Magic Your Way!

I often remind people that it is better to book a package deal when you book a Disney vacation rather than trying to do an a la carte version. In an earlier post we mentioned that it is truly more cost effective to stay on site. I know some would disagree or would argue about the bonuses of renting a house or condo or doing a time share, but for the sake of my sanity (and my site!) we're going to proceed as if you are staying on Disney property.

When you go to book your reservation, you will see a "Magic Your Way" ticket option. The best way to explain this to you is to quote from a favorite website that I visit often when planning a Disney vacation, and that is the direct source,

The Magic Your Way Package includes a Resort stay at a Walt Disney World Resort® and a Magic Your Way Base Ticket that gives each member of your travel party entry to one Theme Park every ticket day.

And there's more. You can customize Tickets for your travel party with options that let you visit multiple Theme Parks each day, include entry to other Parks and attractions, and allow you to save any unused days on your ticket for future visits - so you can enjoy the Disney experience that best suits your preferences and budget.


Staying at a Disney Resort is the best and most comfortable way to enjoy a Walt Disney World ® vacation. With a Magic Your Way package, you can tailor your vacation so that you enjoy your visit, your way. And remember: The longer you play, the less you pay per day with an affordable Magic Your Way package.
Select from Value, Moderate, Deluxe and Deluxe Villa Resorts - there's a category for every budget:

  • Value Resorts - Enjoy colorful, whimsical places that are big on fun but small on cost.
  • Moderate Resorts - Escape to enchanting, wonderfully affordalbe locales.
  • Deluxe Resorts - Experience the ultimate in Disney luxury, style and service.
  • Deluxe Villa Resorts - Relax in comfortable accommodations with all the conveniences of home.
  • Disney's Fort Wilderness Resort & Campground - Stay in secluded campsites for tents and all types of RVs.


A Magic Your Way Base Ticket with choice of ticket length from 1 to 10 days (one Theme Park admission per day). Add-on options for this ticket include:

  • Park Hopper® Option - visit more than 1 Theme Park on the same day.
  • Water Park Fun & More Option - includes a certain number of "Fun Visits" based on the length of the Ticket. Each "Fun Visit" allows entry into one of the following: Disney's Typhoon Lagoon, Disney's Blizzard Beach, DisneyQuest®, Disney's Oak Trail Golf Course or Disney's Wide World of Sports® . (Subject to seasonal or weather closures. Age restrictions may apply for access to certain facilities.)
  • No Expiration Option - unused Theme Park Days and unused "Fun Visits" never expire so they may be used on a return visit.

Special Features:

Everyone in the room must be on the same package and ticket options. All tickets and options must used within 14 days of first use, unless the No Expiration Option (unused days never expire) is purchased. All tickets and options are nontransferable and exclude activities/events separately priced.

Now this is just the BASE package. You can add dining plans, park hoppers, water parks, and more on to this plan but really, this is a great way to start your vacation planning.
