    Thanks Bernie. We are also considering adding Waterparks&fun option to our non-expire tickets when we visit MK. Do you think it's a good idea for family with 2 toddlers? What's your advise on Park Hopper for family with young children? Thank you.

    Hi Jenny!

    Thank you for sending me this question directly.  I really appreciate it!

    I wouldn't recommend adding the Water Park Fun & More option to your tickets since you have toddlers unless you know there are at least two "fun visits" you want to do for sure.  For example, if you just think you want to visit a water park once, it would be less expensive to just buy a single use water park ticket for Typhoon Lagoon or Blizzard Beach.  With toddlers, I wouldn't recommend visiting DisneyQuest; I think it is a better experience for tweens and teenagers, especially those kids who love video games.

    The Park Hopper is a harder question to answer.  Some of the best restaurants in Walt Disney World are in the World Showcase portion of Epcot.  Some guests love to visit a different park and then hop over to Epcot for dinner.  With two toddlers, I think the answer of whether or not you should get a Park Hopper is tied to how you might tour.  Some guests with toddlers like to tour from early morning to late afternoon or early evening and then go back to their hotel to rest for the next day; others like to tour in the morning, take a break or nap in the afternoon, and then return in the evening.  If you think you are going to take an afternoon nap, then I suggest getting the Park Hopper option as that will provide you with a lot of flexibility.  However, if you think you are just going to stay in the park all day until you or the kids are tired, then I would suggest going without it.

    I hope this helps!  Good luck with your decision, and please write back with more questions!
