    Debora Asked

    I am going to have approximately 24 hours at WDW with my 10 year old grandson. We are staying at Animal Kingdom Lodge and will have Park Hopper tickets. Any suggestions of how to make the most out of our short time at the Park?

    Hi Debora!
    I guess the easiest thing to do is ask your grandson to create a Top 5 or Top 10 must-do list of either parks or attractions, and then attack that list with gusto. Walt Disney World is huge and the four theme parks are just the tip of the iceberg. You do not want to spend any more of that 24 hours in lines for transportation to park hop than you need to. Also, you don't mention when you are gonig so I wasn't able to check park operating hours, which will have an impact on your itinerary as well.
    One idea, if your grandson is into thrill rides, would be to try to conquer all of the Magic Kingdom mountains (Space, Thunder and Splash) and then maybe hope to one of the other parks to do its thrill rides...like Tower of Terror and Rockin Rollercoaster at Disney's Hollywood Studios, for example.
    What I wouldn't recommend is trying to do too much park hopping as it will eat up a great deal of that 24 hours waiting.
    I hope you and your grandson have a Magical time together!! :)
