Park hopping from AKL

We have park hopper tix (family of four - kids ages 10 & 8, plus my 50+ sister who will be staying at Pop Century). We may park hop one or two days, but any more than that is intimidating to me due to AKL's distance from the parks. What do you think? We will be using Disney transpo or taxis in rare instances, but I hate to spend the extra money on taxis.

Same question goes for the "afternoon break" that is so highly recommended. I feel like if we go back to the hotel during the hot part of the afternoon for rest and swim, it will be really hard to motivate to go back to a park (esp. MK which seems so far).

the park hopping was not a problem for us from AKL, remember that you can hop from one park to another without going back to the hotel - -we did not find it too far to go take a break and go out again, especially if the parks are open late (summer hours), sometimes we do our "break" by staying at the hotel in the am and then going out to the parks in the pm - when the 1st wave is coming back to the hotel...depends on the time of year

I've been trying to run the numbers for an AKL stay about a year from now for my honeymoon and it keeps looking like renting DVC in Jambo House will be the most cost effective??? Is that true? Mind you I can't officially price this due to numbers not being out yet but I just want to make sure if we're going to splurge on this resort we don't blow our entire budget on the room. My number crunching is making a regular room $300-400 more expensive. That just seems like I'm screwing something up.

We went about the same time last year and were able to see both the Halloween and Christmas decorations. All in one trip! Not every park, but enough to satisfy.

You are figuring correctly... if you rent DVC points. Paying cash for any reservation (rack rate) will cost more than renting points from a DVC member (unless they are charging waaay too much per point... not usually the case)!

Have fun planning!

By far the most cost effective.

For us, its costing $20 more than it would have been to stay at a moderate WITH a 30% discount.

Rent DVC all the way
