    What is a hopper pass? Planning our first WDW vacation and looking for any possible deals and best times of the year to go? I have found the pannel to be very helpful! thanks.

    Hi Kristina!
    How exciting to be planning your first trip to the "happiest place on Earth!"
    A "hopper" pass is an upgrade option to a base ticket that allows you to go back and forth between the four theme parks (hopping) while only using one day's admission.
    Current deals may be found at and other sites such as My personal favorites with regard to best times of year to come to Walt Disney World are October (the later the better) and any time between Thanksgiving and Christmas!
    I hope this helps a bit and if other questions pop up, please come on back and ask away. It is my pleasure to help.
    I wish you a Magical first trip!! :)
