How Much Are One-Day Tickets to Orlando’s Theme Parks?
One-day theme park ticket prices are always park-specific. At Walt Disney World® Resort and Universal Orlando Resort, pricing also depends on timing, as one-day tickets at those parks command higher prices during peak visitation periods. Adding a park-hopper option, which allows you to visit multiple parks on the same day, will add to the price, too.
Also keep in mind that buying in advance can save you money and time compared to waiting till you’re at the gate. To learn more about your preferred theme parks’ one-day ticket prices, check out the discounted options at Visit Orlando powered by BestofOrlando.com or visit their websites.
Visit Orlando’s authorized discounted tickets are also available from Visit Orlando’s Live Chat representatives.
