacity), entry to the water parks (whichever is open), and use of Memory Maker for all those photos taken by the Disney PhotoPass Photographers around all the parks, and digital downloads of those fantastic ride photos.   When you look at the current prices (starting at £529 per adult, prices subject to change), you will see that they are a very good deal for UK guests.  You have 15 days in which to use your 7-day ticket, or 18 days to use your 14-day ticket, so they give us a lot of flexibility.

    Our UK Magic Tickets do not require advance park reservations, whereas any non-date-based tickets purchased in the US will need park reservations which are always subject to availability.

    Please come back and visit us if you have any further questions, and you can send me a direct question if you wish.  We are very happy to help you plan your magical holiday at Walt Disney World!
