I'll be traveling to WDW the 1st week of December with my DH, DS (3 yrs old), and my mom. We are purchasing 4 day hopper passes and this is the tentative schedule I have come up with. I know it is a jam-packed schedule, but I hope it will be possible to see all that we want to see. I figured we would stop at the resort and drop off our luggage around 11 am and head to DHS the 1st day (Monday). MK (Tuesday), AK (Wednesday), Epcot (Thursday), Check out of resort (Friday) and do Sea World before driving home. Can it be done? I'm debating wether or not to add an extra night at the resort, but DH doesn't want to spend the moolah!
I also think that based on your itenerary, the park hoppers are not necessary. I've never been to Sea World- but everything else seems doable. Obviously , you wont be able to see every attraction, so I would prioritize my must sees and try to set up a touring plan. I would also make opening each day arriving 15-30 minutes early. Have a great trip!
We're a park hopper family, but I agree with the others that if you're only doing one park/day you don't really need them. If you do want to try to take advantage of them, pick one park for the am and another for the evening.
your plans look great I hope that you and your family have a magical time at the world.

I agree, if you are only doing 1 park a day to save on the hopper option. If you decide to try park hopping, on our last trip with a 2 yr old & 13 mo old, we only went to Epcot in the evening. It is good for eating & seeing Illuminations. One evening we did World Showcase & on another evening we did Future World.
Also, make sure you schedule time at the resort pool, that is usually a big hit with little ones.
