    Hello, when I arrive at Disney, can I upgrade my ticket to park hop if it wasn’t bought from Disney itself?

    Welcome to planDisney, Elle! As a fellow U.K. resident, did you know we have access to an enchanting Magic Ticket? It's only available for advanced purchase and includes outstanding benefits such as Memory Maker and Park Hopper. In my opinion, from a price-per-day standpoint, there is no better option. 

    I cannot be sure what ticket you have purchased, but you should be able to link it through your My Disney Experience Account. If you would like to upgrade a ticket, please know this must be done before you scan and enter any Theme Park, at which point your ticket may not be upgraded. 

    Elle, although you can upgrade a ticket at Walt Disney World Ticket Booths, I would again advise against this if possible. Upgrading a ticket can cancel your existing Park Reservation and require making a new one. Park reservations are subject to availability, with same-day reservations not always available.  

    I suggest speaking with one of the Disney Experts to verify your ticket options now, meaning you can head straight into the Most Magical Place on Earth immersed in the enchantment, rather than thinking about tickets.  

    Elle, please pop back here if you have any further Walt Disney World questions. Enjoy the magic! Louise
