    When you purchase a park hopper plus ticket, say a 6day ticket plus water park, how many days of fun do you actually have? only 6 days to do it all? or 6 days of theme park plus 6 more days of water parks, etc a total of 12days of fun? or something else?

    Hey, Jason! Welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel and thanks so much for stopping by with your question. It sounds like you have quite a splashtastic trip planned! Walt Disney World Resort moved to a date-based ticketing structure last year and implemented "valid dates of use" for its Disney Theme Park Tickets. Each ticket can be used over a set number of days, which is determined by the ticket length, or until all entitlements have been used. While regular 6-Day Disney Theme Park Tickets and those with added Park Hopper option are valid for nine days from the designated start date, the Park Hopper Plus option adds on a day to this, stretching the validity window of your tickets to 10 days.

    The "Plus" visits included in your Disney Theme Park Tickets include admission to these Resort activities:

    * Disney's Blizzard Beach Water Park
    * Disney's Typhoon Lagoon Water Park
    * One round of golf at Disney's Oak Trail Golf Course (tee time reservations required and subject to availability)
    * ESPN Wide World of Sports (some events require additional admission, valid only on event days)
    * Disney's Winter Summerland Miniature Golf Course (one visit per day before 4:00 p.m.)
    * Disney's Fantasia Gardens Miniature Golf Course (one visit per day before 4:00 p.m.)

    Since you will have 12 admission types to use over the course of 10 days, I encourage you to do some strategic planning to make full use of your tickets. Visiting more than one Plus locations will use more than one of those admissions. You could plan to visit Disney's Winter Summerland Miniature Golf on the day you are at Disney's Blizzard Beach Water Park to use two of your Plus admissions. Lounging at a water park in the morning could be an easy start to your day before enjoying a theme park in the evening.

    I hope this helps you plan for your Disney Theme Park Ticket use! Thanks again for stopping by and please let us know if you have any other questions.
