Disney World info?

Is it worth paying extra (a signifigant chunk of change for a family of 5) to add the park-hopper option to a 5 day ticket? I was thinking with 5 days we could spend a day at each park and an extra day at Magic Kingdom, without buying the park-hopper. Bad idea? Also, has anyone been with a baby? I'll have a 5 month old. Do I leave the baby with Grandma (not sure how that'll work since I'll be breastfeeding) or bring grandma along, or would it be impossible to manage? Our kids will be 14, 11, 3.5 and 5 months.

  • Right now they have a special where you pay for 4 nights and get 3 free and that includes the hopper pass and you also get a 200 gift card.


    If grandma wants to stay behind and be with the baby, let her. You can still BF if you want while your out.

  • the only way you should buy a park hopper is if you get done one park early and want to go to another park and no it will not be impossiable to bring the baby and if your breast feeding you wont be able to leave the baby unless the baby takes a bottle or cup .

  • YES YES YES-if you are staying that long get the park hopper! This way, if the kids get tired-you can always revisit that park next day-or even later that night. Or, you can bounce around and just have the freedom to not be committed to a park for all day. Its worth it!

  • The buy 4, get 3 free isn't valid for when we're planning to go- not planning to go until this fall. But we're getting a great deal. My husband is in the military. He gets a free 5 day ticket and the rest of the family gets a 5 day ticket for $99 each. Seriously good deal! Even if you don't get the park hopper, can't you still leave a park and return to the same park later on in the day?

  • Well that sucks. Then yes the hopper pass is worth it! I'm not sure about leaving and coming back the same day. I would say yes because most parks are that way. I think they stamp your hand. You can call and find out. Have fun when you do go!
