    We will be visiting Disney World, Orlando. If we buy a 1 day 1 park (base) ticket, is it possible to upgrade to a park hopper ticket on the day? If so, what is cost?

    Hi Marise!

    Thanks for stopping by planDisney with your question - I'm happy to help.

    I'm excited to hear you're planning a visit to Walt Disney World Resort! With all there is to see and do, there's a ticket for every kind of visit. Whether you're just planning to explore one Walt Disney World theme park or maximize your fun with a visit to all four, there's a magical vacation in your future. 

    If you purchase a 1-Day, 1 Park Per Day Ticket, and decide you'd like to visit more than one theme park, it's easy to upgrade your ticket with the Park Hopper Option. On the My Disney Experience Mobile App, choose the menu option in the bottom right-hand corner that looks like three stacked lines. Select the "Tickets and Passes" tab, and you should see a list of theme park tickets associated with your account. Select the ticket you'd like to upgrade, and you'll see an option to "Change Ticket". You'll then be able to change the ticket type to add the Park Hopper option. Once you pay for the upgrade, you'll be ready to park hop!

    If you want to wait until your arrival to upgrade your ticket, you can do it at any Vacation Planning window or at Guest Relations before entering the park.

    The cost to add the Park Hopper Option varies by date, so I'm unable to share a specific cost. If you'd like to price your ticket options on the Walt Disney World website for a specific date, you can see what the differences in price would be before you make your purchase. 

    I hope this helps, and that you have a wonderful time when you visit The Most Magical Place on Earth! 
    Diane W.
