    I am coming in March with my husband and 4 year old daughter, will there be enough to do at the animal kingdom to spend the whole day or should we purchase a park hopper? We have 4 full days to spend at the parks

    Hi Kim,

    I love Animal Kingdom and it truly is a special place at the Walt Disney World Resorts.  You could easily spend the entire day there.  You will experience animals in a whole new way.

    However, for the benefit of the animals, the park usually closes at 5:00 pm.  The question becomes what to do with those extra hours?  You could go back to your resort and take advantage of the activities there or you could go back to another park.

    If you were planning on touring all four parks, I would then get the Park Hopper option added to my ticket to see things I missed or ride a favorite.  If you were not going to all of the parks on this trip, then I would stick to the basic ticket and use this free evening to regenerate.

    Have fun!
