    If I buy a park hopper ticket, do I also have to purchase the individual park tickets I’d like to hop to?

    Hi Lauren, welcome to planDisney!

    If you purchase a theme park ticket with the park hopper option, you do not need to purchase additional park tickets for the park you are hopping to.  The park hopper option allows you to visit more than one theme park per day, giving you more flexibility in your day.  Some Guests like to challenge themselves to visit all four theme parks in one day which can be fun if you are planning on experiencing only a few of the attractions in each park. 

    Currently, you can park hop to any theme park beginning at 2:00 p.m. EST. (subject to change).  Park Hopper Availability is included in the Hours & Events Calendar if you ever want to confirm the hours for your vacation days.

    Lauren, you will be visiting Walt Disney World during the time the EPCOT Flower and Garden Festival is usually held.  Although the dates haven't been announced for 2024 yet, you may be able to enjoy this special event during your vacation.  I like to view all the Disney character topiaries and beautiful flower gardens.  There is typically live music, presentations, and outdoor kitchens featuring festival food options.  

    Please let us know if you have further questions as you plan your magical Walt Disney World vacation!
