    We have a family of 4 visiting for 2 days in June (children 7 and 13 years old) and are wondering if we should spend both days in Magic Kingdom or spend one day in Magic Kingdom and buy the Park Hopper pass for the second day to try to include Animal Kingd

    Hi John,

    It sounds like you won't need the park hopper option on your theme park tickets if you plan to visit the Magic Kingdom one day and Disney's Animal Kingdom the second day.  As long as you only visit one of the four major theme parks each day, a basic Magic Your Way theme park ticket is all you need.

    If you arrive at the Magic Kingdom a little before opening time on your first day, you should be able to visit the attractions you think your family will most enjoy in one day, especially since your children are at an age where they can move quickly through the parks.  Then you will be able to begin your visit to Disney's Animal Kingdom early the next morning, when the animals are most visible and active on the Kilimanjaro Safaris.  I bet your kids would enjoy some of this theme park's major thrill rides (like Expedition Everest) too.  These are best explored in the morning when lines are shortest. 

    So my vote would be for your family to buy two days worth of park tickets without the park hopper option.  This will be an affordable way for your family to have two stunning days of adventure at Walt Disney World this June.

    Best wishes for a truly magical experience!
