    If I have the water parks and more option on my ticket can i leave one of the major parks like magic kingdom and go to disney quest or a water park the same day with out having the park hopper option?

    Hi Crystal!

    Think of the Magic Your Way theme park tickets with or without the park hopper option as separate from the Water Parks Fun and More option.

    When you enter the turnstile for one of the four major theme parks (Animal Kingdom, Magic Kingdom, Epcot or Hollywood Studios), you'll deduct one park day from your ticket. You can exit and re-enter that same park as many times as you wish within the same day. With the park hopping option, you can enter and exit any of the four theme parks in a single day and have it only count as one park day. For instance, a guest may want to tour the Animal Kingdom in the morning then park hop to Epcot for the evening.

    When you add the Water Parks Fun and More option, you can easily go to a theme park in the morning and DisneyQuest or a water park later in the day. In fact, that's what we just did today! We spent the morning at the Animal Kingdom which deducted one park day from our tickets, then went to DisneyQuest which deducted one Water Parks Fun and More admission.

    Now, if you go to DisneyQuest and a water park in a single day, then that will require two admissions from your Water Parks Fun and More allotment. However, exiting and returning from the same venue such as DisneyQuest would only require one admission per person.

    You only need the park hopping option if going between the four major theme parks within a single day. I know it seems confusing at first but once you think of your admissions separate from each other, it becomes easier to plan your touring days!
