    I have 4 days at Disney. Two of those days exclusively at the MK. One of those days we want to hop between Epcot and HS and the last day we plan to go to AK. Can I buy 3 base tickets and 1 park hopper? I was told it’s all base or all hopper tickets?!

    Hi Sandra!

    Thanks for stopping by the Disney Parks Moms Panel. You are getting ready for an incredible vacation! I'm happy to hear that you are planning on spending two days at Magic Kingdom because there is so much to enjoy in this classic theme park. Be sure to take advantage of the FastPass+ System for your trip so you can minimize the time you spend in queues and maximize your time enjoy Walt Disney World Resort's attractions and entertainment.

    Your itinerary includes a day where you will "hop" between theme parks to enjoy both Epcot and Disney's Hollywood Studios in one day, so you will need the Park Hopper Option on your ticket. Standard theme park tickets will allow you to enjoy one theme park per day. By adding the Park Hopper Option to your ticket, you will be able to enjoy multiple theme park days. Unfortunately, when you add the Park Hopper Option to your ticket, you must add it to your entire ticket as you cannot add it to only one day of your ticket. So for your trip itinerary, you would need to purchase a 4-day theme park ticket with the Park Hopper Option.

    Since you will be able to visit multiple parks on each day of your trip, you should consider how you can make the most of your Park Hopper Option. You may be able to spend part of your second Magic Kingdom day enjoying some of your favorites at other theme parks. Or, Disney's Animal Kingdom often closes earlier than other parks, so you may be able to hop to Magic Kingdom or another theme park after your wild day at Disney's Animal Kingdom ends.

    Let us know if you have additional questions as you continue planning. T-T-F-N, ta ta for now!
