View Full Version : Ticket for a 4 week stay. Help please

We have just booked to go to Orlando for 4 weeks next September :banana:
and now i need to work out which tickets would be best to buy.

We have already decided on the Disney annual pass as we will probably end up going to a disney park most days or nights, but I am really stuck on what to do about the other parks.

We want to be able to go to all of the other parks including Busch gardens if possible but don't really want to be restricted as to when. I'm not really bothered if we have to go for a 21 day ticket for these parks but don't really want to be restricted any more than that.

What are the best/cheapest options available?

For Busch, Seaworld and 2 Universal parks the longest ticket you can buy is 14 days unless you buy Annual passes.
Busch/Seaworld 2 years passes are worth considering if you are going again within 2 years, works out at 40/park/year, I just bought them at Easter.
If you are not returning within the year I would go for 21 day Disney tickets, maybe buying 1 AP to get free parking.
If you want 4 weeks in Disney no choice but AP's for all, not sure I could do 4 weeks straight in Disney :rotfl2:

As Wayne notes, for the parks other than Disney the tickets tend to have a 14 day limit.

You may want to consider buying separate tickets for US/IoA and Seaworld/Aquatica/Busch Gardens plus a 21 day Disney ticket.

You could then stagger the start dates of the tickets, so for example:

Day 1 - Universal/IoA (valid to day 14)
Day 7 - SW/BG/Aquatica (valid to day 21)
Day 7 - Disney (valid to day 28)

Another option would be to start SW/BG/Aquatica at the start of your third week, so that you have an alternative to Disney throughout your holiday. Not sure how much less a 21 day Disney ticket is compared to AP - it may be worth purchasing at least one AP to gain the free parking and other benefits than come with it.

We went for nearly a month at christmas and we staggered our tickets, we didnt activate our 21 days till day 6 ( we was staying at the villa the moving on to boardwalk and knew wed need them the last week), we used our universal ones the frist week (universal have good offers on all the time best to check and work out which is better for you ~ these are much cheaper than disney tix) and upgraded just one of our Disney park passed to an AP, for parking, discounts etc and just visited seaworld for the day and return free promotion (they validate ticket to come back within 7 days)

It would work out much more economical to plan the weeks rather than have tickets valid for the whole time that you wont get the use out of.
The first fe nights youll be too knackered to go out to late anyway so you wont lose much with the 21 days tickets to disney, also these incluse waterpark and disneyquest which only the more expensive Ap ones incluse, of course if your revisiting within the year then AP would be the way to go.

Have got quite a few things to think about there :headache:

Thanks for all of the advice.
