    Staying 8 days in June, w/ DH, DD10 and DD7, added park hopper w/ water parks,but SO unsure whether we need the hopper passes, plenty of time to see everything. Planning on taking midday breaks at pool (Pop).Could we get by w/ out it?Trying to save money

    Sounds like a fantastic family holiday you have to look forward to Jill! We loved Pop, and found the food court to be economical with lots to choose from.  I have not purchased the Park Hopper option since traveling with my daughter. We find one park per day is plenty. You do miss out on the obvious option of visiting multiple parks on the same day, which is handy if one park is exceptionally crowded, but we have been fine without it.

    Other ways to save money is to bring cereal bars and fruit and have breakfast in your room. You can also bring your own bottled water and snacks to the parks. Another option to consider is the new Quick Service Dining Plan, which might work for you and your family.

    Have a magical vacation!
