    Hello Everyone, Accomplish 4 parks in 1 day. End at Magic Kingdome, for fireworks (where to see from). Where to start/park - what are musts, suggested transportation (I would like to use all for the experience), and most important - where to eat. Thanks

    Hi Svetlana!

    Wow, I will try to answer as many questions as I am able to in space allowed.

    Start your day at the park with Extra Magic Hours if possible and if not then start with the Animal Kingdom park. You will want to be there early of have FastPass+ for the new Pandora attractions especially Flights of Wonder. Other musts here include the Safari, Expedition Everest, and Dinosaur.

    Then head to Hollywood Studios for Tower of Terror, Rock n Roller Coaster, Toy Story Mania, Star Tours, and possibly Muppet Vision and the Star Wars meet and greets.

    From there head to Epcot. Epcot musts include Test Track, Soarin, Frozen, Spaceship Earth, and possibly Mission Space and American Adventure.

    Your last park will be the Magic Kingdom where you will need to see what time you have to enjoy the attractions. My favorites include Thunder Mountain, Space Mountain, Splash Mountain, Pirates, Jungle Cruise, Haunted Mansion, and yes I do love Its a Small World! Best views of fireworks are in the castle hub but that is also the most crowded so be aware of that.

    When you park hop in one day you will need to eat at quick service locations to save time. Here are my favorites in each park.
    Animal Kingdom: Flametree Barbecue
    Hollywood Studios: ABC Commissary
    Epcot: Mexico
    Magic Kingdom: Columbia Harbour House

    For quick and easy transportation between parks check out the Disney parks Express Transportation Option. This will be bus service from backstage of each park that takes you into the parks and you avoid the lines for security again and again. There is an extra cost for this option.
