    We are going for 8 days but only have a 4 day park hopper plus ticket. Does that mean I can use the water parks anytime while my tickets are active or can I only go once?

    Welcome to planDisney, Dana! I'm excited to hear about your upcoming visit to the Most Magical Place on Earth; it sounds like you are looking to fill your days with theme park and water park fun, park hopping, and enough time to explore all that the Walt Disney World Resort has to offer! That's my kind of vacation!

    Dana, by choosing the 4-Day Park Hopper Plus option, you've booked flexibility and fun! Over the course of 8 consecutive days, your ticket allows you entry and park hopping privileges to the theme parks on any four days, plus four additional entries to any of the following:

    • Disney's Blizzard Beach Water Park or Disney's Typhoon Lagoon Water Park (whichever is open as they operate seasonally at this time)
    • ESPN Wide World of Sports
    • Disney's Winter Summerland Miniature Golf Course (prior to 4 PM)
    • Disney's Fantasia Gardens Miniature Golf Course (prior to 4 PM)
    • Foot Golf at Disney's Oak Trail
    • Disney's Oak Trail Golf Course
    With this ticket, you may use the four additional admissions as you wish; my family loves to take a few days away from the theme parks and visit the water parks and mini golf courses on those days, as we also tend to book extra nights! You are also welcome to visit the water parks multiple times, as this ticket does not limit which extras you can choose, only the number of visits included!

    As you finalize your plans, it was just announced that Typhoon Lagoon will be reopening on March 17, so with your May arrival, it looks like you'll be catching waves at the biggest wave pool in North America! Don't skip the Crush 'n' Gusher for some poolside thrills, and take time to relax in Castaway Creek, where your worries are sure to float away!

    Dana, since you will have some extra days to fill with magic, I'd also recommend checking out some of the Enchanting Extras Collection options that are available outside of the theme parks. For our upcoming summer visit, my family is trying to decide between the Starlight Safari at Disney's Animal Kingdom Lodge and Horseback Riding at Disney's Fort Wilderness Campground. There are so many fun and unique opportunities beyond the theme parks - from art classes to sangria tastings, there's something for everyone!

    One last tip I'll leave you with today, Dana, is that your visit falls during one of the most beautiful EPCOT festivals - the EPCOT International Flower and Garden Festival! During this time, the park is in full bloom, covered in colorful topiaries of our favorite characters, and there are some delectable and unique food and drink options all around the park as well, so be sure to bring your appetite for fun and food! Check out the Foodie Guide to the festival here, so you can plan accordingly!

    I hope this has been helpful and that you enjoy every moment of your magical visit! Come back and see us again anytime!
