    Opinions please. Going to WDW Feb/10. Taking my DD 7 yr & parents in their 70's (1 with limited mobility). Debating base ticket vs hopper. Will have DDP (not deluxe). Staying at CSR. Thoughts PLEASE.

    Hey Heather!  Great question.  Okay first I definitely always recommend the hopper option and here is why.  Let's just say you are on your second day at MK and your DD days "hey I want to go see the Beauty and the Beast show at DHS."  With the hopper pass that is not a problem at all!  You can go to one, two, three even four parks in one day if the need arrives.  Can you tell I'm a fan of hopper passes?
    Yes on the DDP also, it is the best and I have actually figured up that we save money every year on the dining plan option.  A great advantage to this plan is your meals are all paid for before you even arrive on your vacation.  So therefore when you are planning how much extra money to take, you don't have to figure up the cost of food.  And finally the CSR is a beautiful resort.  I stayed there last December right as the rooms were beginning to be renovated and they are spectacular. 
    I hope these thoughts help you and that you have the most magical WDW vacation next February.  Thanks for coming to the Mom's Panel.
