    We will be in WDW in April for 5 days. I noticed that besides the Magic Kingdom, all the other parks close around 7 pm. Is it worth it to pay the extra money to get Hopper passes, so that at least we have something to do in the evening?

    Hi Lori!

         You could purchase the Park Hopper Option for your tickets to be able to hop to a Park that is open later in the evening.  I would also suggest some great nighttime things to do in Walt Disney World that don't require a ticket to do.  Here is a list of some of my favorite things to do at night in Walt Disney World:

    1. Investigate Downtown Disney--lots of great shops, places to eat, and things to see

    2. Discover the Boardwalk Area near Epcot- street performers and many great places to dine, all with a carnival atmosphere on the shore of Crescent Lake

    3. Explore the Monorail Resorts--The Contemporary Resort, the Polynesian, and the Grand Floridian.  The lobby of each of these Resorts is an attraction in itself

    4. Play a round of Mini-Golf at Winter/Summerland near Blizzard Beach or Fantasia Gardens near the Swan and Dolphin Resorts

    5. Gaze at Wishes and the Electrical Water Pageant from the beach of the Polynesian Resort (this is my all time favorite)

    I hope that you make some amazing discoveries on your next trip to Walt Disney World!

    Keep Dreaming Big!
