    Hi Nicole!

    It sounds like you are planning a wonderful trip already! I'm glad I have the opportunity to help out a little!

    First, here's a quick overview of ticket options:

    • With base Magic Your Way tickets, you can visit 1 theme park (Magic Kingdom, Epcot, Animal Kingdom, or Hollywood Studios) per day
    • With the Park Hopper option you can move between the 4 theme parks as much as you'd like within a single day
    • With the Water Parks, Fun & More option, you receive 1 visit to any of the water parks, Disney Quest, ESPN's Wide World of Sports or a round golf at Oak Trail per day of your visit. So, for 4-day tickets, you'd have a total of 4 fun visits to use as you wish. You can visit one water park per day, 2 water parks per day, or even Disney Quest and a water park. Each entry to one of these places equals 1 visit. There is no need to have the Park Hopper option added in order to visit two in a single day

    If you do not plan on visiting two of the theme parks in a single day, then I wouldn't advise adding the Park Hopper option. With younger kids, it is often very hard to pack multiple parks into a single day, there is just too much to do.

    Once you are at Walt Disney World, and if you find you really want to park hop, you can always add this option later. Just visit any guest relations window and let them know you'd like to upgrade. For me, this often makes sense, since I'm not sure if our schedule will allow park hopping and I'd prefer not to spend the money if I don't need to!

    I hope you have a great spring break!
