Disney Ticket Question

Parks, resorts, dining, attractions, vacations

I haven't been back to WDW since they implemented their new ticket prices 
and options.

We are going in December and are looking at ticketing options.

We have been their several times so we really don't feel the need to 
purchase a Park Hopper, but I do want to ask this question.

If we do decide to leave one park and go to another using our passes, can we 
park hop and just use up to days worth of admissions in one day?

Or will we not be able to hop at all?

I want to urge you to rethink the hopper option.  We didn't do it in January 
and we really regretted it.  Granted we went during off-season when the 
parks weren't open as late.  But I wished we'd gotten fewer days but added 
the hopper option - it's nice to go to one park in the morning and a 
different one in the evening.  And, as someone has already replied, you 
can't use up a day's admission to hop.

Maybe we have a bit of ADD, but we *always* hop.  Unless I was just going to 
WDW for an afternoon, I would never buy a pass that did not allow me to hop. 
Too many times we've been in a park to find it crowded, but leaving, maybe 
stopping for lunch at a resort or DD, and hopping to another park can make a 
big difference in our perception of the crowds and thus our attitudes and 
overall enjoyment of WDW.  For me, the park hopping option on MYW passes is 
the best $40 you can spend at WDW.

Considering that most people spend at least a couple thousand dollars for a 
week at WDW, why would anyone try to save $40.00 and take a chance of 
ruining even one day of the trip.

Thanks for the info and advice everyone.

We usually do buy a 5 or 7 day park hopper and just save the unused
days for later visits.  As I said, I haven't been to the World since
the new ticketing structure took effect so i was looking for some
info/opinions.

Looks like Park hoppers for us.

Also note that you can add the Park Hopper option to your tickets after the 
original purchase, even if you've partially used the ticket. So if you 
really wanted to, you could buy the base ticket without the hopper option, 
then if you find on day 3 that you really do need it, you can visit a guest 
services window and add it on. It'd probably take 5 minutes or less. That 
way, if you happen to go the entire vacation without hopping at all, you've 
saved the money.

Personally, I *know* that my group will be park hopping, so it's an option 
we always get for those in the group without Annual Passes.

Remember that if you intend to use the "unused days" in the future you 
will want to purchase the "no expire" option. If not your unused days will 
expire after 14 days from purchase.

Oops Randy... They expire 14 days from first *use*, not 14 days from the 
day of purchase.

We find the hopper option great to have because of the varied park
closing hours - AK at 5 or 6pm, MK at 7-8 or possibly later - depends

are in a park that closes early, we hop to one that is still open.
