    Hello Ashley, thanks so much! Need your advise again since your kids&mine are same age: Did you add park hoppers for your kids? We'll stay at BLT & wonder if we should just focus on MK for 2 days or try to do MK & Epcot on both days. Thank yo

    So happy to see you again, Jessica!

    For us, Park Hopping is a must!  While we try to plan our park days ahead of time, we know with two little ones in tow, our plans won't always pan out.  On our last trip, we scheduled one day at Disney's Animal Kingdom Theme Park.  As soon as we were done with a couple of attractions, my four year-old demanded we return for Epcot to ride Spaceship Earth!  It's all she could talk about, so we headed on over to Epcot and spent the rest of our day there.  It's also nice to know we can make dining reservations in any theme park and not have to worry about being "locked in" to a particular park each day.

    The good thing about Park Hoppers is you don't need to add them to your tickets now.  You can start out with your Base Tickets and add the Park Hopper Option at any time.  It's a one-time fee and is the same price, regardless of your ticket length.  So, if you decide on day two that you really want to leave Magic Kingdom Park and hit up Epcot instead, just head to a ticket window or Guest Relations Office and upgrade your tickets.  Easy peasy!

    Happy hopping!
