When we did the 3 day land/4 day cruise package, our hotel at Disney World and length of stay passes were included. However, if you book outside of the "package" you can just get the hotel and you don't have to get the passes. Hope this helps!Janine wrote:

You almost have to get a brochure to see the options. A hotel stay gives you use of their transportation system. Most popular package includes entrance to one theme park a day. Four days and you've seen them all. An entry ticket isn't required after hours to go into a park to eat. There are packages that give you free access to any park any time, others include unlimited beverages on the property and one includes all meals taken on the property.
Be sure to pay with American Express. It is the *official* credit card and will raward you with some *secret* benefits that make using it worth while.
The beauty of the land/sea package is that you don't touch your bags while in Orlando. They are collected at the airport and taken to your hotel to be in your room when the mouse bus deposits you at the door. Last day you check out and your bags head for Port Canaveral. You can get a few more hours on the property before heading for the ship. You can complete the ship's check-in at the hotel so that you walk from the bus directly onto the ship. Not quite as exclusive now that you have to swing through the lobby to go through security. Last night your luggage disappears from outside your room and is next seen on the carousel at home.
Most people think that's great. Personally I drive up to the cage, watch while my bags are loaded, grudgingly put them outside my room the last night, don't go to breakfast until I see them (lots of yellow tape) off loaded and taken into the terminal to be collected and taken to the parking lot. Convenience or paranoia, your choice.
When booking land and sea all theme park enterances (and I mean ALL...water parks town town disney etc) aaare included. Meals and drinks are not but you can buy a mug at your hotel that lets you pay one price and continually fill it up for free at the cafeteria at your hotel. This is very handy......on the ship they have the same idea. You can buy a mug and drink pop free the whole time...however pop is free at meal time and there is a drink ( hot choc, tea coffe and ice tea) station by the pool that is free the whole time on the ship. It is the best vacation everrrrr!
