    Planning a trip at the end of August for 11 days. Last visit was unable to enjoy amenities at hotel, mini golf, and campfire/movie night. So we are thinking of getting only 7 day park tickets. Do we need to get Park Hopper option to enjoy any of these.

    Hi Cynthia!

    The Park Hopper option on the Magic Your Way ticket allows you to enter two or more different theme parks on the same day.  If you are only visiting one theme park, even if you enter it more than once in a single day, you do not need the Park Hopper option.  You also don't need the option to enjoy any of the amenities at your hotel.

    By the way, you do not have to purchase the Park Hopper option up front.  You can wait until you are at Walt Disney World and find yourself at a second theme after already visiting one earlier in the day.  In that case you can just purchase the option when you need it.  However, remember that it will cost the same for the Park Hopper option whether you buy it on the first day or the last day of your trip!

    Have a magical vacation!
