    Hi we are planning our first Walt Disney World vacation the end of April 2012. We are traveling with 4 kids 6,8,11,13. We are buying 7 day park tickets. Should we add park hoppers? Or is there plenty to do we'll spend the whole day at just one park?

    Hi Cami - I always like to have the hopper option on my tickets so that I have maximum flexibility in what I do during the course of the day.  For instance, if you want to just go to dinner in one theme park, you'd have to spend the entire day there if you don't have the hopper option.  Also, Animal Kingdom usually closes early - so if you don't have a park hopper, you wouldn't be able to go to a theme park that evening.  In addition, the price is the same regardless of the number of days you have, so it's not very much per day spread out over seven days.

    If you decide not to go with the hopper option, I recommend that you really organize in advance to make sure that you know exactly what you want to do each day. 

    I hope that helps!
