    Planning 1st trip to Disney World and wondering if the park hopper passes are really worth the extra money? We will probably be staying 5 or 6 nights, so is it better to pay the extra or stay in one park all day?

    Hi Keshia,

    Since this is your very first Disney World vacation, I recommend getting the Base Tickets instead of the Park Hoppers. There is so much to see and do in each park! You would be better off opting to fully immerse yourselves in one theme park per day and soaking in everything that each has to offer.  Park Hoppers are wonderful once you have visited Disney several times and you have your favorite "must do" attractions with limited time to do them all. That being said, as many times as my family has gone to Disney World, we still usually only visit one park per day (and that is with Annual Passes that would allow us to Park Hop). Some of the really special, unique places in each park are often over looked because people are in a hurry and trying to cram too much in. Take the time to truly enjoy each park and save the extra money for souvenirs!

    Please let me know if I can assist you further and have a wonderful vacation,
