Do you need a Disney World Park Hopper Pass?

Are you visiting Disney World and are confused about all the different ticket options available? It can seem complicated but if you break it down into easy steps then you will soon be able to work out which Disney ticket option is the right one for you and your family.

Your basic option is a Disney World Magic Your Way Base Ticket. This ticket lets you visit one park per day. The tickets expire 14 days after their first use and are not transferable to anyone else.

So just what is a Disney World Park Hopper ticket? Well remember that the base ticket gets you into one park per day. The Park Hopper allows you to visit more than one park in each day. So you could start at Disney Hollywood Studios in the morning and then travel to Epcot for the Illuminations fireworks in the evening. Or start at Animal Kingdom and catch the Festival of the Lion King, but go to Magic Kingdom in the evening.

Is a Park Hopper worth the extra money? The cost to add a Park Hopper option to any Base Ticket is $53.25. So it is the same price to add a Park Hopper option to any Disney ticket – whether it is for 2 days or up to 10 days. The per day cost is only $5.32 if you have a 10 day ticket but adds almost $27 a day if you have a 2 day ticket.

You really have to think about how you are going to plan your visit to Disney World to see whether you need a Park Hopper. It can be a great option and many guests always get a Hopper pass. But others never use it. You have to remember that it does take time to transfer from one park to another. So think carefully before choosing a Disney Park Hopper. Always remember too that you can upgrade your ticket if you change your mind. You can buy a base Disney World ticket and then upgrade to add a Park Hopper or Water Park and More option if you find that you need one.

Where should you buy your Disney World tickets? The first thing to say is that there are definitely certain places you should not buy your ticket – eBay and unauthorized ticket dealers. There are some Disney ticket scams out there so just don’t take the risk.

A safe place to buy Disney tickets? Disney itself of course – either online at Disney World or at the gate. But there is a safe alternative which will save you money. A reliable Authorized Disney Ticket dealer such as the one I recommend to all my guests Orlando Fun Tickets The savings can really add up – for example your family could quickly save up to $50 for a Disney 5 Day Park Hopper.

Don’t forget the Disney Water Parks and Disney Quest. You can also add a Water Park and Fun option which can be great value if you are going to visit a water park more than once. The cost of a Water Park and Fun option is just $53.25 which can offer excellent value for your family.
