You might want to spend a day or two at Disney Springs – Photo by Wayne Wood
Gale, I didn’t really know the answer to this one, so I asked, my buddies at Destinations to Travel to see what they come up with an answer, and here’s what they said. This one comes from Chris Boyer, another one of their great travel agents. Chris is a great guy. He does a great job.
Anyway, Chris says, “The Walt Disney World multi-day tickets are a great way to get the most bang for your buck.” This is going to get a little complicated because there’s dollars involved. “While a single-day ticket ranges from $99 to $119, a 10-day ticket is only $44 a day. To put it simply, the more days you add to your tickets, the cheaper it is each day. Multi-day tickets range from 2 to 10 days with all the days on your ticket needing to be used within 14 days of your arrival. The maximum number of days allowed on the Magic Your Way tickets is 10 days.”
“I reached out to Disney customer service. They said they are unable to extend the ticket past 10 days. In order to add those two extra days, you’re going to need to actually purchase a two-day ticket. Ten-day base ticket is $440 per adult. With a Park Hopper it would be $515. The extra two-day ticket would be $199 for adult with the Park Hopper being $259. That brings your cost for 12 days to $639 for an adult base ticket or $774, for a Park Hopper. Annual passes are just $779.
If you were going to exchange your tickets, you might consider an annual pass because the annual passes offer discounts on rooms, on meals, on all kinds of things, souvenirs. In fact, Disney just announced that the annual pass discount that’s been 20% through the summer, one of the things that they’re trying to do to get people to come into the parks, that annual pass discount of 20% has been extended through the end of the year.”
There’s a lot of good reasons to look at an annual pass if you’re somewhere close to that annual pass cost number. It’s not a given that you’d want to upgrade to an annual pass, but you need to do some math. If you’re going to be there for 10 days, you’re going to find significant savings and discounts with an annual pass.
Dad’s Bottom Line
The bottom line is ten days is the maximum is the maximum for a Disney ticket. You cannot add if you’ve got a ten-day ticket already. You can upgrade that ticket to an annual pass. That money will be applied to the annual pass. You’re not going to have to buy it separately. What you’ve paid so far will be applied to the annual passes. Annul passes are Park Hoppers. They have Park Hopping. They do include discounts for hotel rooms and meals and all kinds of stuff, and you can go back to Disney World sometime during the year, and then you’ve got your tickets already.
PS. This applies to the Magic Your Way tickets for US and Canada guests. If you live in the UK you do have a 14-day ticket available, but this person isn’t eligible for that ticket.
