    We are planning our Disney world trip for May of 2016. We have the 8 day ticket/parkhopper package. I was wondering if we go to a park when we arrive, and then another park that evening does one parkhopper work for both of those parks or each take one?

    Hi Chandler!

    A magical vacation awaits you! I know you must be excited. May is such a wonderful time of year to visit Walt Disney World Resort.

    Each day you enter a park will use one of your 8-day tickets. The Park Hopper Option is simply an add-on that will cover the length of your tickets. This means you are free to "hop" from park to park as many times as you like throughout your vacation!

    You can enjoy one park in the morning, take a break for a nap or a swim and enter another park in the evening and you will simply be using one "day" on your ticket. My family has been known to start the day at Magic Kingdom, take the monorail to Epcot for a meal and then a boat to Disney's Hollywood Studios for Fantasmic! How you use your tickets is up to you.

    I hope this answers your question, Chandler. Please let us know if we can help you in any other way as you plan.

    Have a Disney day!
