    Hello! My mom and I plan to take my twin 3yr olds to WDW MK for 5days and 4nights in mid May. Any suggestions on purchasing the park passess; i.e. 5 day pass with Hoppers or 2 day pass w/ Hoppers? Also, what's the best park for 3yr old first timmers?

    Hi there, Stacy! That vacation sounds marvelous! For children as young as yours, I'd definitely focus my sights on the Magic Kingdom first and foremost. It's likely that you'll spend a couple of days there; with all of the rides, attractions, characters, and spectacular entertainment, you're sure to want to revisit it during your time at the Walt Disney World Resort. The great thing about Park tickets is that you can upgrade at any time. Start with the two-day Magic Your Way base ticket, and see how the time in the Park/s shakes out. You might find that your children "fizzle out" midday and need a rejuvenating nap or swim in the pool. Or, your children might blaze through the Magic Kingdom in two days and clamor for more Park time. That's when you review the attractions in the other Parks and, knowing your children, determine how many days you'll spend at each. That will help you determine how many more days to add. I would not suggest the Hopper option until you gauge how well your little ones will handle the incredible amount of action they'll experience at the Resort. The ease of upgrading - you can take care of that at any Guest Relations desk and at many of the Resorts. Just ask your concierge. If I can be of any more help, please feel free to drop me a line and you plan this amazing vacation. See you later, celebrator, -Deborah B.
