    I am planning our first visit to Disneyworld. Our daughters will be 3 & 8yrs old at the time. We are staying 3nights/4days & are on a bugdet. Which Disney value resort to do suggest? What are the best parks to visit w/ a toddler? Hopper passes or

    Kara, how exciting to be planning your first Disney vacation! Since you are there for three nights, I would recommend the Pop Century Resort. The theming is fantastic, and there is something fun around every corner. The resort has a fabulous food court, which serves up delicious freshly-made food at reasonable prices. The pools and playgrounds are perfect for some quiet, hotel time.

    The Magic Kingdom and Hollywood Studios should both be on your must do list. If your daughters enjoy animals, then be sure to add the Animal Kingdom to your list. My daughter was six the first time we visited Epcot, and she absolutely loved it and made me wonder why I waited so long. There are things your daughters will both love and enjoy together at each of the parks.

    Your last sentence was cut off, but I'm guessing you were asking about whether or not to invest in park hoppers. Since you are on a budget and it is your first time, I don't think it's necessary. One park a day will keep you all very busy. Just know that you will not get to do everything - I have been there countless times and still have much left to do.

    Hope this helps Kara! Write us back if you have any other questions as you plan your vacation.
