    I purchased a 4-day park hopper pass for my family and myself. Is there a site that I can go to to fully understand how a park hopper pass works? Also, does have a hopper pass mean I can get fast passes or is that something separate? Thanks

    Hello again, Deanne! Welcome back to the Disney Parks Moms Panel!

    There are three Walt Disney World theme park ticket options: Admission to 1 Park Per Day (base ticket option), Park Hopper Option and Park Hopper Plus Option. At the link I just included for tickets, you can click "how many days" near the top of that page to find explanations of each type of ticket by choosing the options on the left side of the screen that pops up, but I'll give you a quick look at the Park Hopper options, as well!

    With the Park Hopper Option, you can choose to visit multiple theme parks in the same day, so if you visited Magic Kingdom Park that morning, you could "hop" over to Disney's Animal Kingdom in the afternoon, then "hop" again over to Epcot for dinner. Park hopping just means that you can visit any of the four theme parks on the same day. The Park Hopper Plus Option gives you "plus visits" to Disney's Blizzard Beach Water Park, Disney's Typhoon Lagoon Water Park, Disney's Oak Trail Golf Course, ESPN Wide World of Sports (on event days), Disney's Fantasia Gardens Miniature Golf Course (prior to 4:00 p.m.), and Disney's Winter Summerland Miniature Golf Course (prior to 4:00 p.m.). With this option, if you had a 4-day Park Hopper Plus ticket, you would have access to the theme parks for four days AND four "plus visits" to the locations I listed.

    With all tickets, including your Park Hoppers, you have access to FastPass+. If you link your tickets to your My Disney Experience account, you can select three initial FastPass+ per person, per day. This is included with your admission and I highly recommend using this service to minimize wait times throughout your day!

    Have fun on your trip, Deanne! Please visit us again with any other questions you may have.
