The magic of Disney is strong... My friends and I are planning a 2-3 day visit to Disney in Orlando. Any suggestions for any 2-3 day ticket package/pass? Thanks:)
My opinion is to go to disneyworld.com and buy your tickets. I have also heard that mousesavers.com is another site that offers the biggest discount on tickets.
Congratulations on your upcoming trip! If you have been to Disney before, I would recommend getting a One-day park hopper or base ticket with the "water park fun and more" option. The one day base ticket will give you a single day's visit to a park of your choice AND two options/credits for the water park fun and more. This will give you the choice of Disney's Blizzard Beach Water Park, Disney's Typhoon Lagoon Water Park, Disney's Oak Trail Golf Course, Disney Quest, either of the two Disney mini golf courses, or Disney's Wide World-Sports. You can pick two!
A One day Park hopper and Water Park Fun and More ticket will cost $191.70
A One day Base Ticket with the Water Park Fun and More will cost $164.01
As you can see, for an extra $27, you can upgrade to the Park Hopper option if you wish to do more than one park in a single day. This is definitely do-able if you have been to Disney before since you already know your favorite attractions.
Your itinerary would look something like this: Day One: Downtown Disney and Disney Quest, golf
or mini golf
Day Two: Theme Park(s)
Day Three: Water Park or Wide World of Sports, and
visiting the deluxe hotels on the monorail
You can get a good taste of Disney even without going to the theme parks every day. All Disney hotels have a great themed pool and other activities. Sometimes it's better to splurge on an expensive dinner rather than going to a theme park. Some great options to get a good taste of Disney are Chef Mickey's character dinner, Hoop-Dee-Doo Musical Revue dinner show, Cape May Cafe restaurant, California Grill, and 1900 Park Fare just to name a few. You could also splurge on a dessert party or a Pirates and Pals Fireworks Voyage. Another option would be to go on one of Disney's many tours.
Hope this helps! If all else fails, you could still go to a theme park every day if you're up to it. It's Disney after all!

Undercover Tourist is a great place to buy tickets. I would recommend the park hopper since you only have a few days especially if you are wanting to get to all 4 parks. Make sure to note AK closing time; it's earlier than the other parks. Avoid parks with extra magic hours. This just makes them more crowded with WDW resorts guests. Illuminations at Epcot is our favorite nighttime fireworks show, but Fantasmic and Wishes are good also. Be sure to do your fast passes for the more popular rides, so you can speed up things a little. Best wishes and hope you have a magical time!
Disney has an option on tickets called "Park Hopper." Park hoppers cost a bit more than a regular ticket, but it provides you the freedom to "hop" from one park to the next depending on what you are doing (i.e. - hopping from Epcot to Magic Kingdom Park in the same day). If you only have a short amount of time, there will be certain places at each park you may want to highlight. I recommend the Park Hopper option so you can see the bigger attractions at each park and get a sample of everything. For instance, I think Disney's Hollywood Studios has the best nighttime performance, called Fantasmic!, but some of the classic Disney rides can be found in Magic Kingdom.
