    We booked a 6 day park hopper pass, with the option of attending an 'extra' such as blizzard beach each day. We are going for 7 days. Could we use a day to visit just blizzard beach and hang at the hotel or will using it count as a day?

    Hello Stephanie!  Welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel.

    When my family visits Walt Disney World Resort we always book our Theme Park Tickets at least 3 less days than we have scheduled for our trip.  Not only do these extra days allow for some quality Walt Disney World Resort Hotel experiences or a trip to Disney Springs, but it is also a perfect day to experience any "extra fun" that Walt Disney World Resort has to offer.

    When you purchase your Theme Park Tickets with Park Hopper Plus Option, you are entitled to an equal number of visits to other Walt Disney World Resort fun as the length of your stay.  With you 6-day Theme Park Tickets with Park Hopper Plus Option, each member included in your booked party has 6 experiences they may redeem.  The Options for this "extra fun" include
    • Disney's Blizzard Beach Water Park;
    • Disney's Typhoon Lagoon Water Park;
    • ESPN Wide World of Sports Complex;
    • Disney's Oak Trail Golf Course;
    • Disney's Fantasia Gardens Miniature Golf Course; and,
    • Disney's Winter Summerland Miniature Golf Course.
    The best part of these experiences is that they do not need to be redeemed on the days that you spend in the Theme Parks.  The only condition to these extra options is that you have 14 days from initial purchase for redemption which is well within your planed 7-day vacation.

    When my family travels, we reserve these extra fun options exclusively for days spent outside of the Theme Parks.

    Have a Magical Vacation!
