    Hello we are planning our 1st family trip to Dinsey June4-8 2012.We have a 9yr old and 10yr old. I was thinking about purchasing the 3day special with the 2 days free but I dont know if I should make the tickets hopper tickets. I was told to buy hopper?

    Hi April,

    First trips are extra magical in my opinion.  How exciting that yours is right around the corner!  If you are looking to save some money, I recommend skipping the Park Hopper Option on your first trip.  There is so much to see and experience in each of the four main theme parks, that I don't think it's necessary to spend the additional money for the "hopper" option.  You will still be able to leave and re-enter the same theme park as many times as you like in a give day to go back to your resort to rest, swim, have a meal, etc.   If you plan out a basic itinerary with which parks you intend to cover on each day of your trip, I think your better off saving your money for a character meal, souvenir or special experience.

    Have a wonderful trip!
