    Hi. If I purchase the 2 days park hopper option. Am I obligated to leave one park to go to the next one? For example. I want to spend one entire day at Magic K, the following day, I plan to come back to Magic K in the morning and then go to Epcot later

    Welcome to planDisney, Monica! Are you getting so excited about your upcoming trip to Walt Disney World Resort? Your tickets are going to be one of the most important aspects of your vacation, and I'm happy to chat with you about exactly how they work and what you can do with them.

    Monica, if you have a ticket with the Park Hopper Option, you are not obligated to leave a Theme Park and go somewhere else at any point during the day. Your ticket simply gives you the option to leave and go to a different Theme Park, if you so choose. Taking your example, if you have a ticket with the Park Hopper Option and a Disney Park Pass reservation for Magic Kingdom Park, you are welcome to spend the entire day there if you want to. The following day, you can go back to Magic Kingdom Park in the morning and then head over to EPCOT after 2:00 PM!

    A note about Disney Park Pass reservations: if you have a ticket with the Park Hopper Option, you only need a reservation for the first Theme Park you plan to visit that day. So, on both of the days of your trip, since you're planning on spending both days at Magic Kingdom Park, you will only need reservations for that Theme Park on each of those days. Once the clock strikes 2:00 PM, you can go wherever else you want, no reservation required!

    I hope this answers your question, Monica, and please let us know if there's anything else we can do to help you plan your magical vacation.
