    I'm staying for five days and can't decide if we should get a park hopper. Do you recommend the park hopper pass?


    The park hopper pass is great if you are staying for five days or less because you can make sure to maximize your time at the parks. Some of the parks close earlier and others stay open later, so the park hopper can help you see more of the parks.

    For example, Animal Kingdom doesn't have a nightly fireworks show and they typically close earlier than the other parks. I like to visit Animal Kingdom early in the morning, when the animals are most active, and then visit Epcot at night, because they are open later.

    You can also partner parks with the Extra Magic Hours and visit a park with Extra Early Magic Hours in the Morning and a park with Extra Evening Magic Hours at night to really maximize your day!

    The park hopper also is great if you are planning to go back to your room to rest mid-day. You can visit a park in the morning, go back to your room to rest during the hot afternoon hours and then go back to the park at night. 

    I hope you have a magical visit!
