    MYW Base Ticket Usage

    ok Experts, a little help please...

    my parents bought 5 day and 4 night Magic Your Way Base Tickets. then they dropped this in my lap with a list of stuff they want to do. I'm having a bit of a problem with scheduling, since they have the Base Tickets and not the Park Hopper passes.

    the only way I can see out of the conundrum is this:

    the day they get down there (my wife and I will already be down there), we're going to Epcot to eat dinner at the Coral Reef (which will use one day of their tickets). the next day we will be returning to Epcot for a full day (one more day).
    now, here's the root of my question:

    the next day after that, we will be going to AK for the day. being as there is no table service in the AK, I was wondering if we could use up one of their day and "park hop" (so to speak) to Epcot to eat dinner. this, to my estimation, should be possible, even though it would cost two day's worth of tickets.

    they won't be needing the extra day on their tickets, as they will be leaving early in the morning on the 5th day.

    so, to recap/simplify:

    Day 1: Epcot evening
    Day 2: Epcot all day
    Day 3: Animal Kingdom for the day, Epcot for dinner
    Day 4: MK all day
    Day 5: departure

    will this work?

    thanks!

    Wouldn't they consider that park hopping? Aren't base tickets one park/one day? I think you can go in and out of the same park on the same day but not go to another park. Maybe see how much it would be to upgrade to the park hopper. If its only a few days, it probably won't be that bad and then you can go and eat wherever you want.

    Unfortunately, they do not allow you to do what you are proposing, even when you're willing to use 2 days worth of tickets on the same day.

    May I suggest dining at Downtown Disney, Animal Kingdom Lodge, or even the Rainforest Cafe at AK for dinner that evening instead? If you've never tried Boma, it would be a great opportunity.

    well, it's not for me, it's for my parents. but yes, I've tried Boma, and I agree that it is great, but my folks wouldn't like it.

    I have some other Resort restaurants in mind, though.

    thanks for the help

    Technically, that would work, but the computer would not let you use two days in one day. Since its the year of a million dreams maybe yours could be to use two days in one. Doesn't hurt to ask a CM at Guest Relations.

    You can only use 1 day at a time. you can add park hopper to their tickets at any guest relations.

    I'd just make it simpler and eat in DTD... they have many wonderful restaurants to choose from there and it would safe a lot of money you would be wasting otherwise

    I will be at WDW every two weeks then... I can't wait!

    Technically, it WON'T work. You'll be denied entry to the second park you attempt that day. The Great Disney Computer knows all.
