    We are planning to go to Disney from November 5th-13th it will be my husband, my 7 yr old daughter and myself. Any suggestions on what parks would be the best for my her? How do I get Disney hopper passes and how do they work?


    Great questions!

    So the Park Hopper is a ticket option that you add to your standard ticket purchase. Wherever you bought your ticket, just contact them and ask them to add the Hopper option. If you can't get that to work, just hit the ticket office when you visit your first park, or check in at your hotel, and tell them you want to add it to your package.

    With a park hopper, you can go into any and all of the four theme parks on any given day. So while you may go to the Magic Kingdom in the morning, you can leave and go to Epcot in the evening, if you wish. Just enter as normal, and the tickets will know you have that option.

    All four parks are going to be great for your daughter. My girls are 7 and 5, and I spend 2 or 3 days at the Magic Kingdom for every 1 day each at Epcot, Hollywood Studios, and the Animal Kingdom.

    Write me back if you have any follow-up questions.

    Have a magical vacation!
