I posted a in a different thread regarding skipping Epcot with a 5 yr old. The general consensus wast to def not skip it..lol. So, I'm thinking about either adding an extra day to our trip or sucking it up and buying hoppers, which wasn't my original plan. Funny how these boards make you change plans over and over. I haven't booked yet but will next month for either a Sept or Oct trip. I went to revise our package and found that if I kept the same amount of days and added the hoppers, it was $111 cheaper than adding an extra day. That is with the DDP which I know we'll be using. Does anyone have thoughts on which is best? It's a first trip for all of us so I'm not sure if it's just better to dedicate full days to the park and not worry about hopping or buy the hoppers in case our son isn't feeling one of the parks. I'm now leaning towards the hoppers because I heard Animal Kingdom is not really a full day park. Does anyone spend a whole day there with little ones? I'm not totally against spending 3/4 a day or whatever and then having some down time to do whatever. I don't think we'll spend much time at the pools as my son is not a water kid. But I feel like since we are spending what is to us, a lot of money, that maybe it would be better to buy the hoppers instead of an extra day so we can really get our money's worth and visit different parks on the same day.
