    Liz from MI Asked

    Coming to Disney August 25-30. Is there a way to figure out what shows and attractions cost extra and what are already included in the tickets? My kiddos love everything from Mickey to Princess but we are on a budget. Thanks!

    Hi Liz - the great thing about Walt Disney World is that so much is included in your theme park ticket - there very little that is extra.

    Other than food, expect to pay for midway-style games at Animal Kingdom (and one or two at the Magic Kingdom).  Of course, you'll have to pay for all beverages.  Fast Passes, character experiences, and shows in the parks are included with admission. 

    Everything at Downtown Disney is extra - so while you don't pay an admission fee, you will pay for shows, movies, and other amusements.

    In general, the only thing we spend money on in the theme parks beyond the theme park admission is souvenirs and food.

    I hope that helps you as you prepare your budget.
