    We will be at Disney for 3 days in June 2023, what is the best way to do the tickets. We will want to do Magic, EPCOT, Animal Kingdom and/or Hollywood Studios. Do I need the Genie? Is it cheaper with the hopper or just go by the day? Ages are 13, 11, 6

    Hi Dawn!  Welcome to planDisney!

    Here at planDisney we're ready to help you make these "tough" decisions about your Walt Disney World Resort vacation, fully knowing that whether you choose to follow our advice or not, you're still going to have an absolutely magical vacation! There's never a wrong way to do Disney!

    If you're hoping to experience the fantasy of Magic Kingdom, the new neighborhoods of EPCOT, the natural wonders of Disney's Animal Kingdom, and the immersive lands of Disney's Hollywood Studios all in three days I would definitely suggest adding the Park Hopper Option onto your family's Theme Park Tickets! With this option, you'll be able to make Theme Park Reservations for three of your "must-do" Theme Parks, and still have the chance to visit that fourth Park!  With the Park Hopper Option you and your family will be able to be a little bit more flexible with your vacation plans, visiting one Park in the morning, another in the evening, and maybe even another just for fireworks like Disney Enchantment at night! 

    If you choose to add Disney Genie+ Service to your family's plans you'll hopefully be able to experience every ride and attraction that you're looking forward to, even in the busy three days you'll have in the Parks.  Instead of standing in line, Genie+ will help you maximize your time in the Parks allowing you to explore shops, snacks, and shows while waiting for your return time. Genie+ gives you access to the Lightning Lane of more than 40 rides and attractions throughout all four Theme Parks, so if you're looking to pack tons of fun in during your trip, this might be the way to go! 

    If you're not looking to purchase Genie+ but still hoping to essentially "skip" the lines on a few of Walt Disney World Resort's MOST popular attractions, you can purchase Individual Lightning Lanes.  Rides like Star Wars: Rise of the Resistance and Avatar Flight of Passage can be purchased even without Genie+, allowing you to customize your Walt Disney World Theme Park experience. 

    As your vacation comes closer please feel free to stop by again with any other Disney planning questions!

Meet the Panelist: Ashley, Massachusetts

Hi All, I'm Ashley! From the very beginning Walt Disney World Resort has always been a part of my life. As a child I excitedly helped to plan family trips, as a young adult I planned our "happily ever after" right on Disney property, and now I'm lucky enough to plan magical vacations for my three incredible children. When we're not taking in the enchanting experiences of the parks, we're home in Massachusetts, probably planning our next trip! Learn More About Ashley
