    Can you use an extra day on your pass, as a way to park hop on the same day?

    Hi Sheri!

    That's a common question asked of the Moms Panel.  Unfortunately, the answer is no.  You can not go to two parks on the same day unless you have purchased the Park Hopper option. 

    So for example, let's say you purchase a 7 Day Magic Your Way ticket but you are only going to be at Walt Disney World for 6 days.  You visit only one park each day for your first five days.  On the sixth day, you go to one theme park in the morning.  Then you try going to another in the afternoon.  Even though you'll have one day left and you tell the Cast Member at the gate that you are willing to "use up" that remaining day, you won't be allowed in the second park.  To get in, you'll have to purchase the Park Hopper Option which can be done on the spot.

    You don't have to purchase the Park Hopper option early.  You can wait until you are at Walt Disney World to decide if you really need it.  A Magic Your Way ticket can be upgraded with the option as long as it is done within 14 days of first use.  Just keep in mind that the Park Hopper option costs the same whether it is purchased on the 1st day of your trip or the last.

    Have a magical vacation and write back if you have any more questions!
