Help!! I'm trying to decide whether or not to get the park hopper option, or the water park option. It's myself, my boyfriend and his parents who will be going and we're going the last week of September and the first week of October. We're spending 5 of the 14 days in the park
Goodmorning. That is a great time to visit and the weather is still wonderful. We used to do both when the kids were teenagers and we were younger, now we do the base tickets withe the fun and more. 14 days is a great amount of time to be there and don't know what else you have planned but if you do the fun and more we break up our days with 2 days in park and a free day( being a water park, DTD or Disney quest ). We just plan on staying in the parks all day. Enjoy. Happy planning - mmddgp  374.4 #18 10:38AM
The reason why I like park hoppers is because I can stay at whatever park is open late. It's a tough decision. Good luck. - 5disneylovers  773.6 #5 11:12PM
We do park hopper so we don't have to eat at the same park we want to visit that day. We also like to visit multiple parks in 1 day. We don't really do water parks because we don't have time to fit them in. We paid for the option last year and didn't go to either water park. - girlonfire  52.6 #89 11:40PM
Water park is fun, but i guess its kinda chilly during that month (not sure though coZ im from california, dont know the weather there). Go for PARK HOPPER OPTION... You can really maximiZe your stay at WDW with that. - otilegna  1745.3 #67 11:54PM
I love the freedom park hoppers provide. I commonly visit more than one park in a day, sometimes planned, other times spontaneously. I don't usually spend time at the water parks. But, if that's your thing, it might be worth it. Hopefully that helps. Have fun! - CollegeDisneyKnowledgeGrad  800.7 #3 12:05AM
I liked the park hopper, if you want to head to do a few rides at one park and eat at another then catch fireworks at one you can. It gives you so many more options. - ccmom  184.1 #40 12:43AM
Quote from a frommers DW book i was reading the other day re base tickets vs park hopper tix..... "What happens when during your stay... You've been to all the parks"... And you decide.... You really wanted that souvenir,etc .... Do you use the park ticket for just that one thing or just leave it? - bubbaschoice  53.8 #87 2:46AM
We use the park hopper each time we go we go to a park then go back to the hotel to rest then to another park after we rest wont go without a park hopper - jeri814  102.9 #59 6:51AM
Go park hopper. Nice to be able to bounce around during the day. Taking the buses in between the parks is not bad. I have seen some recent posts on the DL side of people whining about the buses. I guess I am not spoiled since I don't own a car, but it is very easy and you do not lose a lot of time. - Lelundrial  440.0 #419 11:25AM
