    My wife and I are planning on purchasing a 3 day pass but am wondering if there is an option to just purchase a hopper pass for one of those days? Thanks!

    Hi there, Robert! Welcome to planDisney.

    I see that you are planning a trip to the Most Magical Place On Earth in just about a month's time. I bet you are getting so, so excited! June is such a great time to visit. The weather is sunny and warm - perfect for the pool. 

    Robert, when you purchase tickets they are kind of on an all-or-nothing basis. If you purchase your tickets as part of a package they all will need to be the same. You can choose to do a 3-day standard theme park ticket that allows you entry into one park per day or you can choose to have a 3-day park hopper pass. Unfortunately, you are not able to mix and match. However, if you aren't buying Walt Disney World Theme Park tickets as part of a vacation package you could always purchase a 2-day standard theme park ticket and then a separate one-day park hopper ticket in addition. This would give you an itinerary like you are hoping for, however, the cost will be a bit higher. When you buy multiple theme park ticket days, you do get a little bit of a price break on the per-day rate. Purchase that additional park hopper would be at the full price. At that point, I would encourage you to at least price compare what a 3-day park hopper ticket would run you versus what a two-day standard theme park ticket and a one-day park hopper would cost. I'm guessing they'll be pretty close and at that rate, you might as well just upgrade the 3-day standard tickets to park hopper tickets instead. 

    Park hopping is my favorite way to spend a Disney day, Robert, and I think you will really enjoy it too. I like to visit either Magic Kingdom Park, Disney's Hollywood Studios or Disney's Animal Kingdom Theme Park during the day and then enjoy EPCOT during the evening hours. It's a perfect park to sip and snack for dinners! Park hopping hours now start at 2:00 p.m. and last until each park closes in the evenings. To park hop, Robert, you'll still need to make a park pass reservation for the first Walt Disney World Theme Park you plan on visiting each day. Then, after 2:00 p.m. you are able to visit any or all of the other theme parks for the rest of the day. 

    I hope this helps. If you have any other questions about this, or anything else, please feel free to stop back by and ask me. I'm happy to help! 

    Have fun!

I love all things Walt Disney World.  In fact, since becoming Annual Passholders, my family of 3 is always hopping in the car for a quick trip to visit with Mickey Mouse!  I've been known to make the 8 hour each way drive to Walt Disney World (in one day!) to indulge in a Mickey Waffle or enjoy a sunny day at Disney's Typhoon Lagoon Water Park.  I may have a small family, but we are always up for some BIG fun at the Walt Disney World Resort.   Learn More About Jackie
