What types of Magic Your Way vacation packages are there?

You will always be able to select one of three types of packages:

  • The Magic Your Way Package - Includes a Disney Resort stay at a Value, Moderate, Deluxe or Disney Vacation Club Resort and a Magic Your Way Base Ticket that gives each member of your travel party entry to one Theme Park every ticket day. You can then add additional ticket options.
  • The Magic Your Way With Dining Packages - Once you've created the Magic Your Way package that best meets your needs, add the Disney Dining Plan and choose the meals you and your family want for up to 30% savings. Dining options include over 100 participating counter-service, table-service and Signature Dining Disney restaurants.
  • The Magic Your Way Premium and Platinum Packages - Discover all the delights of Walt Disney World® Resort with this outstanding package of Resort Stay, the Magic Your Way Ticket with Park Hopper® Option and Water Park Fun & More Options*, the Disney Dining Plan, plus recreation and entertainment. Please note that the length of the Magic Your Way Ticket with Park Hopper® and Water Park Fun & More Options* with this package must be the number of resort nights plus 1 day - for example, a 4-night stay with a 5-day ticket.
* Water Parks subject to seasonal or weather closures. Age restrictions may apply for access to certain facilities.

What does the Magic Your Way Base Ticket include?

With Magic Your Way Tickets, you can select how many days you want tickets for - keeping in mind that the per-day price gets lower the longer you play. The basic ticket is a Magic Your Way Base Ticket, which gives entry to one Theme Park a day every day of your ticket, for each member of your travel party.

You can select three exciting Options to customize each ticket to meet the needs and preferences of your entire travel party or, when purchasing your tickets without accommodations, you can select different tickets for each member of your travel party:

  • Add the Park Hopper® Option to your ticket to come and go through multiple theme parks on the same day as many times as you like.
  • Include the Water Park Fun & More Option* (formerly the Magic Plus Pack Option) to add admission to your choice of other Disney excitement like the Water Parks, DisneyQuest® Indoor Interactive Theme Park and select rounds of golf.
  • Select the No Expiration Option to ensure any unused tickets days are available for your next visit.

Again, when purchasing tickets only, you can arrange for all the members of your travel party to have the same tickets, or for members of your travel party who may have different preferences or schedules to have individually customized tickets.

* Water Parks subject to seasonal or weather closures. Age restrictions may apply for access to certain facilities.

Is there an expiration date on the tickets in my package?

Magic Your Way Base Tickets expire 14 days from their first use. However, when you add the No Expiration Option to your ticket, you're free to come back and take advantage of unused days at any time in the future.

Are tickets transferable?

Please note that all Magic Your Way Tickets are nontransferable and must be used by the same person on any and all days. The person who uses the ticket for the very first time must use the ticket for its entirety. Any tickets that are transferred are in violation of this restriction and are invalid for admission.

Can new tickets be upgraded once they're purchased?

Yes, the new Magic Your Way tickets can be upgraded before your vacation begins, or within the 14-day window you have to use the ticket after it's first used. Upgrades include extending the ticket length (i.e., adding more days) or adding any combination of Options: the Park Hopper® Option, the Water Park Fun & More Option* and/or the No Expiration Option. * Water Parks subject to seasonal or weather closures. Age restrictions may apply for access to certain facilities.

Can I upgrade an existing ticket?

In general, you can upgrade to any type of ticket - provided the new ticket is of equal or greater value than the old ticket - by simply paying the difference. However, no refunds will be issued if the new ticket is of lesser value.

Is there a ticket that will allow me to visit the Water Parks?

The Water Park Fun & More Option is a great way to add more Disney fun beyond the Theme Parks. This option provides a certain number of visits based on the length of the ticket purchased. For each visit, you can choose one of the following: Disney's Typhoon Lagoon Water Park, Disney's Blizzard Beach Water Park, DisneyQuest® Indoor Interactive Theme Park, Disney's Oak Trail Golf Course or Disney's Wide World of Sports® Complex. (Water Parks subject to seasonal or weather closures.)

Is there a ticket that will allow me to visit more than one Park every day?

Yes. If you purchase the Park Hopper® Option, you can come and go through multiple Theme Parks on the same day as many times as you like.

What happens if I don't use all the days on my ticket?

Magic Your Way Base Tickets expire 14 days from their first use. However, when you add the No Expiration Option to your ticket, you're able to come back and take advantage of unused days at any time in the future.

How do I redeem my Magic Your Way vacation package features?

Most Magic Your Way vacation package components are fulfilled upon check-in at your Walt Disney World® Resort Hotel. You will either receive a printed voucher or use your MagicBand to redeem meals, recreation and other package features. For the Magic Your Way Plus Dining Package and the Magic Your Way Premium Package, a voucher may be mailed with your travel documents.

Can I get my tickets and other package components if I arrive before check-in?

Yes. Walt Disney World® Resort Hotels will issue your Magic Your Way vacation package and purchased options when you arrive. If you take advantage of Disney's Magical Express service, you can enjoy complimentary ground transportation to and from the Orlando airport - and we'll take you directly to the Theme Park or recreation facility of your choice and then deliver your luggage to your room.

How does the Disney Dining Plan work?

Use your meals and snacks in any order and in any amount throughout your stay until your total is completed. For example, on the day of arrival your travel party of four could use four counter-service meals, and then on day two your party could use four table-service meals, four counter-service meals, and two snacks. You can continue using meals any way you like for the rest of your stay until the number of meals allotted are completed.

Present your MagicBand to your server prior to ordering, so your server knows to charge meals to your Disney Dining Plan. Applicable taxes are already prepaid and included, however, gratuity is not. Your meal usage will be tracked electronically to your room reservation. Each time you redeem meals or snacks from your Disney Dining Plan, your server or cashier will provide you with a receipt showing your remaining balance.

How can I get the Disney Dining Plan?

When you stay at a Disney Resort and purchase a Magic Your Way Base Package (additional options available), you will always be able to select the Magic Your Way Plus Dining Package, which allows you to add the Disney Dining Plan and choose the meals you and your family want for up to 30% savings.
