    Hi! If I buy a one day pass, can I upgrade to a Park Hopper that day once in the park?

    Hi Gary!

    Thanks for bringing your question to us here at the Disney Parks Moms Panel. I can't tell you how many trips I've thought "I'll just do one park", then once I arrive I'm so ready to maximize my day and end up upgrading my ticket!

    I'm delighted to let you know that you can certainly upgrade your ticket at any point while admission is still valid. In my experience, the only exception to this would be promotional tickets that don't have a true face value to them. If you purchase a Single Day, Single Park Admission and decide at any point in that day that you'd like to upgrade your ticket to include the Park Hopper Plus Option or add additional days it's very simple! To do so, you'll just need to visit any theme park ticket window, Guest Relations location or the lobby concierge at any Walt Disney World Resort hotel. Let the friendly Cast Member there know what you'd like to do, they'll get your ticket updated and you'll pay the difference in ticket price. You'll be ready to park hop 'til you drop in no time!

    I hope this helps in planning your next visit! Please come back and let us know if you have any other questions.
