    I will be staying at Disney campgroungs May 2-7 2010, but only have hopper passes for three days. We would like to see all parks in three days, and suggestions on how to do so? We will be traveling with 9 and 12 year old boys.

    Hi Bonnie!
        It is so great that your trip to Walt Disney World is coming up so soon!  My advice for you to be able to go to all four Parks with 3 days of Park Hopper Tickets would be to utilize the benefit of Extra Magic Hours to maximize your time in the Parks.  I also would recommend that you spend a full day in the Magic Kingdom and Epcot and a half of day in Animal Kingdom and Hollywood Studios.  You will also need to select the attractions that you must see in each Park and order them by priority because you will not have time to do everything in each Park.  I looked up the Extra Magic Hours for the week of May 2nd to 7th, 2010 and came up with a sample plan for you.

    Sunday, May 2nd, 2010 (Magic Kingdom Day)
    Magic Kingdom--Park Hours 9 am to 10 pm with Evening Extra Magic Hours 10 pm to 1 am
    (since this is your arrival day you may not want to use a ticket on this day depending on when you arrive)

    Monday, May 3rd, 2010 (1/2 Animal Kingdom and 1/2 Hollywood Studios Day)
    Animal Kingdom Morning Extra Magic Hours-- 8 am to 9 am and Park Hours 9 am to 5 pm (you can leave Animal Kingdom around 1 pm to head to Hollywood Studios--take a bus to any Epcot Resort and transfer to a bus heading to Hollywood Studios)

    Hollywood Studios--Park Hours 9 am to 7 pm with Evening Extra Magic Hours 7 pm to 10 pm

    Tuesday, May 4th, 2010 (Epcot Day)
    Epcot Morning Extra Magic Hours-- 8 am to 9 am and Park Hours 9 am to 9 pm

    Thursday, May 6th, 2010 (Alternate Magic Kingdom Day)
    Magic Kingdom--Morning Extra Magic Hours-- 8 am to 9 am and Park Hours 9 am to 10 pm

    I hope that this sample plan gives you an idea of how to maximize your 3 day tickets and I also hope that your trip to Walt Disney World is full of magic!

    Keep Dreaming Big!
