Top 10 Splurges at Walt Disney World

9 – Park Hopper & Water Parks Adding the Park Hopper to your tickets gives you flexibility when you're visiting Walt Disney World.  You can start the day at Animal Kingdom and then head over to the Magic Kingdom to see Wishes in the evening, or start at Hollywood Studios but book a dinner reservation in Epcot. Having the Park Hopper gives you control over your schedule. In addition to the Park Hopper the Park Hopper Plus Option ticket upgrade gives you access to Typhoon Lagoon and Blizzard Beach during your stay.  While $90 per ticket ($75 for the park hopper and $15 for the addition of the water parks) seems like a lot, it's perfect for longer stays since it allows you change your plans around depending on the weather, day, or if you'd like more time to ride your favorite attractions.
