Have you ever been to Walt Disney World? If so, you should know that there are four theme parks. Magic Kingdom, Animal Kingdom, Hollywood Studios, and Epcot. Most people buy a theme park ticket which allows them to access one park per day. Then there are folks who purchase Park Hopper Tickets. That gives them the freedom to visit more than one park in a day. Typically they’ll visit a park in the morning and a park at night. But us, we’re taking things to the extreme. We’re going to attempt a 4 Parks 1 Day Challenge! You read that right, we’re going to visit all four theme parks in one day!
That’s silly, right? You’ll be rushed and won’t enjoy it. You’ll waste so much time on transportation. That’s just plain dumb. Yup. And I’m so excited! It’s a challenge and as a seasoned Walt Disney World Expert and Authorized Disney Travel Planner, I’m always looking for something fun and exciting to try.
So here’s the plan. It’ll be my family (daughter’s 7 and 3) and my parents. That’s right. Not only are we crazy enough to try and accomplish all four theme parks in one day, but we’re dragging around a toddler! Our goal is to visit at least 3 major attractions at each theme park, take a picture in front of the iconic symbol of the park, and try to meet Mickey Mouse at every park. Whew. I’m exhausted just thinking about it!
We’ll start at Hollywood Studios. The attractions we’re hoping to visit here are Toy Story Midway Mania, Rock ‘n’ Roller Coaster, and Tower of Terror. The park opens at 9am and our goal is to leave by 11. Then it’s time to take the boat to Epcot! Here we have FastPass+ reservations for Test Track and Soarin’ (both are tier 1 FastPass+ reservations, however with the toddler in tow we cannot all ride at once, so we’ve split the FastPass+ reservations and will use Rider Swap), Journey into Imagination, and the Character Spot. The goal is to leave by 2:30pm. Next up is Animal Kingdom. We will hopefully have secured a 4th FastPass+ using our My Disney Experience App. We will the Safari, Adventurer’s Outpost, Everest, and one other attraction before leaving by hopefully 6:30pm. Our last and final stop is Magic Kingdom! Here we will see the Main Street Electrical Parade, Wishes Fireworks, ride as many rides as we can and call it a night! The park is open until 1am, but with rope drop the next morning, our goal is to call it quits earlier than that.
So, do you think we can do it? Are we crazy? Too ambitious? Either way, I’m really excited for this 4 Parks 1 Day Challenge!!
