I'm still crunching the numbers, so this question might be a bit premature, but I'm hoping some Liners can help anyway. We really only plan to hop on one day of our trip. As a result, it seems as though it may be cheaper (through UT and/or Disney directly) to purchase a base ticket with an extra day, rather than a park hopper ticket for the duration of our stay. My question is, if I do that, can I actually use the extra day remaining on my base ticket when I show up at the second park on the one day I want to hop?
Background: we plan to spend time at both AK and EP on the last day of our trip. We'll be at AK in the am for EMH and Tusker House "brunch," then we want to spend the afternoon and evening at EP.
