    We are flying into orlando on a Saturday, departing Friday evening. How many days of a park hopper pass do we need to visit magic kingdom daily>

    Hello Crystal –

    We are so excited to assist you with planning for your trip to the Walt Disney World Resort! Pretty soon, you will enjoy the sights and yummy smells of Main Street USA while visiting Magic Kingdom with your family. How thrilling! It is always difficult to determine how many days of theme park tickets to purchase and whether or not to buy the park hopper option as well.

    At a minimum, you will need 6 days of Theme Park Tickets in order to maximize your stay at the Walt Disney World Resort.  With 1-Day Tickets, your family will be able to visit 1 theme park per day and save a little money at the same time. This is a great option for younger family members who may not want to spend all day in a park. Remember that your Resort Hotel will have a fabulous pool and play area as well.

    Park Hoppers will give your family the most flexibility as you can visit more than one park per day. I usually do not purchase a park ticket for the last day of my vacation since traveling takes up most of the day. If we have free time, we enjoy the amenities at our Resort Hotel or visit Disney Springs for last minute shopping.

    Crystal, I hope this helps with your planning, but if you need additional help, please come back to see us at the Disney Parks Moms Panel!
