Hey everyone! I haven't been on in a while, just been busy. I was wondering, are park hopper tickets worth the expense? We will be there are 8 days, if that helps with your answer.

Have you ever been to WDW? I think you should always try it at least once. But 8 days is good for passing on the park hopper ... If you don't really want the extra expense. - JessiBelle22  78.4 #81 7:33AM
Oh ... Hello, and good morning! lol :) - JessiBelle22  78.4 #81 7:34AM
No, I've never been. My fiancΓ© and I are thinking of doing our honeymoon there. Thanks and good morning to you. - MindyCowgirl  13.8 #202 7:36AM
If it's just the two of you, hoppers are great. You can go to one park in the morning, chill at the resort, and then go to another for dinner and fireworks/show. - mrsincredible  1076.4 #6 5:13PM
We do park hopper so we can go to one park in the morning then back to the hotel to rest then another one later - jeri814  138.9 #60 7:50AM
We get the hopper because we want to know we have flexibility. But honestly we never use it. Are days are planed so whatever park were in we stay there all day - Schramke  536.6 #14 7:57AM
We have done both ways. If you are staying on property and have 8 day passes you really don't need park hoppers. It will be your honeymoon and you may want some down time also. We always stay at least 8 days and we get the magic your way with the fun and more for at least 5 days that way you will have 5 days in parks and you will 5 fun options(water parks, Disney quest, putt putt, wide world of sports) utilize the extra magic hours if you are staying on property - mmddgp  751.5 #9 8:01AM
You may want to consider the hopper option just in case you want to mix in some dining at one park and attractions at another. It's always nice to have the ability to go to 2 parks in one day. We always get tired mid day and return after a break. That way, you can mix it up! - JetsamsTwin  379.9 #20 8:09AM
I would never book a trip without park hopper. It gives you great flexibility. Definintely worth the extra money. - leveretttltl  89.6 #78 1:25PM
I think it depends on you. I never park hop...but I have small kids so to me it's a hassle. When they are older,maybe I'll try again. For my family it's an extra $300. I rather buy souvenirs. - BodinFabFive  26.3 #140 1:40PM
Thanks everyone! It's all been very helpful!! :) - MindyCowgirl  13.8 #202 1:44PM
Its what we get everytime and we always love them. You can go to any park in the same day without it counting as more than one day. Its nice to have that kind of flexibility. - batesjake  10.1 #248 1:53PM
I'm in the minority.  I save the extra $$ to spend in the shops, nothing like Disney shopping!  Since you can easily spend an entire day at any given park, we just go to one each day.  Our next trip is 8 days: 3 days at MK, 1 day at HS, 1 day at AK, 2 days at EPCOT and we are doing 1 day's worth of activities at AKL and minigolf. - DizneyGirl  845.7 #7 2:19PM
I'm glad you got your minigolf! :) - BagGal  242.0 #35 3:19PM
If the weather holds out, I'm hoping its rained enough lately for the rest of the year, lol. - DizneyGirl  845.7 #7 4:55PM
Haha! Yeah, no kidding! How many more days? - BagGal  242.0 #35 10:02PM
We bought the park hopper for the first time for this next trip.  We bought it because we are going to have a "greatest hits day" where we won't have anything scheduled and we can go around and pick our favorites to re-visit.  Also a couple days we wanted to go to one park in the morning and then to another park for EMH in the evening.  I think it just depends on what you want to see and do on your trip.  :) - BagGal  242.0 #35 3:11PM
I love the freedom park hoppers provide, so for me, it's definitely worth it! I know it's hard to decide when you have yet to experience WDW. But, try to think about how you like to plan your days to determine if it would be worth the expense for you. - CollegeDisneyKnowledgeGrad  1177.8 #4 4:42PM
We have done both and definitely think the hoppers are worth it. It is really nice to know that if you get to a park and it is too crowded you can jump on the bus and go to another that is less crowded. - poohbr1205  21.2 #160 5:01PM
I was thinking of eliminating the hopper option because we never use it. But we kept it for the security of its there if we want to use it. - MagicalFamily  65.6 #89 4:16AM
