    Our family is coming to WDW Mar 24-31/12 for the first time. Our child are 9,8 and 4. We are undecided about the park hopper option. Do you think our vacation would be better with it?

    Hi Alecia! If you are undecided, then I suggest not purchasing the Park Hopper option. We almost always have the Park Hopper option on all of our family's trips to Walt Disney World, but we only actually use the feature on half of those trips! That's half of the trips, and not half of the days! That's because with younger children, it's sometimes easier to go from early morning to late afternoon / early evening and then to return to the room for the night instead of hopping to another park! You can leave a park and return to that same park later in the day without having the Park Hopper option. You just need it if you want to visit a different park on the same day. Also, keep in mind that the Park Hopper option can be added on to your tickets at any time during your trip. So you could wait until you are standing in front of a second theme park on the same day and then buy it! Just remember that it costs the same on the last day of your trip as it would on the first. I hope this helps! Write back with more questions!
