    Doing all four parks in one day just for chucks?



    Just suggested to my DH that we should do all four parks just because and he said "what a waste of time" PBBBT!

    So has anybody done it? What rides did you do?how would you do it?

    Re: Doing all four parks in one day just for chucks?

    What an interesting question.

    I'm not sure I would ever do it, but it might be fun to try!

    I'd do it in this order - AK -> HS -> EP -> MK, and I'd pick a day when MK has EM hours at night.

    AK
    9a - Breakfast at Tuskers
    10a - Snag a fast pass for Everest
    10:30a - Ride the Safari
    11:30a - Ride Dinosaur or Everest (depending on time for Everest)
    12:00p - Ride Dinosaur or Everest (depending on time for Everest)
    12:30p - Grab a bus to Hollywood Studios

    HS
    1p - Grab a fast pass for ToT and ride Rockin' Roller Coaster
    2p - Ride Star Tours
    3p - Grab a pretzel roll from Min & Bill's Dockside Diner and watch the 3pm Pixar Parade
    3:30p - Ride ToT
    4p - Get on the Water Taxi for EPCOT

    EP
    4:30p - Ride Maelstrom
    5p - Check and see if Fast Passes are available for Sourin. If they are, grab one, if not go to Test Track and grab one for it. Ride Mission Space.
    5:45p - Ride Sourin' or Test Track (depending on Fast Pass)
    6:30p - Ride Sourin' or Test Track (depending on Fast Pass)
    7p - Ride Spaceship Earth
    8p - Catch the Monorail to MK

    MK
    8:30p - Go to Frontierland and get a Turkey leg and get settled down to watch the Electrical Parade in a Rocking Chair
    9p - Watch Electrical Parade and then head over to Main Street to hunt for a place to watch Wishes
    9:30 - 1a Work my way around the park from Tomorrowland counter-clockwise, riding everything I can, but being sure to hit Space Mountain, Splash Mountain, Big Thunder Mountain
    2a - Back at the hotel...crash and plan to sleep in the next day.

    Englanddg - great plan.

    I think the only way to do this if the weather is semi cool. I can't imagine pulling this off in 90 degree temperature.

    Re: Doing all four parks in one day just for chucks?

    I honestly wouldn't try this. The thing is, by going to all the parks, you're rushing yourself and missing the enjoyment of each park. If you're wanting an adventure though, this wouldn't be to bad. I have to agree englanddg's plan is pretty good, but like I said it wouldn't be for someone who plans to thoroughly enjoy each park.

    I would never do this (!)
    You'll loose so much time travelling between parks, and rush all day.
    2 park, ok, but not more.

    But good luck if you do it, would love to hear your adventures

    Don't do it on thursday till sunday as crowds will be high. (23, 24, 25 nov) Crowdlevel Will be 10, 10 and 8 )
    Tuesday, wednesday and thursday (27, 28, 29 nov) Crowdlevel is 2 all these days

    Re: Doing all four parks in one day just for chucks?

    That would be pretty epic but challenging for me because once I'm in a park, it's hard for me to leave I love them all! I've never hopped, I always have Magic Your Way Base Tickets...the only time I've considered hopping is when I was at Hollywood Studios early and finished everything I wanted to do by 5 but then I waited for Fantasmic
    If I had to, I would go to Hollywood Studios first:
    Ride Rockn Roller Coaster, Great Movie Ride,See Walt's Animation, and then leave for
    Animal Kingdom:
    Mount Everest, Kilimanjaro Safari, Kali River Rapids, and then leave for:
    Epcot:
    Spaceship Earth, Soarin, World Showcase, and then finally
    Magic Kingdom:
    Space Mountain, Thunder Mountain, Pirates of the Caribbean, end the late evening in Fantasyland

    Early Start and Extra Magic Hours Finish power running to rides the whole time lol

    Anyone have suggestions for the short days of November 25 to November 30. I'm on my own! My DS won't even do this!

    Wow, that would be insane and just a little bit waste of time, unless you had the year pass to Disney World. But if I did it I would:

    Start off at Magic Kingdom:
    Buzz Lightyear, Tomorrowland Speedway, haunted Mansion, Swiss Family Treehouse, splash mountain and big thunder. And the. I would go on Pirates of the Caribbean about 5 times!!!

    Animal kingdom:
    Everest, Kali River Rapids, Dinosaur and eat lunch.

    Hollywood Studios:
    Great movie ride, tower of terror at least 3 times!!, rockin roller coaster, toy story mania, muppet 3d

    Epcot: test track, spaceship earth many many times!!!!, living with the land, soarin', O Canada show and eat dinner!


    And now I really want to go to Disney World!!

    Re: Doing all four parks in one day just for chucks?

    The craziest day I've had was three WDW parks and two Universal parks all in one day!

    I wouldn't do that again, though.

    My must-dos in the four parks would be:

    MK: Haunted Mansion, POTC, and Dole Whip

    Epcot: Soarin', Test Track, Cava de Tequila, Grand Marnier Orange Slush, the store in Japan

    DHS: Tower of Terror, RnRC

    AK: I could easily skip this park, but if I had to pick one thing it would be Dinosaur, I guess.

    And at the end of the day I think I'd pick IllumiNations because that goes nicely with the Grand Marnier Orange Slush.

    That's quite ambitious! Let's hope there are a lot of buses running that day!

    Re: Doing all four parks in one day just for chucks?

    This sounds like quite the challenge, but I would be willing to try it. If it were just my son and I....and as long as I had 6 more days to finish the parks and my days the right way>

    I'd start at AK at 8am (with Morning EMH) >>> hit the Safari and Everest
    Journey over to HS >>> grab a fast past for Toy Story or Ride, if there is no line, hit ToT and RnRC
    Take the Boat over to Epcot for Soaring and Test Track
    Take the Bus to MK to Space Mountain, Buzz Lightyear and Splash Mountain and them grab some grub and seat for the Electrical parade aand Wishes, near the castle

    I would love and hate to do this at the same time. I love to soak up every minute I can when I am at each park.

    I would try to plan it to start with AK since there is just one MUST ride for me there...EE. I Would ride Kali river rapids and try to watch THE FESTIVAL OF LION KING

    I would then catch a bus to Hollywood Studios and ride Star Wars, Rockin Rollercoaster, TOT. I would then catch a bus to Epcot.

    I'd ride Soarin, Space Ship Earth, Mission Space, and finish it off with Test Track. I would hop the Monorail to MK.

    I would ride Splash Mountain, BTM, Pirates and Haunted Mansion for sure. I would then try to fit in as much as possible.

    Of course this would have to require EMH at MK. I did not even account for food, that could be a separate thread itself.
