Waterpark and more?

My son wants to take a birthday weekend trip to Disney, but he doesn't want to visit any parks. He wants to do Disney Quest one day and a water park another day. Is there any way to get just the waterpark and more option ticket? I am assuming not, do ticket brokers sell these two tickets cheaper than Disney? We are headed down for a familymoon in December and I haven't bought the tickets for that trip yet, I don't know if there is any combo there that might help, but I think not, because the non expiring tickets are so pricey. Ideas, please...
Also, if you have a review for Disney Quest I would appreciate it, we've never been.

I would purchase the year waterparks pass with DQ options. I believe it is about 130 or so. We only did a waterparks trip twice this summer. They were great! Went for a total of 10 days to both parks. Have fun!

The combined water park and Disney Quest Annual Pass is $129 adult or $99 child (plus tax). There are no blockout dates and it is good for a year from date of purchase.

Since water park one day entry is $52/44 and DQ is $44/$38 it is a real bargain.

Cheshire- can you please tell me how much it is to renew an annual water park pass for adults, not a Florida resident? I believe there is a discount but just not sure the amount. Thanks!

That's so awesome, I so did not realize that was an option! It's only around a $70 difference total, definitely worth it. Thanks guys...the DIS never ceases to come to my rescue.

Water Park Annual Pass Renewal $ 84.95 adult or $ 68.50 child (plus tax). There is no renewal discount for the Resident After 2:00pm as the price is so low.

But its only a good deal if you use it more than 2 times. You said you wanted to go to DQ once and a WP once. Just buying one day tickets would be cheaper.

OP said they were also going down in December. Then they won't need WP and more tickets for the December trip.

Cheshire, you are a gem. Anytime someone has a question you always help! Thank you for helping all of us with quirky questions!

And now I have one more for you.

I am purchasing an AP in February. Can I keep my waterpark AP separate? I don't want to upgrade to the next level that includes DQ.

Thanks in advance!

PAP includes water parks and Disney Quest not the AP. So if you don't want Disney Quest, just get the regular AP and then get a water park AP and you'll be go to go.

PP is correct, but if you get the PAP the general merchandise discount is 20% while a regular AP is 10%.
