    We are staying for 5 days at the end of Nov. I would like the park hopper option for my first 2days and a base ticket for my last 2days of our stay. Our 3rd day we are attending the Xmas party and do not want park tickets. How is the best way to do this?

    Hi Jennifer,

    It sounds like you have a really great vacation planned! I think you'll love visiting Walt Disney World at the end of November. You'll likely enjoy lovely weather and the holiday decorations are not to be missed!

    When you purchase Theme Park Tickets, you have 14-days after the date of first use to visit the parks for the number of days on your tickets. This means you can buy a 4-day ticket and use it on consecutive days or take a day or two off in between uses. As long as all your visits occur within that 14-day time period, the rest is up to you!

    Looking at the prices, it looks like you will save a little bit of money if you purchase 4-day tickets with the Park Hopper Option added. This means you will have the Park Hopper Option for each day you visit the parks for less money than if you were to purchase two sets of 2-day tickets.

    And don't worry, taking a day off to attend Mickey's Very Merry Christmas Party is no problem. In fact, I think that's a great idea and a fun way to extend your vacation! If you plan to visit Epcot, I encourage you to check out the fantastic Candlelight Processional, which is a beautiful retelling of the traditional Christmas story along with live music.

    Jennifer, I hope you have a very merry visit to Walt Disney World this holiday season. Please let us know if you have any other questions as you plan!
