Ultimate Four Parks in One Day
The story of how two roommates conquered four parks in one day before 4pm.

One picture in front of a Christmas tree
One picture with a magic shot
Get to Animal Kingdom for rope drop around 8:30am and get to Expedition Everest as soon as park opens to avoid lines.
Pro Tip you can get your Photopass done before the park actually opens
Finish your DAK checklist within the hour and head towards the bus station around 10am.
Take a bus to Magic Kingdom and get your photos during the friendship castle show to check off a few boxes at once.
Pro Tip mobile order your food ahead at each park to minimize wait times
Take the monorail to Epcot around 1pm and grab some festival foods depending on what season you are visiting during. There will also be several performances around the World Showcase for your show. During our adventure, we discovered that Epcot did not yet have a Christmas Tree so we had to improvise with a regular tree.
Pro Tip get to the character meet and greets at the posted time on My Disney Experience to minimize wait time
Finally take the Skyliner over to Hollywood Studios around 4pm and you've made it! Since HS has the longest lines, you need to give yourself lots of time at the end of the day here.
Pro Tip the single rider line for Rockin' Roller Coaster is usually just as long as standby
Now that you've made it to all four parks before 4pm you can relax and watch the fireworks over the Chinese Theater!
