    Hey We are planning a trip to Magic & Animal Kingdom plus 2 water parks. would it best to purchase a hopper pass so we are able to go those 2 parks plus the 2 water parks?

    Dear Liz,

    Thank you so much for reaching out to us here at the Disney Parks Moms Panel with your great question about planning for your upcoming Walt Disney World Resort vacation!

    I'm not sure from your question how many days you might have to dedicate to your trip. If you only have one day for both Magic Kingdom and Disney's Animal Kingdom together, then you will want a theme park ticket with Park Hopper option for that day. If you plan to visit Magic Kingdom on one day and then Disney's Animal Kingdom on a separate day, then you won't need to purchase the Park Hopper option. 

    If you want to visit both water parks, then you will want to upgrade to the Park Hopper Plus option. Purchasing a 2-day Park Hopper Plus ticket will also give you those two days at Magic Kingdom and Disney's Animal Kingdom, and will also give you two visits to the water parks (or other options if you desire).

    Hope that helps with your magical planning!
