First of all, welcome to MouseBuzz, and congrats on taking your first trip to Disney! :happy: :laugh: How exciting! Be sure to write a trip report on MB once you get back! I’d love to read it.
[QUOTE=totallyaries;934131]Thanks! We have base tickets, but I may upgrade to Hopper when we get there…we will be there for 7 days…I’m on Disney overload right now with all the info that I’ve been reading. I just want to make the most out of this trip, my son lost his dad and I want this to be the best experience for him possible, he’s had a rough couple of years![/QUOTE]
I definitely recommend upgrading to a park hopper. It’s so much more flexible. If you get into the park and realize it’s pretty crowded, then you can hop over to another park. It’s also easier to work around your dining reservations and Extra Magic Hours if you have park hoppers.
As for what to do on your first day, we like to head straight to the parks. The park we go to really depends on what resort we’re staying at, but as many have already said, nothing starts the trip off better than a visit to Magic Kingdom!
If you don’t decide to upgrade to PH, then Downtown Disney is another great option. It’s a great way to get a dose of Disney magic without actually going to a park.
