    If I purchase a 2 day ticket can I add the park hopper to only 1 of the days?

    Hi Cristy,

    Greetings from a fellow Hoosier! I'm so excited to hear that you're planning a visit to "The Most Magical Place on Earth" this December! With so many wonderful holiday special events going on, you're going to leave with a heart FULL of Disney magic and Christmas joy!

    When you choose to add the Park Hopper option to your theme park tickets, it will be added to every day of your tickets. You'll be able to come and go from the parks however you'd like, though, and if you don't want to visit more than one park per day, you certainly don't have to! While you could purchase two separate tickets - one 1-day 1 Park Per Day ticket and one 1-day Park Hopper option ticket, that won't save you any money, although prices are always subject to change. If you do that, you'll need to make sure that you ask a Cast Member to stack your tickets within the system so that you're sure you're using the right ticket on the right day. For example, you wouldn't want to use your Park Hopper option ticket on a day when you had planned to be at Magic Kingdom Park all day long. To me, it's much simpler to just buy a two-day Park Hopper option ticket even if you won't be hopping on one of your days. Plus, you never know...you might like having the freedom to visit another theme park once you've arrived!

    Whatever you decide to do, don't forget that once you've purchased your tickets and linked them to your My Disney Experience account, you'll be able to make three FastPass+ selections per day. If you're staying at a Disney Resort hotel, you'll be able to make your selections 60 days prior to your arrival for the entire length of your trip, and if you're staying elsewhere, you'll be able to make selections one day at a time, 30 days in advance.

    Thanks so much for visiting us at the Disney Parks Moms Panel, Cristy, and please feel free to come back and see us again if we can help with anything else as you're planning your visit. I hope that you have a truly magical vacation!
