    Hi moms! One more question, we leave in 47 days! Trying to decide if adding park hopper would be worth the extra cost? we have three small children under 6 so we have never done it before but this year, sadly, will be a shorter trip. thanks for the advice!

    Hi there Jennifer!

    If you are going to be taking a shorter trip, The Park Hopper option can be good if you are planning to do more than one park a day and you think your kids can handle that much action. I know in years past, I had the kids from morning till midnight and we would do various parks in a day. Most of the time the kids would be out by the time we left but they had a ball all day.

    If you only have a few days, are not very concerned with hitting every ride in each park, and want to experience every park; the Park Hopper will definitely be a great option. You could go to Animal Kingdom early in the morning and then leave early in the afternoon to get the kids some rest. Then you could go to Magic Kingdom in the evening to watch the fireworks and parades.

    If you have four or more days and have plenty of time to go to each park daily, then the Park Hopper doesn't really need to be purchased. You would just go to one park per day. Many people do this and still have a great time!

    Thank you so much for asking the Moms Panel! I hope you have a very Magical Day!
