So if we say went to Typhoon Lagoon in the day and wanted to go to Magic Kingdom in the evening…is that hopping? I would purchase the water park option, with no hopper. Is it possible to do this? Or would that be considered hopping since it is two parks in 1 day?
No, that isn’t hopping. When they talk about “parks” they are referring to only the 4 main parks. Keep in mind that you’re talking about the “waterparks and more” option, which is good for a certain number of admissions to the two waterparks and Disney Quest and is independent of the main parks admission.
So, no, you are not hopping if you use one day’s park admission to the MK and then go to Blizzard Beach in the afternoon and then return to the MK at night.
If however, you wish to go to Epcot and the MK on the same day, that is considered hopping.
