    My family and I have a Disney trip planned for this May for 6 days with park hopper passes. My question is, do we really need park hopper passes because if wedont then we can add another day to our vacation....and we have gone the last two years...thanks

    Hi Taryn,

    In my opinion, the park hopper option on your theme park passes is not necessary.  There is plenty to do in each of Disney's four main theme parks (Epcot, Disney's Animal Kingdom, Magic Kingdom, and Disney's Hollywood Studios) to fill an entire day, or more.  Getting the Magic Your Way theme park tickets, which offer admission to one park per day without hopping is a great way to enjoy the parks and save money.  If I were you, I would forgo the park hopper option in favor of a longer vacation.

    Let us know, Taryn, if you need suggestions for how to plan your days within each park.  We'd be delighted to assist you.

    Best wishes,
