    Hello! Just booked for April 2014, 5 day tickets. I booked it with the park hopper option, but now debating the park hopper option vs. the waterpark, fun, and more. Which option is better especially for a 1st time visit? Thinking maximize activities.

    Hello Kim!

    Thanks for stopping by the Disney Parks Moms Panel with your question!  It is our pleasure to help guests make planning even more magical.  Congratulations on planning your very first visit to Walt Disney World!
    I know the options can seem overwhelming, so let me try to help with your question.  In my opinion, because this is your very first visit, I would recommend sticking with the Park Hopper option only.  With 4 Major Parks to tour plus your resort, you will have plenty to see and do in those 5 days.  As a matter of fact, you will probably want to go back to each park more than once.  You may want to squeeze the Minor Parks in, but that will really depend on the pace in which you want to tour.  Take a look at all of your ticket options!

    Whatever you decide, I wish you a truly magical vacation, Kim!
