Whether you have a little time and you want to see all four Walt Disney World theme parks, or you have a lot of time and are just up to the challenge, there are different approaches you can take. Doing four Disney Parks in one day is not something to take lightly. Disney World is a sprawling place, and there is time lost in each journey. Not to mention some of these are multi-day parks. At none of these would you be able to do everything, even if you had a full day. However, this can be a really fun challenge; and a nice overview of each of the Walt Disney World theme parks. So, here is the plan for hopping to all four parks in one day.
How to Do Four Walt Disney World Parks in One Day
The Magic Kingdom
If you are going to do four parks in one day the best place to start is the Magic Kingdom. It opens the earliest and it’s a really good idea to try to get in before opening. You can do that with Extra Magic Hours or Early Morning Magic when they are available, or you can have a breakfast reservation at Crystal Palace. Enjoy the morning until the crowds start building around 10:30 and leave the park.
Take the monorail to the Ticket and Transportation Center. Then transfer to the Epcot monorail. By the time you get to Epcot, the morning rush will have arrived. This is a chance to use being behind schedule to your advantage. World Showcase opens at 11:00 which will free up space in Future World. Also, security is pretty easy to get through at this time of day.
You won’t be able to do a lot of the things each park has to offer when you visit four parks in one day. So, it is good to have a goal in mind that if you reach, you will be happy. A reasonable expectation is two attractions for each hop. When you are satisfied with Future World, after a couple of hours, head back to World Showcase and exit the park to head toward Hollywood Studios. If you can handle the 20-minute walk, it’s better than waiting for the boat to arrive, however, when the Skyliner is finally an option, you should take that.
About 5:00 is a good time to leave Hollywood Studios and go back into World Showcase through the International Gateway, and make your way counterclockwise around the lagoon. This will be a fast trip through all the pavilions, or a slow on with only a couple, but this is also a really good place to be when dinner time comes, because of all the quick service options. Don’t take too long, because you still have to go to the Animal Kingdom.
For your last leg, take a Minnie Van or an Uber to the Animal Kingdom and stay there until closing, which is usually at 8:00.
That’s a long day; but if you are up for an encore, Magic Kingdom may still be open and you might be able to catch the fireworks if you get back quickly.
