    We only have two days to visit but chose the Park Hopper option.. do you have any tips on how to set our itinerary up so we can experience as much as possible?

    Dear Jillian,

    Thanks so much for visiting us again here at the Disney Parks Moms Panel with your question about your planning and ticketing!

    You have given yourself a challenge but I know that you will have an awesome time even with the short time frame! Park Hopping is definitely a terrific idea, and may I also recommend the Express Transportation option. It's a bit of an expense but in my opinion well worth it if you are limited on time! Walt Disney World Resort buses take you behind the scenes from park to park, so that you bypass additional security and ticketing waits at the parks. 

    Your plan depends heavily on your interests, but if you want to see all four parks, I would split them into two parks on each of the two days. You will have to decide which nighttime shows you would like to see, and that might help determine which parks you do in the early hours and which in the later hours. If you would like to spend one evening at the Magic Kingdom for example, perhaps you would start the day at Disney's Animal Kingdom in the morning. Get there before the park opens so that you can be there and ready to go right in when it does. On your second day, you could choose to spend the early hours at Epcot and then the later part of the day at Disney's Hollywood Studios! Again, I would arrive early and maximize your visit!

    You might know that you can choose FastPass+ selections ahead of time from only one park per day, so that would be another factor in how you would set up your visit. If there are any attractions that are a "must do" for you, you should arrange your schedule around those. 

    As you can see, there are many ways to approach this! Have a magical time planning!
