    Hi this will be my first time at Disney! We are going to spend all day there ! What kind of passes should we get and what time should we get there if we are not staying in a hotel at Disney! Also are we allowed to bring a side purse or something like that?

    Hey Joe!  So nice to hear from you.

    If you're an energetic person who isn't afraid of squeezing tons of magic into one day, I'd suggest purchasing a 1-Day Park Hopper Ticket.  This will allow you to visit more than one park.  A base ticket will only allow entry to one park.

    Since you're limited on time, I recommend beginning your day at the Magic Kingdom and be sure to arrive super early... at least 45 minutes prior to park opening if you need to buy your tickets there.  This way you'll be right at the front of the pack when the gates open.  Have a plan before you arrive and spend the morning and mid-afternoon hitting up the attractions that most interest you and then, hop aboard the monorail for a quick ride to Epcot to finish out your day.

    I wouldn't suggest trying to visit more than two parks in one day.  Limiting yourself to two will give you time to really appreciate and experience both parks that you choose!  I suggest Epcot, since it's accessible by monorail!  

    And yes, you can certainly bring a side purse into the parks with you!  I usually carry a big back pack with no issue, and sometimes even a small cooler!

    Best Wishes,
