||NOTE: With the advent of
the Park Hopper Plus passes, Disney have phased out the earlier
hopper passes and All in One passes. Existing passes are of
course still valid for access to all of the Walt Disney World
parks, but it is no longer possible to buy the hopper passes
The 4-Day and 5-Day Hopper Pass
Next comes the hopper passes. Available in a basic 4-day format
the hopper pass allows 4-days unrestricted access to the four
major theme parks, and allows you to swap between different parks
on the same day, so for example you could go into the Magic Kingdom
during the morning, nip to Epcot for lunch, and then go on to
the Disney MGM Studios for the afternoon in the same day.
As with the 4-day Value pass the 4-day Hopper does not provide
access to the minor theme parks such as Pleasure Island, or the
three Disney water parks, which require additional tickets.
A variation on the hopper pass, the 5-day World Hopper pass allows
5-days unrestricted access to the four major parks, and allows
you to hop between parks, much as the 4-day hopper pass allows.
Additionally, the 5-day world hopper allows for up to 7 days unrestricted
access to the minor parks, from the time the pass is first used.
This means that you can spend the first seven days of your holiday
visiting the minor parks such as the Disney water parks, and still
have 5 days access to the major four parks at the end of the holiday,
giving a total of 12 days park access, whereas if you start by
visiting the major parks, and use 5 days in the major parks, you'll
then only have 2-days access to the minor parks remaining on the
The 4-day hopper and 5-day world hopper passes are valid for
the lifetime of the purchaser, so if you don't use all of your
major park access by the end of your holiday, the remaining days
will still be valid for use another year.
Disney's original hopper passes, and world hopper passes are
no longer available for purchase, although existing passes are
of course still valid for access to the theme parks.
