    Crazy ? We are used to Land...everything in 1-2 parks. Only coming to World for 1 day this time. Going 2 MK. Hubby wants LeCellier, son Indiana Jones, daughter Toy Story Mania. Crazy to get hopper and try to do all of this in one day? LOVE panel! Thanks!

    Hello, Jill!

    I would never call anyone's Disney Dreams crazy, especially if the goals are possible...although jam-packed!

    If you all truly have your hearts set on all you've mentioned above, you can do it as long as your family embraces this as an adventure.

    I'll use today's park hours as an example. For Toy Story Mania at Disney's Hollywood Studios, you need to be there as close to park open as possible. While I'm writing this, HS has been open for 30 minutes, and Toy Story Mania! wait time is 35 minutes; wait and ride. Indiana Jones Epic Stunt Spectacular is  at 10:15 and 11:30 (check the Times Guide). Get to the first show that you can, even if you'll be walking in just a minute before showtime.  Two down.

    Hollywood Studios and Epcot are on either side of a collection of resorts (Disney's Boardwalk Inn, Disney's Beach Club, Disney's Yacht Club) all of which are connected to each other via boat, bus and walkways. You could walk, ferry or bus 1/2 or all the way from one park to a resort and continue on to the other park.

    Head in through Epcot's "back door" (International Gateway) turning left at World Showcase Lagoon. Canada will be the second country on your left. Be sure to have reserved a table ASAP for that afternoon; I would say 2 p.m. would be the earliest you should book a table.  After lunch, head out the main entrance of Epcot, boarding a monorail for the Transportation and Ticketing Center. There, transfer to the Magic Kingdom monorail and you're off to Magic Kingdom Park!

    Send me the exact date you're trying to accomplish this feat and if you're staying at a Walt Disney World resort (which gives access to Extra Magic Hours) as well as if your party is more likely to walk or ride between parks. I can then be a little more specific with your plan.

    This is a big dream, but it can work!
