    Why have hopper passes when you fast passes can only be made for one park at a time?

    Hi there, Joyce!

    Welcome back to the Disney Parks Moms Panel! We're so glad you stopped by with your question!

    My family loves the added flexibility the Park Hopper Option gives us when visiting Walt Disney World Resort. Although Guests must book their initial FastPass+ selections for one theme park, my family uses multiple strategies for experiencing everything on our "must do" list. For example, I often book our FastPass+ selections for the second park we will be visiting. At times, I book our initial FastPass+ selections for our first park and once we use our third FastPass+ selection, I book an additional FastPass+ selection using My Disney Experience mobile app for the second park we will be visiting. We find the Park Hopper Option is beneficial when we want to take advantage of Extra Magic Hours, but plan to spend the majority of our day at a different park. We also love being able to park hop for additional dining options. Although you can definitely enjoy the theme parks without adding the Park Hopper Option to your tickets, I have found the flexibility it has afforded my family has been worth the additional cost.

    I hope this information has been helpful in deciding if the Park Hopper Option is right for your family. Let us know if you have any new questions, Joyce. We would love to assist you further in planning a magical trip!
