    If I buy a 3 day park hopper for June 25th, do I have to visit on the 25th?

    Welcome to planDisney, Nicole. Thank you for stopping by with your Walt Disney World Resort vacation planning question!

    Your decision to add the Park Hopper Option to your 3-Day Ticket is a great one, in my opinion. My family and I always take advantage of the flexibility to jump from one park to another based on crowds, mid-day naps, pool breaks at your Disney Resorts Collection hotel, or dining reservations. As Disney Resort Guests, we also like to take advantage of Early Entry at a theme park and then switch to the park that closes the latest in the evening, so we feel less guilty about spending a couple of hours at the pool in the afternoon or taking our time at dinner.

    One of the best features of purchasing a multi-day ticket for your vacation to The Most Magical Place on Earth is that you have a window of time to use the number of days you bought admissions for, and the days don’t have to be consecutive. In your case, if you were to purchase a 3-Day Ticket with the Park Hopper Option for June 25th, you would have five (5) days from the 25th to use the 3-Days’ worth of admissions. For example, if you didn’t want to visit a Theme Park on the 25th, you could go on the 26th, 27th, and 28th, or add a rest/resort day on the 28th and go on the 29th or a similar combination. I recommend going to the Theme Park Ticket page, selecting the number of days (three in your case), and selecting the start date of June 25th so you can see what I mean on the calendar. The dates highlighted in light blue would be the days you can use your tickets.

    If you haven't looked into adding Disney Genie+, I would recommend this to accompany your Park Hopper Option. Genie+ is a great way to save time waiting in attraction queues while utilizing Lightning Lane Entrances. Not only can you spend less time in lines, but you can also access digital photos from select attractions!

    As an avid Park Hopper, if you would like suggestions on scheduling your days based on where you are staying, dining reservations you may have, or specific attractions and entertainment experiences you don’t want to miss, submit another question. I would be happy to help you continue with your vacation planning so you have the most memorable time!

    See you real soon!
