    How important is the park hopper versus regular Disney tickets? In particular for a 4 year old. Meaning is a 4 year old able to navigate more than one park in a day?

    Hello Sara,

    Deciding between the base Magic Your Way ticket and adding on the Park Hopper option, is truly something only you can answer. When my children were of the toddler/preschool age, my husband and I chose not to add on the Park Hopper option. Our perfect Walt Disney World itinerary was visiting one park a day, a little pool time or nap time and returning to the same park to finish off the day.  Our children, did better maintaining a similar schedule like we kept at home, otherwise we ended up with little grumpy monsters, me pulling my hair out and my husband with a permanent scowl. My family is not a go-go-go until you drop family, while others are and our Practically Perfect Magical day at Walt Disney World did not include multiple parks, while for others it may. Now my children are older and we are able to enjoy the benefits of the Park Hopper option, but during their younger ages it would not have worked for us. Ultimately, you know what is right for your family and this is YOUR Magical Walt Disney World vacation.

    If I can be of any further pixie dusted assistance feel free to ask and may your upcoming stay at Walt Disney World be filled with many magical and memorable moments.
