Walt Disney World Tickets

Make dreams come true four uniquely themed parks, each with its own special version of Disney magic! Fantasy becomes real and reality fantastic as you relive childhood memories and create new ones.

Then hit the beach, slides and surf of Disney's two watery playgrounds. Splash into a world of fun and thrilling attractions for big kahunas and shore huggers of all ages.

The Fast Pass service offered at Walt Disney World Resort is easy to use, and cuts the wait time on the most popular attractions. This way, you spend less time waiting in line and more time enjoying the many attractions that the Theme Parks have to offer. Because it included in your Walt Disney World Theme Park admission, all you need is your ticket!

Planning a Walt Disney World vacation can be a bit overwhelming, especially if this will be your first time visiting Mickey Mouse. Just remember that you are not alone. Even the most seasoned Disney vacationer can become overwhelmed with all of the planning required for an enjoyable Disney vacation. Everything from selecting park tickets to accommodations and dining to recreational activities are part of the planning process.

The "Disney" seasons will have a big impact on when you plan to visit. The best times to go are in September, early October, the weeks between Thanksgiving and Christmas and the first few weeks of the New Year. If you do not want a lot of strangers sharing your vacation, avoid going during the summer, over major holidays and during any school breaks.

Spend less time waiting in line and more time enjoying the attractions!

Magic Kingdom® Park

Fairytale dreams come true for children of all ages at Magic Kingdom® Park. Delight in classic attractions, enchanting fireworks, musical parades and beloved Disney Characters across 6 whimsical lands. See fantasy become a reality as you explore Adventureland, Frontierland, Liberty Square, Fantasyland—open while undergoing the largest expansion in Magic Kingdom history!—Tomorrowland and Main Street, U.S.A areas. Zoom through space, become a swashbuckling pirate and watch fireworks light up the sky over Cinderella Castle.

Prepare yourself for heavy crowds throughout most of the year at Magic Kingdom. Because there is so much to do and this park is the busiest, make plans to spend two full days at the park to ensure you see everything without feeling rushed.

Table service restaurants throughout Disney tend to be busy and those at Magic Kingdom are the busiest. Especially when dining with the Disney Princesses. Make your Advance Dining Reservations 180 days before your arrival. Be on the phone a few minutes before 7 a.m. to ensure you get through and get the dining options you want.

If driving, arrive at the Ticket and Transportation Center (TTC) one hour before opening. This will give you plenty of time to get from the parking lot to the TTC. Take the "resort" monorail to the park's entrance. This monorail makes a few stops, but the lines to board it are shorter.

Disney's FastPass+ is a lifesaver at this park. It will help reduce wait times for must-see attractions, including the Haunted Mansion, Pirates of the Caribbean, Buzz Lightyear's Space Ranger Spin, Big Thunder Mountain and Space Mountain.

The best parade viewing spots are those on the curbs along Main Street U.S.A., but they can get a bit crowded. If you are looking for a less crowded area, head to Frontierland. No matter where you choose to sit, find a spot at least 30 minutes before the parade begins.

Disney's Hollywood Studios®

Movie magic comes to life at Disney's Hollywood Studios, awash in the glitz and glamour of Hollywood's Golden Age. Step into the action with attractions based on blockbuster movies and top TV shows, and delight in exciting entertainment that puts you center stage. With the vibrancy of a bustling movie set, this park features 8 sections: Hollywood Boulevard, Echo Lake, Sunset Boulevard, Streets of America, Commissary Lane, Pixar Place, Mickey Avenue and Animation Courtyard areas.

Many of the attractions at Disney's Hollywood Studios are inside and the entrances are close together, making it the best park to visit on a rainy day. Not everyone realizes this, so when it starts to rain they leave the park. Which is why you should stay.

Get the most out of your FastPass+ by reserving Toy Story Mania! for immediately after the park opens. Then, before the park gets crowded, head straight to Rock'n'Roller Coaster and Tower of Terror. On a good day lines should still be short at this time. If not, use the single rider line for Rock'n'Roller Coaster or wait until about an hour before closing when crowds start to thin.

Fanstasmic! is the park's most popular show and you should make plans to arrive at least one hour before show time. There are places to get a drink and snack inside, or you can grab a meal at one of Hollywood Boulevard's quick service restaurants before entering. If there are two shows, plan to attend the last one, which will give you more time in the park while a majority of guests are at the first showing.

Epcot®

Discover exciting attractions, enchanting international pavilions and award-winning fireworks. Celebrating the human spirit, Epcot® has 2 distinct realms: Future World, which features technological innovations, and World Showcase, which shares with Guests the culture and cuisine of 11 countries: Mexico, Norway, China, Germany, Italy, the United States, Japan, Morocco, France, United Kingdom and Canada.

The best place to enter Epcot® is through the International Gateway. You can walk or ride a Friendship Boat from Disney's Hollywood Studios, Disney's BoardWalk Resort, Disney's Yacht and Beach Club Resorts and Disney's Swan and Dolphin. At opening, this entrance has shorter lines and puts you in the back of the park which is less crowded this time of day.

Enjoy the little things at Epcot®, including Innovations East and West. Other unexpected treasures include Turtle Talk with Crush and Bruce's Sub House, both offering fun, interactive learning opportunities for guests. Kidcot Stations are located throughout Epcot, offering places for kids to be creative and learn about other cultures. However, learning at Epcot® is not just for the kids. Talk to Cast Members around the World Showcase and learn how to say "Hello" and "Good-bye" in their native tongues.

Skip a sit down meal at Epcot® and make plans to eat your way around the World Showcase. Must-eat snacks include chocolate mousse (France), shaved ice (Japan), churros (Mexico) and pretzel bread (Norway). If you want to have a table service meal, the best restaurant is Le Cellier or if you are looking for the Princesses you can find them at Auskerhaus.

The top IllumiNations viewing spots include the trail between the United Kingdom and Canada, the Sushi Bar (Japan), in front of Norway and Cantina de San Angel (Mexico). However, everyone knows about these spots, so make sure to claim your viewing spot at least 30 minutes before the show, if not sooner.

Disney's Animal Kingdom® Theme Park

Encounter exotic animals and exciting adventures at Disney's Animal Kingdom® Theme Park, the largest animal theme park in the world. Home to more than 1,700 animals across 250 species, the park reflects Walt Disney's dedication to conservation and is committed to animal care, education and research. Explore 6 enthralling lands: Oasis, Discovery Island, Africa, Rafiki's Planet Watch, Asia and DinoLand, U.S.A. areas.

Start your day off with breakfast at the Rainforest Café before visiting Disney's Animal Kingdom® Theme Park. When the park opens enter through the gift shop where lines are shorter. Upon entering, head straight to Kilimanjaro Safari, because at this time lines will be shorter and the animals will be more active. Ask to ride in the back rows of the vehicle where your view will not be obstructed.

Ride Expedition Everest multiple times by using both FastPass+ and the single rider line back-to-back. It is definitely a ride to enjoy more than once during your visit.

The best place to enjoy the parade is from the area near the entrance to Kilimanjaro Safari. The parade passes by this area twice, offering you multiple opportunities to see your favorite characters.

Take time to explore the different walkways throughout the park. Some of these walkways will take you to see exotic animals not available anywhere else in the park. Plus, you will have the opportunity to talk with Cast Members about the animals and their habitats.

Disney's Blizzard Beach Water Park

Disney legend has it that after a freak winter storm blanketed the area with snow, Florida's first ski resort was born. When temperatures returned to normal, the powdery snow turned to slippery slush. Slalom courses, bobsled and toboggan runs became downhill waterslides. The chair lift carried swimmers instead of skiers. The ski jump became the tallest, fastest waterslide in the nation.

You are invited to what has become Disney's Blizzard Beach, the most slushy, slippery, exhilarating beach water park anywhere!

Arrive at the water parks early (15-30 minutes before opening) to guarantee you find the seat you want. The best spot at Blizzard Beach is to the far left of the wave pool near the Warming Hut, which puts you close to everything, including food and restrooms.

Disney's Blizzard Beach is best known for its water thrill rides, which are very popular. Enjoy Summit Plummet, Downhill Double Dipper and the Chair Lift early in the day while lines are shorter. Then plan to spend the remainder of the day enjoying the pools and relaxing, until crowds start to thin again around 2 p.m.

Disney's Typhoon Lagoon Water Park

Escape to Disney's Typhoon Lagoon Water Park for a storm of fun in the sun! Snorkel with sharks, stingrays and tropical fish in the coral reef. Plunge down rushing rapids, sunbathe on the sandy beach and glide down the lazy Not on a relaxing raft ride. After an epic typhoon hurled surfboards into palm trees and tossed boats like toys, the storm-soaked Mount Mayday became a topsy-turvy oasis of water-filled adventure!

Typhoon Lagoon has better theming than Blizzard Beach, an amazing wave pool and a shark reef (definitely a must-see). Before arriving, take a look at the park's map to determine where you plan to spend a majority of your day. This is the area where you should try to find a seat near. Consider renting a cabana which will guarantee you reserved seating for the entire day.

Complimentary life jackets are available near the wave pool and should be worn by less experienced swimmers. Life jackets go fast, so make sure to grab them upon arrival.
