    We are planning a last minute, first time trip to WDW. We are staying 5 nights, should we get the Park Hopper? And is the quick service dining plan a good idea? Thank you!

    Hi Kerry - I personally prefer to have the park hopper option on my tickets, because we like having the flexibility of going to more than one park per day, especially for dinner.  If you plan to visit all four parks, you should definitely consider it, because you probably won't need to spend all day at Animal Kingdom, and having the hopper allows you to go to a different resort in the evening.

    I think the Disney Dining plans are always a great idea, and if you don't think you'll be eating at any table service restaurants, the quick service dining plan would be ideal.  I find that I always save money when I have a dining plan.

    Have a great vacation!
