    Hi, we are traveling in November with my daughter who will be 6 months at the time, I'm torn between 2-day pass with park hopper or 3 day regular pass. We have been many many times so this trip will be more relaxing and about the baby!

    Hi Lacey,

    Thanks for visiting Disney Parks Moms Panel, and hello to a fellow NJ Disney fan!

    I'm sure you're excited for Walt Disney World! Our little guy was 9 months old when we first visited Walt Disney World with him, and of all our many trips over all these many years, that first trip remains a constant source of precious memories. First photo in front of Cinderella Castle? Love it. First photo with Mickey? Love it. Video of first parade on Main Street, U.S.A.? Love it. You get the idea. For us, it was all about our baby and his experiences.

    I gather you've enjoyed the magic many, many times, and that you're more focused on choosing your experiences than seeing every attraction and every show. Personally, in this situation, I would go with the Park Hopper Option. I think a regular admission ticket is a great choice when you want to spend the full day enjoying everything in the theme park of the day. I think your November trip feels different. Because you've visited many, many times, my sense is that you will know best what you want to make a priority. You will know best which character experiences, entertainment, and attractions in which theme park you'll most appreciate for your baby girl. For us, with our little one on that trip I mentioned, we focused on character experiences and photos. We relaxed and strolled and followed the magic and also let the magic come to us. We hopped across the theme parks to capture as many moments as possible with Disney friends. I personally think that in your situation a 2-day theme park ticket with the Park Hopper Option would give you the opportunity to create and collect just the right moments. Were the circumstances different, were this your first visit, I would recommend a regular theme park admission and encourage you to experience a theme park in its entirety.

    Lacey, here's wishing you all the magic!

The playful and creative optimism of all things Disney has enthralled me since I was a kid. I loved watching "The Wonderful World of Disney" on Sunday nights, seeing all the live-action and animated classics in theaters, and — of course — visiting "The Most Magical Place on Earth" for the first time 45 years ago. These days, the big kid in me still loves to play Disney. As a long-time Disney destinations vacationer, I'm looking forward to helping you play Disney starting here at planDisney!
