    I bought a 5 day park hopper, do I have to use it within 5 consecutive days or can there be a gap between uses?

    Hello Amanda! Welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel.

    Whenever we visit Walt Disney World Resort with the Park-Hopper Option on our Theme Park Tickets, we try our best to arrive early at one of the parks, retire to our Walt Disney World Resort Hotel for a rest and dip in the pool and make our way to a different theme park in the evening. It really creates an aura of Endless Magic when you dive into 2 vastly different worlds in the same day.

    I would also recommend that you split up some of the days you are in the Walt Disney World Resort Theme Parks if you are staying for longer than the number of days on your tickets. You can do this, Amanda, because the number of days you have to use your Theme Park Tickets is 14 days after first use. This means that you can go to any of the 4 Walt Disney World Theme Parks on one day, choose to stay at your Walt Disney World Resort hotel the next day and visit Disney Springs the next. As long as you spend your 5-day Theme Park tickets within 14 days, you can choose how to spend the rest of your vacation.

    On our days outside of the Theme Parks, my family may visit a Walt Disney World Resort Water Park, such as Disney's Typhoon Lagoon, play a round at Fantasia Gardens and Fairways Miniature Golf, do some shopping at Disney Springs or book Advanced Dining Reservations for a favorite Dinner Show or Character Dining Experience at one of the Resort Hotels, such as Hoop-Dee-Doo Musical Revue.

    Have a Magical Vacation!
