    what is a 'Day Ticket" as in 6 Day ticket with Admission to 1 Park per day

    Hi Crystal,

    Welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel! I am excited to hear that you have theme park tickets. This is happy news!

    It sounds like you have purchased base tickets that will give you access to one theme park each day for six days. This means that you can visit all four theme parks at least once plus you could re-visit two parks on days five and six of your trip. 

    With base tickets, you do not have the Park Hopper or Park Hopper Plus option. The Park Hopper Option would allow you to visit multiple parks per day. For example, you could visit Magic Kingdom theme park in the morning and Epcot in the evening. My family has done the Park Hopper Option in the past, but we have recently done base tickets only. The Park Hopper Plus Option would give you access to the water parks.

    Although we love just purchasing base tickets, we have to plan our dining reservations strategically. Since you have to have valid theme park admission to dine in a restaurant located in a theme park, we make sure our dining reservations are in the same theme park that we plan to visit for each day. Or, we dine in a restaurant that is not located in a theme park. 

    When you make your Fast Pass+ selections, you will need to make those selections in the same theme park. Prior to making Fast Pass+ selections, we decide which theme parks we will visit on each day of our vacation. I make our dining reservations 180 days in advance, then make our Fast Pass+ selections 60 days in advance since we always stay at a Walt Disney World Resort Hotel. If, on day one of our trip, we are headed to Magic Kingdom, I plan all of our Fast Pass+ selections and dining reservations for that park unless we plan to dine at a resort or Disney Springs.

    Crystal, enjoy those six-day tickets!
