It costs €20 for adults and €16 for children (ages 3 – 11). Children less than 3 travel for free. You can book the tickets on the official website.

Visit One or Both Theme Parks?
If you visit the resort when there are few people and don’t have children, it is possible to do both theme parks on the same day and ride on most of the attractions. However, to do this, it is necessary to plan ahead and know exactly which rides you wish to try out.
The Fastpass is a special ticket that will allow you to skip the queues of the most visited attractions. All you have to do is introduce your admissions ticket in the Fastpass machine at the entrance of the ride you're interested in and you will be given a return time. Return to the attraction at that time and you will be able to skip the line.
