    Looking into getting an annual pass. Does it include park hopper? The website states "unlimited, same-day access". Does this mean I can only go to one park per day?

    Hi, Mary!

    We've been Annual Passholders for many years, and I can assure you that you may Park Hop to your heart's content using your AP!

    I see on the Walt Disney World website where it reads "Enjoy one year of unlimited, same-day access (during normal operation hours) to all 4 theme parks and much more." I think that this phrasing was intended to mean you can exit and re-enter the parks as often as you'd like in one day, for an entire year. However, the wording does make it sound as if they mean same park all day access, which isn't the case.

    If you're heading to WDW even twice within a year, the Annual Pass may very well save you money in the long run. As an Annual Passholder, you'll also be able to purchase the Tables in Wonderland card, which will provide you and up to 9 Guests a 20% discount on food and beverages (alcohol included) at over 100 participating theme park and resort restaurants, most of which are Table Service locations.  Take a look at tablesinwonderland.com for more information. Add that savings to your ticket savings, and you'll see that Annual Passes really are the way to go if you're heading to WDW twice within a 365 day period. We love ours!

    Send more questions about this or any other WDW subject that comes to mind, Mary; I love to help!
