    Hello, we are wondering if the Park Hopper option may be too much for our six yr. old and if I choose to buy the MYM 5 day, can I choose the park we wish on the last day ?

    Hi, Brian!  I do more park hopping now that my youngest daughter is approaching eight years old.  The younger they were, the less appealing the hopper option was.  In some cases, if I had rented a stroller, I'd have to return it in one park and pick up another in the next.  My kids also always seemed to have their biggest meltdowns on the way out of a theme park, and it made going to another one seem like a bad idea.  We mostly did it if we planned a short day anyway, and just wanted to hit a few major attractions, or we did it to grab dinner in one theme park after spending the day in another.

    I'd say that if you think you will want to plan your days that way - so that you can maybe have dinner at EPCOT after spending the afternoon at the Magic Kingdom - then it's a great option, even with a six year old.  You also may find that on your first or last day, you want to hit some of your favorite attractions at each park, and you'll be hopping between them.

    With the theme park tickets, you can use any day at any park - you don't have to visit all four, you can use your Magic Your Way to visit one park for five days straight.  So, on your last day, you can absolutely visit any park you want - and the same is true for the other days of your park passes.

    I hope you have an amazing vacation!
