    Hi, Luv your ideas. I read an ans to a ? and you suggested hopping every day but one for 7 days. My ? is why do you like hopping so much? What's the advantage? Have PH 9/30-10/9 but not hopping much on my schedule. Thanks again for all your time and ideas.


    Actually, no, I am not very crazy about hopping. I think that the fewer times that you do it, the better. Any time on a bus/boat/monorail is a time not in a park, or pool side at your resort.

    Often when I make itinerary suggestions that include a lot of hopping it is because of one of two reasons;

    1. The person asking for help has a lot of dining reservations at different parks in a single day. That way they just have to go around from park to park to get it all done.
    2. The person asking for help has kids that need to take naps. If you have to go back to your hotel for naps anyway, the ability to get to a different park in the afternoon will let them take advantage of more extra magic hours.
    Don't sweat it that you are not park hopping. You should only do it based on schedule need, or as a release valve if you are getting bored with the park you are in.

    I hope that this helps? Please let me know whatever else I can help with!

    Have a magical vacation!
