    Hi Brenda, thank you for answering my previous question! If we add the water park option to our base ticket, are we then able to spend the day at Typhoon Lagoon and then visit HS for Fantasmic, or does that require a Park Hopper addition? Thanks again!

    Hi Angela,

    The pleasure is all mine and I am happy to hear from you again!  You do not need to add the Park Hopper option to your tickets unless you plan on visiting more than 1 theme park in a single calendar day.  Therefore you may redeem 1 of your Water Park Fun & More visits and also 1 of your theme park days in the same day without adding the Park Hopper option.

    On a related note, you may leave and re-enter the same theme park throughout the day with your base ticket.  You only need to add the Park Hopper if you want to visit a different theme park within the same day.  The theme parks are:  Magic Kingdom, Epcot, Hollywood Studios and Animal Kingdom.

    I think you have a great plan to visit Typhoon Lagoon in the morning/afternoon and then go to Hollywood Studios for the evening.  Don't forget that even though you won't be visiting Hollywood Studios until the evening, you can still make FastPass+ selections for it.  To help you decide upon a plan for your evening, I personally recommend using Touring Plans.  Touring Plans is an unofficial website which does require a small paid subscription, but it is well worth it in my opinion and I use it quite often myself.

    You sound like you are doing a great job at making your magical vacation plans Angela!  Please let me know if you have any more vacation planning questions that I can help you with.  We are always here when you need us and are honored more than you can imagine when other Guests find our tips useful.
