    We are planning a trip in July and have the park hopper plus tickets. Can we use the water park option on our arrival day before we have used one of the park days?

    Cowabunga, Amanda! 

    Welcome back to the Disney Parks Moms Panel. Thank you so much for sending us another vacation planning question. 

    I hope you're ready to grab shell and enjoy one of your Walt Disney World® Resort Water Park days on your arrival, because you can absolutely do that! When adding the water park option to your tickets, you do not need to have visited a theme park first. 

    Additionally, if you will not have a vehicle, and you are staying at an on-property resort hotel, you have the option of storing all your luggage with Bell Services and then heading to the water park of your choice via Disney Bus Transportation. 

    I hope this is helpful in your planning, Amanda. I'd also love to know which water park you plan on heading to, I would love to give you advice on how to maximize your day based on your family's needs. I love both water parks and I am here to help. 

    Have a righteous day!
