    Hello, I have a split stay reservation in September and Park Hopper + tickets. If I only go to a water park on any given day, I do not attend any of the 4 main parks, does it count towards my park days? Thank you so much. Heath

    Welcome back to Disney Parks Moms Panel, Heath!

    Oh, my, you have a practically perfect in every way plan for your upcoming trip to Walt Disney World. So well done!

    Your question regarding the "Plus" part of your Theme Park Ticket with Park Hopper Plus Option is a great one, as it seems a bit more complicated than it actually is. Glad you asked.

    Your Theme Park Tickets--and the options that go along with them--become active the first time you use a ticket to enter any park. However, think of that "Plus" part of your particular ticket as an add-on, as if you have the same number of (separate) Water Park/Sports-related tickets as you do Theme Park tickets. Have a 4-day Theme Park Ticket with Park Hopper Plus Option? You may enter any of the 4 theme parks on four different days, AND you may enter any of those additional venues on 4 entirely different days as well. Entering a theme park will not use a Water Park Fun & More entrance, and entering a Water Park will not use a theme park day.

    This great feature enables Guests to spread out their park touring however they'd like. Want to spend 2 days hopping among the four theme parks then splash around at Disney's Blizzard Beach Water Park on Day 3? You'll only use 2 theme park days and 1 water park day of tickets. Please note that "tickets and any other options purchased must be used within 14 days of first use", so plan your terrific tour accordingly. 

    Have so much fun on your visit to The Most Magical Place on Earth, Heath! As you plan, be sure to send us more questions as you think of them. We love to help!
