    We are going to disneyworld in december, we only purchased single day tickets, can we upgrade to parkhopper when we arrive at the resort

    Hello there, Craig! Welcome to planDisney. I think it is so fun that you have a trip planned to the Most Magical Place on Earth in early January. There is no better way to kick off a new year! 

    For your trip in December, you can absolutely upgrade your tickets to include the park hopper option once you get there. You will need to upgrade your entire ticket duration. For example, it is not possible to use the first few days of your tickets as a standard base ticket with one park per day and then upgrade the last few days to the park hopper. You can upgrade at any time during your trip, but it will be for the duration of the tickets. 

    Park hopping looks a little bit different than it did before. Here's how park hopping is currently working:

    • Guests wishing to park hop must have valid theme park admission with the park hopper option
    • Guests wishing to park hop must have park pass reservations for the first theme park they'd like to visit each day
    • On the day of, Guests must scan in and enter the theme park with the park pass reservations first before continuing on to other theme parks later in the day
    • Park hopping hours now start at 2:00 p.m. and last until each park closes in the evening
    • It is not necessary or even possible to hold multiple park pass reservations for a particular day - just the first theme park you are planning on visiting is required
    • To make park hopping a little bit more convenient at this time, complimentary park-to-park bus transportation is currently being provided 
    You can upgrade your ticket at any ticket booth or Guest Relations window at any of the four Walt Disney World Theme Parks or at Disney Springs, Craig. Park hopping is my favorite way to spend a Disney day and I think you'll really enjoy it too. 

    If you have any other questions about park hopping, please feel free to stop back by and ask me. I'm happy to help. 

    Have fun and happy hopping!

Meet the Panelist: Jackie, North Carolina

I love all things Walt Disney World.  In fact, since becoming Annual Passholders, my family of 3 is always hopping in the car for a quick trip to visit with Mickey Mouse!  I've been known to make the 8 hour each way drive to Walt Disney World (in one day!) to indulge in a Mickey Waffle or enjoy a sunny day at Disney's Typhoon Lagoon Water Park.  I may have a small family, but we are always up for some BIG fun at the Walt Disney World Resort.   Learn More About Jackie
