    We will be staying at a wdw resort for 7 nights, 8 days. But, we only want to purchase a 6 day park hopper. Do we have to use the 6 days consecutively? Or can we space them out over out 8 day stay?

    Hi Cayce!

    Thanks for stopping by the Disney Parks Moms Panel. It sounds like you are planning a magical trip to Walt Disney World Resort and I'm happy to help. I think a 7-night stay is such a good length for a vacation because it allows you plenty of time to explore all of the magic available at the theme parks, Disney Resort hotels and Disney Springs. All of the days on your Walt Disney World Resort theme park tickets must be used within 14 days of your ticket's first use, meaning that you don't have to use your ticketed days consecutively and you can include "rest days" during your trip where you don't go to a theme park.

    When I am planning my family trip, I always include days during the middle of our vacation where we can enjoy all of the shopping, dining and recreation that Walt Disney World Resort has to offer. Plus, I have found that for my family, scheduling a day during the middle of our vacation where we can sleep in, enjoy our Disney Resort hotel pool, explore Disney Springs and experience some of the fantastic dining experiences available gives everyone in my family plenty of energy for the rest of the trip!

    Please let us know if you have any other questions as you continue your planning. T-T-F-N, ta ta for now!
