    If I plan on attending the park 3 days and would like to hop parks possibly 1 day can I do that or do I have to purchase a park hopper for all three days?

    Hello and welcome to planDisney, Whitney! Thanks for stopping by with your question. 

    Park hopping is my favorite way to spend a Disney day, Whitney. You can always find me at the Walt Disney World Theme Parks first thing in the morning enjoying some of my favorite attractions. Then, right around lunchtime when the parks tend to feel their busiest, I oftentimes will head back to the Walt Disney World Resort Hotel that I happen to be staying at for some fun in the Florida sun lounging by the pool. I love to end the day snacking and enjoying a few drinks around the World Showcase at EPCOT for dinner. It's just such a fun day. 

    Whitney, when you go to purchase your Walt Disney World Theme Park tickets it is an all-or-nothing system. You cannot just upgrade one day of your ticket set to include park hopper options. You can purchase a standard two-day ticket and then a one-day park hopper pass if that is how you'd like to plan out your trip. I would encourage you to go ahead and just upgrade all of your tickets though. Park hopping gives you so much flexibility to be able to enjoy all of your must-dos of the Walt Disney World Theme Parks and then go back and hit up some favorite things again. Especially when you have just a few days to spend there, it really works out nicely. 

    I hope this helps, Whitney. If you have any other questions as you plan your upcoming Walt Disney World vacation, please feel free to stop back by and ask me. I'm happy to help. 

    Have fun!

Meet the Panelist: Jackie, North Carolina

I love all things Walt Disney World.  In fact, since becoming Annual Passholders, my family of 3 is always hopping in the car for a quick trip to visit with Mickey Mouse!  I've been known to make the 8 hour each way drive to Walt Disney World (in one day!) to indulge in a Mickey Waffle or enjoy a sunny day at Disney's Typhoon Lagoon Water Park.  I may have a small family, but we are always up for some BIG fun at the Walt Disney World Resort.   Learn More About Jackie
