    park tickets-Hopper no wataer same as no hopper & water park. So really paying to hop within one park a day and water park same day? correct? so can do a park and water park daily for whole stay!

    Let me try to unravel this for you.

    First let's look at park tickets for the theme parks (Animal Kingdom, Magic Kingdom, Epcot and Hollywood Studios). You'll have the option of purchasing tickets with or without the park hopper add-on.

    Without the park hopper, you'll be able to visit 1 theme park per day. If you begin your day at the AK, return to your hotel for a rest, then you may only return to the AK later in the day. Some guests like to park hop. This allows more flexibility in dining and entertainment choices in a single day. For instance, you would be able to tour the AK in the earlier part of the day and then go to Epcot in the evening for dinner and fireworks. The park hopper would not allow you into a water park. The park hopper option is only valid for the four theme parks. Admission to the water parks is completely separate.

    To visit a water park, you must purchase a single day ticket to Typhoon Lagoon or Blizzard Beach OR add the Water Park Fun and More option to your theme park tickets.

    If you have a five day theme park pass, and add on the water parks, you'll then have five visits to the water parks, fun and more options.

    If you enter Blizzard Beach in the morning, you'll use one admission and have 5 visits left. If you exit, then return to BB later in the day, it only counts as one visit. However, if you visit BB in the morning and Typhoon Lagoon later in the day, you'll use 2 admissions in a single day.

    On our last vacation, we went to a water park in the morning, then DisneyQuest in the evening. We used two admissions in one day from our Water Park Fun allotment.

    Just remember that your Magic Your Way tickets with or without park hopping are completely separate from your Water Park Fun and More admissions.
