Ticket Budgeting Question

My wife and I are going for a short stay in Dec and are looking at ticket prices. We plan on visiting 1 park the first day, 2 parks the second day, 2 parks the third day and 1 park the 4th day. The question is we can get a 6 day MYW pass for $225 or a 4 day park hopper for $263. Can't we just by the 6 day MYW base ticket and get charged an extra day for the days we visit 2 parks or are you just allowed to go to one park per day? Thanks for any help.

one day, one park, one ticket

Don't you think Disney figured this out long before?

A base ticket is one major (theme) park per day. You are allowed to re-enter the same park if you leave it on one day, but it can only be used at the one park.

Note that the ticket will state on it either "Not Valid For Park Hopping" or "One Theme Park Per Day". That should be a hint.

If you put the ticket in the turnstile of another park the display on the Guest side of the turnstile will be "ACCESS DENIED". The top line of the display on the Greeter side will give information about the ticket, and the second line of the display will say "CROSSOVER NOT PERMITTED". The turnstile will not unlock.

This is because Disney charges $3.00 per day over four days on a ticket, but charges $52 to allow hopping. It does not make economic sense for Disney to allow this.

If you actually have multiple tickets (more than one physical ticket per person) as opposed to multiple day tickets, you can use these tickets for multiple entries. But it makes absolutely no economic sense as a separate ticket costs a lot more than adding hopping to a ticket.
