    We are coming to Disney 8/19 - 8/23. We are travelling in a group of nine people = seven adults, two 5 year olds, one 7 year old, and one 12 year old. This is our first disney trip. We bought 5 day hopper passes, which order should we visit the parks?

    Hi there Sarada!

    If you're staying at a Disney resort, then I would definitely recommend taking advantage of the Extra Magic Hours offered during your vacation. Start by visiting the theme park that offers early morning entry, then take a midday break for a nap or swim, and then "hop" to the theme park that is staying open late for onsite hotel guests.

    Otherwise, I'd recommend you look at the unofficial website for recommendations on which theme parks tend to be more popular on certain days of the week and plan according to projected crowd patterns for your August travel dates.

    Wishing you a pixie-dusted trip! Feel free to send more questions my way!
