    We're planning our August 2018 trip and plan to visit the parks 3 days and 1 day one of the water parks. I'm confused as to what would be the difference if we buy 3 park days and 1 water park day or 3 park days and 1 park hopper plus day?

    Hi Ashley,

    Glad you stopped by today at the Disney Parks Moms Panel. Let me try to help you with your question so you can plan the best vacation ever.

    The Park Hopper Plus option for Theme Park Tickets gives you double the fun. First you can visit more than one Theme Park on the same say, but you also get to have fun at both Disney's Blizzard Beach Water Park and Disney's Typhoon Lagoon Water Park, and other awesome options like miniature golf and even a round of golf. With this option, you receive the same number of entries as days on your Tickets. For example, with a 3-day ticket and this option, you can visit any of the four Theme Parks on three different days, and you also get 3 admissions to the Water Parks or other options.

    Now, which one is the best value? The Park Hopper Option. Even if you do not intend on visiting more than one Theme Park on the same day, the cost is just a little more than one-day Water Park Ticket, but you get 3 admissions. If you want to visit more than one Theme Park on the same day, then the upgrade cost is minimal. Visit the Theme Park Tickets page and select the options to price it out. It's very easy.

    One last tip: Theme Park Tickets and all options are valid for 14 days from first use. But you do not have to use them on consecutive days, giving you the benefit of stretching your vacation and having more fun. Happy planning!
