    We are going to DW for the first time on Sun-Friday staying offsite and can't decide if we need the hopper ticket and if so how many days?How many days do you suggest to visit for each park? Is there a park you will not spend all day at?Thanks so much!

    Hi Lori!

    I like to suggest giving a full day to each park with an extra day at the Magic Kingdom, especially if this is your first visit.  We usually don't spend full days at Hollywood Studios or Animal Kingdom, so you could get away with park hopping on the same day to those.  Epcot and the Magic Kingdom definitely need a day to themselves.  You may even want an extra day at Epcot.   The World Showcase has so much to see, do and snack on, so spreading it out over a day and a half or two days will give you plenty of time to see what you want.  You don't want to feel rushed though, so take your time exploring each park.  Tickets can be upgraded, so if you start out with non-park hoppers and decide when you are there that you want to park hop, you can upgrade your tickets at any Guest Relations.

    Have a magical day!
