    If I have a water parks and more ticket for 7 days and I choose a water park one day instead of going to a theme park do I have 7 theme park days and 1 water park day or does the water park count as a theme park day?

    Hi Angelia,

    Welcome to planDisney! I hope you're looking forward to your Walt Disney World Resort getaway, and I'm so glad you stopped by so we can join in on the planning fun!

    Through the years Disney has changed the name of the theme park tickets a few times. While the general idea behind the tickets hasn't changed, a few details like the amount of time you have to use your ticket may have. It sounds like you have an older ticket called a Water Park Fun & More, which is similar to the current Park Hopper Plus option. Both of those options allow you to visit the four theme parks (Magic Kingdom Park, EPCOT, Disney's Hollywood Studios, and Disney's Animal Kingdom Theme Park) for the number of days you have purchased, so in your case, seven. They also allow you to park hop, which is currently permitted beginning at 2 PM each day, although that is subject to capacity limitations. In addition, you receive the same number of visits to additional fun venues as theme park days, so in your case, that is also seven. Do note, though, that those are number of visits, not number of days. Under the phased reopening, not all of the additional venues are currently open, but you could use your additional visits to enjoy Disney's Blizzard Beach Water Park, Disney's Oak Trail Golf Course, or Disney's Fantasia Gardens Miniature Golf Course. Just note that if you play a round of golf and visit the water park on the same day, that would count as two visits. Those additional venues are counted separately from your theme park visits, though, so they would not count against the number of theme park days you have on your ticket. I know it sounds a little bit confusing, but you just need to think of your experiences in two separate buckets - a theme park bucket that counts the number of days and an "extras" bucket that counts the number of visits. 

    If your ticket is older and unused but has expired, it may be necessary to apply the value of it to a new ticket before being able to use it. I'd also encourage you to double-check the expiration date so that you can make sure to build your itinerary with all of the fun before your ticket expires. Please don't hesitate to contact a Cast Member if you need any assistance as they'll be able to access the specific details related to your exact ticket.

    Thanks so much for visiting us at planDisney, Angelia, and know you're welcome any time you have a Disney-planning question. I hope you have a truly magical vacation enjoying so many experiences at Walt Disney World Resort!
