The Master Plan: Strategizing for Success
To conquer the colossal task of visiting all four Disney World parks in a single day, a well-thought-out strategy is essential. Our game plan? Utilize all Genie+ has to offer, including purchasing individual Lightning Lanes, take advantage of Early Park Admission by staying at one of Disney’s Resorts, and wear the most comfortable shoes for the longest Disney day ever.
Our day kicks off at 6:00 am at All Star Sports Resort, where we purchase Genie+ for the day ($25). After a quick outfit change and sunscreen application, we catch the bus to our first park—Animal Kingdom—at 6:45 am.
Park #1: Animal Kingdom – Embracing Nature’s Wonders
Our adventure begins at Animal Kingdom, where the majestic Tree of Life welcomes us into a world of wildlife and excitement. Our first priority is the exhilarating Avatar Flight of Passage, swiftly conquering the standby line early in the day. By 7:25 am, we’ve experienced one of our top three favorite attractions.
The morning continues with Kilimanjaro Safari, offering a perfect opportunity to witness active animals. After a delicious breakfast, we explore Gorilla Falls Expedition Trails, capturing stunning photos. A leisurely stroll along the Discovery Island trails leads us to the iconic Tree of Life, where we capture a picture-perfect moment before bidding farewell to Animal Kingdom at 10:30 am.
Park #2: Hollywood Studios – Lights, Camera, Action!
Our journey continues at Hollywood Studios, where the glitz and glamor of showbiz beckon. By 11:00 am, we’re making our next Genie+ selection, opting for Smugglers Run at 1:00 pm. Before that, we indulge in an adult frozen lemonade from Herbie’s Drive In and explore Toy Story Land and Galaxy’s Edge.
Immersing ourselves in the preshow for Rise of the Resistance at 11:20 am, we explore Batu, encountering space crafts and an unexpected meeting with Chewbacca. After a feast at Docking Bay 7, we venture on thrilling journeys with Star Tours and Oga’s Cantina, exiting the park at 3:00 pm.
Park #3: Epcot – A Voyage Around the World
The journey to Epcot aboard the Skyliner proves enjoyable, offering panoramic views as we glide through the skies. Arriving at Epcot around 3:30 pm, we dive into the heart of the action with Remy’s Ratatouille Adventure and explore World Showcase, sampling treats and delighting in the Festival of the Arts.
Our evening includes soaring above California landscapes on Soarin’ at 5:30 pm and securing another Genie+ reservation for Magic Kingdom. The illuminated trail at The Journey of Water, against the backdrop of Spaceship Earth, captivates us as we bid farewell to Epcot.
Park #4: Magic Kingdom – Where Dreams Come True
As night descends, we board the monorail for Magic Kingdom. Stepping in at 7:25 pm, our first stop is Tron, securing the Individual Lightning Lane earlier that morning. The night unfolds with rides on Space Mountain, Big Thunder Mountain, Pirates of the Caribbean, and a second exhilarating journey on Tron.
By 10:22 pm, our resort bus arrives, marking the ideal end to an unforgettable day filled with Disney magic and cherished memories.
