    Dorota from ON Asked Please note that experiences, policies, pricing and other offerings are subject to change and may have changed since the date of this answer.

    Are you able to upgrade your standard ticket to a park hop ticket once you entered the theme park? (Ie. Our original reservation is for AK, can we upgrade our ticket to park hopper once we inside AK?)

    Greetings, and welcome to planDisney, Dorota!

    Thank you for bringing this excellent question to planDisney – it would be my pleasure as a fellow Canadian resident and Disney fan to help you today! I’m excited that you’re planning a visit to Walt Disney World Resort, hopefully, in time for the 50th Anniversary Celebration.

    Dorota, you may be able to upgrade your existing Walt Disney World Resort theme park tickets to include the Park Hopper® Option before your visit via your Disney account, if you are able to see a modification option when you access your Tickets and Passes in My Plans – Dining, Resort Hotel and Tickets beneath the My Disney Experience planning tab, or if using the My Disney Experience App by accessing the Tickets and Passes tile on your Welcome Dorota page. If speaking with and receiving assistance from a Cast Member is what you’re comfortable with, please feel free to contact the Walt Disney World Resort – Help Center.

    During your visit to Disney’s Animal Kingdom Theme Park, you might be able to upgrade your existing tickets (depending on the type of tickets you hold) by visiting the theme park ticket booth before entry, at a Guest Relations Lobby inside the theme park, or before your visit to Disney's Animal Kingdom Theme Park by visiting the Disney Ticket Center at Disney Springs

    Dorota, please keep this current Walt Disney World Resort – Ticket Expiration Timeline in mind as you consider any upgrades to your existing tickets.

    The Park Hopper® Option is a great way to experience multiple theme parks in one day – just remember that you will need to visit your first theme park of the day with a Disney Park Pass – Theme Park Reservation and then at 2:00 PM or later, you are welcome to visit another theme park without a Theme Park Reservation, pending availability.

    To save time waiting in lines for select attractions and experiences that offer the Lightning Lane entrance, using the My Disney Experience App you can purchase the Disney Genie+ service. Plus, when you purchase the Disney Genie+ service, you’ll enjoy the Disney PhotoPass Lenses – a special collection of Disney-themed lenses that bring forth augmented reality effects. And you’ll be able to listen to theme park fun facts, and backstage magic by listening to Audio Tales right on the My Disney Experience App!

    Book an early morning breakfast with Donald Duck and Friends over at Tusker House to get a head start on your Disney's Animal Kingdom Theme Park tour.

    Best Disney Wishes & See Ya Real Soon!
