    I am buying a 2 day park hopper ticket. Which parks would you suggest to do on the same day?

    Hi, Edith!

    You can squeeze a lot of magic into 2 days, so have fun with your hopper ticket and go for it! Your decision on which parks to visit might vary depending on Extra Magic Hours, regular park hours, or any dining reservations you might have, but without knowing your details here is what I would do:

    Day 1: Get to Disney Hollywood Studios at park opening. Get in as many attractions as possible without using any of your FastPass+ selections. Head out by lunch time and head to Magic Kingdom for the rest of the day. Have your FastPass+ selected for this park.

    Day 2: Start your day early at Epcot. Head to Frozen, Soarin', then single rider line for Test Track. Do this without FastPass+. Mid-day, head to Disney's Animal Kingdom where you should have your FastPass+ selections booked and waiting.

    To maximize time, try to stick to Quick Service dining, and make sure to be at the parks prior to opening. The earlier start you get, the better. Make sure to have the Disney Parks app downloaded on your smart phone so you can book/adjust your FastPass+ selections and keep an eye on wait times.  My son and I just did this a few weeks ago, and even got in a bit of pool time between parks. Whew, I'm tired thinking about it, but boy did we have fun!

    Enjoy your 2 day Disney extravaganza!
