For as long as most Walt Disney World fans can remember, UK guests had the ability to purchase Disney’s either a 7, 14, or 21 ultimate ticket. The ticket was always great value compared to paying for tickets on the day.
The tickets gave VacationEars access to all 4 theme parks and both water parks (with unlimited park hopping included), a FREE Memory Maker worth $199, as well as a few extras like ESPN Wide World of Sports, one round a day at Fantasia Gardens or the Winter Summerland Miniature Golf Courses.
Now, Disney is replacing the “Ultimate Tickets” with “Magic Tickets” for all new tickets purchased starting November 3rd, 2021.
“Magic Tickets” will be pretty much the same as the previously named “Ultimate Tickets”, but with a few tweaks. If you’re buying your ticket as part as a Walt Disney World holiday package from Fly Mickey Travel, you won’t see any real difference. The first day your tickets are valid is the day you check-in to your Disney hotel – just like before.
However, if you’re staying off-site and with separate tickets they will become date-specific. Before your ultimate ticket could be used at any time in a 12 month period, but now you must declare a start date (alongside making park reservations).
This will allows Disney to adjust the ticket price based on the season you want the tickets for, similar to how US citizens buy their day tickets.
Do not worry, if you’ve already paid in full for your 2022 Walt Disney World tickets in full, they will be honoured and you don’t need to declare a start date (but you will need to still make park reservations).
If you haven’t paid in full (for example, only paid a deposit) your tickets will be transferred to “Magic Tickets” if the balance on the tickets is not paid by November 2nd (or earlier depending on your ticket vendor of choice). We will be in touch with customers who this applies to.
Remembers, If you booked your tickets as part of your Walt Disney World on-site holiday package, you don’t need to take any action.
A plus to this change is that a 14-day “Magic Ticket” can now be used for 14 days of park access over an 18 day period, (instead of 15 previously), and a 7-day ticket can be used over 15 days.
Disney will continue to sell and honour all Ultimate Tickets purchased between now and November 2nd. 2021. After that, your holiday will come with “Magic Tickets” and have a chosen start date.
Pricing for those “Magic Tickets” won’t be available until November 3rd. So if you’re looking to get Disney tickets, we can secure them now.
