Many of my emails are from sweet families who have never been to Disney. They are confused, concerned and they don't know where to begin.
How much does it cost? Why do you say no park hopper tickets? My kids are _ and _ years old...what should we do???
What is a meal plan? How do we get one?
This post is my attempt to strip away the extra confusion and break it down to help every family understand all this "Disney Talk."
When booking our rooms, what do you mean "inside the parks"?
Staying "in the parks" is Disney talk for staying on Disney property. You are in a Disney resort, which enables you to buy the meal plan and takes away the need for a car. Disney has a tram system that goes to every hotel, every park and more. You will be easily transported every day.
It's very awesome.
Why do you say no park hopper tickets? What are they?
"Park Hoppers" are tickets that enable you to go to as many parks a day as you please. You can go to one park in the morning and another at night. Or one park in the morning, one for lunch and one for dinner. It's up to you.
I'm not a huge fan of park hoppers when bringing little kids to Disney World. If you want to go back out at night after a day at the Magic Kingdom, go back to the Magic Kingdom. The only tricky part of sticking with one park a day is planning your meals. If you are doing the dining plan (more on that below) you will need to plan accordingly.
