    We are scheduled for our first visit to WDW in Dec 2014. We have a four year old, staying at Art of Animation. Should we do the park hopper or not? My child may need a nap or break during the day so not sure if we would even be able to use the hopper perks

    Hi Kylie,

    This is a great question and I often encourage first time guests to simply book a base ticket. Especially with a li'l Mouseketeer who will likely need a break in the afternoon, it makes sense both logistically and financially to eliminate the park hopper option. There is SO much to see and do around Walt Disney World, one park per day can be a great plan. I would also suggest firming up an itinerary once the park hours are released (usually around 6 months in advance). This way you can take advantage of Extra Magic Hours since you are staying at Disney's Art of Animation.

    I wish you a magical vacation, Kylie, and please let me know if you have any further questions.
