    My husband and I are traveling to WDW with our son and his wife, a 5yr. old and a 2 year old this summer. Is it better to buy park Hopper tickets instead of Magic Your way...and WHY?

    Hi Lauri , what a great trip you have planned.  I will be more than happy to tell you why I never buy anything but the hopper pass.  Let's say it's day two of your vacation.  On day one you visited MK and on day two you are at DHS.  By mid-afternoon, the 5 year old begins to beg to ride Peter Pan's Flight again ... located in the MK, not DHS.  With a hopper pass this scenario is no problem, just hop on the Disney bus and head back over to MK.  If one park closes early and you are really not ready to go back to the resort, with the hopper pass you can go visit a park that is open later, or enjoy attractions at one park during the day and then go to another to view the fireworks that night.  Without adding the hopper option, these scenarios are not possible.  A Magic Your Way One Day pass means you stay at that one park all day and you can not visit another park without the hopper option.  I truly can't recommend it enough!  I hope you and your entire family have an incredible Disney vacation this summer, and thanks for coming to the Mom's Panel.
