  4. Do you want to also go to the water parks?
  5. Do you like to golf or miniature golf?
  6. Do you want to be able to visit multiple parks each day?

You can choose a 4-day 1 Park Per Day Ticket if you want to visit the four theme parks (Magic Kingdom Park, Epcot, Disney’s Animal Kingdom, and Disney’s Hollywood Studios).  Or you can add more days and choose to visit Magic Kingdom Park and/or Epcot twice!  Or just visit Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge at Disney’s Hollywood Studios two or three days on your Walt Disney World vacation!

If you want the convenience of coming and going between multiple theme parks each day then Park Hopper Option is best for you!  You can begin your day at one theme park, maybe head to the resort for a quick dip in the pool, and finish your evening at another park.  The next day you can start at the 3rd park and finish your day at the 4th park.  Maybe you want to spend a day at one park but really want to dine at a different park.  So many options that you can do with Park Hopper Option.

If you are planning on a once-in-a-lifetime vacation and really want to experience everything Walt Disney World has to offer then Park Hopper Plus Option would probably be your best bet.  You can do golf, miniature golf, water parks, and theme parks any number of times throughout your stay!
