Four separate theme parks make up Walt Disney World, outside of Orlando, FL. The Magic Kingdom[1] reflects the original Disneyland. Epcot Center[2] is known for the World Showcase area, which includes foods, costumes and sights from around the globe. Disney's Hollywood Studios[3] highlights The American Idol Experience, Toy Story Mania and Star Tours. Disney's Animal Kingdom[4] hosts more than giraffes--from roller coasters to musicals.

Typical costs:

  • One-day and one-park tickets[5] to each of the four parks cost $85 for visitors 10 years old and up, and $79 for children aged 3-9, or about $330 for a family of four with two younger children. Children under 3 are admitted free.
  • A single-day ticket with a Park Hopper pass, which allows entry into multiple parks per day, costs $120 for adults and $114 for children, or about $470 for a family of four.
  • Two-day single-park tickets[6] cost $168 for adults and $155 for children, or about $650 for four.
  • A two-day Park Hopper pass costs $112 per day for adults and $105 per day for children or about $870 for a family of four.
  • Parking[7] is $14 for cars and motorcycles and included for guests of Disney hotels. Check with hotel registration, as even some non-Disney hotels offer free theme-park parking.

What should be included:
  • All regular park rides and shows are included in the price of admission.
  • For families traveling with very young children, Disney operates a Baby Center[8] at each park to provide a quiet place for nursing, warming a bottle or changing a diaper.
Additional costs:
  • From corn dogs to beef filets, dining prices vary as much as menu options at Epcot Center[9] , Magic Kingdom[10] and Hollywood Studios[11] with food cart meals starting around $6 per person or $24 for a family of four, counter service at under $15 per person or $60 for four, and fine dining from $36-$60 per person or about $200 per family. Quick dining at the Animal Kingdom[12] costs about $15 per person, or less than $60 for a family of four. Casual sit-down meal options range $15-$36 per person or about $105 per family.
Discounts:
  • The longer the park stay, the greater the daily discount. Three-day Park Hopper tickets are $96 for adults and $90 for children per day or about $1,110 per family. The same Park Hopper passes purchased for a 10-day visit are $1,350 per family, breaking down to $35 for adults and $33 per child, per day.
  • An Annual Pass[13] costs $553-$691 for adults and $509-$637 for children, depending on the level of blackout dates chosen.
  • Florida residents[14] save a few dollars with single-day tickets at $81 for adults and $76 for children.
  • Military discounts[15] currently include a 4-day Magic Your Way pass at $138 plus tax with a valid ID. With a military ID no tax is charged.
  • AAA or CAA vacation package benefits[16] may include a 10-20% savings at various resort locations, preferred parking when available, room discounts and Disney dollars, along with ticket and room combination discounts.
