    We will be making our first trip to Disney in Sept and I'm trying to understand Park hopper. We have 6 day park pass, can we add the hopper to only one or 2 days? If we have restaurant reservation at one park do we need hopper to access another park?

    Hello, Aaron! Welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel!

    I am so excited to read that you and your family are about to enjoy your first ever Walt Disney World Resort vacation!  Are you ready for all the MAGIC that comes with every WDW vacation?  I sure hope you are because there will be lots of MAGIC around every corner!

    Unfortunately, you cannot break up your 6 day ticket purchase to include only 2 days of the Park Hopper option.  It is either all or none.  Now if you have a restaurant reservation which is located inside a Disney Park, admission is required.  Let's really look closely at your second question and use an example to assist you with the decision of whether to include the Park Hopper option or not. If you leave the Magic Kingdom to attend a dining reservation which is inside Epcot, you will need another park admission ticket to enter. With the Park Hopper addition, you can enter and exit as many parks in one day as you like.  If you prefer not to add the Park Hopper option, then I suggest deciding in advance which WDW Theme Park you plan to be at for each day of your visit and select restaurants within that park.  

    Diane's Tip of the Day:  There are many great dining options to choose from. Select WDW Resorts offer some great character dining experiences to choose from, so be sure to check them out today. 

    Have a MAGICAL day and "SEE YOU REAL SOON!"
