    If I have a reservation at one park and a park hopper reservation for a different park the same day, can I go to the first park, leave, and come back to the first park later in the day, and not use the park hopper option for the second park?

    Hey there, Emily! Thanks for stopping by planDisney to talk to me about your upcoming Walt Disney World vacation. 

    Emily, with your standard theme park ticket and a park pass reservation, you are able to leave and reenter the same Walt Disney World Theme Park on that particular day. It gives you in and out access all day long, as many times as you'd like. If you have upgraded your tickets to include the park hopper option, you can leave and reenter the same park or you can hop to others throughout the day. With either ticket option that you choose, you are only able to make park pass reservations at one Walt Disney World Theme Park each day. For park hopping, you'll need to visit the theme park with the park pass reservation first. This sort of "activates" your hopper pass. Park hopping hours now start at 2:00 p.m. each day and last until each park closes in the evening. It is not necessary or even possible to hold multiple park pass reservations for one day, so you won't need to worry about that. 

    When you purchase theme park tickets, Emily, it's kind of an all-or-nothing system. Meaning, if you purchase standard park tickets that allow you entry in one park per day, that's what your tickets will be for your entire trip. If you purchase park hoppers it will also be for the entire length of your ticket. You aren't able to mix and match different days with different ticket options. 

    I hope this helps clear up any confusion you might have had about this, Emily. If you have any other questions, please feel free to stop back by and ask me. I'm happy to help. 

    Happy holidays!

Meet the Panelist: Jackie, North Carolina

I love all things Walt Disney World.  In fact, since becoming Annual Passholders, my family of 3 is always hopping in the car for a quick trip to visit with Mickey Mouse!  I've been known to make the 8 hour each way drive to Walt Disney World (in one day!) to indulge in a Mickey Waffle or enjoy a sunny day at Disney's Typhoon Lagoon Water Park.  I may have a small family, but we are always up for some BIG fun at the Walt Disney World Resort.   Learn More About Jackie
