    Bonjour Ariane, is it possible to upgrade one park a day tickets to park hopper tickets? If so, is it best to do this prior to my trip by calling Disney or to wait until I am at POR and ask a cast member at the front desk for help? Merci!

    Bonjour Danielle!

    Welcome back to planDisney, and thank you for reaching back out! It is truly such an honour to get to help fellow Canadians, and I am genuinely touched that you wanted to include me in your plans again. The Park Hopper Option is one of my "must dos" when visiting the theme parks, so let's talk about how you can add it to your vacation!

    Danielle, I am happy to confirm that you can indeed upgrade your tickets to include the Park Hopper Option, and the best part is you will not lose your theme park reservations when doing so! Your theme park tickets can be upgraded online or in person at a Vacation Planning window, so it is entirely up to you as to when you would like to do this. 

    When park hopping, there are a few things you should be aware of to make sure your vacation is magical. First, because you are not required to make a park reservation for your second theme park, it is important to note that park hopping is also subject to availability. To see which parks are available, you can check your My Disney Experience mobile app and look at the theme park hours. Second, if you book any dining reservations or Enchanting Extras, these reservations will not guarantee your entry into their theme park if you are park hopping. Therefore, it is best to make your theme park reservations for the park where your dining reservation is located. Lastly, park hopping usually starts at 2 P.M. EST and park-to-park transportation typically starts at 1:30 P.M. EST, but make sure to check on these times daily as they are subject to change.

    I hope this helped, Danielle, and that you will have the most magical vacation ever on your next trip to the Walt Disney World Resort! If you have any other questions, please don't hesitate to send another question my way! You've got a friend in me here at planDisney.

    Have a magical day,
