    If you have a park hopper plus ticket, can you go to a water park for your first day, or do you have to go to a theme park to "activate" the ticket?

    Hello, Jean!

    Welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel! We are delighted AND honored to answer your question!!

    First of all, you are going to LOVE the flexibility and savings you are going to receive purchasing your Disney Magic Your Way Theme Park Tickets with the Park Hopper Plus Option! My absolute favorite Disney Water Park is most definitely Disney's Typhoon Lagoon! Make sure you experience Crush 'N' Gusher...it is a total blast - LITERALLY!

    Now, are you ready for some MAGICAL news?! I am very happy to inform you that you CAN visit a Disney Water Park on the first day of your vacation without "activating" your ticket at a Disney Theme Park. Don't you just love happy endings?!
