If you’ve not used the ticket calculator before, here’s a quick overview: You tell the calculator how many days you’re going to visit the theme parks, water parks and DisneyQuest, and whether you’re going to park hop or buy the “no expiration” ticket option. The calculator will tell you the least expensive combination of tickets to buy, and from which vendor, in order to see everything you want.
For example, if you’re visiting the theme parks but only visiting one water park on one day, there are many instances where buying a separate water park admission is a better deal than buying the Water Parks Fun and More option on your Magic Your Way ticket. You could grab a list of ticket prices from all the major vendors and sit down with a calculator to figure out all the options. Or you could use the calculator, which does it for you in about ten seconds. Use the calculator.
