    Hello! We are planning to visit Disneyworld on the afternoon of July 18 and whole day July 19. We would like to visit the Magic Kingdom (and see fireworks), EPCOT and Hollywood Studios. What park ticket would you recommend?

    Hey there Judith and welcome to planDisney!

    You sound like you're planning a pretty action-packed schedule for your visit to the Walt Disney World Resort. We love it! To really maximize your time in the Disney Parks, I would suggest purchasing Tickets with the Park Hopper Option. Currently, you can make a Theme Park Reservation for your first park of the day using the Disney Park Pass System. At 2 p.m. you can hop to your next park as long as they aren't at capacity. I would also advise you to purchase Disney Genie+ Service to help you plan your day and to take advantage of the Lightning Lane feature. Less time in line and more time making magic! If I were you, this would be my strategy for a 1 1/2 day magic - a - thon. 

    July 18: Go to Magic Kingdom Park. You can get some classic rides in like Big Thunder Mountain Railroad and Pirates of the Caribbean and take some pics with our favorite royal girls over at Princess Fairytale Hall. You can grab a sweet and spicy chicken waffle sandwich from Sleepy Hollow and camp out for a spot in front of Cinderella Castle to catch Disney Enchantment as it lights up the night sky. Then hoof it back to your Disney Resorts Collection hotel or other accommodations because you need your beauty rest for a very full day tomorrow.

    July 19: Start off at Disney's Hollywood Studios. You don't want to miss Rise of the Resistance over in Star Wars: Galaxy's Edge or Slinky Dog Dash over in Toy Story Land. Both of them are more effective than a cup of coffee in the morning. Speaking of coffee, grab a cup from The Trolley Car Cafe to keep you fueled up for your next destination. Hop on a water taxi to EPCOT. The boat will drop you off in the heart of The World Showcase. Visit the France Pavillion to see the grandeur of Paris from a petit perspective on Remy's Ratatouille Adventure. While the dates haven't been released for this year just yet, in recent years your dates have coincided with the first few days of the EPCOT International Food & Wine Festival. Eat and drink your way around the world at as many food booths as your stomach can handle and then get ready for a treat! Watch Harmonious, the brilliant new nighttime spectacular.

    Judith, you've only got a day and a half, you can sleep when you get home! Come back for another chat if you have any more questions!

    Happy planning!
