T. if this is your first time I would definately save your money and do not purchase the park hopper (this is a pass that you can use to enter multiple parks on the same day), you will most likely spend a whole day at each park. I have been twice and that would be my advice. I went just this August and I just love it! Make sure and visit the nemo and bugs show at Animal Kingdom they are both great. The firework show at Epcot is Spectacular! Parade of lights at Magic Kingdom is awesome... you can go to downtown disney for an evening dinner to relax..the full size lego's that they have built there is really something to see. Have a great time and enjoy it! If your kids like rides make sure and visit the, I believe, Aerosmith roller coaster at MGM and last but not least the laser show there...dont leave without seeing it! Hope this helps! HAVE FUN!!
