Are all the activities included in the ticket price?
"Most activities are included in the price of tickets, right?
I know I plan to purchase the princess for a day. Are there any other activities that I should plan cost extra from the admission ticket? It looks like there are 2 locations for the Bibbidi Bobbidi Boutique- what are the pros and cons of selecting either location. THANK YOU!"
Almost all activities are included

As a frequent visitor to Walt Disney World this question kind of took me by surprise. I just assume that everyone knows how things at WDW work.
You are right in saying that most of the activities at Walt Disney World are included in the price. In fact, it's hard to find things that aren't.
The things you pay extra for are things like Bibbidi Bobbidi Boutique, Pirates League, and the Harmony Barber Shop which I don't consider activities. Those are extras.
As for daily activities, parades, shows, rides, etc. they are all included in the price of admission. There are a couple of add-ons that cost extra, like the Mickey's Not So Scary Halloween Party
, Mickey's Very Merry Christmas Party
and the dessert parties that cost extra but they are "extras". They aren't part of the daily activities.
Early Morning Magic and Disney After Hours are both programs where you can pay extra to get into the park early and ride some rides. They are offered on selected days and are somewhat pricey. These are not to be confused with Extra Magic Hours which is free for Disney Hotel guests.
Oh, there is one activity we love that does cost extra. That's the Frontierland Shootin' Gallery. It costs a dollar for 20 shots, but it's something we do on every trip.
Basically, you can pretty much spend your whole vacation at Walt Disney World and not spend any extra money on activities. Other than the Shootin' Gallery, I don't remember the last time I spent extra money on Disney activities.
As to Bibbidi Bobbidi Boutique. There really isn't any difference between the two locations except location. You'll probably want the Magic Kingdom location unless there's a reason for you to head over to Disney Springs.
Dad's Bottom Line
The bottom line is most visitors never pay anything extra for daily activities in the parks. It's all included in your tickets. Have a great time.
