It's no secret that Disney World tickets have gotten quite expensive over the years. It seems like the House of Mouse has taken note of guest complaints about skyrocketing admission prices in recent years, though, because Disney just announced a much more affordable ticket option. If you don't mind missing out on rope drop at the parks, then this might just be the ticket option for you. Here's everything you need to know about saving some money while visiting Disney World.
The new Disney World ticket is called Mid-Day Magic and it's available for all four of the Florida theme parks. Guests can purchase Mid-Day Magic tickets for as little as $74, while regular tickets now cost $125. So, what's the catch? Well, if you purchase Mid-Day Magic as opposed to a full day ticket, you will have to wait until 12:00pm to enter the parks. The parks usually open at 8:00am or 9:00am, depending on the time of year, so you'll only lose three or four hours of park time. Not bad, right?
While this option won't work for the rope-drop-to-close kind of Disney guest, it's a solid option for guests who don't want to spend every minute of the day in Magic Kingdom or Epcot. Many Disney guests don't arrive to the parks until noon, anyway, so this is a great choice for the late-start guests to save a few extra bucks during their vacation. Instead of hitting the parks as early possible to be the first person on Splash Mountain for the day, you can enjoy a delicious breakfast at your resort or enjoy a swim in the pool.
The best part of Mid-Day Magic? You can upgrade these, as well, and add the Park Hopper option to the ticket. For those wondering what 'Park Hopper' means it simply allows guests to visit multiple parks in one day for a little more money. If you're starting at noon, though, you might want to skip the mid-day hotel nap and power through right on through the fireworks to really get your money's worth.
