    Hi! I'm a mom of 4 kids ages 12,11,7,&5. We will be driving from Illinios so the first day we will not be going to the parks. So that will only give us 4 days left to play. I was wondering if the Park Hopper will really be worth the extra $.

    Hi Kimberly!  Last September we visited WDW and spent five days in the parks without using park hoppers.  I honestly don't feel like our experience was compromised in the least by that decision.  In fact, if you only have four days to play you may find that the time it takes to travel from one park to another will only detract from your vacation.  I think the park hopper option is a convenient one, but not a necessary one.  If purchasing the park hopping option stretches your budget, I say go without it and rest assured that you will have a magical time nonetheless! :)

Meet the Panelist: Darcie, Alabama

Given your inclination to plan a magical trip, I can already tell we have a lot in common. I'm Darcie, and my friends would be the first to tell you that Disney trip planning (especially dining!) is my love language. Of course, the vacations my family enjoys today look much different than they did when our kids were little, but while some of our favorite activities have evolved, Disney destinations still top our travel wish lists. Let's work together to plan a downright dreamy vacation for your family! Learn More About Darcie
