Picking what kind of tickets you want can be a daunting task to a first time visitor of Walt Disney World, it can even be difficult for people who have visited plenty of times in the past!
So what kind of tickets do you need/want?
There are the Park Hopper Tickets, No Expiration Option and Water Park and More options.
What does Park Hopper mean? Park Hopper means that you will be allowed to visit more than one park per day, you can visit all the theme parks per day if you wish! I believe there was a day one one vacation where we did see all four parks in one day. Having park hoppers is great when you want to eat breakfast in the Magic Kingdom, spend the afternoon there and then see Fantasmic in Disney's Hollywood Studios later that night! I never go without getting the park hopper. Some people would say that if it is your first trip, hopping parks can get exhausting, especially if you are going full force and want to see everything. I would disagree, I always recommend getting the park hopper. You just never know when you will want to return to a different park during the day.
The No Expiration Option: I think that the No Expiration option could save you the most money in the long-run. All other Disney tickets will expire 14 days after the first days use but if you get the no expiration option, they will NEVER expire and you can return to Disney World whenever you want and use the same tickets! If you are planning to EVER return to Disney than this may be the best option for you!
The Water Park and More Option allows for you to not only enter all four theme parks but you can also go to the water parks and DisneyQuest as well as Disney's Wide World of Sports. If you plan to go to one of the Water Parks, then this is the option for you. If you are going to skip the water parks, then you can skip this add-on as well.
This can be a little confusing and overwhelming but of course, if you have any questions you can always ask you travel agent!

Also you should know how many days you want on your tickets, if you are going to be in Disney for 4 nights 5 days you can either get a 4 day or 5 day ticket. If we are going to be there 4 days and 5 nights, I would usually get a 4 day pass because on the 5 day we are leaving for the airport and we don't usually go to the parks. But we can always go to Downtown Disney and take a swim in the pool. We can always find something to do without a park ticket. The more days you get on your ticket the cheaper the per day rate is.
