    If we are visiting HS and want to go to Epcot, can we buy a park hopper at HS the same day we want to visit, or does it have to be in advance?

    Dear Missy,

    Thanks for reaching out to us here at the Disney Parks Moms Panel with your question about Park Hopper tickets.

    Yes, you can definitely upgrade your tickets to Park Hoppers while you are at the Walt Disney World Resort, no problem. You must upgrade your ticket for the entire length of your stay, though, so if you think that you're going to be using Park Hoppers for even one day, it behooves you to upgrade at the beginning of your trip so that you can maximize the value of your upgraded tickets. 

    Moms Panel tip - There is a new service, Express Transportation, that allows you to go from Park to Park "backstage" in express buses, to avoid having to go through security multiple times. It is very reasonably priced and is a great value if you want to spend a few days Park Hopping. It saves you a ton of time and I highly recommend it. 

    Have a magical vacation!
