    We are a family of 5; 3 children age 5,7,9. We plan on going to W.D.W. every year for 5 days no park hopper the week after Thanksgiving. Monday- Friday. Is it best to get a year pass or not?

    Hi Susan!

    It sounds like you have a wonderful vacation plan in mind. What a perfect way to really enjoy the holiday season!

    Under your circumstances, no, I don't believe that it would be of value to you to purchase annual passes rather than just the 5-day 1 park/day theme park admission tickets. For only one 5-day visit per year, it would be much more cost effective to buy the non-hopper tickets, even with the annual passholder discounts, in mind. If you decide to stay more days or to make an additional trip sometime during the year, it may then become a better option. 

    If you need any other assistance in planning your holiday vacation, Susan, please let us know. 

    Magical Wishes,
