    I will be going to WDW in Oct. I have one ticket for Magic Kingdom, I plan to buy another park hopper when I get there, I won't be hopping on my Magic Kingdom Day. Is this the best way to go? Or is it cheaper to buy online before I go.

    Hi, Vicki!

    You have a few ticket options available:

    Option #1:  Do as you plan.  Use up your one day ticket, then buy a new ticket for your remaining days. Tickets can be purchased at any theme park ticket window or right at your resort.

    Option #2:  Buy your new Park Hopper ahead of time to save you some time once you arrive.  You can do this online at and have the tickets mailed to you. 

    Option #3:  Buy your tickets ahead of time at your local AAA office or online at  Both will save you a few dollars on tickets.

    Option #4:  When you arrive in WDW, take your existing ticket to your Resort Concierge or a Guest Relations desk. They can take the value of your current ticket and just add it to a new ticket so you are all-in-one! 

    Any of these options will work and get you what you need.  Just decide what will be the easiest method for you.  Good luck!
