    Am I able to purchase base standard tickets in a hotel package now and once I get to the resort am I able to upgrade one of those tickets to a park hopper ticket? If I change my mind and want to park hop one of the days instead?

    Hi Jillian, welcome to planDisney!

    The best things come in magical packages, specifically a Walt Disney World Resort vacation package! Staying at a Walt Disney World Resort hotel comes with incredible perks like Early Theme Park Entry, complimentary transportation to and from the parks, and the ability to make dining and Enchanting Extras Collection reservations for your entire length of stay (up to 10 nights) 60 days before check-in. These perks can be combined with a variety of ticket options, depending on your vacation style and preferences. 

    You'll be glad to know that you can upgrade your tickets to include the Park Hopper Option any time before you tap in at your first theme park. For multi-day tickets, kindly note that a Park Hopper upgrade must apply to the entire ticket length and cannot be purchased for a single day. You can speak with the concierge at your Disney Resort hotel or any Guest Relations Cast Member for upgrade assistance.

    There is no wrong way to experience the magic of the theme parks, Jillian. Whether hanging out at Magic Kingdom Park from rope drop to Happily Ever After or taking a midday pool break at your Disney Resort hotel before park hopping, you'll end up right where you belong.

    Plan magic; planDisney.
