    We just booked our vacation at the Hilton Park Soleil and we will be going just after Thanksgiving - sunday - wednesday, with an 8 year old D and a 5 year old S. Any recommendations for how we should plan our visit? Should i buy a 3 or 4 day pass? Thanks

    Hi Jessica,

    Thanks so much for writing!  How exciting that your Walt Disney World vacation is in the works!  As you can guess, if given a choice, I generally say "the more the better" when it comes to how many day to spend in the theme parks.  Especially with children your kids' ages, I think you'll find that they will be clamoring for more, and will find endless attractions that delight them.  The cost per day of Magic Your Way tickets decrease as the number of days increases, so if it is within your budget, I would recommend going for a four-day-ticket.  I would plan on one full day at Magic Kingdom and Epcot and then a half day at Hollywood Studios and Animal Kingdom (if you opt for Park Hoppers). I would then save your last day for a repeat visit to the park your family most enjoyed (which I'm guessing will be Magic Kingdom.)  If you don't opt for hoppers (which allows you to visit more than one theme park in a given day) I would allow for one day per park at each of the four theme parks.

    Happy planning!
