    We will be coming to DW with our 2 year old and and 7 month old in September for 5 full days, and we have a 6th day, which is the day that we get there. Are the hopper passes worth getting, for the convenience? What rides will we all be able to go on?

    Hi Paul - In my opinion, it's worthwhile getting the park hopper option.  It gives you so much flexibility, because you can dine in one park and then visit another.  With young kids, you'll also have the opportunity to travel around visiting the attractions they like best.

    My first family visit to Walt Disney World was with a two year old and a 10-month old, so I was in your shoes.  There are still plenty of attractions your kids can go on.  You can bring your 7-month old on slow moving rides - just watch them first to make sure they feel appropriate.  Also, I recommend bring a front baby carrier just for rides, because then you'll have your hands free.

    As for your two-year old, there are lots of attractions that are appropriate, especially at the Fantasyland area of the Magic Kingdom.  The Disney Junior Live on Stage show will be lots of fun too.

    Have a great time!
