    Hello Moms. Do you see an advantage of park hopper when coming during a busy time? We will be there 3/24/12 to 3/29/12. All of the parks stay open late & all of the parades happen on a daily basis.

    Hello Joni!

    You ask a really GREAT question!  I also know this question can have several different answers based on the person you ask.  As you are thinking about the Disney Park Hopper Option, here are two things to consider:

    1.  Based on the size and ages of your group, the time it takes you to "hop" between the Disney Parks could be AT LEAST an hour!  If it's really busy, then it could take you up to 90 minutes.

    2.  If it is really busy in the Disney Park you are visiting, then it is probably busy in the other Disney Parks as well.

    With this in mind...

    *  If you are traveling with small children, then I would definitely NOT recommend the Disney Park Hopper Option.  From packing up strollers to catching busses...the time it takes is just not worth it.

    *  If you are traveling with adults and would like to eat an early dinner in one Disney Park and then watch the fireworks in another Disney Park, then the Park Hopper Option could work.  Please understand it is SO much easier to "hop" Disney Parks with adults.  

    Because you really can't gage the crowds in all of the Disney Parks at one time, the general rule for my family is to stick to one Disney Park per day.  

    I hope this helps in your planning!  If you have other questions, please let me know!

    Have a MAGICAL day!
