    We have a two day hopper pass and plan to visit 4 parks in two days. First day (morning - Animal Kingdom then after/evening-Magic Kingdom. Day two (morn-Hollywood Studio then after/even Epcot). Is this wise choice? MK and Epcot have evening fireworks?

    Hi Miriam!

    Thank you for sending in your question to the Walt Disney World Moms Panel.

    That will be a busy two days!  The Magic Kingdom has a lot to offer guests of all ages.  It is the crown jewel of Walt Disney World and, in my opinion, of the entire theme park industry.  You can also get more done in the first couple of hours in the Magic Kingdom than you can later in the day with more time.  Thus being at the Magic Kingdom at park opening is a big plus.

    I recommend going to the Magic Kingdom first in the morning, then switching to Disney's Animal Kingdom at lunch time.  Then stay in Disney's Animal Kingdom until the evening and then hop back to the Magic Kingdom.

    For Hollywood Studios and Epcot, it's a hard decision.  If you want to experience Toy Story Midway Mania in the Studios with minimum wait then you need to be there first thing in the morning.  Likewise, if you want to experience Soarin'' in Epcot with minimal wait then you need to be there first thing!  I would base the decision on whether you want to see Illuminations or Fantasmic!  Illuminations is a guest favorite, though I personally enjoy Fantasmic over Illuminations.  Both are fabulous.  Once you know which nighttime spectacular you want to enjoy then visit the other park in the morning.

    I hope this helps!  Please write back with more questions!
