Can you do this with park tickets?

    Hi All,

    We are visiting in Nov. We always buy hopper passes, but never seem to hop (children are too small to drag all over). There is one day that I think we may hop. Can I buy a 7 day pass (we are only going to the parks for 6 days), and the day we hop, can we use the pass and have one day taken off (use the pass twice in one day)? Does it work this way? It is much cheaper than buying the hopper, but I am not sure it works this way. I hope this makes sense.

    Thanks all!!!

    Thanks so much. I figured that would have been too easy! Everyone would probably do it.

    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 an adult ticket, but charges $50 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.

    Thanks so much for your expertise. I figured as much. As far as the "hint on the ticket", We usually do the Land and Sea, just the cruise, or buy a package, so I never had a paper ticket to read. My Aunt is a cast member too, at the Poly!
