    What day of the week is it best to go to each park (MK, AK, S, E)? Epcot will be closing later than the rest of the parks, is it a good idea to "Hop" over to Epcot for the evenings? And what is the fastest why to get from park to park?

    Hi SueAnn!

    There's no hard and fast rule regarding which park to visit on which day.  It changes from week to week to week.  You have to take in a lot of variables into account in order to come up with a decent prediction.  That said, the good folks over at have done exactly that.  They are famous for their crowd calendar which predicts the crowd level at Walt Disney World on any particular day; they also recommend which parks to visit on which days and which parks to avoid!  I definitely recommend visiting their site; they are also the research team behind "The Unofficial Guide to Walt Disney World".

    With regards to getting from theme park to theme park, the easiest way is to take Disney transportation, typically a bus.  I recommend planning on it taking 40 minutes to go from one park to another park; that includes waiting about 15 minutes for the bus to show up in the first place.  However, the fastest way to get from your hotel to the first theme park is via  car, except for the Magic Kingdom.  Thus if you have your personal car or a rental car, then I recommend driving. 

    Enjoy planning and write back if you have any more questions!
