    My hub and I will be bringing our two boys (4yr and 1yr) to Disney in June with park hopper passes. Which parks are worth spending more time at than others for this age group?? May have to split a day with two parks. Staying at Contemp Resort.

    Hi, Christina, from your northerly neighbor in Wisconsin! Park hopping rocks, especially because it gives you more flexibility with your schedule.

    When my boys were 4 and 1, we doubled up on days at Magic Kingdom and Epcot. You can adjust your days at Animal Kingdom and Hollywood Studios to be half days if need be, especially if the 4 year old isn't 40" yet or into thrill rides. I'd recommend doing Animal Kingdom and Hollywood Studios separate mornings. If you have a productive morning and saw the majority of what you wanted to see, take a midday break and then park hop over to Epcot or Magic Kingdom in the evening. This will be a cinch with you staying on the monorail line at the Contemporary.

    If you crave more Animal Kingdom or Hollywood Studios, you have the option with your park hopper to return there another evening or morning.
