The Magic Your Way Tickets are priced to benefit those who stay 4 days or longer and penalize those looking for the 1 - 3 day visit. Once you get to 4 days each additional day costs $8 per day to add to the ticket. This is much better than the $85 one day ticket. Disney uses the tagline: "The More You Play, The Less You Pay Per Day!"
Park Hopper Option: This option allows you to visit multiple parks per day. It costs a flat rate of $55 to add this option, no matter how many days you purchase for your base ticket. Again this makes it very expensive to add to your ticket if you have 4 days or less.
Water Park Fun and More Option: This option entitles guest to a specified number of visits (between 2 and 10) to a choice of entertainment and recreation venues. Choices are Disney’s Blizzard Beach water park, Disney’s Typhoon Lagoon water park, DisneyQuest, Disney’s Oak Trail golf course, ESPN Wide World of Sports Complex.
Again this option costs a flat rate of $55 no matter how many days are on your base ticket. The number of visits equals the number of days on your ticket. You do not have to use a theme park day the same day you use one of these option days.
No Expire Option: This option makes the unused days on your ticket last forever and are not subject to the 14 day expiration. The cost for this option is steep and it is adjusted based upon the number of days on your Base Magic Your Way Ticket.
Here are the costs:
# of Days No Expiration Option
2 $ 25
3 $ 35
4 $ 75
5 $ 115
