    Jamie Asked

    Hello, thank you for your time and experience. Am wanting to find out if PH passes are "worth-it " for DH, DD4 and myself . We arrive before noon 9/15 and leave 4:30 on 9/20. We want to experience as much as poss. w/o wearing DD out.

    Hey there Jamie!  It's my pleasure to assist you again with your Walt Disney World Vacation! You know.. that is a really good question! My family always purchases the 10 day Magic Your Way Park Hopper Ticket with the no expiration option. We were in the "Happiest Place on Earth" this past week and used the Park Hopper Option on two days and chose not to park-hop on another day.To be perfectly honest, it can be tiring "park hopping" with "little ones" if you do not go back to the room for a midday nap/break. My kids range in age from 7 to 14 and on our first park day we park hopped without taking a break from the parks and were exhausted by 7:00 p.m. On our last day of visiting parks, we went back to our standard way of park touring. We left our first park for the day around 3:00 p.m. and went back for a much needed nap. After a relaxing dinner at our Disney Resort, we entered a second park using our Park Hopper Option around 8:00 p.m. and enjoyed a few hours in that park. My recommendation would be to decide which parks you want to visit on your September Trip and create an itinerary based on the Park Hours for your vacation dates. Follow the link I have provided to view the Park Hours for your dates of travel. You can also visit the Disney Parks website and look at each park's list of attractions to determine if you think you will want to spend an entire day in that particular theme park or just a partial day. I think Disney's Animal Kingdom park can be experienced in less time than say Magic Kingdom. If you decide to not purchase the Park Hopper Option and you would like to visit Disney's Animal Kingdom theme park, you could always enjoy your Disney Resort or Downtown Disney that evening or enjoy an early dinner at Rainforest Café at the park before leaving.Please let me know if I can be of further assistance to you. Best wishes for a most Magical Walt Disney World Vacation, Jamie!
