    Hi Courtney, 

    Thank you for visiting the Disney Parks Moms Panel with your question.  Congratulations on purchasing your Theme Park Tickets, you are going to have a magical time at Walt Disney World Resort!

    Purchasing Theme Park Tickets can be a little confusing because there are so many options to take into consideration.  Base tickets provide entry into one of the four Theme Parks, Either Magic Kingdom Park, Epcot, Disney's Hollywood Studios and Disney's Animal Kingdom depending on which option you have purchased.  Base tickets also allow guests re-entry into the same Theme Park on the same day.  The Park Hopper Option and Park Hopper Plus Option which includes admission to Water Parks and other locations is not included with Base Theme Park Tickets.

    If you would like to add The Park Hopper Plus Option that allows entry into the water parks, you will need to upgrade your Theme Park Tickets.  This can be done at any Guest Relations, Ticket Window or Lobby Concierge at any Walt Disney World Resort Hotel.  Please keep in mind that only multi-day Base Tickets can be upgraded, single day Theme Park Tickets cannot be upgraded to the Park Hopper Plus Option.  If this is the case, it may work out to your advantage to purchase single day Water Park Tickets, as it is more economical to pay for just one day at the Water Park instead of adding another Theme Park day and upgrading to the Park Hopper Plus Option.  If you have a multi-day Theme Park Ticket, it will be more cost effective to upgrade to the Park Hopper Plus Option.  

    I hope you have a wonderful time at Walt Disney World Resort, Courtney.  Please let us know if you have any other questions, we are always happy to help.
