    Can I add park hopper option to my ticket online or do I have to do it at the parks when I arrive?

    Hiya Kayla,

    Welcome to planDisney! We are so excited that you are here and planning a vacation to Walt Disney World this summer. With Guardians of the Galaxy: Cosmic Rewind opening next month, this summer will be an intergalactic party! With a Park Hopper Option added to your Walt Disney World Resort Vacation, you will have an even more incredible time. I personally love park hopping. My perfect Walt Disney World day includes rope drop at either Disney’s Animal Kingdom to ride Kilimanjaro Safari or Disney’s Hollywood Studios to get in line for Star Wars: Rise of the Resistance. Then I finish up by park hopping to EPCOT after 2 p.m. to grab a snack and stroll around the World Showcase.

    In my experience, you are welcome to add the Park Hopper Option to a pre-purchased Standard Theme Park ticket. To upgrade your ticket using the My Disney Experience mobile app:

    1. Open the mobile app and locate the three horizontal lines in the bottom right-hand corner.
    2. Select “Tickets and Passes” from the menu.
    3. Next, select the tickets you would like to upgrade and choose “Change Ticket.”
    4. Follow the on-screen prompts to add the Park Hopper option to our tickets.

    If you cannot add the Park Hopper Option through the My Disney Experience mobile app, you may need to do it in person with a Cast Member at Guest Relations.

    I hope this was helpful and that you can add Park Hopper to your summer Walt Disney World Resort vacation. Before I forget, don’t forget the current guidelines for Park Hopping:

    1. You must have a Disney Park Pass reservation for the first park you would like to visit that day.
    2. You must physically enter the first park before park hopping to a new park after 2 p.m.
    3. Park hopping is subject to theme park availability for the park you plan to hop to.

    Let us know if you have any other questions!

    Happy Planning,

    Ashley F.
