    I bought a 1day ticket, but plans changed and now we will do AK&MK in 1 day. Will upgrade tix at Guest Services, but I was wondering if FP reservations made in advance for MK attractions will still be valid after I check in in AK in the morning? Thanks

    Howdy Marie-Jade!

    Welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel!  Thank you for sharing your question with us!  Your day hopping from Disney’s Animal Kingdom Theme Park to the Magic Kingdom Park will be a full fun-filled day!

    Since you have a one-day theme park ticket and you want to visit two parks, you will need to have the Park Hopper Option added.  This process is a breeze.  Once you arrive at Disney’s Animal Kingdom Theme Park, you will go to the ticketing area, and a cast member will be able to upgrade your ticket for you.  You will be able to enjoy your time at this park and then hop on a Walt Disney World bus headed for the Magic Kingdom.  If you are driving to Disney’s Animal Kingdom Theme Park, then I highly recommend taking your own personal vehicle to the Magic Kingdom Park.  Disney’s Animal Kingdom Theme Park hours are usually not as last as the Magic Kingdom Park.  Your FastPass + reservations for the Magic Kingdom Park will be valid.  Just make sure you give yourself plenty of time to hop from one park to the next.

    You will also be happy to know if you are driving your vehicle, then you will be able to use the same parking pass for both parks!  If you are staying at one of the fantastic Walt Disney World Resort Hotels, then you will enjoy the ease of catching a complimentary bus to the Magic Kingdom Park! 

    I know your time exploring these two parks will bring memories to last a lifetime!  If you would like to stay informed of everything for 2020, check out the Disney Parks Blog.  Also, if you have any more questions, come back to the Disney Parks Moms Panel!  We are always here to help you, Marie-Jade!

    See Ya Real Soon,
