Question in regards to park hopper and water parks option

We have included the park hopper and water park option as a part of our 5 day ticket purchase. On the day we go to the water park will a park day be deducted from one of the 5 park days?

Thanks in advance!

The 5 WPF&M entries are separate from the 5 theme park days.

NO. For every day you have a park ticket you will have an option ticket.
5 Day of Parks, 5 Days of Water Park Fun and More options. So you can do both on one day.

No. Park days are separate from water park entrances.

If you're really insane (like me ) you can even use two water park options in one day, plus a park.

Example: MK in the morning, water park in the afternoon, DisneyQuest in the evening.

That uses two "WP" passes in one day, however.

Wait... so water parks count as ADDITIONAL entries and not just another type of park hopping? EG If I buy a 3 day ticket with WP&H I could theoretically do a 6 day trip alternating a parks day and a water park day?

Yep. And actually, you could do up to a 14 day trip.

Correct, the WPF&M portion functions as if it were its own separate ticket. But, even if you have a hopper, you will use more than one WPF&M "entry" per day if you visit more than one WPF&M option in that day. For example, if you go to Blizzard Beach, Disney Quest, and Typhoon Lagoon all in the same day, you would be out of WPF&M entries at the end of that day (assuming a 3-day ticket). But, assuming you only do one per day, and don't use them on the same day as a "park" visit, you could stretch a 3-day ticket out to as many as 6 days of fun (longer if you take days off in between).

We had 4-day tickets & spread them over 7 days

I'm confused. We will be at WDW for 8 days so we bought a park hopper and water parks and more. I thought this means we can go to the theme parks as many times *** we want for the 8 days and go to the water parks and the "more" as many times as we want for 8 days

You have 8 days in theme parks MK, EC, DHS, AK (with hopper you can freely on any day move to a any other park). You also have 8 days that can be spent at TL, BB OR DQ. All of which have to be used within 14 days of the first use

If you goto MK for rope drop and jump ove to EC and end the day you have used 1 theme park day. Then the next day you hit AK and TL, you now have 6 theme park day and 7 water park days. Next you goto DHS and EC to eat and then afternoon at DQ. You have 5/6. Next you goto BB and DTD for the day 5/5 left.

This post from the ticket sticky explains how the two different components work:

Just to clarify...it is not 8 "DAYS" of WPF&M -- it is 8 "entries." These are entries to either of the water parks, Disney Quest, or either mini-golf before 4pm. As pointed out earlier, you may use multiple entries on the same day. Or you can use them on separate days and stretch out your vacation.

Enjoy your vacation!

Yea, thanks.. I knew there was something else I was planning on adding to my example, then someone started to talk to me and by the time I got back I'd forgotten what it was.
