    Hi there, is it possible to add park hopper for only 1 day of our trip. Our schedule doesn’t allow for park hopping 3 out of the 4 days but would like to have the option on 1 of the days if possible. Thank you in advance!

    Hi there, Amy!

    While we're not the Rescue Aid Society, we're always happy to help Guests from Down Under as they plan their magical vacations here at planDisney!

    Four days at Walt Disney World Resort sounds like a practically perfect way to kick off 2025! Whether you're hoping for thrilling twists, turns, and drops on attractions such as Guardians of the Galaxy: Cosmic Rewind, TRON Lightcycle / Run, and Tiana's Bayou Adventure, delightful eats, or plenty of character sightings, The Most Magical Place on Earth offers something for everyone in your party.

    As an avid Park Hopper myself, I completely understand the desire to potentially revisit some of your favorite magical moments from earlier in the trip, but unfortunately, the Park Hopper Option must be added to a theme park ticket in its entirety. This means that even if you were only to use this benefit for one day of your vacation, you would still need to purchase the option for the entire length of your ticket.

    Since you will only be able to utilize the benefit for one day, personally, I suggest foregoing the Park Hopper Option and putting those funds towards Disney Genie+ service, individual Lightning Lanes, or a character dining experience. I also think you'll enjoy having a full day in each theme park to fully immerse yourself in the details without worrying if you are maximizing the value of your ticket.

    Disney's Animal Kingdom Theme Park typically closes a bit earlier than other parks, so you might consider taking that evening to explore other magical destinations aside from theme parks such as Disney Springs or Disney's BoardWalk. Whether you're shopping, dining, or simply strolling, there's always a hint of magic in the theme park ticket required!

    Although this is likely not the answer you were hoping to receive regarding your ticket, Amy, I do hope I provided some helpful information and alternatives for you as you plan. If you have any additional questions or are in need of recommendations, feel free to stop back by. I'm always happy to help!
