    Hi I am heading to disney in oct 10 with my husband and 5 and 3 year old. Everyone but myself is a 1st time visitor. I am wondering whether or not to get the hopper on our passes. Can you do everything in one day at each park.?

    Hi Amy!  Although it is more expensive to add the park hopper option to your park tickets it is something I always recommend.

    Depending on what you wish to accomplish and experience in each park it can take up to two days to see it all.  I prefer a leisure visit and not one where we are racing from one attraction to the next.  There is so much to see and do beyond the attractions that many families will miss these experiences because they are rushing around.

    I also like the park hopper option because often we will visit one park for the morning and early afternoon and then return to the resort for swimming and rest.  It then gives us the option to head to another park for a nice dinner and perhaps the fireworks shows such as Wishes or Illuminations.

    It is not a necessity but a nice privilege that we use during our visits and if the budget can handle the extra expense it gives you so many more options to your visits to the parks.
