Disney World likes to offer guests options especially when it comes to tickets. Their new tiered ticketing system allows for sliding rates depending on the historical popularity of that day – less popular days are less expensive; more popular days are more expensive. This allows Disney to encourage attendance on days that are historically less popular and thus even out their income and plan the number of Cast Members that they need on duty for that day.

Disney World is now offering a new ticket option called the Mid-Day Magic Ticket.

The Mid-Day Magic Ticket grants access to any of the four Disney World theme parks – Magic Kingdom, Epcot, Disney’s Hollywood Studios, or Disney’s Animal Kingdom – after noon. The base ticket, as always, includes one park per day, but the Park Hopper (more than one park per day) or Park Hopper Plus (more than one park and/or water parks) Option can be added for an additional cost. You can also add the MemoryMaker for the standard cost of $169.

Tickets are available in two-, three-, and four-day options starting at $81, $78, and $74 plus tax per day respectively. Once you choose your first day, you can choose additional days within the four-, five-, and seven-day window (respectively).

Once your ticket is booked, you can select FastPass+ attractions at the 30-day mark. Keep in mind that, since your ticket doesn’t allow entrance before noon, you should make FastPass+ reservations for after this time. Disney reminds guests that FP+ selections before noon will not be valid.

The Mid-Day Magic Ticket appears to be in the testing phases right now because the site notes that the offer is valid now through December 15th.
