A Quick Guide to the Disney Magic Your Way Ticket

by Mommy Frog on September 7, 2017 12 Orlando

Congratulations ... you're going to Disney World!! ... Or at least it's highly likely if you're reading this post then you're going to Disney World. Once you've made the decision to visit Disney World, and you've decided when to visit Disney World, it's time to get down to business and buy tickets. While this should be one of the easiest parts of your journey, with so many options, it often brings another round of research or guesswork. We're hoppy to take all that guesswork away. (Oh, and we can help take away the ouch that comes when you open your credit card statement with our discount Disney tickets.)  Today, we're looking at the Disney Magic Your Way Ticket.

What Is Disney Magic Your Way and Which Parks Does It Include?

The Disney Magic Your Way Ticket is the most basic option for your Disney World visit. All of the following Disney World theme parks are options with Disney Magic Your Way:

If you click any of the above links, you can see more information about each of the parks, including key attractions and showtimes, ride waits, park plans and more.

With the Disney Magic Your Way ticket, you are allowed to enter one Walt Disney World theme park for each day of your ticket. So for each day of your ticket, you can enter Magic Kingdom, Epcot, Disney's Animal Kingdom or Disney's Hollywood Studios. There is no hopping among the parks on the same day (you'll need a Park Hopper for that), but you can leave the theme park on the day you enter and return to that same theme park later in the day.

Pro Tip: Take a break in the afternoon. Families with young tadpoles might need an afternoon nap and older kids will enjoy a refreshing swim in the hotel pond. Besides, the smart frogs who know that this is when the parks' crowds peak.  

How Many Days Are Disney Magic Your Way Tickets?

You can get Magic Your Way in 1-day, 2-day, 3-day ... all the way up to 10-day tickets. You do not have to use the tickets on consecutive days, but you do have to use them within 14 days after first use. So, for example, if you're planning a 10-day vacation to Disney World, you might decide to buy the Disney Magic Your Way 8-Day Ticket. That way, you can build in a couple of days of "downtime away" from the parks and hop to Disney Springs for shopping and dining, tour the resort hotels or just relax at the pool.

The More Days You Play, the More Days You Save with Disney Magic Your Way

It's true, Disney Magic Your Way is the most basic, or least expensive, ticket option for visiting Disney World. The more days you visit, the more you will save per day. For example, at the time of this writing, we're selling an adult 10-Day Disney Magic Your Way Ticket for $451.36 (a whopping $37 off gate price!). That breaks down to a little more than $45 a day. By comparison, an adult 1-Day Disney Magic Your Way Magic Kingdom ticket is $118.19. You don't need to be a math whiz to figure out there is a sweet spot for savings!

It's important to know that you can upgrade your tickets in the parks. So if you decided you had Disney Magic Your Way base tickets, you could upgrade them to Park Hoppers. But do know you would have to upgrade them for your entire length of stay. If you have a 3-day ticket, you would have to upgrade them for all three days.

While most vacationing families aren't purchasing 1-day tickets, do keep in mind that if you want these tickets, you'll need to know your dates and which park you plan to visit. 1-Day Magic Your Way Tickets are broken into peak and regular pricing, and the choice of visiting Magic Kingdom, or Epcot, Disney's Animal Kingdom or Disney's Hollywood Studios.

Our top-selling Disney World ticket is the 4-Day Magic Your Way Ticket with 2 Extra Days.

Is Disney Magic Your Way Right for Me?

As we mentioned, Disney Magic Your Way Tickets are the least expensive option. Perhaps surprisingly, though, we think they are the best ticket option for most families making a first-time visit to Disney World. This is because there is a ton to see in each of the parks. At Magic Kingdom alone, you could easily spend two entire days and not experience all it has to offer. Most first-time families want to see and do as much as they possibly can in each park before moving onto the next. They're less concerned about experiencing the water parks or even the excellent on-site hotel amenities, because they want to spend as much time as they can in the parks.

A Disney Magic Your Way ticket is a good choice if ...

  • You have young children: One park per day is usually plenty for small children. If you leave and come back to the same park, they usually enjoy the familiarity of it more than starting over at a different park.
  • It’s your first time: If it’s your first visit, you’ll have enough to do staying in one park the entire day without the added stress of visiting a second park.
  • You are incorporating other activities into your vacation: If you have activities planned such as shopping at Disney Springs or dinner reservations at a Disney hotel, one park per day might be enough. (May we recommend Victoria & Albert's for a fancy dinner date without tadpoles?)
  • You want to save the most money possible: Magic Your Way tickets are cheaper than Park Hopper tickets, so if your main goal is to spend the least amount of money possible, go with the MYW.
  • You are visiting during the busy holiday season: Navigating between parks during the very busiest days of the year eats up a lot of valuable time. It may only happen a day or two a year, but if a park reaches capacity and you leave that park, you will not be able to re-enter.

So there you have it! We hope this overview of the Disney Magic Your Way ticket has been helpful as you plan your trip. We've got a ton of other resources in our Orlando planning guide. Short on time? Download our Disney World Quick-Start Guide.

How do I purchase our 3-day Disney Magic Your Way tickets? Can we go to the same park two different days? I have found the planning process for this trip to be stressful. It is very confusing with all the options.

Hi Kim,

Hop over here to purchase the 3-Day Magic Your Way tickets! Yes, you can definitely go to the same park on different days. You just will only be able to visit one theme park per day!

Keep hopping!

Are package deals available only for families? We are planning a six night stay for 2 people in October.

Can you use two days worth of parks in one day if you purchase say a 6 day base ticket and you’ll only have time for 5 days in the parks?

Feb 22, 2018 at 10:57 a.m. FrogBlog Says...

Hi Kelly,

If you're wanting to hop between the parks on the same day, you'll have to purchase a Disney Park Hopper Ticket. Park Hoppers allow you to go from one park to the next in the same day!

Keep hopping!

If I bought a 10 day Magic your way tickets, can I divide those among 3 people or must the same person use all 10 days? Also, can 2 myw tickets be used in one day? For example, half day spent at HS and the other half at Epcot using 2 tickets total.

Jan 29, 2018 at 2:19 p.m. FrogBlog Says...

Hi Melissa!

Disney tickets are non-transferrable, so the 10-day Magic Your Way ticket will have to be used by one person individually. You can use two MYW tickets in one day at different parks!

Hoppy planning!
