Planning a Walt Disney World Parks visit without kids make sure you have a travel agenda. With a super busy travel schedule, I typically can only squeeze in one day at Walt Disney Parks. To optimize our magical experience, I teamed up with WDW Fan Zone Contributor Lottie Ferguson to assist me with park hop plan. With her expertise, King Thrifty and I were able to tackle four parks in one day. We had and amazing time here is the entire agenda on how to enjoy all four Walt Disney Parks in one day the magic was endless.
Tips before you arrive at the gate:
1.Buy park tickets ahead of time.
2.Download My Disney Experience App & link your park tickets, preferably 30 days before your visit.
3.Make lunch reservations at Epcot.
4.Book evening Fast Passes at Hollywood Studios.
5.Check out park hours.
6.Purchase a refillable water bottle with a filter.
The day has arrived…
Start the day at the Magic Kingdom be there by rope drop (park opening) and ride one of the “mountains” Space Mountain, Splash Mountain, Big Thunder Mountain) or Seven Dwarfs Mine Train. Use your My Disney Experience app to check wait times and choose any other combination of rides. Stay in this park no more than three hours, grab a Mickey ice cream bar, churro or turkey leg and take a picture in front of the castle on your way out.
Upon exit, take the Monorail to the Transportation and Ticket Center (TTC). Early in the day, the Express Monorail will have a shorter line. Switch Monorail trains at the TTC and goes to Epcot. Ride Soarin, check out the World Showcase, eat lunch there (reservations, yay!). Spend no more than three hours here, but be sure to ride Spaceship Earth and take a picture in front before leaving.
Grab a bus and head to the Animal Kingdom. Once yu arrive head to the Ride Kilimanjaro Safari then stop by Tamu Tamu Refreshments for a Dole Whip this location serves them with or without rum. Use the single rider line and have a blast on Expedition Everest. Check out some of the animal trails then take a break and enjoy the Festival of the Lion King. There are a few great counter service dining options here; Flame Tree Barbecue is the most popular. Eat a quick dinner, then take a picture in front of the Tree of Life before exiting. Visit this park no longer than 3 hours, leaving a minimum of one hour before park closing to avoid traffic.
Hop back on a bus and ride to Hollywood Studios. Use the Fast Passes you booked for Toy Story Midway Mania or Rockin Roller Coaster, and Tower of Terror. Ride Star Tours and anything else time allows, but if your timing is right, two and a half hours in this park will be exactly what you need to take a bus back to the Magic Kingdom for Wishes or a boat ride back to Epcot just in time for Illuminations.
This plan is only good with the current 2017 parks schedule which may change at any time. Please let me know how your day goes I hope it’s filled with magic.
