    Can you ride all rides at the parks getting in at 11:30 am

    Welcome to planDisney, Yasmine! Thanks so much for sending us your question about visiting the Walt Disney World Resort!

    There are so many ways to approach spending the day at the theme parks. I usually find that the earlier you get to the parks, the more attractions you’re able to enjoy. But you can also get to lots of the attractions if you stay until the park closes. My husband loves watching fireworks shows, so we try to catch at least a few during our visits. I don’t mind missing the fireworks shows and I feel like you can enjoy shorter wait times in the queues for attractions during the shows. 

    One of my favorite things to do at the Magic Kingdom Park at night is ride Big Thunder Mountain Railroad during the fireworks shows! It’s so beautiful to see the night sky lit up when you’re enjoying the wildest ride in the wilderness!

    For parks like EPCOT and Disney’s Animal Kingdom Park, I think you can tackle all if not most of the attractions in one day. For Magic Kingdom Park and Disney’s Hollywood Studios, you may need an extra day to get to every single attraction, because of the wait times in the queues. 

    Yasmine, this has been my experience and there are so many shows, attractions and things to eat and explore at the parks, there’s no right way to do it all. I suggest taking a look at the park maps on your My Disney Experience app to see what your family wants to enjoy during your vacation and go from there. 

    I hope I’ve been helpful. If you have any other planning questions you can always visit us here or at planDisney en Español. ¡Siempre es nuestro placer ayudarte con todos los detalles de tus planes!

    ¡Hasta pronto!
