As a travel agent, I’m always looking for good deals for my clients. This is especially true for vacations to Walt Disney World in Florida. This destination is a magical trip for any family, but making these memories can sometimes be costly. I want to share some information about an often-overlooked ticket option at Disney World: The Park Hopper Plus (formerly known as the Water Park Fun & More option). This ticket can help give you a great Disney vacation at a lower cost!

If you have older kids who can go from opening to closing time, and enjoy water parks, this ticket option can save you some money on your trip. I think a package with this ticket type is especially perfect for families with tweens and teens.

Here’s how this ticket option works:

Let’s say you purchase a Disney vacation package that includes a 3-day Park Hopper Plus ticket for your whole family. You’ll receive the following:

Three days to visit any of Disney’s 4 Theme Parks (Magic Kingdom, Animal Kingdom, Hollywood Studios, and Epcot). And you can even visit more than one park in the same day (known as “hopping”). You could begin a day in Hollywood Studios, enjoy all the Star Wars attractions plus Rock’n’Roller Coaster and Tower of Terror, and then spend the evening at Magic Kingdom to hit more rides and watch the fireworks show at closing time, all by using just ONE day of your ticket.

In addition to your three days of Park Hopping, you’ll also get Three visits to Disney’s Water Parks (Blizzard Beach and Typhoon Lagoon), which are top-notch excitement as well. And a welcome break from the Florida heat in summer!

So with this 3-day Park Hopper Plus ticket, you can get SIX full days of fun, while saving some money too!
