    We are planning a May 2016 visit to Disney World. I have a 1yr old and 5yr old. What would you say is our best option for tickets? Would a 2 day park hopper option be enough (we'd like to do 3 parks) 

    Hello, Lori!

    Welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel!  It looks like your upcoming Walt Disney World trip is just around the corner...this is SO exciting!!!

    For families with small children, I would recommend only purchasing the Magic Your Way base ticket instead of upgrading to the Park Hopper Option. Traveling from one Disney Theme Park to another can take upwards of an hour.  When you add small children, strollers, bags, and souvenirs to the mix, it will take your family even longer. (I know this from experience because I have five kids!) To make the most of your time, pick one Disney Theme Park and stay there the whole day.  You have reentry access to that specific park anytime during the day, so you could leave and let the kids take naps. After they wake up, your family can come back later in the afternoon to enjoy more time in the same park.

    If you want to enjoy three Disney Theme Parks on your vacation, make sure you purchase a three-day Magic Your Way base ticket. 

    If you have other questions, please let us know!

    Have a MAGICAL day!
