    We have a Disney Vacation Package. We have a 5 day Hopper Pass and we will be on the property for 8 days. We plan to get there on Sunday and we plan to eat dinner in one of the parks. Does that count as one day of Hopper Pass?

    Hi Michael,

    Welcome back to the Disney Parks Moms Panel!  You are going to love having 8 days to fully explore Walt Disney World Resort

    The answer to your question is yes. Valid theme park admission is required to dine inside the theme parks. If you are only entering the park on Sunday evening for dinner, I would recommend dining at one of the Disney Resort hotels or Disney Springs instead. This would allow you to save your 5-Day Ticket with Park Hopper Option to use on days you have ample time to fully experience everything the parks have to offer. 

    I'm so sorry if this was not the news you were hoping to hEAR. If you have any additional questions or would like dining recommendations, please don't hesitate to visit us again. Best wishes for a magical trip!

    Happy Planning,
