Most people are familiar with the benefits of upgrading their base ticket to a hopper pass but today I want to talk about the Water Park Fun and More add-on.  Let’s start with some of the basics of pricing.  Everyone starts with the basic Magic Your Way theme park pass for as many days as you like.  The price per day gets less and less the more days you add.  The Hopper and Waterpark add-ons do not work the same way.  It is a flat fee added to the cost of your base ticket.  As of June 17th, the price for adding on either the Hopper or the WPFAM is an additional $62.83 regardless of having an adult or child ticket.  And you can add on either one without having the other.  If you decide to get both, you will save as adding both add-on’s to a ticket costs $89.50.  This is kinda big!  If you normally buy the hopper pass for your family, you would get entry into a water park for less than $27!!!  A one day ticket to either water park is $56.45!  This is HUGE SAVINGS particularly for repeat guests who are looking to do activities outside of the four main parks. 
When you purchase the Water Park Fun and More add-on, you get as many entries as you purchased days in the base ticket.  Another words if you add on WPFAM to a 6 Day Base Ticket, you get 6 entries to any combination of the following parks and activities:

Disney’s Blizzard Beach Water Park – This water park brings the thrills of a ski resort to Orlando.  There is something for every age group from wild drop slides to lazy rivers.  This water park has one of my all-time favorite family rides, Teamboat Springs!  This twisting and turning raft ride is nice and long and fits a family of six!

Disney’s Typhoon Lagoon Water Park – As the story goes, a typhoon struck disaster but as the water receded, it resulted in lots of great water attractions.  Typhoon Lagoon boasts the big wave pool where every half hour waves ranging from bobbing swells to 6 foot waves delight swimmers.  You can also swim with sharks at Shark Reef, an opportunity to snorkel across a small lagoon filled with fish and yes even several (very passive) sharks!

DisneyQuest – An indoor interactive virtual theme park with ride simulators, high-tech games and hands-on activities.

Two Miniature Golf Courses – Disney’s Fantasia Gardens or Disney’s Winter Summerland Miniature Golf Course – Both very well themed and lots of fun.

Disney’s Oak Trail Golf Course – A family-friendly 9-hole, par 36 walking golf course set in rolling greens and exciting challenges. This cooperative wildlife sanctuary lets you test your skills with holes ranging from 132 to 517 yards from the white tees.  It’s operated by Arnold Palmer Golf Management and features junior tees for younger golfers.
ESPN Wide World of Sports Complex – 220 Acres of professionally run, state-of-the-art sports facilities which hosts over 60 sports and thousands of events for athletes of all ages and abilities.
While most families who are visiting Walt Disney World for the first time will have more than enough to do with exploring the four main theme parks and the amenities of their resort, anyone who is either a repeat guest or is enjoying an extended stay should definitely consider adding on the Water Park Fun and More to their ticket.  Let’s talk about this option when I help plan your next Disney World vacation!!
