    Joining Dad who is going to a meeting. We arrive in 2 weeks for 6 days. We will have two 1/2 days, 2 full days and 2 days when Dad is in a conference from 2p-6p. First time to WDW with 5 & 7 yr old boys. On a strict budget, should we get a Hopper p

    Hi Vanessa!

    This is a great question!  Given your time constraints and the fact that it is your first visit to Walt Disney World, I recommend not getting the Park Hopper option since you mention being on a budget. The parks are all very large parks and you can easily spend a full day, if not multiple days, in of them. By the way, for other money saving tips and ideas be sure to visit the independent website MouseSavers.com. It is a great site and one of the first places I go when planning my own Disney vacation.

    I hope this helps. Please write back with more questions.
