    Went with the current deal park pass and dining. get there around 5 onarrival and leave about the same. for a 7 night trip should we get passes for the entire trip or just the days inbetween?notice the cost dif is not that great. Also Park Hopper Y or N?

    Hi Shawn - you are right, the price difference to add additional days won't be that significant.  If I were you, I'd probably plan to go to the parks on the last day, because if you are leaving at 5, you can still get quite a bit in during the morning hours.  However, I probably wouldn't plan to go on the first night.  If you fly in at 5, you probably won't have too much time in the parks that night.  If you do want to start your vacation as soon as you arrive, you could always visit Downtown Disney, which doesn't require a ticket.

    As for the park hopper, I'd recommend adding it if you can.  I love having the option to visit multiple parks per day, and we usually prefer to go to dinner at Epcot, even if we don't visit Epcot that day.  Having the park hopper option will also allow you to visit a park for a half day, which is always a good option to have.

    Have a great vacation!
