    Hi, My question is,I have a 5yr boy & 8yr girl, we will be there for 10 days in May (first trip to DW) and we have not decided if the Hopper pass or the Day passes for the parks suit us best. what do you think??

    Hi Josie!

    If you are going to Walt Disney World for 10 days, you will have plenty of time to do most of the attractions in the theme parks and water parks.  I think you could easily get by without purchasing the Park Hopper option for your Magic Your Way tickets.  However, with that much time, I do suggest getting the Water Park Fun and More Option.

    However, if having a lot of good dining options is important to you, especially for dinner, then I would suggest getting Park Hoppers.  That's because there are a lot of great restaurants in the World Showcase portion of Epcot.  A lot of guests like visiting a different park in the morning and then hopping over to Epcot in the evening for a great meal in one of the country pavilions.

    By the way, you can wait until you get to Walt Disney World to add the Park Hopper option.  You will want to do it within the first couple of days, however, to get the most value out of the option.  The cost of the option is the same regardless of the number of days you get it for.

    It's not an easy decision.  I hope this helps!  Good luck, and write back if you have any more questions!
