    If we do a park per day ticket and do not do park hopper per preference does it matter what days you go to what parks. Just wondering if I have a ticket to Epcot but the early magic hours are at another park that would be disappointing. Please explain.

    Hi Kenneth,

    You have come to the right place! Thanks so much for stopping by the Disney Parks Moms Panel, as the whole reason that we're here is to help Guests like you through the planning process so that dreaming about your Disney vacation is fun and stress-free!

    I'm happy to let you know that when you purchase your theme park ticket, you will need to select a start date for your ticket (unless you add the Flexible Date Option), but you won't need to choose which theme park you're going to on which date. As long as you enjoy all of your theme park days before your ticket expires, you'll have the freedom to pick different parks on different days. To plan where you'd like to be each day, I'd suggest checking out the park hours calendar. Extra Magic Hours are definitely a great way to enjoy some additional theme park fun without as many people around, so if you'll be staying at a Disney Resort hotel, feel free to take advantage of them! If we don't have the Park Hopper Option tickets, my family likes to plan days where the park hours are longer. We love soaking up as much magic and fun as possible! With that said, though, we don't usually plan more than two back-to-back full park days before enjoying a day off at our Disney Resort hotel to sleep in, swim in the pools, and enjoy a nice Table-service dinner or visit to Disney Springs in the evening.

    Please come back and see us again as you have more questions, Kenneth. We're always here and happy to help! I hope that you have a truly magical vacation!
