    Is there any benefit to purchasing a park hopper pass other then being able to go to more than one park per day? I was going to purchase extra tickets for those few days that we do go to more than one park.


    Park hopper tickets do exactly what they state, and nothing more.  They allow you to visit any of the four theme parks as many times as you like during a single day, and it will only count as using up a single day's worth of tickets.

    Please be aware that adding the "park hopper" option is the most economical way to visit more than one park on a single day, regardless of the number of times you want to hop, or the number of days of tickets you purchase.  The park hopper option costs less than a separate single-day ticket, and it is a fixed cost, regardless of the number of days you purchase on your ticket.

    Please also be aware that you are not allowed to enter more than one park on the same day on the same ticket, unless you have the park hopper option.  Adding more days to your ticket will not help, since you can't use more than one park entry on a ticket in the same day.

    I hope that makes sense.  It probably isn't what you wanted to hear, but at least it is better to find this out in advance.

    For what it is worth, I would recommend you wait until you are at WDW to make a final decision about park hopping.  You can always add it, if you need it, and it will cost the same incremental amount at WDW as it would in advance.  Many times I find that it isn't necessary, and we're glad that we didn't pay in advance for something we ended up not needing.
