    Can someone please explain how the park hopper and watermark option work on a 5 day plan?

    Hi Jasmine!

    Thank you for bringing your question to the Disney Parks Moms Panel. Walt Disney World offers a variety of tickets to accommodate everyone's perfect vacation and I'm glad to help sort out the difference between each for a 5 day visit!

    Multi Day Ticket w/ Park Hopper Option- This allows you to hop between the four theme parks as many times in a day as you would like for all 5 days of your stay. So on your first day you could visit Magic Kingdom, second day split between Disney's Animal Kingdom and Epcot, etc. This gives you the freedom to explore and change parks throughout the day.

    Multi Day Ticket w/ Park Hopper Plus Option- This ticket gives you the same freedom as the Park Hopper, with the addition of the 5 Plus entries (with a 5 day ticket). These 5 Plus entries can be used at:

    • Disney's Blizzard Beach Water Park
    • Disney's Typhoon Lagoon Water Park
    • One round of golf at Disney's Oak Trail Golf Course
    • ESPN Wide World of Sports
    • Disney's Winter Summerland Miniature Golf Course
    • Disney's Fantasia Gardens Miniature Golf Course
    • Disney Quest (for the remaining time it is open until July 2017)
    For these additional park entries you have 14 days from your first ticket entry to use the remaining Plus entries. So you can spread out and do 5 days hopping between each park then an additional 5 days at the 2 water parks if you like, visiting one a day. Each time you go to one of the Plus entry locations it deducts one from your balance. So if on one day you go to Magic Kingdom in the morning and Disney's Blizzard Beach later you've used a park day and a Plus entry in one day. If you visit both water parks on one day, you have used 2 Plus entries, but no park entries for that day. I hope this helps clear things up!
