    Hi Doug, 12/27-12/31 for the 1st time with ages 2girl & 3boy +us. only have 3 full days for parks, should I get a hopper to do at least 2 park in 1 day then 1 day at hs and 1 day at mk. my kids may need to nap, hopefully in stroller. suggestions?


    I would say that on a first trip, and with younger children, I would choose not to get the Park Hopper. I would instead pick one park to skip all together, leaving 1 day each to focus on other parks. There is so much to do in each park, why rush any of them? Spend a day in a park. See what you can. Don’t waste a lot of time moving from one park to another simply to check another park off your ‘list’.

    Also, you are there at a VERY busy time of the year. It is all the more important to stick with one park and not move around too much.

    If it were me, I would go as follows;

    • December 28 – Magic Kingdom
    • December 29 – Hollywood Studios
    • December 30 – Epcot or Animal Kingdom (your choice)

    Write back if I can help more!

    Have a magical vacation!
