    My eight year old daughter, another couple, and I will be taking our first Disney World vacation the end of October 2013. Since the Parks have shorter hours during that time, does it give us enough time to use a hopper pass?

    My family has made good use of park hopper passes during September, Patricia.  To maximize your park time, you'll obviously want to arrive at the theme park at or prior to opening.  Once you've had your fill of attractions at any one park, you can head back to your resort for a midday break.  If you're more the go-go-go touring type, you can "hop" to a second park midday.  In my experience, we typically use our park hoppers to visit a second park for dinner and nighttime entertainment.  I will say, though, that this past September we visited three different parks in a single day.  I wouldn't attempt that without the use of a personal vehicle as it did require a bit of transportation time, but it is definitely doable.  I hope that helps!

Meet the Panelist: Darcie, Alabama

Given your inclination to plan a magical trip, I can already tell we have a lot in common. I'm Darcie, and my friends would be the first to tell you that Disney trip planning (especially dining!) is my love language. Of course, the vacations my family enjoys today look much different than they did when our kids were little, but while some of our favorite activities have evolved, Disney destinations still top our travel wish lists. Let's work together to plan a downright dreamy vacation for your family! Learn More About Darcie
