    Unfortunately my 18 year daughter and I only have one day to spend at disney. She wants to see Magic KIngdom and Animal Kingdom. I have bought a one day park hopper pass. Any suggestions on how to see as much as we can. Thanks

    Hi William!
    Wow, it is so awesome that you and your daughter will get to spend a full day together in Walt Disney World! The two Walt Disney World theme parks, the Magic Kingdom Park and Disney's Animal Kingdom that you have chosen to visit in one day are both amazing in their own right!  My suggestion to maximize your time in both parks is to look at the park hours for both the Magic Kingdom Park and Disney's Animal Kingdom for the particular day that you plan to be in Walt Disney World by looking up the date on the Walt Disney World calendar. I would recommend that the first park that you visit is the one that is open at the earliest time of day on that particular day and make the second park of the day the park that is open the latest (typically the Magic Kingdom Park will be open the latest over Disney's Animal Kingdom but that has been changing since Disney's Animal Kingdom has added Pandora - The World of Avatar which is totally spectacular at night).  Also I would setup your three FastPass+ reservations for early in the day at the first theme park that you plan to visit on that particular day. This will help you save time and experience more attractions on your special day with your daughter.  I hope that you make amazing memories with your daughter on your Walt Disney World day!

    Keep Dreaming Big!
