    We will have a party of 4 adults and 2 kids. We wanted to get a 3 day pass, a split of 50-50 between Magical Kingdom and Epcot. Do we choose the park hopper even though we only wanted the specific 2 parks only? The other 2 adult just need one day passes.

    Hi Julia,

    You only need a basic Magic Your Way theme park ticket (which permits access to one park per day) if you would be content to spend one day in the Magic Kingdom, one day in Epcot, and then the third day in the Disney theme park of your choice (which could be the Magic Kingdom or Epcot again or Disney's Animal Kingdom or Disney's Hollywood Studios).  If, however, you wish to spend half of one day in Epcot and the second half of the same day in the Magic Kingdom, that would require a theme park ticket with the park hopper option.  If you purchase a three day pass, all three days would then have to have the park hopper option.  Otherwise, you'd have to purchase a two-day pass without the park hopper option and a one-day pass with the park hopper option.  Generally, that's not the most cost effective plan.  

    My guess is that a theme park pass without the park hopper option will suit your group just fine.  Spend one day in the Magic Kingdom, one day at Epcot, and then spend your third day in whichever of those two parks you'd like to visit again.  

    Have a wonderful time at Walt Disney World and don't hesitate to let us know if you need any additional advice.

    Best wishes,
