    Which kind of ticket do you recommend for a family (four adults one child) visit, a four day park hopper ticket or a regular four day park ticket?

    Dear Daniel,

    Thank you for reaching out to us here at the Disney Parks Moms Panel with your question about ticketing options!

    Whether or not to add the Park Hopper option to your tickets is a very personal choice for your family, and different families have different preferences. 

    With a four-day ticket, it really lends itself to one day at each of the four parks. You can really take your time to see each park one at a time and spend the whole day there. However, if you think that your family might want to spend extra time at a given park (for example, to watch the fireworks at the Magic Kingdom two nights in a row), then a Park Hopper ticket might be better. 

    Another thing to consider is that you can only get three early FastPass+ selections for ONE park. Even if you have the Park Hopper option on your tickets, the pre-selected three FastPass+ must all be at the same park. After you have used those original three, then you can select additional FastPass+ selections at the same or a different one of the four parks. 

    Hope that helps with your planning!
