    Is it too much to do Hollywood Studios and Epcot in the same day w/our 5 year old son? It looks like there will be more for him to do in Epcot than I thought. I had planned on a 1 day park hopper.

    In my opinion, it would be difficult to completely tour both Epcot and Disney's Hollywood Studios in the same day, particularly with a child who may need an afternoon nap or swim break. Another factor to consider is that many of the attractions at Disney's Hollywood Studios are show-based and run a only certain times during the day. If you want to see, for example, the Lights Motors Action show, the Indiana Jones show, and the Playhouse Disney show, you're going to do some creative scheduling.

    However, I think you're misunderstanding the cost structure of the Park Hopper option. The Park Hopper add-on costs one flat fee, regardless of the number of ticket days you have. Prices can change, but currently, the Park Hopper costs $50. This same $50 is applied whether you are adding the Hopper to a one-day ticket or a ten-day ticket. If you think you want to Hop at all, you should purchase the Hopper option early in your trip, so that you have the most possible flexibility in your vacation.

    Having a Park Hopper for the entire length of your trip may allow you more opportunities to work in attractions from all the parks.

    Enjoy your visit to Walt Disney World.
