    Thx so much for answering my scheduling question so quickly. My follow up is Do you think I should add the park hopper to that trip as my ADR dictated most parks or should we stick with one park each day? Plan to take afternoon breaks. Love the advice!


    Certainly a park hopper would give you more daily flexibility. But you are visiting at a time when park crowds are lighter, so you should be able to get more attractions in your day than if you were there at a busier time.

    Having said that, I do think that with a 5 and 9 year old you might find the flexibility a nice addition. You can rearrange your days to include more extra Magic Hours. You could make the 11th a day where you start at the Animal Kingdom (with morning Extra Magic Hours), then have a nice afternoon/evening at Epcot. That would free up the 15th for a day at whatever park most motivates you, like a possible split between the Hollywood Studios and either Epcot or the Magic Kingdom.

    I hope that this helps!

    Have a magical vacation!
