Park Hopper Plus Tickets

[Disney Vacation Planner]

At A Glance  

From the 23rd of May 1999 Disney altered the ticketing options for the Walt Disney World resort. dropping the All In One Hopper passes in favour of the new Park Hopper Plus passes.

The Park Hopper Plus passes are sold in the same day-denominations as the All in One passes, and offer the same options for hopping between the four major theme parks, however they have severe limitations on access into the minor parks (the water parks, Pleasure Island and the Wide World of Sports).

For example, the 7-day Park Hopper plus allows 7 days of unrestricted access to any of the major four theme parks, but only has 4 (four) "plus" admissions. These plus admissions are used to access the minor parks, with one plus being used for each minor park admission on a given day.

This means that if you visit a major park during the morning and the go to one of the water parks in the afternoon you'll have used a day's major park admission and one of the minor park "plus" admissions. If you then go to Pleasure Island in the evening you'll use a second of the "plus" admissions in the same day leaving only two remaining on the ticket.

Note that as with the previous park hoppers and the All in One hoppers, unused admission to the major parks never expires. Unlike the earlier tickets though, unused "plus" admission on the newer tickets also never expires, and can be used on subsequent visits, so whilst on the whole the ticket offers less value than the earlier All in One tickets, (which many people thought were less value than the original 7-day hoppers) there are some allbeit small benefits with the new admission media.

The other Park Hopper Plus tickets available are the 6 day, and 5 day Park Hopper Plus tickets, which have 3 and 2 "plus" options respectively.

The main disadvantage of the new park hopper plus tickets, is that if you plan to visit a minor park on several occasions during a visit, you will end up paying to gain entry after a few days (after 4 days with a 7-day Park Hopper Plus), whereas with the older All in One tickets you could gain access to the minor parks for as many days as were on the ticket (ie 7 days for a 7-day All in One).

The advantage however, is that the 'plus' options (entry to a minor park) can be used without affecting the major park options.

For example with the 7-day All in One pass, if you visited a minor park on one day, and didn't visit a major park, you'd have one day less on the ticket, and one day less in the major parks. With the newer Park Hopper Plus hosever, you can visit the minor park on a 'plus' visit, without affecting the number of days access to the major parks.

So if you are a big fan of the minor parks, the new ticket is more restrictive than the older All in One Hoppers, whereas if you like to spend one day in each park, it allows more freedom in that you can get more days use out of the same ticket.
