    Curious about water park activities during the month of December? Trying to determine Park Hopper tickets versus the Park Hopper Plus. Thank You!

    Hiya Kayla! Welcome to planDisney!

    I'm excited about your upcoming visit to Walt Disney World during the holiday season! There is no better time to visit than when Main Street, U.S.A. is decorated in full holiday décor! And even better yet, Walt Disney World announced today that Mickey’s Very Merry Christmas Party is returning for the 2022 season. On select nights throughout November and December, Magic Kingdom will host this special event. Be sure to check the dates to see if you can fit this in during your stay!

    Where else can you vacation where one night you can enjoy a Christmas party with "snow" falling from the sky and the next day be splashing around at a water park! Disney Water Parks are open year-round and you can certainly enjoy them during your stay. Currently, Disney's Typhoon Lagoon Water Park is open and operating at this time while Disney's Blizzard Beach Water Park is undergoing a lengthy refurbishment. Make sure to check which park is open during your visit. The weather in December varies, but with average highs of 75°F, you will hopefully be able to carve out some time to enjoy the water parks. 

    When purchasing tickets, adding the Park Hopper Plus Option gives you access to water parks on as many days as your tickets are good for. For example, if you purchase a 5-day ticket, you'll be able to visit the theme parks on five different days, as well as the water parks on five additional days. You can also substitute some of your water park days for rounds of miniature golf if you want more variety during your trip. 

    Kayla, if you plan on visiting EPCOT during your visit, be sure to check any holiday celebrations that are going on there. The EPCOT International Festival of the Holidays will be underway by the time of your visit and there is plenty to look forward to. Continue to check the Disney Parks Blog for any news and announcements regarding this event!

    Have a magical day!
