    Hi Ashley M!! I am having a hard time finding information on park hopper tickets and how to purchase. Can you help???

    Hi Ann! Welcome back to planDisney!

    When you decide to Park Hop at Walt Disney World Resort, you're really making the most out of every moment.  You can slow down in each Theme Park you visit and really take in the magnificent details that were planned so perfectly you barely notice them. Without feeling the pressure of needing to "do it all" you can enjoy just being at the Resort knowing you can pop back to this Theme Park anytime you wish.

    I personally love purchasing the Park Hopper Option when I'm vacationing because it allows our family to be a little more "go with the flow" and less scheduled.  I know, you're thinking, "why planDisney if you don't plan?!" but sometimes we find the best memories in the spontaneous moments of our trips.  

    To add the Park Hopper Option to your ticket, you'll first want to visit the Theme Park Tickets page on the Walt Disney World Website.  From here, you'll see a "Continue" button for a "Standard Theme Park Ticket."  Next, you'll have the option to choose the number of days you wish to purchase a ticket for, and the ability to check Park Pass Reservations for your intended dates.  All Guests must have both a valid admission ticket and a Park Pass Reservation to enter their first Park of the day.  Select your number of Theme Park days and scroll down to see other ticket options.  Here, you will find additions to your standard tickets, such as Water Park and Sports Option, Park Hopper Option, and Park Hopper Plus Option.  

    if you want to "hop" Parks but not to the Water Parks, Golf, Miniature Golf, or ESPN Wide World of Sports Complex, the regular Park Hopper Option is most likely what you're looking for. Click "Park Hopper Option" and then select the first date you plan to use the ticket in the calendar below.  Doing so will price out your ticket and tell you the range of dates you have to use it.  

    Continue scrolling to edit the number of persons in your party and whether they are children or adults.  Click continue to see add-on options like Memory Maker and the new Genie+ Service.   Even if you don't want to purchase these options now, you can still add them on before or even during your vacation!  Click "Continue" and you're ready to check out!

    From here, all you have to do is sit back, relax, and count down the days until you can start hopping!  Ann, just remember that you and your party will need to scan into the Park with a Park Pass Reservation before you can "hop" and hopping doesn't start until 2 p.m. each day.  However, you won't need a Reservation for any other Park, and you're welcome to hop as many times as you would like in one day!

    Happy Hopping!

Hi All, I'm Ashley! From the very beginning Walt Disney World Resort has always been a part of my life. As a child I excitedly helped to plan family trips, as a young adult I planned our "happily ever after" right on Disney property, and now I'm lucky enough to plan magical vacations for my three incredible children. When we're not taking in the enchanting experiences of the parks, we're home in Massachusetts, probably planning our next trip! Learn More About Ashley
