Ticket Options

There are tons of options when it comes to purchasing tickets. You will need tickets to enter any of the four theme parks, as well as the water parks. To make sure you get the most out of your ticket purchase, read up on: Disney 101: Ticket Options. If you have a “package”, this will include your resort accommodations (in a Disney World resort) and your park tickets. You will still need to choose between park hopper tickets and “one park per day” tickets.

Disney Dining Plans

These three little words can cause a WHOLE LOT of confusion! Don’t let it confuse you! There are three options when it comes to Dining Plans, each one offering more than the other. Find out which one is right for your Disney vacation! Disney 101: The Disney Dining Plans.
