    We are going in March and only have 2 day park hopper. One day MK and the other AK and that night Hollywood Studios. How long does it take to do AK? Hollywood studios is open till midnight the day we are going. So I want to be able to enjoy both parks.

    Hi Marci,

    I can totally understand you wanting to pack as much in as possible during your 2 day visit in March.

    In order to get the most out of your time at the two theme parks, here's what I would suggest:-

    1/ Prior to your arrival at Walt Disney World, make FastPass+ selections for 3 must-do attractions at Disney's Hollywood Studios (from say 5pm onwards) for the day of your visit. If you are unsure, I would suggest perhaps choosing Rock 'n' Roller Coaster Starring Aerosmith, The Twilight Zone Tower of Terror and Star Tours 2: The Adventures Continue.
    2/ Plan to arrive at Disney's Animal Kingdom prior to park opening so that you will be able to enter the theme park at rope drop.
    3/ Hit the major rides like Kilimanjaro Safaris, Expedition Everest and DINOSAUR straight away whilst the standby wait times are still low. 
    4/ Catch one of the brilliant Broadway style shows - Festival of the Lion King or Finding Nemo - The Musical.
    5/ Grab some lunch and have a stroll around the Discovery Island Trails which go around the truly amazing Tree of Life, Pangani Forest Exploration Trail or Maharajah Jungle Trek.
    6/ Experience any other attractions or entertainment which you really want to see before heading out of the park at around 4pm.

    Once you arrive at Disney's Hollywood Studios, take in as many attractions/experiences as you can around your FastPass+ reservations and whatever you do, don't miss Fantasmic!, it's one of my favourite things to watch.

    Wishing you a magical trip filled with memories which will last a lifetime!
