    We only have one or two days to spend at WDW. Would you recommend purchasing a park hopper or just the base ticket?

    Hi Crysti,

    Welcome to the Moms Panel!  This is a great question, and I would have to say that it depends on 1) the ages of the people in your party and 2) your Walt Disney World experience.

    I think that it is safe to say that you could easily spend an entire day at any of the Walt Disney World theme parks.  This is especially true if you have young children because they often require a bit of a slower pace and extra breaks. 

    The other consideration is experience.  If you have never been to Disney before, you will most likely be a bit overwhelmed and appreciate staying in one park per day to fully experience all they have to offer. 

    If you have been to WDW before and are familiar with the attractions and transportation system, park hopping is a great way to pack in a lot of fun and favorites into a couple days.  This is even easier with older children as you don't have the burden of the strollers and extra bags.

    I hope this information makes your decision a little easier!
