    Should I get the park hopper ticket or is it better to get tickets for one park at a time? Staying for 4 days

    Hi Elizabeth,

    I'm so glad you stopped by to ask me a question! Park hopping is a great perk, but some guests prefer not to use it. I have gone before with and without park hoppers. The real deciding factors, in my opinion, are budget and how you plan to spend your days.

    The park hopper option offers the freedom to move among parks throughout the day. If you think you might only one to do a half day at any of the parks, this perk will come in handy. In order to save money, you could go to each of the parks for a single day. However, if you decide that you didn't get to all of what you wanted to at one of the theme parks and want to do a little more at that one on another day and then finish up your day at another park, you will want the park hopper option. I wasn't sure if you plan on going to all four theme parks or if your travel days are included in the four days mentioned. With that in mind, I would recommend having the park hopper option for the flexibility, especially with kids. You never know when the kids are going to want to see something again. I also find it handy in case the kids need a change of scenery mid-day to avoid meltdowns and such.   

    Again, if you choose not to park hop for budget or other reasons, it is still possible to see and do what you hope to with a little more careful planning. Feel free to stop back by with more questions as your planning continues.
