  • WDW in one day

    Hi, Im going to Florida for a wedding during Labor Day weekend. I only have enough time to do one park. Any suggestions? I have an AP to DL, so I wasn't sure if the Magic Kingdom was too similar to DL. I was leaning towards Epcot. If you had only a day which park would you choose? I have never been there. Thanks for the help.
    So many mouse ears, so little time...

      The Magic Kingdom is quite similar to Disneyland, yes because it was based off of it. But in all honesty.. I love all of the parks. There are things that make the Magic Kingdome unique too. But my best advice for you is to do what you want. If you're leaning towards Epcot, go to Epcot! You obviously have some interest to go there, there's so much to do, so many wonderful places to eat, and a fabulous night show! Follow your Disney-loving heart and have fun.

        Since you never been there I would suggest either Magic Kingdom or EPCOT. Since you been to DL, maybe a few hours in each.

          My advice: Go with Epcot. If you want to go with two parks (one in the morning and one at night), do Epcot at night.

              Get to AK for opening ride Everest, got to EPCOT ride Soarin and Mission Space hit MGM for RnRC, GMR and ToT then go to Magic Kingdom (because it is the best) and ride everything.

              It's possible.

                It all depends on what you like. If you like technology and exploring different cultures and want to see somehting different, Go to Epcot!

                If you like the certainty of Disneyland, go to Magic Kingdom.

                If you like DCA, go to D/MGM Studios.

                If I had time for one park, one day I would go to Epcot, but then it is my favorite anyway.

                For a one day trip, I'm not sure you can do justice to two parks, you can get an overview, but if you concentrate on one park, you will be able to spend more time on each thing you do.

                No matter what you do, go, relax, soak it all in. I feel that "Commando" touring causes one to miss too much.

                Just MHO, YMMV

                I don't ask for much... Just a few little things!

                  My response is totally biased: Epcot because it's my fave.

                  AK is great, but you can see animals in a zoo.
                  MGM is nice, but you can see similar stuff at DCA.
                  MK is awesome, but again, you can see a lot of similar stuff at DL.
                  Epcot is unique. There's no other place like it.

                    But I would also opt for dining at EPCOT because it's well worth your time. SO many good choices! And of course, being a Disneylandian you can skip the 2 hour wait for that 5-year-old Soarin' Over Cali. :cblush: But if you get a hopper I'm with tloolgb, ride E:E bright and early before hopping. :cgrin:

                      Is a one-day multi-park ticket available?
                      I'd probably skip EPCOT and go to the other three. EPCOT is more of a "stroll, buy, eat" park. Mission:Space is not worth the effort, IMO.

                      AK until noon (have to ride Everest), MGM for RnR and a real ToT as well as the stunt show and B&tB show, then cap it off with MK until close.

                        With only one day to visit (and I gather this is your first time in WDW), I wouldn't kill a bunch of travel time going from park to park. Go with Epcot - my favorite as well. Spend the morning in Futureworld, the afternoon in the World Showcase, get a fine dinner at any of the incredible sitdown restaurants in Epcot, and finish with the nightly showing of IllumiNations, the big fireworks/fountains/lasers/big-video-globe show. It'll be a great day!

                          Ooops, I forgot about Everest. In that case, if you wish to do two parks, I'd definitely go for AK in the morning & Epcot at night. Reason for Epcot at night is because you'll get something different. At MK, you'd see Spectro & Wishes (which are very similar to MSEP & Remember), at DMGM, you'd see Fantasmic (which is very similar to DL's Fantasmic) & at AK, the park closes early (plus, there are no good places to have Dinner). At Epcot, you would be able to end your day with Illuminations, a show that is like nothing at DL. (But if you can, stay the whole day at Epcot).

                            A few things we seem to be forgetting..

                            She's gonna be there for Labor Day Weekend (Dun-duh-DAH!).

                            Stick with 1 park, as the lines will be insanely long at all of them. Go, and enjoy Epcot. It handles crowds the best and of all the parks, is the most unique to WDW.

                            Epcot will offer nice hours, 9 to 9, and a plethora of new ride expiences.

                            Start with grabbing a Soarin' FP. haul it over to Test Track for a short wait and ride, haul-it back over to the Land and ride Soarin', then explore all of Future World West, hit SSE, then do all of Future World East (Energy, and M:S if you're in the mood - do not miss Energy, there's nothing like it in Cali). After that, have a nice walk around the World Showcase until Illuminations, stopping at the Circlevision movies and do not miss the American Adventure.

                            If she sees all of Epcot, not skipping any pavilions, she'll have a totally full day of new Disney experiences. Soarin' and HISTA are the only clones in Epcot, and they're both presented in a noteably different way.

                              Lol Yes, under "Magic your Way" pretty much your tickets will do anything for you, except sing and dance.
