    Hi, I was confused as to how my theme park visits are tracked. I didn't get the park hopper add on, so was wondering how they know I visited one?Also,we are staying at the Wilderness Lodge), so can we see fireworks at night and Animal Kingdom same day?Thx


    Your theme park tickets will go through an electronic scanner upon entry into the park. So, if you try to go to another park, your ticket will be denied if you don't have the park hopper option.

    As for seeing the fireworks from Wilderness Lodge, that can be hit or miss. The surrounding landscaping is very wooded to have that Pacific Northwest feel. However, I have heard the 6th and 7th floor with "woods" view or "Magic Kingdom" side often have views of the fireworks, but you might be seeing them through open breaks in the trees.

    Animal Kingdom does typically close earlier than the other parks, so you may be able to get back to your resort to try to see the fireworks.

    I really hope this can help you in planning your itinerary and may your trip be full of magical surprises!
