    We're staying 5 days & using single park tickets (not park hop) for one park each day then on the 5th day,pick one park to repeat.But we're wondering if we need park hopping tickets just to be able to see all the night time shows we want?

    Hi Kim! 

    I love your question because I love having Theme Park Tickets with the Park Hopper Option! Your question is spot on! There might be attractions, dining, or entertainment you want to enjoy on a specific night that may or may not coincide with the day you select to be in a particular theme park. 

    On our most recent vacation, we started one of our days at Disney's Hollywood Studios and ended at Magic Kingdom Park. This wasn't planned. It just happened on a whim due to FastPass+ availability at Magic Kingdom Park. On other occasions, we have started at one theme park and then ended up at Epcot so we could enjoy a yummy meal in the World Showcase. When you factor in fireworks and other entertainment, the ability to hop from theme park to theme park adds so much magic to any Walt Disney World Resort vacation.

    Can you still have a magical time without the Park Hopper Option? Absolutely! I know several Guests who prefer to stay in one theme park the entire day. It really depends on what your plans and priorities are during your Walt Disney World Resort vacation.

    Thanks for sharing your question with the Disney Parks Moms Panel! I hope this helps you decide which ticket option is best for you and your traveling party. Please let me know if you need any other information as you continue planning your magical Walt Disney World Resort vacation.
