    1st time bringing our 5yo birthday princess. Loves Princess and cant decide if we should spend whole days@AK& HS or just half days? Seems like so much more she would be interested in @MK&E? Can I add park hopper for just the days we want it? Thank

    Hi, Quinton!  First, adding a park hopper option is $57 per ticket, whether you have a one day ticket or a three day ticket - any Magic Your Way ticket, so you are adding it to the type of ticket you purchase - whether you buy a one day pass, a three day pass, a five day pass, etc.  It isn't broken out by day.

    My youngest daughter's favorite park is Disney's Animal Kingdom, and honestly, she could spend all day brushing sheep if I let her.  If you can play it by ear, and determine whether or not you need a full day once you are there, so you know if your daughter is interested in more than you expected.  Don't forget to add in time to grab lunch and see shows.  

    My older two daughters can easily do Animal Kingdom in a half day, but they've always loved the shows at Hollywood Studios, so that extends my day there.  Again, it really is up to the child.

    I would say if time or budget is a big factor, allow yourself the half day, but prioritize what you don't want to miss.  That way, there won't be any long faces because you've missed one of your must dos!

    Have a great vacation!
