    I just paid off our Disney trip but we have decided to get the hopper. Can I do it when we get there and will it cost the same as paying in advance? Also if we add a park day when we get there do we pay full price or discounted rate?

    Hi Rhonda!

    Thank you for bringing your question to the Disney Parks Moms Panel. Guests often plan on just doing one park a day, but then realize once they arrive that they'd prefer the Park Hopper Option, so I'm glad to let you know you can certainly upgrade your ticket once you arrive!

    Ticket upgrades must be done in person and can be completed at any of the ticket windows at any of the theme parks on property, a concierge desk at your Walt Disney World Resort hotel or inside of Guest Relations at Disney Springs. It must be done while you still have remaining admissions on your park tickets. You will pay the difference based on your original ticket regardless of when you upgrade. For example, the current difference between an adult 5 day single park per day and a 5 day ticket with Park Hopper Option is $75. Regardless of whether you upgrade your first day of arrival or when you only have one day left, it will cost $75, so I'd recommend doing it as early in your trip as possible! The price upon arrival will be the same as if you were to call and change your reservation and pay the difference beforehand.

    If you decide to add an additional day the same applies. It can be done at any of those locations and you must have remaining admissions on the ticket. For example, the current price for a 5 day Park Hopper ticket is $445. A 6 day Park Hopper ticket is $465, so you'd pay the $20 difference plus applicable taxes. These prices are subject to change, but if you play around with this theme park ticket link you can see the difference in price for each of your options.

    I hope this helps your family plan the perfect vacation! Please let us know if you have any other questions.
