Do you need park hoppers? I have never used park hoppers in the four times I have gone. All my trips had school age children involved and I can't think of a time I really felt like leaving one park to go to another. We pick the park we are going for the day and we go, if we take a break in the afternoon at the hotel, we would just head to the same park after our break. Early closing times like 5p.m. at AK in February, we would just go to Downtown Disney at night or plan a nice dinner at one of the resorts.
