    We are doing a family trip for 16 nights in Feb 2020. With that many days do I need to upgrade to a park hopper or not.

    Hi Lisa! Your Walt Disney World Resort vacation sounds practically perfect in every way!!! 16 nights!! Oh my goodness!!!

    While adding the Park Hopper option to your Theme Park Tickets isn't a necessity, I would highly encourage you to consider it.

    In particular, because you will be at Walt Disney World Resort for an extended period of time, you might find that you gravitate toward one theme park more than others.

    We typically start the day at one theme park and then return to our Resort hotel for pool time or rest. We then make our way to a different theme park for dinner and/or to enjoy more attractions or fireworks and other entertainment. Thanks to the delicious dining offerings at Walt Disney World Resort, my kiddos have become budding foodies. We specifically enjoy the many amazing restaurants in the World Showcase at Epcot so you will find us there on many evenings after we have enjoyed a fun filled day in another theme park. 

    You might also decide to experience four parks in one day! My husband and I did this several years ago and it was so much fun! Magical memories!

    I am delighted that you are already planning your 2020 Walt Disney World Resort vacation! I cannot thank you enough for sharing your questions with the Disney Parks Moms Panel! Please let me know if you have any other questions as you plan your magical vacation!!!
