    Can you recommend an itnerary w/ a focus on thrill rides at three parks in one day, plus provide advice on how best to use purchase of Genie+ and/or LLs. My current thinking of order is 1) Animal Kingdom; 2) Hollywood; 3) Magic Kingdom.

    Hey howdy hey, Alban, and welcome to planDisney! It sounds like you're gearing up for an exciting and busy day at the Disney Theme Parks! It's a good rule of thumb to start the day at the park that opens first, and end the day at the park that closes last, while remembering that park hours can change from day to day, sometimes without notice.

    If you are a Disney Resorts Collection Hotel guest, you'll have access to Early Theme Park Entry, which gives you a 30-minute head start before the official park opening time. I recommend arriving at the park well before that 30-minute head start, to ensure you're at the front of the line. You'll want to purchase Disney Genie+ Service before 7:00am for all of the theme parks. If you're a Disney Resorts Collection Hotel guest, you'll also have the ability to purchase Individual Lightning Lanes at 7:00am (otherwise you'll wait to purchase until the park opens). You'll also make your first Genie+ selection at 7:00am. It's a busy time, so I recommend drinking your coffee well in advance!

    You might consider purchasing an Individual Lightning Lane for Star Wars: Rise of the Resistance and TRON: Lightcycle / Run. I'd go ahead and book a Genie+ Lightning Lane selection for Slinky Dog Dash.

    If you start at Disney's Animal Kingdom Theme Park, you can head straight for Avatar Flight of Passage and then to Expedition Everest - Legend of the Forbidden Mountain. Then ride DINOSAUR, which might be one of my favorites in all of Walt Disney World Resort! When it's time to make another Genie+ selection, consider an attraction at Disney's Hollywood Studios.

    When you get to Hollywood Studios, head to The Twilight Zone Tower of Terror for one of the most thrilling experiences you'll have all day! Hopefully, you can go ahead and use your Slinky Dog Dash Lightning Lane and Rise of the Resistance Individual Lightning Lane. I also find Mickey & Minnie's Runaway Railway to be exhilarating! As you're able, continue to book Genie+ selections, and consider attractions at Magic Kingdom Park for later in the day.

    At Magic Kingdom Park, you can't miss Big Thunder Mountain Railroad and Space Mountain. Seven Dwarfs Mine Train is also a really fun ride, though not as thrilling as the others, in my opinion. I think Pirates of the Caribbean can be a little thrilling, too!

    Best of luck to you! I hope you have the thrilling day of your dreams!

    See you real soon!
