    Can I upgrade a 1 day 1 park ticket to a park hopper, on the same day I use it?

    Hey James! It's great to see you here again at planDisney. 

    From your question, it sounds like you're gearing up for a trip to the Most Magical Place on Earth. How exciting! James, I love having the Park Hopper option and the freedom it allows to soak up even more pixie dust, enjoy dinner in a new location, or catch a nighttime show in a different park. 

    Now, I'm happy to share that you are welcome to upgrade your ticket and use the Park Hopper option on the same day. However, please keep in mind a few things, especially if you are traveling during the holiday season:

         - First, (while we all hope this doesn't happen) if a park reaches capacity, Park Hopping to that destination will be unavailable (even if you have a Park Hopper ticket). Make sure to have the notifications turned on in your My Disney Experience Mobile Alert so you don't miss a message. 
         - Second, (currently) park hopping becomes available at 2:00 PM. If you would like to visit another park in the afternoon, I would encourage you to visit a Guest Relations location by 1:00 PM to upgrade your ticket. You can find Guest Relations booths in the map section of your My Disney Experience Mobile App. Begin by clicking on the pin icon at the bottom of the screen. You can then filter by "Guest Services."

    James, no matter if you're hoping to stroll around the World Showcase, marvel at real-life creatures who steal the show, snap pictures in front of Cinderella Castle, or maybe channel your inner Jedi, I'll be wishing on a star that you have a fantastic day. Please come on back to planDisney with any additional questions!
