    Welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel, Renee! It sounds like you are wanting to try your hand at the 4 Parks, 1 Day Challenge! I was able to complete the extreme Park Hop earlier in 2017 with plenty of room to spare. I flew in with an early flight, and headed to the Park closest to my Hotel to start my adventure.

    While the Express Transportation from Park to Park helped me complete my feat, that mode of transport has been discontinued in favor of the new Minnie Vans. You’ll save oodles of time by using Minnie Vans smartly between three of the Parks so you can cram in more attractions. I’d start at Disney's Animal Kingdom Park, just as you planned, venturing to Disney’s Hollywood Studios, Epcot, and finishing at Magic Kingdom. You’ll want to plan your first two FastPass+ reservations for early in the morning at Disney’s Animal Kingdom, and then when they are complete, hop on the app and create another FP+ near your next destination. Being smart with planning ahead will pay dividends. Choose your preferred attractions beforehand, with a “backup” attraction in case lines are quite long and time is short. Also, should you be in the Parks for a meal, be sure to utilize Mobile Order inside the My Disney Experience Mobile App. Skip the line and order in advance to save time and frustration. You’ll be the Belle of the ball waltzing up to the pickup window and noshing immediately! These tips combined should make your 4 Parks, 1 Day Challenge a success!

    If we can be of further help to streamline your vacation, please let us know. You’ve got a friend in me! ~ Lindsey P.
