Which Ticket to Buy for Your Orlando Trip

by Mommy Frog on June 12, 2014 118 Orlando

One of the best ways to Skip the Lines and save time and money is to purchase tickets in advance. From a 10 day Park Hopper + Water Park Fun & More ticket for the Walt Disney World® Resort to dinner shows and driving experiences, there are plenty of ticket combinations to suit your length of stay and touring preferences. This guide will help you determine which ticket to purchase for your Orlando trip.

Orlando Which Tickets - FastPass+ RFID tickets

Choosing the right tickets depends on a number of factors such as how long you will be in Orlando, what attractions you want to visit and whether you want to visit more than one attraction or park in a day. When deciding which tickets to buy for your Orlando family vacation, we recommend you use the list below.

Orlando Which Tickets Magic Your Way

Start by determining which resort you will be visiting. For a Disney World vacation, start your reading with Magic Your Way vs. Park Hopper tickets. All of our Disney World tickets are RFID-enabled. No matter which ticket you choose, be sure to read more about FastPass+, Disney's new reservation system that allows guests to book advance reservations for rides and entertainment experiences. For a visit to Universal Orlando Resort®, start by familiarizing yourself with Base vs. Park to Park tickets. Bear in mind, that in order to experience Hogwarts Express™ in The Wizarding World of Harry Potter™, you will need a Park-to-Park ticket.

Orlando - Which Ticket to Buy

We hope you’ve found this guide on where to stay in Orlando helpful as you plan your trip. You’ll find more planning information in our Orlando Planning Guide.

Hoppy planning!

Hi, we are a family of four, two adults and two kids aged 12 and 15 visiting Orlando for the first time arriving Dec 20th and departing Dec 28th 2016. What tickets would you suggest to help us make the most of our vacation? We would love to visit Disney, SeaWorld and Universal. Is it possible to get a three or four day type combo ticket for these attractions? Thanks.

FrogBlog Nov 3, 2016 at 12:48 p.m.

Hi Princess,

One ticket will not cover all of these parks, but you could do 3-4 days at Disney World, 3-4 days at Universal and one day at SeaWorld. There is a combo ticket that will cover Universal and SeaWorld, but it's more of a value with more days. We do offer discount tickets for all of these parks.

Firstly thank you so much! What an amazing and informative site you have. I live in Australia and we are planning on visited America next year, 4 adults and 6 kids ranging from 12-2! We. Are locked in for a work conference the 1st week in April, in your opinion are we better to book in some other stops and head to Disney world after the busy April period? Would hate to get all that way and not do as much as we wanted because of all the crowds. Ask so do you know If it's easy to get to

Other attractions in Orlando from the Disney resorts? Or are we better to stay a week at Disney and a week elsewhere?

Thanks so much.

Hi Briarna,

How long will you be in America? If you can visit Disney World the week after Easter, it would be better, but honestly, I would only do this if it was a viable option.

Hi I’ve had a good read and there are some great tips, can you help on what tickets to buy. I am visiting mid-August with my 13 year old son for 14 days.

During our stay we want to visit Universal, Islands of Adventure, Disney, Sea world and also visit to Discovery Cove for a swim. There seems to be a lot of different tickets, what can you suggest that will cover all the parks as well as value for money

Thanks in advance

FrogBlog Jan 19, 2016 at 11:11 a.m.

Hi Chris,

There is no one ticket that will cover all of these parks. If you know you want to visit Discovery Cove, it will include 14 days admission to SeaWorld and Aquatica. You could then add Universal and Disney tickets for the number of days you want to visit. For Disney, you will see more savings if you stay four or more days. Here are all of the ticket options:

Leap, you sure are friendly and helpful on all these questions :) So after reading several guides on your site, I will be ordering tix this weekend. We are a multi-generational family of 7, 3 tweenagers, will be in Orlando for 7 days the first week of spring break. Since your guides recommend staying in a single park on most crowded days and you have such great deals on the 5 for 4 WDW and Universal base 2+2, I think that might be our best option, that way we could possibly revisit parks we liked best. What do you think?

I would head to Universal on Jan. 10. You can get the 1 Day Park-to-Park and use our touring plan. The crowds should not be too bad, and you can do a lot. Hit Magic Kingdom the next day with the 1 day Magic Your Way ticket. You can see both of these tickets here.

We will be there next week and have a question on the My Way Tickets. If we buy a 3 Day Magic My Way Ticket does this allow us to enter into any one park for any day we choose? I understand that it is only for one park per day just wondering if we need to specify which park ahead of time?

Hi,

We are a party of 10 (ages: 70 (wheel chair), 67, 43, 39, 35, 33, 7, 4, 2, 1) visiting Orlando for the first time in November 2015. We arrive on the 25th and leave again for Ft Lauderdale on the 29th. We are thinking about visiting Magic Kingdom, Sea World and Kennedy Space Center.

- We don't know which dates to go where (not really sure about what would be the busiest day around Thanksgiving)?

- If any of the attractions is not suitable for the whole party (eg. wheelchair and if Kennedy Space Center or any of the other parks would be doable with the little ones?)

- Can you recommend any tickets or packages? Are there any discounts?

- Would parking two cars by the parks be tricky? Any recommendations? We will stay at Floridays resort.

- Would you plan "do nothing days" between the parks, because it could easily be too intense for children or would you fully plan the days we have allowed for Orlando area?

Thank you so much!

Best regards, Charlotte

FrogBlog Nov 2, 2015 at 8:46 a.m.

Hi Charlotte,

It's going to be so much fun for the whole group! All of the attractions are wheelchair friendly, so you shouldn't have to worry too much about that. We have more information about Disney's disability program and list of ride accommodations here. The Friday after Thanksgiving is the busiest days of that week, I would recommend doing Magic Kingdom on Saturday, the 28th. For SeaWorld, that might be a good option for the 26th or 27th. Your hotel offers shuttle service to Disney, Universal and SeaWorld, but you could park on-site at the parks. For Disney, if you are trying to avoid paying, you could park at Disney Springs, and take shuttles to the parks.

Here are all of the ticket options. We offer discounts on all of our tickets. Given your shorter amount of time, I would not plan do nothing days unless you just think you all will need more rest. You didn't mention when you arrive and depart, but that could also be factored into what you want to do.

Hoppy planning!

Reply
FrogBlog Nov 2, 2015 at 8:34 a.m.

Hi Nicole,

Definitely experience Magic Kingdom and Universal and one day for each. Then you can pick your last day. For Magic Kingdom, you just need the one day Magic Your Way ticket. For Universal, you could do a Park-to-Park ticket and experience the best in both parks, but this would depend on when you are going and how busy it is.

You can see all of our ticket options, including SeaWorld Orlando and Kennedy Space Center, here. One other cool experience you might want to consider is Discovery Cove. It would be a full day, but it is an amazing, tropical resort getaway that feels nothing like anything we've experienced in Orlando.

Hi Kumari,

I would recommend checking out our Crowd Calendar so you can see recommended parks by day to help plan your trip. Keep in mind that the second half of your visit is going to be VERY crowded. You don't mention whether you want to visit Universal and SeaWorld, but if you do, depending on how long you want to visit, the Flex Ticket could be a great option and covers up to 14 days. You could then buy Disney tickets for the number of days you plan to be in the parks. You will find Magic Your Way to be the most economical option.

I would greatly appreciate any suggestions.

FrogBlog Oct 28, 2015 at 10:51 a.m.

Hi Ben,

So sorry for the delay. Given your time frame and breakdown of ages, we'd recommend you spend at least five days at Disney and two at Universal. If you want to add Disney water parks, you should add at least one more day on to this and choose the Water Park Fun & More option. More fun options for your kids ages (and adults) would be Discovery Cove. All of your kids are old enough to enjoy the dolphin swim, and a beach day away from the hustle and bustle of the parks would be paradise. There also wet suits in case it's a little chilly, but November should still be fab weather-wise. With that ticket, you would also get access to SeaWorld and Aquatica for your length of stay, so if you did that you might skip the Disney water parks and opt instead to go to the SeaWorld parks and water park. Finally for your kids' ages, LEGOLAND is a great choice.

You can see all of these ticket options here.

Our family will be visiting WDW the last week in January. We have 4 kids ages 4-11. We will have 6 days to spend at the parks, but we are trying to decide if we need all 6 days, or if we can take 1 day to just relax at the hotel. If we have never been to WDW, how many days at each of the 4 parks do you recommend?

Reply
FrogBlog Oct 14, 2015 at 12:19 p.m.

Hi Erin,

I would plan at least one full day at every park, and two days for Magic Kingdom. You still won't see everything, but you can see a lot, especially during this time. You could do an additional day at Epcot, or save day 6 for another favorite.

Hi If I buy a 6 day Magic your Way ticket through you and then decide that I want to add an extra day when we are actually in Orlando, can I just add one extra day at that point for the same difference in price as a 6/7 day ticket is through you/Disney (i.e. just over $10 difference) or would I have to buy a new one day ticket (i.e. very expensive!!). How would I add the extra day - can I do this at my hotel even if my original ticket was purchased from you not Disney directly (we are staying in the Four Seasons which has a Disney Desk I think) or does it have to be at the park? I also wanted to ask if once I make Fastpass reservations I can change them if we decide to visit specific parks on different days than expected? (ie I will be using the crowd calendar to plan which park we visit on each of our days but if the children have a strong preference for a certain park we might end up changing which ones we spend 2 days at etc). Many many thanks.

Reply
FrogBlog Oct 14, 2015 at 11:45 a.m.

Hi Kate,

You can upgrade to a 7 day ticket in the park if you bought from us. You would need to do this at guest relations outside of the parks or at Disney Springs. Yes, you can modify your FastPass+ reservations, but keep in mind that if you're visiting during a busy time, and you make those changes the day of or a few days before, then reservations for the most popular attractions may be limited or gone.

Planning question Id love some help with - we are visiting WDW for 5 days in December. On one day of the 5 we would want to go to 2 different parks (one ticket used to access the Magic Kingdom in the evening just to see the parade and fireworks, visiting another park during the day) and it is cheaper for me to buy a 6 day ticket to use over the 5 days than to buy a 5 day hopper ticket. Would that be that allowed? Would I be allowed to use 2 separate daily base tickets to attend 2 different parks on one day? Would it still allow me to book fast passes on each ticket for that day? Please advise! Many thanks

Reply
FrogBlog Oct 14, 2015 at 9:51 a.m.

Hi David,

It's possible you could buy a 1 Day Park Hopper and a 4 Day Magic Your Way ticket to do what you are hoping to do, but you cannot buy a 6 day ticket and do what you are describing. You may find that going ahead and purchasing the 5 Day Park Hopper is more economical than the former.

Just to be sure, we probably wont go to water parks, just want to spend half day on seaworld because of the coaster there, whick everybody say its amazing. Even so the best ticket is the "Orlando FlexTicket™ Plus 2016" is thar correct? will it allow me to go to all orlando parks, plus universal parks, bush garden and sea world saving money comparing to buy each ticket apart? besides, would you recommend best days to go to each park? dont know if there is special days, events, or emptier days (best to enjoy coasters). What about fast passes? How does it work? should i buy or schedule fastpasses besides the ticket that i need to buy? ot it comes together? Many thanks in advance!!

Reply
FrogBlog Oct 2, 2015 at 2:31 p.m.

Hi Gabriel,

This is the best ticket. You can price each of the parks separately if you want to see how much you will be savings. Check out our Crowd Calendar for best days to visit. Overall, this is a good time to visit, although you will find more crowds over the weekend of MLK Day. FastPasses are exclusive to Disney, but you could use Universal Express or QuickQueue at Universal, SeaWorld and Busch Gardens. These are an additional charge, and overall I don't think you will need them. You can purchase them in park; the only time I would consider it is that holiday weekend.

In my math, would be only one day left to repeat a park, considering that i would be going to seaworld and animal kingdon at the same day. Am i able to go to downtown disney after a full day at the parks or its better to squeeze a night walk along with a not too demanding park? what about shopping? is it wasy to squeeze in someday or better to leave onde half day for that? does bush garden demand one full day? better to leave weekends for a special show or event or it depends? thanks

FrogBlog Dec 21, 2015 at 7:46 a.m.

Hi Gabriel,

I would not recommend SeaWorld and Animal Kingdom in the same day. SeaWorld is really a full-day park, and Animal Kingdom is usually not open late. I would plan a day at Animal Kingdom, and then that could be your Disney Springs (Downtown Disney) night. Busch Gardens definitely is a full day. I would try to visit it Monday-Thursday for lowest crowds so you can will have lesser waits for the coasters. Park hopping at Disney is up to you.

Your website has been extremely helpful and I’ve planned our days and was hoping you could look it over and tell us if it looks good or have ideas for anything that needs tweaking. We are on vacation for 2 weeks from Nov 5th to the 20th, here is day-to-day so far:

Nov 5th: arrive late at off-site hotel

Nov 6th: Magic Kingdom

Nov 7th: Magic Kingdom

Nov 8th: Animal Kingdom

Nov 9th: Hollywood Studios

Nov 10th: Aquatica

Nov 11th: Epcot-Future World

Nov 12th: Epcot-World Showcase

Nov 13th: Seaworld

Nov 14th: Busch Gardens

Nov 15th: Busch Gardens

Nov 16th: Wet ‘n Wild

Nov 17th: Universal Studios

Nov 18th: Island of Adventure

Nov 19th: Last day @ Disney (downtown Disney + tour of resorts + extra theme park day, possibly MK)

Mickey’s Very Merry Xmas Party

Nov 20th: Wizarding World of Harry Potter, Diagon Alley + Hogsmead

Flight departs at 8pm

We will be getting the 7-day Magic Your Way ticket as well as the Orlando Flex Plus ticket. Do you see any days we should switch around due to crowd levels, any theme parks that need more or less time? Any advice would be much appreciated, thanks for your time!

(P.S: I sent this via the Contact Us page but I'm pasting it here just in case that wasn't right. Thanks again!)

Hi Max,

You've come to the right place :) You've got a solid plan! I would just consider switching your Friday at SeaWorld and/or Monday at Wet 'n Wild for Busch Gardens, or at least have one of your week days be at Busch Gardens. During the off-season, this park will be less crowded on the weekday, and with so many coasters and other thrill rides, it would be a better match. Disney's Animal Kingdom typically isn't a full day, and it closes earlier than the other parks, so you could plan on visiting Downtown Disney that night and save your free day on the 19th for touring the resorts' holiday decorations.

Hi there. We have 2 days to spend in Orlando in October before we move onto another destination. . We plan to go back in the future for a longer visit but I'd like my kids to experience Disney as they are 7 and 9 yrs old.

Do you recommend 2 days at the Magic Kingdom? Or 1 day there and another day in another park? I should also add that I will be a single parent for one of these days (my husband will fly in for day 2) should that effect your

decision.

I haven't been to Disney as an adult and have been asking friends that have but it seems everyone has different ideas and itineraries. Thanks so much in advance! Catherine

Reply
FrogBlog Sep 10, 2015 at 11:32 a.m.

Hi Catherine,

I would devote at least one full day to Magic Kingdom and two days wouldn't be a bad idea. You don't mention your dates, but if they fall on the night of Mickey's Not So Scary Halloween Party, that would be a fun option for you all as well. I would lean toward Epcot if you don't want to do two days at Magic Kingdom. You could also get Park Hoppers, which would allow you to hit a couple of parks that second day, but it is more expensive. As far as single parenting in the park, it should be OK. I've single parented in the park a time or two! Where you sometimes run into issues is if one child wants to ride something that the other child does not (such as a scary ride), and the one who wants to ride doesn't want to ride alone.

Let us know what you decide!

Hi Catherine,

You can't beat the monorail hotels for proximity to Magic Kingdom. If you are just going to Magic Kingdom and Epcot for the two days, I would say stay on the monorail if you can afford it. You can take the resort monorail to Ticket and Transportation Center and then transfer to the monorail to Epcot. The pool at the Polynesian will likely be the most fun for the kiddos. Hilton Bonnet Creek and Waldorf are, of course terrific hotels, in a great location close to Epcot, Downtown Disney and Disney's Hollywood Studios, but not that close to Magic Kingdom.

Does Disney announce before they increase ticket prices? We just bought our plane tickets and I would love to hold off on the Disney tickets a few months. However, if there are any price increases expected, I could buy them now.

Is it correct that we can buy our Disney passes now and then add on the Water Park option later if we would like? We are going in December and it will depend on the weather if we want to go to the water parks. If we buy a basic Disney pass now, can we go on the computer if there is a nice day and add the water park option and go that day?

Also, if we buy an 8 day pass, could you increase it to a 10 day pass at a later date or would you have to go back and buy new passes if you wanted more days?

Thank you so much! Your website has been very helpful!

There is no announcement before the price increase from Disney, typically these happen in spring or summer. You always have the option of upgrading your ticket, but once you purchase you would need to do this at guest relations at the parks.

Hi Emilio,

Unfortunately, the no-expire option was discontinued back a couple of months ago. The only ticket type that would work in this case is an annual pass.

Hi.. I'm and my brother plan going disney world From july25 till august 1. We want to do all the parks,the water park and seaworld too. Which ticket do you recommend???

Thanks

Hi there,

You didn't specifically mention Disney and Universal, but if you want to do these parks, I would suggest park hoppers for Disney and the park-to-park ticket for Universal. Depending on how many days you wanted to spend at Universal, SeaWorld and both of their water parks, the Orlando FlexTicket might be more economical. You would need to buy separate Disney tickets.

Hoppy planning!

Hi,

If we know we will spend full days at Magic Kingdom, is it possible, and does it make sense to get a 2 day base ticket and 3 day park hopper?

Reply
FrogBlog May 8, 2015 at 9:50 a.m.

Hi Jenn,

You should do the math, but it may very well be cheaper to just do the park hopper for five days. You can, however, purchase them separately if you'd like.

Hello,

My friend and I are going to Disney World in May for 5 days. We want to do all the parks including the water park. We also would like to do the pass hopper as well. We are thinking of doing a different park each day. What would you suggest we get for tickets?

Also, can you explain to me what the fastpass is? Is that something different than the park hopper?

Thank you in advance!

Hi Rachael,

FastPass is Disney's reservation system that lets you pre-book certain attractions. Park hoppers are tickets that allow you to visit more than one park per day. Your best bet would be the 4 Day Park Hopper + Water Park Fun & More.

I just received the 9 tickets I ordered (7 adults, 2 kids) for our vacation in June. Do I print my name on all 9 tickets or do I print each person's name on their ticket? I paid for all 9 tickets.

We are a family of 2 adults and 2 children aged 14 and 15. We are staying in Orlando from approx. 27 July to 15 August 2015, we would like to vist Disney (several parcs) and Universal (studios and adventure), and probably also Sea World.

Hi Henk,

Yes, we do ship to the Netherlands. I would definitely recommend you purchase the Orlando Flex Ticket (or Flex Ticket Plus if you want to visit Busch Gardens Tampa), which includes 14 day admission to the Universal and SeaWorld parks and waterparks for a terrific price. You would then need to decide how many days you want to visit Disney and whether you want park hoppers or not. Let us know what you decide!

Which tickets do you recommend ? And is it possible to send the tickets to Belgium ? How many days does it takes for delivery to Belgium, knowing that we leave Belgium on May 9? Thanks in advance for your reply.

FrogBlog Apr 16, 2015 at 7:29 a.m.

Hi Stefaan,

Yes, we ship to Belgium! Delivery is currently running 12 days, so you do have time to get them delivered to you. Will you be visiting Kennedy during that same week? That would affect which tickets to buy for Disney and Universal. You can see our Orlando ticket options here. I would consider Park Hoppers at Disney and the Park-to-Park ticket at Universal if your visit to Kennedy falls during that week, so you can experience the best of all parks.

Hoppy planning!

Hi Michelle,

Our Orlando ticket options are listed here. To visit Epcot only, you would need a Magic Your Way ticket. At Universal, you have the option of a base ticket or park-to-park ticket, which would get you in both Universal Studios Florida and Universal's Islands of Adventure.

Hi Paul,

If you are only going to visit Magic Kingdom, you would simply purchase the 1-day Magic Kingdom ticket. For Universal, I would recommend the 1-Day Universal Park-to-Park ticket. Keep in mind, the more days you visit, the lower the per day cost of admission.

Hi,

My family and I are going to Disney in Sept. We would like to spend 4 days at disney, 1 at Islands of Adventure just to see Hogwarts and 1 day at Sea World. What would you suggest for best option for buying tickets?

Reply
FrogBlog Feb 19, 2015 at 2:29 p.m.

Hi Jennifer,

The big question is whether you want to hop while you're in the parks. That is, do you want to visit more than one WDW park per day and would you want to visit the water parks? If so, I'd recommend the Park Hopper or Park Hopper with the Fun & More option. I know you want to see Hogwarts, but Diagon Alley is just as fabulous. You could do the Universal Park to Park ticket and see both for your one day at Universal.

Hope this helps!

Hi Char,

You can get Park Hoppers and visit both the parks, or all four parks, in one day. The parking fee is $17 per day. If you visit another park that same day, just show your receipt and you won't need to pay twice.

My family will be visiting Orlando from April 25 to May 2 and spending 2 days at Universal and 1 day at Seaworld. Will we need to purchase the Express Pass to best experience the parks during this time of the year?

Also, not sure if you can answer this question ,but my husband is a larger individual 6'5", 300 lbs., and I'm concerned the Express Pass may be a waste of money and he won't be able to get on many of the rides.

Thanks!

FrogBlog Jan 21, 2015 at 11:02 a.m.

Hi Laurie,

Crowds are expected to be medium-sized during your visit. If you follow our touring advice by arriving ahead of opening and hitting most of the popular attractions first thing, you should be in good shape. But it's ultimately your call on whether you want to have to wait at all, and the passes definitely help with that.

As far as your husband is concerned, Universal offers test seats outside of its attractions so he can see if he will fit comfortably. Because of different body shapes, it's hard to say with certainty what he would or would not be able to ride.

Here are the rides that have test seats available:

Dragon Challenge™

Harry Potter and the Forbidden Journey™

Dudley Do-Right’s Ripsaw Falls®

The Incredible Hulk Coaster®

Doctor Doom’s Fearfall®

Hollywood Rip Ride Rockit®

Revenge of the Mummy®

Harry Potter and the Escape from Gringotts™

Hi Julie,

One of the best values for a longer stay is the Orlando FlexTicket, which includes unlimited 14-day admission to Universal's Islands of Adventure, Universal Studios Florida, Wet 'n' Wild, SeaWorld Orlando and Aquatica. For just a little more, you could add Busch Gardens in there too with the Orlando FlexTicket Plus.

You would still need to purchase separate tickets for Epcot at Disney World, but the other ticket covers the other major parks.
