How Much Does a Walt Disney World Vacation Cost?

The cost of a Walt Disney World Resort vacation package will vary depending on a few key factors. Your two most important components are park tickets and hotel accommodations. We’ll be primarily focusing on these two package components within this article.

After that, you’ll be looking at your dining and transportation costs. All of these can vary greatly. However, you should be aware that there are ticket, hotel, transportation and dining options that can fit nearly any budget.

How much are Walt Disney World Resort tickets?

There are three main types of Walt Disney World Resort tickets. Base Tickets are your most economical choice and allow you to visit one of the main four theme parks each day of your stay. Park Hopper Tickets allow you to visit multiple parks on the same day for an upgraded cost. Although Park Hopping was not available for most of 2020 travel, it returned with revised procedures on January 1, 2021. Now that Park Hoppers are available again at Walt Disney World Resort, you can expect to pay anywhere from $78-91 more per ticket to upgrade to a Park Hopper from a Base Ticket. The third ticket option is a Park Hopper Plus Ticket, which is the most expensive, but also offers the most variety. This Walt Disney World ticket allows you to visit all four theme parks, as well as bonus activities such as miniature golf and the Disney Water Parks during your visit. This ticket type when available is typically only a few extra dollars per day to upgrade to from a Walt Disney World Park Hopper Ticket.

When looking at prices of Walt Disney World tickets, you’ll of course pay more for a longer ticket. However, the price per day goes down significantly with longer length Disney World tickets. For example, a 1-day ticket for one park in 2021 starts at $109, but a 7-day base ticket for 2021 starts as low as $67 per day - a $42 per day discount! Or even better, a 10-day base ticket starts as low as $52 per day - that’s less than half price!

One other factor for Walt Disney World ticket pricing is the time of year you travel. Disney uses a dynamic pricing model based on expected attendance. Generally, the more popular the time you’d like to visit, the more you’ll pay. For example, most midweek days in late August and early September 2021 cost $109 for a 1-day ticket. The same ticket type over Christmas 2021 will cost $159. There are a number of other pricing ranges between $109-$159, with many Spring Break dates hitting right around the $130 mark. While you may pay more for travel during certain times of the year, you also may experience longer park hours and/or seasonal entertainment. Spring and Summer typically bring festivals to EPCOT. And both Halloween Time and Holidays bring special experiences to Magic Kingdom.

How much are Walt Disney World Resort hotels?

There are four major categories of Disney Hotels at the Walt Disney World Resort. You’ll find value, moderate, deluxe and villa properties with a wide range of amenities and prices. These hotel prices will also vary within their own category depending on the time of year. No matter which category you choose, you’ll save more by booking during an off-peak season travel time such as January, February, May or September as long as you avoid traveling over holiday weekends. With over 25 Disney Resort Hotels to choose from, there is something for every budget.
One other note worth mentioning again is that when you purchase your Walt Disney World vacation (minimum of a 3-night hotel stay and at least two theme park tickets) with Get Away Today, you get our Price Monitoring Service as part of our complimentary Concierge Service. This means that we are actively watching your reservation and if a special offer comes out that you qualify for after you’ve booked, we automatically apply it. You’ll just get an email letting you know that you just saved even more on your vacation!

How Much Is Walt Disney World Dining?

Dining at Walt Disney World can vary greatly. Walt Disney World Resort is currently not offering Disney Dining Plans, which typically would cost $80 per adult and $30 per child daily for a base plan. That cost would go up for more deluxe plans. However, there has always been controversy over whether or not Disney Dining Plans saved guests money. Many guests preferred Disney Dining Plans simply for the convenience. However, Disney has made great strides to provide guests easier contactless ordering and payment for dining.

As a typical guideline, there are snacks, quick service and table service dining options. Snacks including churros, ice creams, fruits or veggies will typically be cost $5-$10 per item and can oftentimes be used as a small meal. Quick service dining options are available throughout all of the parks and typically cost $15 or less per meal. Table service restaurants vary the most. For example, Be Our Guest Restaurant serves a prix-fixe dinner menu for $62 per adult not including tax or gratuity. But, the 50’s Prime Time Cafe serves dinner items ala carte for around $20 per plate.

While cost can vary greatly, you can budget it all in with a little pre-planning. The My Disney Experience app makes it so easy to look at menu prices beforehand so you can get a good idea of what you may be spending. At this time, you can make dining reservations for table service restaurants up to 60 days in advance.

If you’d like to save a little money on dining, you may want to consider grocery delivery service. Many guests like to have breakfast items and snacks delivered to their hotel. It’s also important to know that Walt Disney World Resort allows guests to bring in their own food. Hard coolers, loose ice, glass and alcoholic beverages are not permitted, but feel free to bring snacks, water bottles and treats with you if you’d like.

Amazon, Garden Grocers and Instacart are all great options for grocery delivery service at Walt Disney World Resort. Consider purchasing items that are easy to eat on the go and may already have their own containers like squeezable apple sauce packets, Uncrustables, Gogurts, granola bars and fresh fruit.

How Much Does It Cost To Get To Walt Disney World Resort?

How you get to the resort can also affect the cost of your Walt Disney World vacation. Depending on where you live, airfare throughout the United States can run from $100 - $500 per person. However, once you arrive at Orlando International Airport, all of your transportation is included when you book a Walt Disney World Resort package. You’ll take Disney’s Magical Express to your Disney Resort Hotel to begin your vacation, and board it to head back to the airport when your trip is through.

If you live close enough to drive, that can obviously help your family save money on getting to Walt Disney World. And once you’re on property, all of the transportation, including the Monorail, boats, buses and Skyliner are all available to use at no cost.

Lei and Bob, Great questions. For Walt Disney World, you pay just $200 down to hold your vacation. Final payment is due just 30 days prior to travel and you can make as many changes before then with no penalty.


Is payment for vacation packages due when they are booked or can you pay over time?


Do you offer the same layaway plan for Disney World vacations?


Gayle, we'd love to provide a quote to you. Just fill out the form posted in the article and someone will email you within 1-3 business days. :)


Last time I was looking intooking i was able to enter my own information to get an idea of cost. Now it seems it is required to speak with some. I am not interested in speaking with anyone until I determine I can even book a trip.


Can I get the concierge service at the contemporary


Wonderful what is the least expensive package for my 15 year old and myself to go Disney World?
