Price for a 1 day Disney World ticket

The Fine Print

All tickets and options must be used within 14 days of first use.

All tickets are nonrefundable and nontransferable.

Tickets exclude activities and events separately priced.

Prices are subject to change without notice.

Age restrictions may apply for access to certain facilities.

Can you purchase a 1-day ticket at a discount?

Time share promotions often give away park tickets, but this is sometimes questionable.  Buying tickets on eBay or Craigslist is certainly questionable, as you never really know what you will receive. Ticket prices that seem too good to be true… probably are.

I want to go to Disney World

Nine Cheapskate Tips to Celebrate a Birthday at Walt Disney World for FREE!

The old Disney FASTPASS machines have now been removed, replaced with the new FastPass+ system, where you are only allowed three FastPasses per day and for only one park. published an article last week about a way for families to get more than three FastPasses+ per day would be to buy additional park tickets.

For my family of five adult-aged people who have been to Disney World before, purchasing over $500 worth of tickets for just one DAY would never be an option. If we had never ever been to Disney before and had one single day to see the sights, I might have to think about it. Multi-day tickets seem to be a much better idea, even if you have to pay more for accommodations and food during a longer stay.

Could you do it? Could you spend hundreds of dollars for additional tickets to have more access to FastPass rides? Would you buy a one-day ticket for a short trip?
