    We are coming to Orlando 6/17-6/24 staying off property. We have 5 and 9 yr old girls. I am trying to decide how many days to come to Disney - 3 or 4 and if park hopper is worth it for kids this age. recommendations? anywhere to see Tiana while there?

    Hi, Dana! If four days is within your budget, then four days is what I would do! This will be good and give you time to see each of the four theme parks.  I also highly recommend the Park Hopper option to optimize your time in the parks.  For example, on the day you visit Animal Kingdom (it closes earlier than the others), you can the hop to another park and maximize your park time.  This will be especially important since you are staying off-site and will not be eligible for the Extra Magic Hours that on-site Guests receive.  You will be able to find Tiana and Prince Naveen behind Ye Olde Christmas Shoppe in Liberty Square in the Magic Kingdom.  Happy planning and have a Magical vacation!
