Probably more quickly than they change their resorts! And I have found that there is at least one person on here (not going to mention names ) that has made at least four resort changes.

I love Cape May!! LTT is good as well, but we went for lunch. Not sure if the dinner menu is different. Cape May is one of the biggies we're going to miss this time being on the QSDP. That and Rose and Crown.

Same here, we stay about 2 hours. We love Tusker HOuse breakfast, so we go for that, Dinosaur, EE, and the Lion King show. We have done everything in the past, just dont care to again.

Like you, I am not planning a park for our arrival day. Eating a POP and then letting the kids have some pool time or work-off-some-energy time would probably be a good idea instead of trying to go somewhere else.

Monday, Epcot -- sounds good to me. You know they always say to avoid MK on Mondays. You can spend several hours in the The Seas and The Land pavilions and those are definitely great for kids. Good for you for planning those nap times. I think that will make a world of difference for your kids (instead of trying to get them to sleep in their stroller seats). Biergarten is one of our favorites.

Tuesday, MK -- again, sounds good to me. The kids will have a blast.

Wednesday, AK in the a.m. and HS in the p.m. -- This one I'm a little on the fence about. You bought park hoppers (I assume) but will only use them once, that's kind of pricey. (That's me, always looking at the budget.) We will be at AK that day (I'm doing all the a.m. EMH parks). Your kids are at a great age for seeing the animals. Make sure you find the "secret" trails around the Tree of Life where there are a lot of animals that everyone seems to miss, we seldom see anyone on these trails. And also do both the Maharajah Jungle Trek and the Pangani Exploration Trail. And don't forget the train to Rafiki's Animal Watch. (Hmmm, can you tell AK is our favorite park?) ETA -- The Oasis has a lot of animals to see also.

Now here's where I'm on the fence about your plans. Instead of doing HS in the evening, why not go back to AK since they changed the hours and will now be open until 7:00 that night? Then back to the room for an earlier bedtime for the kids or pool before bed.

Then, I would go ahead and do HS on Thursday a.m. We personally don't find it a park that consumes a lot of our time. You could spend the morning there and then go back to your room for naps. Do the pool after naps or dinner. I think if you just hung out at POP or went shopping (I hate shopping so that would not even be on my schedule, lol) you would feel restless and wish you were at a park. They are so close and here you are in a store, blah. For the evening, then you could head to DTD for shopping and dinner, back to your room for early bedtime so you are ready to hit the road Friday (I assume).

Ok, so there's my suggestion. Skip the park hopper, give each park one day.
Thanks so much. I am all over the place. I also feel like 3 days for the travel time is crazy, but- that is what works for our family. We can't spend $1000 to fly and I am a teacher and cannot extend the vacation from work as per contract yadda yadda. I think I have to let go of getting to every park for this trip. A lot of people have said we need more than one day at MK..... Perhaps 2 days there, 1 EP and 1/2 at HS or AK on the last day? Decisions, decisions! No more hopping- you and pp are right- so much money.

I have to wonder if I'm missing something.

I just ran the numbers on the Disney site again, and it's only an additional $94 or so for us to add the Park Hopper for four of us for a 7-night stay. We thought it was well-worth-while to have that flexibility.

Am I missing something?

We have always gotten PH too. I like them b/c I'm not so restricted to ADRs too.

according to what I'm looking at, 7 day base tickets for 2 adults/2 kids comes to $1114. With Hopper comes to $1344.
