    I have only one day to spend at WDW with my two boys (ages 9 and 11) so I arranged a VIP tour. What’s the best way to catch the main attractions at all 4 parks in one day?

    Boy, oh boy, Michelle!

    Well, this will be a day that you and your charming little princes will remember forever! Four parks in one day will be the ultimate hustle, but with your trusty VIP guide, I know you and your boys are up for the challenge and will earn your Walt Disney World ears!
    Let’s start at Disney’s Animal Kingdom Theme Park. A perk of starting here is that it will be the coldest part of your day, so consider the Florida heat as you plan your afternoon. I'd begin with Kilimanjaro Safaris, where you can witness the animals' morning activity as the sun rises! If you can, try to squeeze in the Festival of the Lion King show.

    Other must-visit attractions at this park include:

    • Avatar Flight of Passage
    • Na’vi River Journey
    • Expedition Everest - Legend of the Forbidden Mountain

    Next, make your way to Disney’s Hollywood Studios to enjoy the following:

    • Rock 'n' Roller Coaster Starring Aerosmith 
    • Slinky Dog Dash
    • The original version of Mickey & Minnie’s Runaway Railway
    • Squeeze in the Indiana Jones™ Epic Stunt Spectacular! if you think there's time.

    Now Michelle, since you mentioned in your previous questions that you and your family frequent the Disneyland Resort, I'm skipping some classic rides that you might already be familiar with, like Star Wars: Rise of the Resistance, Millennium Falcon: Smugglers Run, and The Twilight Zone Tower of Terror™. But it's up to you and the boys to decide if you're interested in these attractions on the day of your visit.

    Zoom on over to EPCOT for attractions that you are all sure to love:

    Now call me a princess, Michelle, but my favorite EPCOT ride was Frozen Ever After. But you don’t have to take my word for it.

    Finally, end your day with the resort's crown jewel: Magic Kingdom.
    The newest Disney thrill: TRON Lightcycle / Run, will be a great use of your VIP tour privileges! Other can’t-miss attractions include:

    • Haunted Mansion
    • Pirates of the Caribbean (they’re different! I swear!)
    • Seven Dwarfs Mine Train
    • And what better way to end the day than with a spectacular fireworks show!

    Whew! Michelle, I’m out of breath just typing all of this, so I wish you the best of luck on your epic day with your little Chip & Dale. To say it will be an unforgettable day is an understatement, so I can't wait to hear about your other plans too! So don’t hesitate to send me another message if you’re looking for more tips.

    You’ve got a friend in me!
