    We are going to WDW with a 3 year old for Mickey's Halloween Party! Is it worth buying the Park Hopper? Im getting the party ticket and going in at 4 that day, then starting the MYW after that. Im getting 5 MYW tickets. What are your thoughts on this?

    Hi Sarah!  Mickey's Not-So-Scary Halloween Party is one of my favorite Disney events!  You will have a great time!

    For park tickets, it really depends on if you plan to go to different parks on the same day while you are there.  For the day of the party, your party ticket will be your entrance into Magic Kingdom that evening.  So, you could use one of your base tickets that day if you wanted to visit another park.

    For the rest of your stay, you just need to decide if you plan to park hop.  With a three-year-old, you may want to plan an afternoon nap if you are staying on Disney property.  You could visit the parks in the morning, go back and nap, and then hit the parks again in the afternoon.  Sometimes we will visit different parks on those days and sometimes we go back to the same park.

    If you are going to be there longer than 4 days, then you really wouldn't need the park hopper option.  You would have enough time to hit all the parks on different days.  It seems like you are getting 5-Day tickets.  In my opinion, you wouldn't need the hopper option unless you were set on visiting multiple parks in one day.

    I hope this helps!  Let me know if you have any other questions!
