Each of these parks can take a full day or even longer to do and see everything they have to offer, so multi-park and multi-day passes are more expensive but can be worth it if this is a once in a lifetime experience. Inside the parks themselves, food, drinks, and souvenirs are also costly so be sure to budget for these usually not remembered expenses.
