    Another question, we are staying for 10 days at the end of September into October. Do you think it was worth paying extra for park hoppers for dining flexibility and change of parks if they seem to get busy? Thanks so much!

    Hello Heather!

    We always get the park hopper option. I like being able to "hop" to another park if we find the one we're in is getting too crowded. It really does give you a lot more freedom when it comes to planning your days and making your dining reservations. The park hopper also works well for us because there are parks where we can see and do everything we want to see and do in half a day. In these cases, it's nice to be able to finish one park by early afternoon and visit a second park later that day for dinner and fireworks.

    I especially believe it's worthwhile to upgrade when you're staying for ten days. The park hopper currently costs an extra $50 per ticket, so for a 10 day ticket it's only $5 a day per person. In my opinion, I would definitely add park hopping, if it's within your budget to do so.

    Have a wonderful vacation!!
