    Hi I'm booking my holiday to Disneyworld next year in April! I am purchasing the water parks option, do I need the park hopper option to visit say Magic Kingdom in the morning and Blizzard Beach in the afternoon, then back to MK? Thanks

    Hello Melinda,

    Navigating the Walt Disney World ticket options can be a little confusing but I am happy to help you decipher which works best for you. 

    A base theme park ticket allows Guests to enter ONE of the four Walt Disney World Theme parks per day; Magic Kingdom park, Epcot, Disney's Hollywood Studios or Disney's Animal Kingdom park. Guests can enter and reenter their park of choice, for the day, as many times as they like.  With the park hopper option, Guests can enjoy same-day access to any of the four Walt Disney World theme parks. Guest, also, have the option to add-on the Water Park Fun & More Option to any of the above ticket selections. 

    If your family is planning on visiting one Walt Disney World theme park per day, for example; Magic Kingdom park in the morning, Blizzard Beach for an afternoon splash and back to Magic Kingdom park for some nighttime festivities; then the base ticket plus Water Park Fun & More Option is perfect for you. Park hopper tickets with Water Park Fun & More Option would be your best option if you are planning to start your morning at Disney's Hollywood Studios, travel to Blizzard Beach for a cool down and then finish your evening at Epcot. Because you are entering two different Walt Disney World theme parks in one day, you will need the park hopper option. 

    If I can be of any further pixie dusted assistance feel free to ask and may your upcoming stay at Walt Disney World be filled with many magical and memorable moments.
