    If my account has two days of base tickets and 4 days of complimentary park hopper tickets, how does the park scanner know which ticket I want to use each day? I don't want to use the PH on a day when I plan to only go to one park. Thanks!

    Welcome back to the Disney Parks Moms Panel, Cynthia! It looks like you have a Springtime visit to the Walt Disney World Resort in the works! How exciting! Thanks for stopping in with your planning question.

    I’ve totally been in your shoes with theme park ticket predicaments just like this one. The best thing to do is head over to the concierge desk at your Disney Resort hotel or the ticket window at any of the theme parks. Will Call is also a good place to sort these things out. What you will want to do is ask the Cast Member to stack your tickets accordingly. 

    For example, if you know you will only visit one theme park for that particular day, tell the Cast Member to put that ticket at the top of your list for tickets. When you get to the gate where you scan your card or MagicBand on that Mickey sensor, it will pick up the ticket you’ve programmed for that day. Cast Members who have a tablet at the front entrance can also help you with any questions or problems you may encounter when entering the parks for the day.

    Cynthia, I hope you will enjoy some time at the Epcot International Flower & Garden Festival. You will love seeing all of the topiaries of your favorite classic Disney characters! The different kitchen kiosks all over the World Showcase pavilions are also fun. I really like trying out lots of different bites with my family!

    You can always come back to see us if you have any other planning questions. It’s our pleasure to help you with all of the details of your next magical visit!
