    With a 3 day park hopper is that enough time to see WDW and Hollywood studios

    Hey there, Stephen!

    Thanks so much for bringing us your question! Each of us here on the planDisney Panel does a bit of a happy dance any chance we get to help Guests like you by sharing our own vacation experiences at Walt Disney World Resort.

    Over the years I've done visits to Walt Disney World Resort ranging from one-day to 10-days and just about everything in between, and I always end my trips feeling like there was more to see, do, and enjoy then there was time in my schedule. 

    In my view -- and keep in mind this is only my view -- I think a 3-Day Ticket with Park Hopper Option can be your ticket to the magic at Walt Disney World Resort if you choose what you'd like to most experience. I always encourage at least a four-to-five day visit to take in all the theme parks and Disney Springs, and perhaps build in time for enjoying your Walt Disney World Resort hotel and maybe even some water park fun. With three days to work with, the big question for you will be how to choose what to include in your plan?

    My suggestion is to start with the Tickets & Visit Guide to get a great overview of the "something for everyone" attractions at the theme parks. Then I'd suggest spending some time with my fellow panelists watching their tips and tours in the planDisney Video Library. I'd also imagine my theme park days by touring the parks with the online guide maps: the Magic Kingdom Guide Map, the EPCOT Guide Map, the Disney's Hollywood Studios Guide Map, and the Disney's Animal Kingdom Guide Map. I think these planning resources can help you quickly get familiar with all that's available to enjoy so you can plan your park hopping days.

    If I were planning my own three-day stay, I think I'd play out my days with my favorite must-do experiences. As a Star Wars fan, I'd be sure not to miss Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge at Disney's Hollywood Studios. As a Disney classics enthusiast, I'd be sure to spend ample time in Magic Kingdom Park (especially on Space Mountain!). As a wannabe awestruck explorer, I'd want to immerse myself in Pandora – The World of Avatar at 
    Disney's Animal Kingdom Theme Park and take flight on my own mountain banshee at Avatar Flight of Passage. I'd start a theme park day in each of these parks, and plan to park hop over to EPCOT where I'd celebrate The American Adventure, travel on Spaceship Earth, and go Soarin' Around the World. I'd also sample the delicious food offerings as I stroll the EPCOT World Showcase. 

    The key step to building your three-day plan is to start with the Theme Park Reservation Availability calendar and then make your theme park reservations with the Disney Park Pass system.

    Stephen, I hope this gives you a few great ideas for planning your your three days of magic!

Meet the Panelist: Jerry, Pennsylvania

The playful and creative optimism of all things Disney has enthralled me since I was a kid. I loved watching "The Wonderful World of Disney" on Sunday nights, seeing all the live-action and animated classics in theaters, and — of course — visiting "The Most Magical Place on Earth" for the first time 45 years ago. These days, the big kid in me still loves to play Disney. As a long-time Disney destinations vacationer, I'm looking forward to helping you play Disney starting here at planDisney!
