    Hi.Our 1st trip to WDW is 9/8 -9/14. I'm planning 2 purchase 5 day passes for 3 adults, 4 kids (3-12).Can we do without park hopper and save the $? Also what parks would you recommend for what days?We want to have a "down" day midweek & r sta

    Hello Tracy!

    WOO HOO!!!!  It's your very first trip to Walt Disney World!!!  Your family is going to have the most MAGICAL time!

    The answer to your question is YES!  You can certainly enjoy all of the Disney Theme Parks without purchasing the Park Hopper Option.  I have five kids under the age of 12.  We never purchase the Park Hopper Options because of the time it takes and stress it causes to "hop" from one Disney Theme Park to another.  My recommendation is to plan on staying at one Disney Theme Park each day.  That way you can focus on everything each park has to offer (attractions, shows, dining options) instead of wasting precious time traveling to another Disney Theme Park.

    If you need anything else, please let me know!

    Have a MAGICAL day!
