    I am an Annual PH and want to do 4 parks/day for my bday (on a Saturday). I planned to start @ AK so that's where I did our reservation, but does that mean we can't park hop to Magic Kingdom at all since it is subject to availability on a weekend?

    Hiya, Leah! I'm so happy to see you back at planDisney, getting ready for an epic adventure. A four-park challenge sounds like the perfect way to celebrate your birthday!

    With an Annual Pass and a reservation for Disney's Animal Kingdom Theme Park, you have all the bases covered to get your day started. Once you have visited Animal Kingdom, you are welcome to park hop to any other theme park, including Magic Kingdom Park. Entry to any theme park is always subject to capacity. It is possible, but unless you are going between Christmas and New Year's Day, the risk of a park hitting its capacity is usually not too great. You should get a notification in the My Disney Experience App if a park has to limit entry.

    As you plan your park strategy, you can check the Hours & Events Calendar to see if any park stays open later than the others. Park hours vary, so it's always helpful to check.

    Do you have any particular aspirations for each park? Some people set their own challenge qualifiers, like one thrill attraction, a snack, or an iconic photo in each park. If you are aiming for attractions, Genie+ with the multiple park option will be your friend. For food, mobile food ordering saves so much time. And it is available in many snack locations, like Karamell-Küche in EPCOT, Kat Saka's Kettle in Disney's Hollywood Studios and Zuri's Sweets Shop in Animal Kingdom. I like making my selections while standing in a line so my order is ready to submit when I arrive.

    I hope you have a magical birthday at Walt Disney World Resort! Be sure to get a Celebration Pin to mark your birthday and the four-park challenge. If you have any other questions as you plan your day, please stop back by planDisney. You've got a friend in us!

    Happy Birthday!
