How to do four Disney parks in one day

It is possible my friends.

Two weeks ago, my friends and I took a day trip to Orlando. The tickets for all 4 parks in one day was not pricey at all! It’s pretty worth it.. well… if you’re in the mood for a hectic day running around and trying to take everything in at once.

We clearly took up the challenge and did it.

This was our park order:

  1. Animal Kingdom
  2. Hollywood Studios
  3. Epcot
  4. Magic Kingdom

We wanted to do Animal Kingdom first because we wanted to check out the new Avatar side and we made the right choice…. it was 8 a.m. and there was already about a 2 hour wait line. I totally recommend the Flight of Passage ride, the graphics were beautiful. We also rode the Avatar river journey and Expedition Everest. The lines weren’t that bad. I do plan on visiting Animal Kingdom again, it was my first time there and didn’t get to explore much since we were in a hurry.

Then we went to Hollywood Studios, my first time visiting too. There wasn’t much except two crazy rides… and if you know me … you know I don’t like heights… or crazy rides… but I was seeking some adrenaline rush and went for it. WOOHOOO! You can check out my face on the rides in the video below lol. We rode Rock ‘n’ Roller Coaster and Tower of Terror, along with a new Toy Story ride.

Epcot, we left it for the afternoon so we could have dinner there. We mainly picked bites in different countries and rode one ride. I do advice not to visit Epcot so late in the day, at night it was hard to see lol…. they need to add some lights.

At 7ish we were heading to Magic Kingdom to watch the fireworks. We actually made it too late to be able to ride anything, but the girls and I have been there over 3764 times so it didn’t matter much. The fireworks were beautiful.

In general it was a nice and successful day with great company!

Here are a few tips if you plan on doing 4 parks in one day in the near future:

  1. Prioritize- make a note of what you really want to see/ do or ride
  2. Plan out the order of the parks
  3. Determine how long you’ll need to be at each park
  4. Pick your FASTPASSES ….. in advance… not 2 days before (we made that mistake)!
  5. Download the Disney Experience app, very helpful for maps and fastpass
  6. Wear comfy clothes!
