    During our trip we intend to park hop on three different days. However, it is cheaper to buy 3 extra days in the park than to purchase park hopper. Am I able to purchase three additional days and use two passes per day or does it have to be a park hopper?

    Hi Penny ~

    That is a good thought, however, the system will not allow Guests to enter two different theme parks on the same day by using two separate single day tickets. If you want to visit two or more theme parks on the same day, you will need to add the Park Hopper Option to your tickets. When you enter a theme park, the system notes that entry along with the scan of your finger. If you try to enter a different theme park on the same day without the Park Hopper Option, the system will see that you have already entered another theme park earlier that day and entry will not be allowed.

    I love finding ways to save money on trips to the Walt Disney World Resort. Here are a few tips that have worked for me:
    * Bring your own food and water into the parks but keep in mind that glass (other than baby food jars) is not permitted in the theme parks.
    * Order entrees at quick-service dining locations without the sides.
    * Order a kid's meal or split a meal.
    * They do offer free ice water at quick-service locations.
    * Bring Ziplocs to use for leftover grapes or carrots you have at meals to snack on later.
    * Eat some meals in your room. There are some local places that will deliver groceries to your resort.
    * If you make advanced dining reservations, make them for a late lunch. You get big portions and you can eat lighter for dinner when meals are typically more expensive.
    * Buy ponchos, umbrellas, and water misters prior to your trip.
    * If you have kids in your travel party, bring your own light up necklaces or toys to use at night.
    * Buy souvenEARs for your kids ahead of time and bring them with you.
    * Buy Disney Gift Cards anytime you have a little extra cash to save and use on your trip.
