    We are going to be in Florida for 3 days on April 13, 14,15th. We want to see all four them parks in 3 days. Where should we start first to be able to have enought time to get to see all 4 parks in 3 days?

    Hi, Angela!  You are going at a time of  year crowded due to spring break, so you will probably only get to see an abbreviated version of each park, but with some careful planning, you can hit the major highlights! 

    My advice would be to tackle Animal Kingdom as soon as they open.  Grab Fast Passes for either Kali River Rapids, the Kilimanjaro Safari, or Expedition Everest.  You are going to be waiting in the longest lines for these rides, so if you get a fast pass for at least one, that lets you go wait in line for one of the others.  As soon as you can get a second fast pass, do that before you get on the ride you have the fast pass for.  For example, if you have Fast Passed the safari ride and your time to come back is 10 AM, at 10 AM, you can get another fast pass.  Do that before you ride the safari.  Not to miss - Festival of the Lion King and It's Tough to Be a Bug - if you can squeeze them in.

    After half day there, head to Disney's Hollywood Studios.  You may find all of the fast passes for Toy Story Midway Mania have been given out, and that might be the attraction you have to wait in line for.  Hit one of the other Fast Pass attractions that you want to do so you have the passes in hand, and then go do and see as much as you can while you wait for that Fast Pass time to come up.

    You need full days at the Magic Kingdom and EPCOT, but use the Fast Pass system again - I can't tell you how beneficial it will be to you in terms of saving you time!
