    Is a Park Hopper pass essential for a 5 day pass?

    Hi again, Brooke!

    Yours is a difficult question that many travelers struggle to answer.  Park hopper tickets are awesome!  Having the flexibility to go between Disney's four major theme parks in the same day is wonderful, particularly if you want to enjoy morning Extra Magic Hours in one park and then close out the same day with Extra Magic Hours in another park.  However, especially for new visitors to Walt Disney World, park hoppers are not absolutely essential.  There is so much to see and do in every Disney theme park that you could easily fill a day by enjoying the attractions in just one park.  Therefore, it would be a waste to spend the extra money on park hoppers if you just don't need them.  If you are new to Walt Disney World, I think a basic Magic Your Way ticket which affords access to one park per day would be a great choice.
