    5 day vacation with a 4 yo girl and my husband. how should i do tickets for theme parks. we r staying at animal kingdom. hopper? one park at a time per day? fast pass? wrist band? i would like everything paid for ahead of time. simplify.

    Hi Kimberly! Congratulations on your upcoming trip to Walt Disney World. You're going to love Animal Kingdom Lodge both Kidani Village and Jambo House are majestic you'll be left in awe!

    I know you have exciting adventures planned for your little princess. For that reason, I don't think you'll need the Park Hopper because with 5 days you can thoroughly enjoy each theme park by taking your time...there's so much to experience.

    As a Mom with little ones, I know how important it into take a break during the day to recharge and refresh. So with a one park a day ticket you can take a midday snack or nap break and then come back to the park as many times as you want that day...we love this option. Another bonus is spreading out your FastPass+ selections throughout the day.

    It all starts by creating a My Disney Experienceaccount - the hub for planning all the exciting details of your vacation. Here you can book regular and special dining experiences, plus reserve times for your must do favorite attractions. Everything is connected with the all new MagicBands. Worn like a watch on your wrist, this nifty "accessory" acts as your room key, theme park ticket, access to FastPass+ selections,PhotoPass card and payment account all in one - forget the hefty purse! In your My Disney Experience account you will be able to customize your MagicBands. Depending on your arrival date they will be mailed to you.

    I hope your vacation is magical and memorable!
