    Erin from ON Asked

    Hi, I have a 1-day hopper with my family. Children are 12(girl) and 8(boy, 1st visit). My son is excited for star tours ride at HS. Our plan is to cover 3 of the theme parks. Can you please give suggestions on fastpass and what to visit at AK,MK & HS?

    Erin-

    Get your roller skates on because you will need them to maneuver nimbly through the parks.  I’m getting a rush just thinking about this challenge for your family.  Since I don’t know when you are going, I would look at crowd calendars on touringplans.com or undercovertourist.com for lower attendance days. I’m giving you the plan I would do with my 11-year and 7-year old sons. So grab your 1-day Magic Your Way Tickets with a park hopper and let’s do it!

    For my morning, I would start my day at Disney’s Hollywood Studios. Head to Toy Story Midway Mania which will test your shootin’ skills then to Star Tours where you race through scenes of the Star Wars Universe. Next, choose either The Hollywood Tower of Terror or Rock-N-Roller Coaster. If you can do both, then you are doing great! On the way out at 11:30am grab a bite to eat.

    Arrive at Disney’s Animal Kingdom by 12:30pm.  On the way, have your daughter check the wait times on the My Disney Experience app and make a bee-line for one of the following: Expedition Everest to see the Yeti, the Kali River Rapids, or Dinosaur. You’ll have a roaring time!

    Arrive at the Magic Kingdom Park by 3:00pm. Make all your FastPass+ reservations at the Magic Kingdom Park for Space Mountain, Big Thunder Mountain Railroad, Splash Mountain, or The Seven Dwarfs Mine Train. Visit my 999 happily haunting friends at the Haunted Mansion and avoid canon fire in the Pirates of the Caribbean attractions. Ending your day here gives you fireworks, parades and more. Don’t worry about food. It is everywhere including pizza, pretzels, Mickey Premium Ice Cream Bars and turkey legs as big as your head … well close. This is a day that will never be forgotten.

    Enjoy making many Magical Memories!
