    Extra Magic Hours-only one park per day or do they do extra hrs at one park in AM, different one in PM? Trying to decide whether or not to get park hopper. Any advice would be appreciated.

    Hi Vicki,

    Typically you will find Extra Magic Hours at one park per day.  Perhaps the Magic Kingdom will have morning Extra Magic Hours on a Thursday.  Then Disney's Hollywood Studios will have evening Extra Magic Hours on a Monday.  Epcot may have morning Extra Magic Hours on the Friday in between.  Occasionally you may find a day with early Extra Magic Hours in one park and then evening Extra Magic Hours in a different park, but that is relatively rare.

    Deciding on the park hopper option for your theme park tickets is a tough decision.  If this is your first trip to Walt Disney World, I believe the park hopper option is probably not necessary.  You can save money by simply purchasing the Magic Your Way theme park tickets that afford guests entry to one theme park per day.  There is so much to discover in each of the four main theme parks that you really don't need to hop from park to park to fill your days.  More experienced guests would probably enjoy the park hopper option as you may choose to do your favorite attractions in one park and then hop to another park later in the day.  Or perhaps you want to enjoy Extra Magic Hours in one park and then dine in another that evening.  That would require the park hopper option. 

    How many times have you been to Walt Disney World, Vicki?  If you've been to the most magical place on earth a number of times, I'd advise you to invest in the park hopper option. 

    Let us know if you have any additional questions.
