Ever wonder what “Water Park Fun & More” means and if it’s the right ticket for you? Here’s a breakdown of what the Water Park Fun & More ticket includes and why this Frog thinks it’s one of the best tickets out there…
Admissions & Fun Visits
The Water Park Fun & More ticket allows you to visit the four main parks (Magic Kingdom, Epcot, Hollywood Studios and Animal Kingdom) for the number of days on your ticket. It also includes the same number of Fun Visits which are admissions to Typhoon Lagoon, Blizzard Beach, DisneyQuest, Oak Trails Golf Course and Disney’s Wide World of Sports. So with a 5 day Water Park Fun & More ticket, you’ll get five days at the four main parks and five Fun Visits.
As the Frog Family CFO, I’m always looking for the best value so let’s do the math…
A 5 day Magic Your Way adult ticket (from Undercover Tourist) is $269.35. A single day adult Water Park ticket (from Disney) is $55.38. For five days at the main theme parks and one day at a water park, your total cost would be $324.73. A 5 day Water Park Fun & More adult ticket (from UCT) is $311.95. Your savings is $12.78, and you’ll have four more Fun Visits than if you purchased the 5 day Magic Your Way ticket and a single day water park ticket. Now that’s a value!*
Lots of Options
Let’s look at the 6 day Water Park Fun & More ticket. If you use the Fun Visits on separate days, you would have something different to do for 12 whole days within a 14 day period. You can also use a Fun Visit on the same day you go to a main park. You can also use more than one Fun Visit in a day. See? The possibilities go on and on.
How You Can Use It
Here are two examples of how to use a Water Park Fun & More ticket.
Example One: Go to Magic Kingdom from park opening until about noon. Then head to Typhoon Lagoon and cool off in Castaway Creek for a few hours during the hottest part of the day. Go back to your hotel room for a quick rest and change of clothes. Re-enter Magic Kingdom around 6:30 p.m. for the nighttime parade and fireworks show. (You’ll have used one day and one Fun Visit.)
Example Two: Go to Blizzard Beach when the water park opens. Bring a picnic lunch and plan on staying for most of the day. Go back to your hotel room in the afternoon for a shower and a change of clothes. Then head to Downtown Disney and spend the rest of the evening at DisneyQuest. (You’ll have used two Fun Visits and no days.)
Remember, if you want to visit more than one main park in a day, you’ll need a Park Hopper + Water Park Fun & More ticket.
