A Quick Guide to the Disney Park Hopper Ticket

by Leap on October 30, 2018 236 Orlando
Don’t froget, no matter which ticket you choose, we can save you some green with our discount Disney tickets.

When it comes to purchasing Walt Disney World tickets, it seems as if there are endless options. Should you stick to one park per day or get hoppers? Do you want to add on water parks? When we planned our first visit to the parks, we weren't sure which ones to choose. Now we do, and we're hoppy to help you! We explain the details of the Disney Theme Park Base Ticket (formerly known as Magic Your Way) and the Disney Theme Park Ticket with Park Hopper Plus Option. This post is looking at what the Disney Theme Park Ticket with Park Hopper Option includes, and we can help you decide whether it's right for you. Let's hop to it!

Disney Theme Park Ticket with Park Hopper Option - Cinderella Castle with Crowds - Disney Park Hopper Ticket

What Is the Disney Theme Park Ticket with Park Hopper Option and What Does It Include?

The Disney Theme Park Ticket with Park Hopper Option allows you to visit one or more of the following parks each day of your ticket:

With the Disney Theme Park Ticket with Park Hopper Option, you could visit all four parks in one day if you wanted. (Heck, you could visit all four parks every day of your trip with it, but your frog legs would probably be pretty tired!) Visiting two parks in one day is the more popular option. We'll hop into the reasons when we recommend the Disney Theme Park Ticket with Park Hopper Option in a minute, but first we want to talk more about the ticket specifics.

How Many Days Do You Get with Disney Theme Park Ticket with Park Hopper Option?

Disney Theme Park Ticket with Park Hopper Option - Disney Park Hopper Ticket - Splash Mountain

As of Oct. 16, 2018, Disney moved to date-based ticket pricing, which means you need to know when you'll be visiting before you buy tickets. (You do have the option to purchase a Flexible-Date Ticket for an additional charge.) The date-based pricing applies to all ticket types, including the base ticket, the Park Hopper Option and the Park Hopper Plus Option.

Just like with the Disney Theme Park Base Ticket, the Park Hopper Option is available from one to 10 days. You do not have to use the tickets on consecutive days, but you do have to use them within a certain number of days after your start date. With the Flexible-Date Ticket, you have 14 days from first use, no matter how the number of ticket days.

Date-BASED Tickets Days of Admission Valid Use Period, Beginning on Start Date
2-Day 2 Within 4 days for Base and Park Hopper (5 days for Park Hopper Plus)
3-Day 3 Within 5 days for Base and Park Hopper (6 days for Park Hopper Plus)
4-Day 4 Within 7 days for Base and Park Hopper (8 days for Park Hopper Plus)
5-Day 5 Within 8 days for Base and Park Hopper (9 days for Park Hopper Plus)
6-Day 6 Within 9 days for Base and Park Hopper (10 days for Park Hopper Plus)
7-Day 7 Within 10 days for Base and Park Hopper (11 days for Park Hopper Plus)
8-Day 8 Within 12 days for Base and Park Hopper (13 days for Park Hopper Plus)
9-Day 9 Within 13 days for Base and Park Hopper (14 days for Park Hopper Plus)
10-Day 10 Within 14 days for Base and Park Hopper (15 days for Park Hopper Plus)

As an example, if you're planning a weeklong vacation to Disney World, you might decide to buy our 6-Day Disney Theme Park Ticket with Park Hopper Option. (By the way, this is one of our top-selling Park Hopper tickets!) This gives you and your tadpoles a few days away from the parks — maybe for a little rest and relaxation by the the pool or shopping at Disney Springs.

Keep in mind, that you save more per day the more days you play. For example, if you purchase the 6-Day Disney Theme Park Ticket with Park Hopper Option, it works out to a little more than $76 a day*. The 1-Day Disney Theme Park Ticket with Park Hopper Option, by comparison, is $178*.

*Prices as of October 2018; subject to change.

Is the Disney Theme Park Ticket with Park Hopper Option Right for Me?

The Disney Theme Park Ticket with Park Hopper Option offers more flexibility than the base ticket. You're not locked in to any one park per day, so it allows for more spontaneity.

The Disney Park Hopper Option ticket is a good choice if…

  • It’s an adult-only trip or you’re traveling with teenagers: Grownups and teens can move through the parks much faster than families with tadpoles. Plus we all know teenagers can change their minds on a dime.
  • You have visited Disney before: If you’re a Disney regular, you're more likely to pick and choose which rides and shows you want to see in each park vs. doing it all, so you'll be ready to move onto the next park more quickly.
  • You want to see a different nighttime entertainment or fireworks show every night: If you have the Disney Theme Park Ticket with Park Hopper Option, you can plan to end your evening watching whichever show you want, regardless of whatever park you visited during the day. For instance, you could spend your day at Disney’s Animal Kingdom, then hop over to Epcot and see IllumiNations: Reflections of Earth that night.
  • You are visiting during a less busy time of year: When the crowds are low, you can move through the parks much faster, so park hopping makes more sense.
  • You don’t want to commit to just one park per day or want the option to change your mind: As mentioned above, the Disney Theme Park Ticket with Park Hopper Option provides the most flexibility for the more spontaneous among us :)
  • You want maximum flexibility for ADRs and FastPass+ reservations: The most popular restaurants and attractions need to be booked as early as possible (up to 180+ for Advance Dining Reservations and up to 60 days for FastPass+ reservations), which means you are often committing to visiting a specific park on a specific day months in advance of your trip. Park Hoppers give you the flexibility to keep existing reservations, even if you decide to spend most of your day somewhere else.

We hope this overview of the Disney Theme Park Ticket with Park Hopper Option has been hopful as you plan your trip. We frogs always hop through the parks, but we know that doesn't make sense for all families (especially those who aren't frogs). No matter which you choose, we've got a discount Disney ticket that's right for you! We've also got a ton of other resources in our Orlando planning guide.

We have 2 Day Park Hopper tickets for July 1-5. We would like to combine two parks a day. Which parks should we combine together? Also, which rides should we make sure we ride with a 12 and 5 year old?

Reply
Jun 10, 2019 at 8:52 a.m. FrogBlog Says...

Hi Marie!

This one is tricky. Epcot and Hollywood Studios are the closest together in terms of proximity, so they make a lot of sense to hop between. However, the other two parks, Animal Kingdom and Magic Kingdom, will be where your tadpoles will likely want to spend the most time. Because of this, we suggest combining Animal Kingdom with either Epcot or Hollywood Studios (depending on the Crowd Calendar, including Extra Magic Hours). Then, hit whichever park is left with Magic Kingdom. We'd suggest hitting Magic Kingdom second so that you can finish off your evening with the fireworks. You can find more of our Park Plans here. Have a great trip!

We are planning our first trip to WDW from Australia and are staying onsite for 15 nights, we are planning on getting an 8 day park hopper ticket (as want to also do Universal whilst we are there). We currently plan to attend our first WDW park on the 8th Sept can you help me work out when my last date to go to a WDW Park would be as I have read things that say our tickets will expire 14 days after activation, 12 days after activation and I have to do 8 days straight. Thanks

Hi Jodie,

If you go to the details page of the ticket you are interested in, you can enter your date and get these details! For example, if you get an 8-day park hopper with a Sept. 8 start date, your ticket would be valid any 8 days between Sept. 9 and Sept. 19.

Disney offers several free modes of transportation to allow you to park hop. These include buses at all parks, boats and the monorail at some. Alternatively, Ubers, Minnie Vans and taxis are all available if you'd prefer.

With each ticket, do you get a fast pass with it? I just want to make sure I understand correctly.

Reply
May 7, 2019 at 1:24 p.m. FrogBlog Says...

Hi Nazira,

That's correct! At Walt Disney World Resort, FastPass+ reservations are included in your ticket. Regardless of where you are staying, you'll have access to book 3 per day in advance (30 days for those not staying at a Disney Resort hotel, and 60 for those who are staying at a Disney Resort hotel). Once you've used your initial 3, you'll be able to book more, one by one, as many times as you'd like. These reservations can be made via My Disney Experience (be sure you link your tickets first!). We hope this helps - let us know if you have any additional questions!

I have 2 day base tickets already but only going for one day .... Can I use 1 day in the morning go to Animal Kingdom and get my 3 fast passes then in the evening use my 2nd day base ticket and reserve 3 separate fast passes. The reason I ask is because I already purchased the 2 day base ticket without park hopper option but I am only going to be there one day now so just trying to utilitze my time. I know way more expensive I am more asking if Disney would allow me to use 2 separate base tickets the same day....didn't know if finger scanner would prevent that one ticket is under my account and my other day is under my mom account but in my name

You may get dinged at the gate because of the finger scan; we'd suggest heading to the ticket booth instead and seeing if they have any options for you that meet your needs without breaking the bank.

Apr 18, 2019 at 8:03 a.m. FrogBlog Says...

Hi Ann!

This will depend on the type of ticket and whether or not any days were used on it. Check on the back of your ticket to find the expiration date, and any fine print about use date (as many have a 14-days from time of use expiration). You can verify the amount of days available on your ticket (and its validity) by calling (407) 939-1289 or visiting Guest Relations.

Hi Maura!

This largely depends on who you are purchasing your tickets through; sometimes, when purchasing in advance, you can catch a great deal and it makes sense to take advantage now vs. upon arrival. But on the whole, there's no penalty for not buying the park hopper in advance :) They'll be able to upgrade you at Guest Services.

My plan is going 2 days, it's only the wife, my 5yo and the baby, so I'm inclining more on the base tickets rather than the hopper option. Question, should I buy independent 1-day tickets if I want to visit a different park each day? or would the 2-day option tickets do?

Hi Luis!

The 2-day ticket option is just fine for this instance. You can visit any park you'd like with the base tickets, you're just limited to one park per day.

Hi Linda!

We don’t offer pre-set plans for park hoppers since we don’t know which specific parks people are hopping to each day. But you can use the park maps that are included with each of our printable plans to see the best time to visit each ride or attraction within each park. We also include this information in our Orlando planning app for iPhone :)

We plan on Park Hopping Animal Kingdom one morning, and Hollywood Studios that afternoon/evening. This particular visit though, we are not staying on Disney property, so we will no be bussing from a resort to park. What do you recommend for getting around that day. Should we drive from park to park (7 in our party, Chevy Traverse), or take the terminal? We want to get to AK as early as possibly since fast passing the "Flight of Passage" is not an option this time. We will be there the last week of September, wait times will be down.

We are headed to WDW for a 6 day trip. Rather than buy a park hopper ticket, we are thinking of buying a 10-day base ticket and using the 4 tickets to visit an additional park on some days. If we should do this, would it be possible to re-enter the first park we started the day with, after using the additional ticket to enter a second park? Also, are tickets required to enter a park for a dining reservation? Thanks!

Hi Paul!

From our understanding, as soon as you activate your second ticket for the day, your first ticket is voided. Therefore, we don't think you would be able to re-visit your first park of the day after visiting your second park. Yes, tickets are required to enter a park for a dining reservation.

The only way to do this would be by purchasing your tickets separately (combining a one-day park-hopper ticket with two regular tickets) but that would be more costly. Otherwise, you do have to add park hopper for all three days.

Hi Brandy!

You can purchase tickets separately (or a la carte) - so do 2 day base tickets, 1 day park hopper - but this is likely to be more costly than a ticket package. When you buy ticket packages, tickets must all be (or not be) park hopper - so you can't select only one day to hop parks. We'd recommend purchasing park hopper for your whole trip.

Hi Praveen!

We would suggest a 2-day park hopper for your crew, so you can adventure throughout the parks and really experience everything they have to offer.

Hoppy planning!

Hi Rumiko,

The Park Hopper is a Disney ticket, so you'll only have access to Walt Disney World Resort parks. You'll want to head to SeaWorld's Discovery Cove! While there, you can experience the SeaVenture Underwater Tour where you wear a diving helmet and take a tour through The Grand Reef. You can also swim with dolphins at Discovery Cove!

What is the possibility of upgrading a magic your way ticket to a park hopper at the gate and what is the fee for upgrading?

Hi Karen,

If it is within 14 days of a Magic Your Way theme park ticket’s first use and the ticket has remaining admissions, you are able to upgrade the ticket at the park's gate. The cost depends on the ticket (the amount of days it's for), but can range from about $37 to $63 per ticket!

Hi! Can you use the park hopper pass at universal? Does this also include access to harry potter?

Hi there,

The Park Hoppers are Disney tickets used for only Disney Parks! For Universal Orlando park hopping, you'll need a Universal Park-to-Park ticket. These tickets allow you to hop back and forth between Universal Studios Florida and Universal's Islands of Adventure in the same day. Both Universal Orlando parks have The Wizarding World of Harry Potter, so you'll be to experience it. We highly recommend a Park-to-Park ticket, especially if you're a Harry Potter fan; with this ticket, you can hop on the Hogwarts Express to venture between the two parks!

what would yo recommend if I want to go to two parks but one each day? a 2day hooper or a single day separate for each park?

Reply

Hi Eduardo,

We would recommend the 2-Day Magic Your Way Ticket to save a bit of money versus purchasing a Park Hopper. Park Hoppers tend to be slightly more expensive and if you wouldn't be utilizing the ticket by visiting multiple parks per day, then there wouldn't be any need for it!

Hi,

I have a 6-day Disney trip coming up soon. I was given a one-day park-hopper ticket by a friend and I purchased an additional 5-day (non-park hopper) ticket plan.

My question: How do I make sure that I use the park-hopper ticket on a specific day rather than one of the 5 non-hopper tickets? (There is only one day that I want to hop between Hollywood Studios and Magic Kingdom and don't want to accidentally use a non-hopper ticket that day).

Thanks

-Missy

Hi Missy,

If they are linked on our MDE account and you have MagicBands (assuming this vs. hard tickets because of the question), then the only way you can do this is when you arrive, head to guest services and have that one day ticket prioritized over the other one.

I have park hoppers. I will be in MK on 12/14 which is a MVMCP day, so they close at 6. I have an ADR at Park Fare at 4:00. If I'm back at the MK gate by 6, will they let me back in to walk main street and see castle lighting before I have to leave at 7?

Hi we are currently at Disney. We have visited 3 of the parks so far and the forth today.. we have one more park pass for this week.. we have ages 2-12.. we really feel it would not be as fun for the 3 older kids to return to MK for another whole day.. there is one ride at AK we didn't get to do, and Epcot felt like a whirl wind trying to get to one FP to another.. we were wondering it it would be benificial or even doable and if so what's the best way to buy a hopper add on for the last day and go back to each park that we either missed a ride at or repeat a ride they really liked. Is there a way to do it and park at one place and use transportation to others. Example would be ..we didn't get to do avatar, and they really want to ride Everest again, some didn't get to ride frozen, and we havnt been to HW yet but should there be something there once the day is done that we need to go back to. I think we are satisfied not returning to MK. Thanks in advance!

Hello, I am going to Orlando for two days 1/15-1/16 and taking my three kids with me. They are 13, 11, and 8. They want to do Sea World but they can't decide on one Disney park so I am thinking about the hopper for one day. Is it worth the extra money for only one day and will I have the time to get through at least 3 out of 4 parks? Thanks, Rich

Hi Rich,

Sorry for the delay, but your comment ended up in our spam filter. If you only have one day for Disney, I would pick only one park, most likely Magic Kingdom. There is so much to do, and if you go on the 15th with the holiday, all of the parks will be busier.

If we stay for the 8:00 Star Wars Fireworks at Hollywood Studios, then walk (briskly) over to Epcot (via the Boardwalk), will Epcot still let us in even if we get there a minute or two before their 9pm closing time (so we can see Illuminations)? ... Or will we be "stuck" on the Boardwalk looking for another source of transportation back to our resort?

We go every year for Spring Break in March. With the addition of FOP in AK, I am considering purchasing Park Hopper. I just can’t see hanging out in AK for 2 full days. We will be in park 5 full days. My only concern is choosing FPs with hopper. I assume I can only choose the initial 3 in my first park, correct?

Hi Ann,

You can only make advance FastPass+ reservations in one park per day. So, you can make the advance reservations for any park you like (whether it's the first or second park you visit in the day), but all three have to be in that one park. After you've used your first three, then you can continue to make reservations while inside the park. Check out our guide to using FastPass+. Hope this helps!

With my 3 day park hopper will I be able to go in and out of the same park multiple times in a day? For example will I be able to go for a couple hours in the morning, go back to the hotel and then re enter that night. Would this count as one day?
