    What is difference between Park Hopper and Park Hopper plus?

    How are ya Navita? It's good to see you back at planDisney!

    The different theme park tickets at the Walt Disney World Resort are designed to help you tailor your vacation to your specific style. The difference between the Park Hopper Option and the Park Hopper Plus Option is simple!

    The Park Hopper Option grants you the ability to switch Disney Parks starting at 2 p.m. For example, you spend your morning in Magic Kingdom completing the Taylor's Magic Mountain Challenge(that's riding Space Mountain, Big Thunder Mountain Railroad, Splash Mountain, and Seven Dwarves Mine Train in one day). You catch the soon to be returned Disney Festival of Fantasy Parade and decide it's time to see a different Disney Park. So you Park Hop over to EPCOT to ride Soarin' Around the World and experience EPCOT International Flower & Garden Festival. Once when I was feeling particularly ambitious I hopped to 3 Disney Parks in one day via the Park Hopper Option. Exhausted is definitely an understatement!

    The Park Hopper Plus Option takes things up a notch. You can switch parks just like the previous option, plus you get a visit to another Disney attraction for each day you have a ticket. You could choose from Disney's Typhoon Lagoon Water Park, Disney's Fantasia Gardens Miniature Golf Course, and more to enhance your stay! 

    Navita, April will be here before you know it. I hope your visit to the Most Magical Place on Earth is everything you've dreamed of and more!

    Happy planning!
