    I am purchasing a package that includes the room accommodations and two day passes for Magic Kingdom. Can I add a park hopper once I check in to pick up my tickets or is that something that has to happen ahead of time?

    Hi Alexis!

    I'm so excited to hear that you are getting ready for an upcoming Walt Disney World Resort vacation and I know you are going to have a fantastic vacation staying at a Disney Resort hotel! I love the incredible benefits that come with a stay at the Disney Resort hotels. Your trip will start with ease as you take Disney's Magical Express from Orlando International Airport to your vacation "home", you can enjoy the theme parks with a limited number of other Guests during Extra Magic Hours, you will receive complimentary MagicBands for your stay and much more!

    You can definitely upgrade your theme park tickets to add the Park Hopper Option. Simply visit any Guest Relations location, theme park ticket window or your Disney Resort hotel lobby concierge desk and they can upgrade your tickets! Keep in mind that you must complete your upgrade within 14 days of your ticket's first use and while you still have remaining admissions on your ticket. I recommend that you complete your upgrade at the start of your trip so you can hop between the theme parks throughout your vacation.

    Alexis, be sure to keep an eye on the Disney Parks Blog as you continue planning to get the latest news and announcements about the magic you will be able to enjoy during your visit! Come back to see us if we can help you again. T-T-F-N, ta ta for now!
