    We are traveling to Disney world with another family in September. We will have 3 toddlers, 2 kids and 4 adults. Is it beneficial to do the park hopper tickets or is it unrealistic to think we could do more than one park a day with all of the kids?

    Hey Lauren!

    How exciting to be visiting the Walt Disney World Resort with another family in September! As a mom of four children myself, I have always found the Park Hopper Option to be very beneficial even when my children were toddlers. Although I have never felt the need to "park hop" on the days we visited Magic Kingdom Park, we often do so when visiting the other 3 theme parks. I have found the Park Hopper Option allows for greater flexibility when booking Advanced Dining Reservations and FastPass+ selections.  

    When my children were toddlers, we would often visit one theme park in the morning and then head back to our Disney Resort hotel for an afternoon nap. In the evening, we would visit a different park in order to experience a few of the nighttime activities or enjoy a Table-Service meal in that particular theme park. That being said,  if you will be there for several days and have ample time designated for each park, I do think you can experience everything on your "must do" list without needing to add the Park Hopper Option.

    I hope this helps in making the best decision for your family.  If you have any additional questions, please don't hesitate to visit us again. Best wishes for a magical trip, Lauren!

    Happy Travels,
