Magic Your Way

The most common Disney World ticket is the Magic Your Way ticket. This pass entitles you to one entry to one park per person per day for the length of the pass. These passes expire 14 days after the first use or after you the number of days are used.


Disney World ticket prices become more economical the longer you stay. For example, a 3-day Magic Your Way ticket costs $274.00 for an adult. A 7-day ticket costs $324.00. That's only 50 more dollars for 4 days.


The moral to this story is take longer vacations.

Biometric Scan

For the last several years, Disney has required all pass users to match their fingerprints with their passes. (This is another reason you never should buy passes off of Ebay.) It's a good thing to make sure you have your own ticket.


Don't worry if you and the missus swap tickets. The fingerprints of tickets that were purchased at the same time will transfer.


Dad's Bottom Line

Disney World ticket prices have steadily increased ever since Uncle Walt got rid of the ticket books. It's a natural thing. Disney usually has a couple of price increases every year, so if you have made plans for a Disney World vacation, it's probably a good thing to go ahead and buy your tickets.
