    I will be staying at WDW w/ my mom from 11/27-12/07, since we should be plenty of time to visit and revisit parks would it be worth it to have park hopper tickets, or should we stick to regular 1 day 1 park tickets? Thanks!

    Hi, Livia!  My family usually just sticks to one park per day.  I even try to make sure any dining reservations I have are at whatever park I'll be visiting for the day, just so I don't have to change parks!

    I travel both with young children and occasionally my parents or in-laws, and it can be a bit time consuming to move from one park to another.  I'd rather stay where I am, enjoy all there is, and start fresh in a new park the next day!

    Some reasons to have park hoppers would be if you plan on dining in a different park than the one you intend to spend your day enjoying; or if you plan on doing all of your shopping on one day.  In that case, you might want to have the option to go from one park to another to pick up souvenirs that you saw along the way.

    I also think if you are staying at a Walt Disney World resort hotel and want to extend your days, it can help to have park hoppers to take advantage of the Extra Magic Hours.  That would allow you entrance to a park an hour earlier each morning, then give you up to an extra three hours each night at a different park!  You would need a hopper to take advantage of those hours.

    Have a great vacation!
