    I am travelling to Disney World in October and had purchased park hopper tickets. With the new park visitation rules, do you know if Disney will automatically change my ticket and refund me or should I call to change that?


    Thanks for your question!

    I am getting this question a lot. Here is what is going on;

    Disney has established a few options for guests who have Park Hopper tickets. This way you can choose the option that best suits your needs. These choices include; 

    Extend your Ticket: All tickets have been extended to be valid through to September 26, 2021. This way you can use the tickets whenever you wish, and of course if Disney returns to allowing Park Hopping, you can do just that. This is ideal for guests who choose to return at a later date. 

    Modify your Ticket: Some tickets and vacation packages can be modified. You would have to contact either your Disney Vacation Planner, or contact the Disney Reservation Center at 407-934-7639.

    Cancel your Ticket: You can cancel your tickets, or your vacation package, by contacting either your Disney Vacation Planner, or calling the Disney Reservation Center at 407-566-4985.

    What I would suggest to you is to call to modify your ticket or vacation package. This way you can see the variety of options available to you from there, and pick the one that makes the most sense.

    One further thing I recommend you do in your planning is to take advantage of the one park per day schedule. My family loves to pick out two activities in any given park to save for the evening. These get us excited to return to that park later in the day, after some relaxation time at the resort. Sometimes we choose outdoor activities, as it will be cooler at night. Other times it is planning an all-snack dinner back in the park. For those meals we buy some grab-and-go items that are unique to the park to eat as we walk around and explore the different lands. This method of snack-and-share meals is both fun as a family, and has helped us discover some new favorites, like the savory waffles from Sleepy Hollow and the hummus fries at the Morocco pavilion at EPCOT.

    Write us back if you need some more suggestions.

    Have a Magical Vacation!
